Lidl and Morrisons plus a couple of shops on their out-of-town retail park are the nearest things to the ship, but they are a ten to fifteen minute walk away on a very boring road. Out of curiosity we visited Harwich one hot and sunny Saturday and had a great seafood platter lunch on the pier. As it was such a lovely day we did all our shopping at Lidl and Morrisons and then returned to the pier to see the Jewel of the Seas sail past on her way to the USA. But, sadly, if you take away the sun, seafood platter and the Jewel sailing past, I would stay onboard - which is what we have done each time we have sailed from Harwich!

Most of us clamour to be first onboard, have a drink, have a meal and start the cruise experience as soon as poss...........Have to agree with the others, Harwich is about as exciting as wet Monday..........Wilba

I have never heard of any one not wanting to hang around on boar after registering, this is the time that most people want to explore the ship, have a meal and relax. There are 2 absolutely brilliant attractions (NOT) to see, the Electric Palace Cinema and The Ha'penny Pier

Harwich is a commercial port, and while there are a few shops and a super market there's not much ashore. You would probably be better to find a nice place on deck and watch the ferries!
