New members most welcome, lol. I know Southport well, it's a long way to Virginia from here.
We were accused of being snobs on another forum as we think you should get changed for dinner
. Not a lot to ask is it? Who wants to see hairy legs at dinner? and that's just the women, you know who you are, Linda, lol.
We were introduced to the Hibernia through some English friends who were fortunate enough to sail on her in the suite that the Queen used the week after they disembarked. Our friend used the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend during the week on this ship - and they said it was an amazing experience.
We just took a 7 day cruise on the Westerdam (Holland America) to Curacao and Aruba. Actually docked in Aruba next to a Thomson ship and met quite a few English folks - at the pub, what a surprise! Also met one of the Grumbleweeds who was entertaining on the Thomson ship. We understand the snob factor - one man tried to get into the dining room in sandals and trousers that were the length of a woman's pair of capris. Luckily, they sent him packing back to his cabin to get some more appropriate attire...
