Taking OFF To Iceland

After a sweaty five hour drive in 25*C (not really, cos air con is brilliant!) we arrived in Southampton and wasted no time visiting the shops.... There's this massive shopping mall called 'The West Quay' and although Mrs Fox claimed that she can never find what she wants in M&S it didn't stop her coming out with a few items.....

After wandering around for half an hour trying to find the way out, we eventually ended up on the street and found a nice restaurant.

We've got a nice room on the fourth floor overlooking McDonalds....If they keep me awake tonight, I'll knock on the window and wake them up at six in the morning when I go for my run....

Re: Taking OFF To Iceland

Good morning Mags and Lion Queen, up early and ran along the docks for a swift five miler. Noticed the Oriana had berthed during the night and was waiting for us, so after a breakfast of Cornflakes and toast (that's continental for you!) we will leave the car at the cruise parking depot and be taken to the docks to be processed!.....

If all goes according to plan we should set sail at about sixish.
Ship Ahoy!.......

Have a great holiday OGF. I wasn't sure at first if you meant Iceland the country or Iceland the shop. Either way, enjoy yourself.

Almost time to switch from your road legs to your sea legs, Bob

Enjoy yourselves!

Re: Taking OFF To Iceland

Thanks guys, I'm somewhere off the coast of Cornwall and just taken out this internet package for the rest of the cruise so that I can keep in touch with you all....It's so expensive so I'll pass the hat round when I return....

The Oriana is the smallest ship in the fleet and the cabins are tiny, It's about the size of a large fishing boat....

Nice ship though with some very nice art deco touches.
Just off up for breakfast now so more later.....

Holiday breakfast is the best. You just turn up and there it is. Enjoy your day Foxy, you can always do a bit of fishing if you get bored on the journey but watch out for the Great Whites which are circling Cornwall at the moment.
