So here we are. Our last day on the ship. This time tomorrow, we will be back home in England. It has been an amazing two weeks and everything I could have wanted from a honeymoon.

Yesterday evening, we dressed up in our finest outfits, for our last night on the ship. Claire introduced me to the slot machines in the casino. It’s probably a good thing she waited until the end of our honeymoon to do this, as we would have spent far too much time and money in there across two weeks. The machines were too addictive – they allowed you to just play one penny! Despite this, our tenner didn’t last that long.

After the slots, we headed to the theatre, where the excellent on-board entertainment song and dance group, Headliners, performed their fourth and final show of the cruise – Reel To Reel. A mix of song and dance from British films. They certainly saved their best act to last, with the James Bond performance raising the roof and earning a standing ovation.

The ship’s clocks went back last night, as we changed from European to British Summer Time. This gave us an extra hour in bed – how very autumnal! We have been doing more packing today and spent the remainder of our casino credit in those frightfully addictive slots.

This will be the last time I blog from the ship. When I get home, I’ll download all of my daily ramblings and stick them in some readable format on my website – although, if you’re reading this, you know that already. Come think of it, have you seriously read all fourteen days?

As I’ve already said, I’ve had a fabulous fortnight, with my lovely new wife. Claire has truly converted me to cruising. The luxury is incomparable with any other holiday you could take. I loved waking up every morning in a new country. I must admit, I was a little apprehensive about traveling – I haven’t been abroad since I was a teenager, when I went to Italy with my parents. I live in the small, safe city of Bath. I wasn’t used to going out of my comfort zone, so going to a load of foreign countries, as a grown and responsible adult, got me a little worried. The experience has made me forget about any fears I once had. The world isn’t a big, scary place. If you haven’t cruised before, I couldn’t recommend it higher enough. The service from every single one of the P&O staff has been amazing. Despite no doubt working long hours and being away from their loved ones for months, they were always friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, P&O for making our honeymoon so special. I can’t wait for our next cruise – I already have my eye on The Canary Islands, next summer!

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
