For any disappointed would-be MPs who be feeling the need to get away from it all this morning, the luxury cruise ship Silver Wind might be the answer.
Silver Wind passed Penarth Pier this just after o6:30 this morning morning – bound for Cardiff Docks – the latest of a several visits by cruise ships to Cardiff and Newport this summer.
The Silver Wind offers “al fresco dining with panoramic ocean views, warm clubby spaces for evening cocktails with friends” and most suites have ocean views .
Silver Wind left Holyhead yesterday afternoon and spent Election Night at sea, docking in Cardiff at 07.30. She’ll then head for the Thames where Tower Bridge will be opened for her .
Cruises cost around £11,000 per person – but with the possibility of a high-taxing Corbyn Labour Government around the corner, it could be the ideal opportunity way to use up some spare cash before the taxman grabs it.
