Postliminary:
We had a remarkable trip sailing the Baltic Capital’s aboard the Norwegian Sun and have vowed to return on a future endeavor. We enjoyed 1 pre-cruise day in London at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel London Kensington. While in London we took in all the major sites like Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and St. Paul’s Cathedral. In the evening, we met up with Author and Writer David Rumbelow (crime historian), for the Jack the Ripper Haunts walk from Tower Hill tube. During this two-week journey, we had a remarkable vacation with the parishioners of St. Leo’s along with meeting and making new friends on-board. We also got the added treat of a comprehensive Behind the Scenes Tour of the Norwegian Sun thanks to cruise director Zolt.
