First turnaround cruise from Liverpool
« on: May 25, 2012, 03:26 PM »
Hi everyone, this is a subject close to my heart. As I'm sure you are all aware ships are now being allowed to sail from and return to Liverpool. The first vessel will be the Ocean Countess and, whilst it is only a small ship who knows what will happen in the future! We are regular cruisers and after a transatlantic crossing on QM2 this summer, we will be boarding the Ocean Countess in Liverpool later on in the year. This does not mean we will not be sailing from Southampton again, on the contrary it just gives us more choice and can only do the same for people who live in the north. Maybe the folks down south may try it you never know!
 Also there may be an omen here the Ocean Countess was once the CUNARD COUNTESS, so the first ship out of Liverpool for many a year will be casting off right outside the Cunard Buidings front door! As I said earlier, you never know...

Great news, Alan!

And Ocean Countess too -- just shows that CMV are on the ball. This is a ship very high up on my "must try" list. I had good experiences with Marco Polo, and believe the company provides a fine service.

So, very much looking forward to your report when you return -- and bon voyage when the time comes!
