Ports of call document

Post by Whynd1 » 02 Mar 2019, 16:37

Hi

Has anyone got Peter Dagnells ports of call document on e mail that they could send me.
I have been trying to download it and it either won't open or sends me to a place where you have to open an account.

I used to have it but it seems to have disappeared.

Many thanks
Lindsey

Peter's, I understand, is no longer available and there is nothing this site can do about it. Unfortunately given that many of the Members provided input.

Well done Brian. I had looked for it in the past and couldn't find it.

Thank you for the info all.

Will have a look.
The shore excursions have become available for our Around Britain cruise and they seem very expensive to me. Average cost for a four hour excursion £56 and I am someone who usually books excursions.
Some will like Greenock and Torshaven but was wondering on DIY in Dublin and Cobh.

Dublin and Cobh are dead easy DIY … providing the ship actually docks in Cobh which some don't.

Agree with MOB about Dublin. Nice place to wander around after catching the shuttle bus in. For Cobh, we moored at Ringsakiddy just across from Cobh and went into Cork on the shuttle bus. Cork was ok but we just wandered around the shops so can't tell you much about it. Cobh looked beautiful in the evening sunlight as we sailed out from Ringsakiddy and, if we do another Around Britain cruise, we would certainly make the effort to have a good look round there.

Greenock locals put on some 2 hour tours of the local area but we did the PO transfer into Glasgow and then used the HOHO bus to see the sights which was quite enjoyable. In Torshaven we just wandered the local area but will do a tour in July when we return there.
