The Spirit of Chartwell carried Queen Elizabeth II during her Diamond Jubilee pageant – and it definitely has an air of regal grandeur about it. This luxurious liner almost doubles as a museum of marine history, with genuine pieces from great ocean liners on display.

The ship’s two magnificent portholes, art deco clock and bar stools are all originals from the RMS Windsor, which sailed between Britain and South Africa from 1960 to 1977. In the staterooms, wall lights are reclaimed from the SS France – one of the longest ever passenger ships – and feature fully restored antique details such as Royal Navy Ships badges.

Lavishly decorated with cream mahogany finishes, each cabin features air conditioning and a private en suite bathroom.

The saloon deck is where you’ll enjoy fine cuisine and an evening night cap at the George Bradshaw restaurant and adjoining Somerset Maugham Piano Bar. Upstairs, on the sun deck, the Charles Dickens Solarium and elegant teak sun loungers allow for al fresco dining and wonderful views of the Douro Valley.
