Never in my wildest dreams did I see myself on deck on a cruise. Apart from ferry crossings in a variety of places in Europe, and a flirtation with the Merchant Navy that saw me weeks from a deck officers course when I left school, a life on the ocean wave was what my Dad did.
So when Claire found a "taster" cruise on a Saga ship from Edinburgh to Dover, I was a little surprised to find myself calling and doing the booking arrangements.
We are waiting for the travel info to arrive. It's two nights on the ship, all inclusive with a stop in Newcastle.
