We're going away on a cruise got a deal we could not refuse we'll be having fun on sea and in sun far away from those winter blues. For twenty-nine days we will be in our floating home on the sea with no internet (it's too dear to get) so you won't be hearing from me. We'll sail off from England so grey delighted to be on our way we'll reach the Azores that's where we will pause and there we will stay half a day. Then across the Atlantic we'll go relaxing and taking it slow a few days at sea so happy we'll be as long as those strong winds don't blow. When we have crossed we'll be eager to taste the delights of Antigua then we'll have a peek at sweet Martinique Barbados, St Kitts and Grenada. Then some other islands we'll see and soon after that we will be sailing back towards home to land that's our own another few days on the sea. So sorry if I've bent your ear explaining why I won't be here I'll be having fun on sea and in sun, but in four weeks I'll reappear. We're going on Sunday 11th Nov, return 9th December -- woo-hoo!

Thank you - a whole month away with no chores, being pampered. Can't be bad

@jaboUK id be bringing along something to work on....A month of vacation taxes my ability to sit and do nothing. Even reading is becoming old by that point.

@Morleyhunt I have loads of sudoku, brainteasers etc and there is a library on board. Plus there are classes and demonstrations you can attend on board, and the entertainment is brilliant. No way will I be bored

Yes, it's an exciting time for us. We've done a lot of cruising in the past but not for quite a while.

Enjoy. That sounds wonderful. I have never been on a cruise. Hubby has always wanted to go to the Azores.

This will be our 17th cruise, so we're old hands. It's a wonderful way to see the world. even though you only get a taster of each place you visit.

Yohoooooo! Safe travel and enjoy Janet! First time I actually saw a cruise ship like that was when we first went to NZ in 2015. We were on top of a hill and I saw the ship docked on the bay for a stopover. Have a great time Janet!

I may be able to get on the internet when we get to the islands, so I might just send some photos from there. Ships charge an exorbitant price for internet,

@SIMPLYD All the other ships I've been on charge a mind-boggling sum, so I don't suppose this one will be any different.

That's good of you to look those places up Chang. We are also going to Saint Lucia and St Martin, but I couldn't fit those into the rhyme

We intend to do just that - sit back and enjoy the cruise. We have a month because my husband doesn't really like to fly any more, and cruising is a more liesurely way of getting to the Caribbean. We got a great deal too. Thanks Ruby.
