You're a bug*er for punishment. :P
Nappies & Politicians should be changed often. Both for the same reason.

:D Aw, 'fess up, it sounds awesome, doesn't it!!
Those European cruises sound great.
I've done the NZ one too & it is such a beautiful country.
Hard to believe it is 3 years since our last cruises. We went on 2 that were only a few days apart, but that was back in 2015.

Doing one next year so we are.

Baltics, then maybe further a field if we like the good ships lolly pops.

Possibly fly cruise Caribbean sort of trip.

I might get to taste the lobster aboard and compare it to a Bury market lobster.

Wonder if they serve up Black Pudding on a cruise.

Chatting with some R N sailor's '' Submariners '' last night to be sure.

Good guy's.

It must have been a earth shattering experience for them to talk to you.

I have booked 2 cruises, apart from the China holiday tour.

The first cruise is in August on the Carnival Spirit (I like to do a different ship every time, as I buy ship fridge magnets).
It was one of those amazing 72 hour deals, got to do a 8 night cruise in a cabin with Balcony for $690 each approx.
Then I went and booked one for next March, the 2nd biggest ship, Ovation of the Seas......for about 13 - 14 days for about $1990 each.
This Ovation of the Seas has this North Arm they call, it goes way up above the whole ship, and will book it early to go into it for photo opportunities whilst docked near Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Anyway, have to squeeze in a trip to LA again, as it's been 2 years since we went to seek the long lost rellies, and we are invited to stay at their places.
It's lovely :-)
