We sailed past the Scilly Islands en route from NYC to Rotterdam. They were so lovely that I wanted to hurl myself off the ship and swim to shore.

Always helpful, cheerful, & able to give good advice on everything from the food festival to the ferry times & tides. A trip to Scilly without stopping by is a trip you didn't get the most out of. And on a fab beach!
