Cochin was quite an easy place to spend a low key, DIY day – other friends walked to a landing point for small passenger ferry across to the old town and spent a nice day there looking at the old Indo Dutch buildings, theChinese fishing nets and doing some shopping before returning to the port by Taxi – if we return to Cochin in the future that will be our plan for the day.
We only had a short visit to Muscat on a repositioning cruise from Dubai to Singapore with sunset falling about 4 hours after our planned arrival time so we took the advice of the Cruise Addicted Facebook group on our options and the best spot for a perfect sunset view. As you know, I am a sucker for a sunset and I’m happy to report that the advice was spot on so I am sharing here with you too!
Le Havre is in the Département Seine Maritime part of the Normandy region, situated on the north coast of France. I think of it as the ‘marmite’ of cruise destinations – as many people love it as hate it – ‘m in the former group! Le Havre is often labelled ‘for Paris’ which is actually 140 mile and about 3 hours away. Normandy is a region of France famous for its food, in particular apples. sea-food and dairy products.
Cobh, a sheltered deep water port, within the second largest natural harbour in the world. An extensive history and a multitude of names, being variously labelled Cork, Cobh and occasionally even Cove! The last port of call for the Titanic and pivotal in the story of Irish Emigration.
