Thanks... yes, squeezing a few Fred Os in between the biggies! I see there's two Princess ships this year, as well as two RCI... also NCL has returned after a few years, and Adonia will have left Fathom in June back to the UK, so that surprise will have had to be scheduled in.
After my next Soton cruise, we're using Newcastle for shorter cruises.

Cruise industry seems to ramping up around England, the influx of modern cruisers and all the baby boomers in retirement.
