It will be a landlubbers vacation, no cruising. I think we will try to visit Portsmouth so will probably buzz by Southampton on the train. Maybe we will shoot for a weekend trip to see what ships might be in port.
Hi there Bob, if you let us know the dates (either here or via PM) we'll keep an eye open for any special events in the area that might be of interest to you. Also please note if you are going to Portsmouth, that the Mary Rose is closed to visitors, and the Victory is undergoing restoration work, so all her rigging & masts have been removed

Anyway, if there's anything we can do to help you have a great land based break, then please let us know.
