Queen Mary 2, Mein Schiff 2 (I) & Grand Princess
I was coming home on Grand Princess on the 20th September 2011 behind us from Nab were Queen Mary 2 and Mein Schiff 2.  While Mein Schiff 2 was due to dock at 7pm, we were both half an hour earlier.  Mein Schiff 2 and Mary had been on Round Britain cruises in opposite directions so probably passed each other.  Mein Schiff 2 had come from Guernsey, the port we'd abandoned twenty-four hours before them due to weather!  I was delighted Mary was behind because her fat bum isn't a nice view!
By now I'd been joined by my friend Aad and we both lamented how difficult it was getting Mary.  At least when the Tui appeared around Dock Head it was beginning to get lighter.
After disembarking, I caught a taxi to Town Quay and took the 8.30am ferry home.  Hythe Ferry's return tickets are now valid for a week from date of issue so that saved a taxi fare or paying one way each way and is a much better idea.  Phill was on the boat so nice to see a friendly face at that hour of the morning.
The review of my cruise can be found here.
