Aha! Spied the Prospect of Whitby. Had drinks there after attending the Lord Mayor's Show with English rels -taking my dad on his first trip back after emigrating in 1948, and my first ever visit. Loved every minute of your report drron

Weare now tied up alongside the Belfast and the Captain has done his job.We still have another night on board before disembarking.
Mrsdrron caught the CD,HD and chef having a talk on the pool deck.

And a last look around at the sights we had got used to.

Whilst lunching the crew were doing a thorough clean of the pool.

There was also a woman on the opposite bank seemingly looking for something.

She was still there about 3 hours later even going under decking.I think the tide forced her back.

We had dinner that night in La Terraza.It is at the stern so should have good views of Tower Bridge.Now we booked 60 days before sailing but the couple in front of us had not booked but the Maitre'd said he could fit them in.they got the last window table.

You always get a platter of antipasto and breads with roasted garlic.

The next morning our last view back at Tower bridge.
170701.170702.

170703.170704.
And surrounds.
170706.170707.
The Hotel Director,Fabien Leconte,watches as we depart.
170708.
He was only filling in for the regular HD whose wife was having their baby so he was given time off.Fabien is now in head office and talking to him I have great confidence that the takeover of Silversea by RCI is not going to result in a decrease in standards but more likely a better standard.Certainly on this cruise the food and wines were of a higher standard than we have had before on Silversea.

And a last point for anyone considering a cruise leaving or ending at Tower Bridge the Cheval Apartments are so convenient and our stay was great.If disembarking there is really not a problem with transport.When we left there was a queue of taxis in Little Thames Street.
170709.

So here endeth this Trip Report.I hope some of you enjoyed it and maybe got some ideas for future travel.
I will now be starting a TR of our 10 days driving around Southern England and the long journey home.
