Silver Whisper
Silversea "Scotland's Tattoo" Cruise

Tilbury (London) disembarkation

Continued from: Port of Tilbury

Our Silversea "Scotland's Tattoo" cruise ended in Tilbury. Disembarkation went quickly and smoothly, thanks to good organization and the relative ease of unloading baggage and passengers from a 382-passenger ship. As we prepared to leave the Silver Whisper, we saw that crew members were already revarnishing and repainting sections of the pool deck. (A sailor's work never ends, at least on an impeccably maintained ship like the Silver Whisper.)

We'd arranged to spend the night at a hotel that Silversea uses for guests who embark in London or opt for a post-cruise hotel stay

We and other passengers who'd opted for the post-cruise stay were taken to hotel on an air-conditioned bus, and the next day's airport transfer got us to Gatwick with plenty of time for check-in and last-minute shopping.
