Guild Houses & Gourmets Mini-Cruise, Dec 16 - 19, 2001
The Itinerary

Embarkation officially commenced at 3pm at the Mayflower Terminal, Southampton. We arrived just before, dropped the luggage with a porter, and checked the car in with Andrew's Shipside Services, who take the car and drive it away for you from the drop-off point. Nice and easy, but at £30 for 3 nights, a bit more expensive than parking at Dover.

Black Prince at night

We were aboard within 15 mintues of arrival at the terminal and our bags arrived in the cabin not long after. Unpacked in a few minutes and set off to explore the ship before the Welcome Aboard Get Together with free bubbly in the Neptune Lounge. We sailed early at 4.40pm; last check-in was 4.30 so everyone must have been aboard well before then. 260 NM to Antwerp.
