During our 50 minute cruise trip from Westminster Pier to Greenwich we see “the MI5 Headquarters, Thames House which was described in 1930 as the finest office building in the British Empire”, Westminster Abbey, where all the monarchs have been crowned since 1066, Covent Garden, St Paul’s Cathedral and the London Eye.

Having just boarded we headed for deck 14 and a special ‘welcome onboard’ buffet lunch. Spoilt for choice food wise this beautiful restaurant offers wonderful views ... and what a view greeted us, looking out over the rooftops of Venice and the wealth of artistic and architectural gems that make up this city. Several hours later we were to set sail past St Mark’s Square ... Venice must surely be one of the most iconic ports to start a cruise.
