Day 22 Dover to The Ocean Princess

We walked to Tesco’s this morning to buy a belt for Bill.  He can now keep his jeans from falling down and Guy is posting our clothes that we left behind.  We should get them when we return from our cruise.  We got a taxi to the cruise terminal this morning and found it so very easy to board a small ship with only 600 passengers.  There seemed to be more staff than passengers and boarding was completed within 20 minutes.  We did a tour of the ship and while it is a smaller ship than the Dawn Princess, there are many similarities and we felt very much at home.  Most of the passengers seem to have come from USA, but there are a few Canadians, Italians and English.  We are on a table with Americans.  While we seem to be the only Australians on board, many of the dancers and singers are Australians.  We set sail for Norway tonight at 5.00 p.m.  It was still light at 11.00 pm.  We have been given an upgrade and have a minisuite with a one and a half sized balcony.  The room is huge and the bathroom has a bath as well as the usual shower and toilet and basin.  There is so much storage space that we have not used it all.  We have a king size bed, a table and three chairs and a couch and on the balcony there are four chairs and a table.
