Future Cruises

This will generally be a short page – indeed, probably always – and will include links to any cruises that we might have booked for a future date.

In June 2020 we shall be cruising on Aurora. We’re doing a 16 night cruise in the western Mediterranean which will call at some smaller ports – it’s advertised as a ‘Discovery’ cruise. We’ve booked a Deluxe Balcony cabin, which on Aurora is pretty special! – or so I’m told.

In the event we cancelled this cruise in October 2019. We were expecting that Val would retire in spring 2019 but in fact she didn’t. Then it turned out that we would need to go to the USA in April 2020 for our daughter’s wedding celebration – she moved to America in March 2019, married, and a celebration was planned for April 2020. This meant that Val didn’t have enough annual leave for both trips (the cruise and the visit to the US) so we decided to cancel the cruise. As it has turned out, of course, we didn’t get to make the trip to America either!

Then in December 2020 we’ll be doing a 7 night cruise around the English Channel on Iona, just before Christmas. This will be a complete contrast to the Aurora cruise, I’m sure – the itinerary, ship, and conditions will be completely different. This being December in the English Channel, we’ve booked a Sea View cabin. Low down and amidships – as I said, it will be December in the Channel!

At the moment this cruise is still on the books, but as I write – in lockdown, late April 2020 – I’m not confident that it will happen. Update May: We’ve just cancelled it and re-arranged it for the equivalent cruise in 2021.
