... St. Peter Port. We ended up visiting the house where Victor Hugo lived when he wrote Les Miserables. I can see how this would be an inspiring location! This evening was one of 2 formal nights on the ship. We dressed up, had our picture taken, watched the champagne waterfall, listened to the captain's speech, and had a wonderful dinner. After dinner we caught a show and had a nightcap and a dance at one of the bars on the ship. ...

We've spent the last couple of days anchoring (a way of reining in the expenditure).
After a pleasant sail we anchored outside of St-Vaast-La-Hougue. When we got there there were quite a few boats at anchor, most were waiting for half tide so that they could get into the harbour. By night ffall there was four of us - 2 being catamarans.
The anchorage itself was very pleasant with islands on either side - the fortress ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel, Jersey St. Helier
This hotel is an impressive new property in Jersey, where we spent a 2-night stay at New Year 2007. To be honest, I would probably not have considered staying at the Radisson at all, as I imagined an exhorbitant rate, but we were lucky enough to research a great deal with our flights through Expedia.
We have just returned from Jersey where we stayed at the Radisson SAS Waterfront Hotel.
This was our first visit to Jersey and were aware that this hotel was more focused towards the business traveller. Yes, the hotel hasa minimalist feel to it; almost clinical as mentioned by a previous reviewer, but this in no way detracts from the many positives this hotel offers.
I visit Jersey 2-3 times a year on business. Having previously stayed the the old De Vere Grand, and more recently at the Pomme D'Or, I decided to try the new Radisson, which had only been open two weeks when I stayed.
Stayed for one night on 8th November, and loved the place. The room (a standard room) was fantastic - stylish decent furniture and a great feeling of space - not just floor space but a high ceiling as well. Had all the bits and pieces you'd expect from a decent hotel room, including a well-stocked mini bar. I ordered room service and my meal arrived in under 20 minutes, cooked perfectly and hot!
