Elaine visited Scilly on the cruise ship Adonia on her first cruise. "I had never been to the Isles of Scilly before, but I instantly fell in love," she says. "It was a really beautiful day and, even though I only made it to St. Mary's, it was obvious that Scilly is special - so peaceful and quiet; a throwback to the 1940s. I walked to the Garrison as well as through Hugh Town to the beaches."

Elaine is planning to come back to Scilly this September. "It will be a perfect celebration for my 60th birthday," she says. "I am looking forward to visiting the Tresco Abbey Garden and to walk the beautiful beaches.
