We waited till two to board the boat,
You needed until then to prepare.
Luggage unloaded and taken by Mark,
What have I forgotten, will I despair?

Greetings are given, our cabin shown,
Sharon gave all we needed to know.
Beckoned by gorgeous scones, cream and jam,
Our strong wills were tested, what a show!

Sailing by now, Steve the boat controlled,
Tewkesbury had offered a berth that night.
More food eaten with names being learnt,
Passing through locks, watch out, some so tight.

New morning breaks with more food to eat,
As Miles is such a whizz of a cook.
Summoned by Jen, so upward we go,
Quoits on the top deck, our aim we took.

Away from those screens that rule our lives,
Jigsaws were started, the cards came out.
Failure to answer the quiz questions,
Show the lack of our knowledge, no doubt!

Tinkling ivories plus blowing four pipes,
A trombone, saxophone and the flute.
Lively melodies and lilting tunes,
By next year will Diana be playing the lute?

By coach to a train we onward travel,
Speeds may vary but planning well done.
Watching swans from the top of the boat,
We were very lucky, lots of sun.

Our guides expounded, history came alive,
Along ancient cloisters to a sacred tomb.
Arches and chapels are viewed by all,
Church clocks striking their bells do so boom.

True calmness was shown by Captain Steve,
Leading his team through any mishap.
All played their part, so tasks ran smoothly,
Boats overtaking must judge the gap.

From chicken and pork, salmon and lamb,
Beef with such sauce do gather with greens.
Crumble and fool, banana roulade,
Our waists have enlarged, or so it seems.

Joined for a while, meet folks from afar,
Laughing together, sharing such fun.
Rich memories stored, hope others will come,
Nothing too small, all requests well done.

From Bewdley to the birds at Slimbridge,
Our Edward Elgar has cruised her way.
Left in wonder by a barges’ graveyard,
So here thanks from us do come your way.

I have just mailed a letter to Ricard Clements saying that my wife and I (84 & 86) rate this as the most enjoyable weekend we have had in 58 years of marriage., Your crew were so wonderful and what they did for us was exciting. The food was superb and the 'Skipper' gave us every attention together with his excellent commentaries. The cabins were 'great' and our fellow-passengers - as always a gigantic mix - added to our enjoyment. My wife, rather handicapped after brain surgery just 9 weeks ago thought the attention that your 'Quintet' were 'perfection'

Another fantastic cruise on the Edward Elgar. So relaxing, comfort on board excellent and of a high standard and everything about the daily trips to local points of interest so well planned & thought out. All the crew go above & beyond in their duties, always happy & interact well with all guests. The chef, Rowan, prepares and presents outstanding meals with fresh & local produce. The atmosphere on board is very relaxed and the crew play a large part in making this happen. The Skipper keeps you informed of interesting features along the canal/river and with an abundance of wildlife there is never a dull moment. Already booked to return in April 2018 - that says it all. It will be our third trip.

(Heart Of England Cruise) - Posted 2 years ago
We had a super time. Food, company and service were excellent. I particularly was so gratified that my husband David was so well looked after, every one of the crew were so understanding of his condition and had so much patience. It was Davids birthday on the Wednesday and a great fuss was made of him. Thank you so much for everything.
