Anyway, enough of that. Today - the final port, lisbon.

It has been amazing cruise - more when I get home.

Only fly in in ointment has been a passenger hassling me in an unwelcome way. Why is there always one weirdo?


Not Mr Pink shirt again :o ?

Make the most of the lovely warm sunny days! Its is horris in the UK and the forecast is not set to improve any time soon!

I thought of you the other day when tracking Saga Pearl 2 - she was in Punta del Este! Hope the seas stay calm(ish) for your journey back to Southampton.

I noted that one of the captains normally allocated to Balmoral has moved onto Boudicca. Who took over from Bent Ivar? Was it Lars Kjeldsen?

Thanks

I'm back! ...with the Balmoral cough. My voice is a bit dodgy which is a worry as I have 3 talks to give this week.

The Captains changed at Buenos Aires.....new captain was Captain Lars...who sometimes said "Boudicca" in his announcements.

I will tell you more when I am caught up with stuff
