Hi all I have been lucky enough to have had a 11 night cruise around the British Isles sailed out of Cardiff seen some wonderful places to many photos to add so will just add the map of the voyage met many lovely people and surprisingly the weather was good .

One highlight for me was we docked at Le Harve instead of Honfleur so I was able to visit St Marie’s cemetery where my grandfathers brother was buried in a WW1 grave it was so lovely to see it so well looked after and I am the first member of the family to see it I found it during my family history research so was very pleased to see it .

Wow that was quite a trip! There are so many wonderful places to see around the British Isles that a trip abroad is almost superfluous!
Love family history and to be able to see your Gt-Uncle's grave was a bonus.

never ought of doing a uk based tour. what were the seas like? I suspect a bit 'lumpy' at times.

Just my thoughts too, I would never have thought of doing that. Are you a good sailor? The Irish sea can be a bit of a horror at this time of year so sounds as though you were fortunate. Glad you managed to get to Mull - did you manage to see Fingal's Cave? Its between Mull and Iona.
I'm glad you were able to visit the war grave too.

Well I am not the best of sailor but the seas were quite calm sometimes at night they seemed a bit choppy the two days we were at sea the weather was lovely we were sitting in the sun on the top deck ! Yes really loved mull and the Shetlands St Mary’s was also lovely there was nowhere that I was not impressed with the city hall in Belfast the cathedral in Cobh Kirkwall to name a few ..
