Superb experience

We joined a private lunch party on HMS Warrior (excellent catering by Vanilla) and were given a fascinating tour of the ship beforehand. The whole experience was very enjoyable and informative and we were very grateful (of course) to our hosts. But we also want to congratulate the Warrior team on their professionalism!
