Onboard the Grande Francia leaving at 1800

Left the house at 1200 and the lovely Easterine dropped us right at the ship! No one asked for ID or ticket and we were escorted straight to our suite!

Me on the Grande Francia ay Tilbury Docks

Our steward introduced himself as Elberto and gave us a grand tour. There are decks at three levels, some filled with cargo but plenty of deckchairs for sunbathing! Elberto then took us around to see the day room with TV/DVD player, sofas, little library and games. The gym has a pool table, table football, press benches, and exercise bikes. The dining room has a rectangular table for the officers with the captain’s chair at the head and two round tables for passengers! There are laundry and pantry rooms too.

The suite is amazing and has everything anyone can ever need including the only bathtub on the boat! The rooms are actually a very good size and has a fridge. So I might pocket up some chocalates in Antwerp an cheese in France.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are at 0730, 1100 and 1800 each day and all served in the dining room. I spied the menu for tonight and it’s four courses with wine. Extra wine is only €6.50 a bottle!
