    ...and on the one we were on, the on-board staff did lots to entertain the passengers milling around on the platform. It was all 'rather lovely.' :)

    Yes, however last year the heat was very welcome and it was a bit of extra weight to test BIL!

    However, in all honesty although the GPS will be coming, this trip is all about the experience and getting in the festive spirit.

    Once you are getting into your retirement it does tend to go faster each year. :(
