We have now officially started our winter cruise

We have now set off towards our winter cruise. We are currently at Margaret's sister's in Reading for the weekend, before she takes us down to Southampton on Tuesday. There we meet up with friends who are making their own trip from Southampton to Brisbane to visit friends, travelling on P&O Cruises MV Aurora. We meet our own friends, who arrive from Australia on Tuesday evening, and board MV Oriana ourselves on Thursday to travel East, calling at 38 ports in 25 countries before arriving back in Southampton in the middle of April. Hopefully the weather will be better than it is here. Our first call will be Oporto, before moving on to Naples, then Malta, heading through the Suez Canal towards Australia, before heading back across the Pacific and the Panama Canal to join the Caribbean and the Atlantic towards home.

The above image is MV Oriana berthed at Curacao in the Caribbean, last year. We will visit here again this year, but many of our ports will be totally different, and many through Asia that we have never seen.

If I can get hold of economic internet access I will post updates here.
