Am I really old enough for a Saga holiday? - #Chicandstylish #LINKUP

Hi there my friends.
Hope you are well.
I'm actually away at the moment, but will be home later.  
Hubby and I have been away for the night, we've been taking part in the Saga Shakedown before they go back into service.  The Spirit of Discovery was our home for the night and we took full advantage of all the facilities including the bars, restaurants and evening entertainment.  We had to follow all the Covid safe directions which started with taking two tests that obviously had to give negative results and we had to have had both our jabs.  Mask wearing was needed as we would usually do when visiting restaurants and bars. We didn't actually leave the dock, as it was only for the night, so a nice tropical sunset might have given us a prettier outlook.  I'm not sure if cruising is my thing or not, but it was certainly very nice to be spoiled by everyone on the boat.  It made a really nice change to be away somewhere different too. Many thanks to my nephew who works for Saga for the opportunity. X

I knew exactly what I was going to wear for both days and the evening, and everything fitted into my overnight case beautifully.

I'll be sharing my outing and outfits with you soon, do look out for it, until then have a super week and don't forget to add to the #linkup below.

Time for the #Chicandstylish #LINKUP party.

  1. Jacqui,

    Wow, that sounds like a fabulous way to experience a cruise without actually sailing. It sounds like you had a marvelous time. I'm looking forward to hearing more of the details.


    1. It was super fun, really given me a taste to cruise. Thanks for stopping by. x

  2. Sounds like a fun day! Hope you're not too hungover! xx

    1. Really loved it Laurie, would like to try a proper cruise now. No sore head thankfully. xx

  3. Sounds great Jacqui. Hope your having a lovely time :) Thanks for hosting.

  4. What a fun idea! I'm not entirely sure I'd get on a cruise ship (Ruby Princess kicked off the covid infections and first lockdown here, haha!) but it's nice that the industry is starting up again for those who want to go :)

    Thanks for the link up!

    Hope that you are having a lovely week :)

    Away From The Blue

    1. Yep i know what you mean, my BIL didn't come because he was worried. It was very safe, two tests before getting on the boat and hand washing stations along with hand sanitizer (everywhere) and mask wearing - I felt completely safe. xx Have a great week Mica. x

  5. I love your outfit! Enjoy your vacation! Stay safe!


  6. How fun! Love the button detail on your trousers! Thank you for the linkup!

    1. It was really a super overnight stay, I think I would now like to try a proper cruise. x

  8. Jacqui, it sounds like a wonderful little getaway! I am so glad that you enjoyed the pampering! I really like your white cropped sailor style trousers. So cute!


    1. It was perfect, and came along at the right time. Thanks for leaving such lovely comments. xx

  9. I still love those culottes of yours! I just saw your pics on instagram: it looks like it was a fun evening! And thank you for the feature! I want to feature the jacket with an all white outfit when it cools off a little.

  10. What a delightful getaway- I love boats and especially cruise boats!

  11. Wonderful! So nice to get away, the boat looks amazing! The trousers are lovely as is the whole look! Ive never been on a cruise!

  12. That sounds like a lovely treat and chance to try a cruise. The ship looks massive! X

  13. That sounds fun! Have a great time!

  14. How lovely! Looking forward to seeing your outfits and hearing more about it xx

  15. How nice to getaway for the night! I went on a cruise with the school when I was 13 but it was far from luxurious - the food was so bad I lost half a stone in a week! We'd bought all the cans of overprized fizzy drink and chocolate bars from the little on-board shop by mid week! I love those culottes, the buttons are fab details!
