All aboard

Here we are in the glamorous Southampton docks aboard the Queen Victoria. We are about to set sail on a cruise up the Norwegian coast, around Iceland and back to England via a quick stop in the Faroe Islands.
I had hoped that the English summer weather might have been a bit kinder for our departure. The sea is looking pretty choppy and I have very low hopes of seeing much sun as the cruise progresses.
We booked the cruise at the last minute as for some reason they had not sold out in advance, but we are very excited and we have lots of warm clothes with us.
Our courtesy champagne is on ice and the captain has just announced that we are leaving soon.
Bon voyage I hope.
