    Agree about the shelias in tourist, but tips? The only tip we got was from the head waiter, do a good job and you can comne back next voyage.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Hi! James.
    Either the Winchester or ,Capetown .Palled up day before sailing ,with a Tyndell ,Tindell? qm. Unforgettable ,evening
    We went down to Pompey,few jars,then to the Wed.Dance,at some big hall.
    Escorted a sheila back ,by taxi,to one of those avenues ,like 6-7 th . something like that. Both thinking we're on a GOOD THING,entered the house,took us into the kitchen ,sitting there was her .Husband
    The atmosphere was rather strained.
    Long story Short.
    Turns out She'd transgressed by going out.and was scared to return alone.
    We finished up. forking out for a Joe Baksi,back to S'oton.
    So just wondering if twas you . Strange things happen at sea!
