or Sunday the Seventeenth.
fbb and Mrs fbb share with Billy Connolly a less than overt enthusiasm for the idea of cruising.
But clearly 33,500 good folk were either leaving or joining their imprisonment over the weekend of 16th and 17th July with substantially more enthusiasm. Perhaps imprisonment is a little unfair; fbb doubts whether Her Majesty's hotels can offer luxury like this. On "Grand Princess", in addition to SIX different restaurants you can "snack" at any time, anywhere ...
On second thoughts, fbb MIGHT (just!) be able to slum it in a stateroom with balcony; in the interests of internet journalism, of course.
