Where I stayed
On the Ferry
The show was done! Bam! We're off! The next show was about to start! We raced for the boat at Harwich, stopping only for something to eat at Kettering. Despite the panic, we arrived in comfortable time and only spent 10 minutes in the car park before boarding.
Being a family of six, we had to split cabins. Nick took the girls to the four berth at one end of the boat, while I went off with Mel to the two berth, at the other end of the boat, on a lower deck. They couldn't have been further apart if they had tried.
The cabins were good quality, comfortable and smart, with a nice duvet
We snuggled down.
"The Bureau de Change is open on deck seven."
We turned out the light.
"Would Mrs McKenzie please collect her keys from reception."
We dozed for half an hour.
"In case of emergency please put on all your warm clothes."
I unplugged the phone. It didn't help.
"Slumdog Millionaire will be starting in five minutes."
Eventually they shut up, but not until long after midnight. With the time difference, it was 5.30 English time when we had to get up for breakfast.
