Waverley 2018

Recommended Posts

Well the brochure arrived today with exactly the same itineraries and dates as, well, seemingly every year since the beginning. Have they no new ideas? No notion that once one has been round the island or to Swanage and Lulworth Cove there is limited desire to do it again? £47 for the Round the Island plus travel to the port plus on board spend would probably near £140 for the two of us to do the same trips as we've done several times in the past. It's not particularly tempting I'm afraid.

Baffles me too, and the South Coast, which should provide a good potential for visitors is, as usual consigned to mid September when there is always a high chance of windy weather as regular cancellations in previous years have demonstrated. They'd do far better in the school summer holidays and taking in Cowes Week.

I think, although not certain that it is still the case, that Waverley has to spend summer in Scotland.  Something to do with funding from Glasgow council?

Since she no longer calls at Bournemouth, and Poole is a rarity, unless I take one of her excursions in another part of the country then there seems little point.  I found her handy for a day out in Swanage or Yarmouth without fussing about with trains and buses beforehand.  I can at the end of the day go to those places anytime.  I have thought about the Thames Forts, but my worry is that I spend all that time and effort to get there and she is cancelled.  I would probably have to get a hotel as well.  Would be a large waste of money
