  1. Unclean, unclean. OH, a medic, is displaying symptoms so we are isolated, him for 7 days me for 14 or until one of us kills the other, whichever is the earlier. Any lepers bells going cheap ( I know they go clang really)? Rp
  2. Away and feel yer head. I plan to retire us to Bognor TTS. OH doesn’t know that yet. Completely off topic, have you seen the website of Norn Iron Tees? Very funny and great presents for those of us who may come from a similar background and who may have a similar sense of humour. Do google it. Off to find my English/Bognor phrase book. Rp
  3. We are supposed to be on the 26th May sailing. Considering an alternative holiday in Bognor if all goes pear shaped. Rp
  4. Too right TTS. I just thought I’d go a bit international. Texan? Moi? Big and noisy but not Texan. Alamo is correct of course. Next question please? Rp
  5. To quote a learned judge "I concur". There is no point trying to second guess what will happen with this known unknown in several weeks' time, IMHO. We now have the option to cancel at very short notice and I expect this will be extended to take in later sailing dates if necessary. I am looking forward to concentrating on trivia - so on that note, what happened today in 1836? Rp
  6. and what about Ceylon, Calcutta, Bombay......? I've not heard of those recently. Rp
  7. We went to Norway last year and did the Flam railway trip by ourselves. The SS excursion did not go to the end of the line but stopped at the penultimate station where guests had coffee and cakes and waited around for about an hour before catching the train back down to the port. We decided that the last thing we needed was more food so we did our own thing at a much better price and the SS trippers got on our returning train. Those with whom we spoke said they would have preferred to go on to the end of the line than have the stop for refreshments as they felt they were just hanging around, rather aimlessly. We did pre-book our tickets quite a bit in advance to be sure of getting them. Just thought if you are prepared to be a little adventurous. Rp
  8. If you go into the "My Silversea" section of the SS website, where you can book shore excursions, dining etc, you will find a Guest Information area. Within that, there is a Special Request section and under Special Meals and Dietary Requirements, you can click on a link which calls up a long list of special diets, of which vegan is one. That will give the ship forewarning of your requirements but you should of course, speak with the Maitre d' when you get on board to check all is logged and in order. I hope this helps Rp
  9. Lois, it is of course CAFE Aranda, not cage. April is a lovely time to go. Have fun.We will be there in May Rp
  10. Lois - Malaga - Cage Aranda- churros and hot chocolate, yum scrum even if the sun is belting down. Well, maybe not if it is boiling hot. You should also try to get to Ronda which is not too far away, probably even travelling time with Granada but go early as it is a small town and we tourists/visitors/travellers can completely over-run it. When are you going to be there? There is useful info from a Malaga resident in the Spanish ports of call section here Rp
  11. Les - off topic but is all ok with you? I cant recall where your office is now but I think you used to be near London Bridge? Rp
  12. Just seen your news Lois, and by the time you get the chance to read this, hopefully you will have been in and out and all done successfully. Good luck Rp
  13. I think your voyage would be a tad on the rough side for me and I am sorry that trivia is not going as well as expected. Is it a problem with the sort of questions being asked, are they skewed towards one nationality rather then broad brush? Mind you , I recall one colonial gentleman chastising us for pronouncing Wodehouse - as in P.G.- as "Woodhouse". He was volubly insistent that it was pronounced "Woadhouse". Gentle readers, we keelhauled him. I simply cannot imagine 17 teams in the bar, however, it must be bedlam. Hope things improve but if not , keep taking medicinal spirits. Rp
  14. Not brilliant. The Champions League final was unobtainable on the Wind this year with a very British passenger list. Actually. You might be lucky on the Spirit. Four years ago OH reminds me we were able to persuade the CD to show some games in the card room. Rp
  15. I have seen immaculately tailored evening Bermuda shorts,with a dinner jacket long socks and patent leather evening pumps of course, at Glyndebourne. If they satisfy the dress code there, then I can’t imagine how they would transgress the dress code on P&O. Rp
