    We also sailed from Harwich on Discovery Mags. She was an old traditional ship that had charisma and a certain charm that you either loved or hated. She was well past her best when she eventually went to breakers.

    My avatar is of Discovery; I have often thought of changing it but decided that as we enjoyed our cruises on her so much, I would leave it.

      Thanks for t he memories Del.

      We sailed from Harwich 3 times; once on Jewel of the Seas (our first ever cruise in 2009) and twice on Discovery in 2010 & 2012.

      It was a great port to sail from for us as it was not busy and was easy to park our car.

        Problem with Harwich we found was on return suitcases weren't stored under cover and as it was raining they were soaked.

        Apart from that we loved our cruise to the Baltic on Jewel..

          Hi Garf

          Although we only live 20/30 minutes from Harwich, we have never sailed from there.

            Just looked at my Avatar again and realised that it is not Discovery but Boudicca before Fred changed their fleet livery.

            My memory is obviously worse than I thought; either that I should go to Specsavers.

            I guess the same applies though, loving the old traditional ships because Boudicca could well be one of the ships to leave the fleet now that they have bought 2 newer ones from HAL.

Two years later we tried the Infinity on the same itinerary and it was just as good. Here’s a pic of the identical Infinty taken moored up at the port for Bilbao....forgotten the name, BTw we had the same Greek captain on both cruises, very good at interacting with the passengers he was.

              Hi AaS
              The port for Bilbao is Getxo

                  Acadia is currently anchored off the coast of Suffolk at Southwold. A bit of a tourist attraction according to the local,press. 6CD5D905-CE33-4F65-96FF-D4049A79B1F7.jpeg

                      My ship fix is looking at the three of Azamara ships docked in King George V dock, Shieldhall, Glasgow until sailing starts again.
                      don't want to work, just want to cruise.

                        Almost the same spot. I took this after getting off the Jewel of the Seas, our first cruise in 2006

                          QV went on a sightseeing tour to Margate over the last few days.

                          5day track, back in Southampton today.

                            We took a trip out yesterday for a change of scenery, Portland Bill was our destination and its somewhere we have always enjoyed visiting plus its a nice sea venue. Going across the Chesil Beach road we spotted all the ships anchored in Weymouth Bay. Loads of them just sat out there and it is really a sad sight. They should be all over the world and not sat just off the coast of Dorset and empty of passengers. If I had got my brain into gear I should have gone to the Osmington end of Weymouth to get a better view but as it happened we ran out of time any way.

                              I saw them the other day when in the vicinity. They looked rather sad.
