This blog will continue, I hope (!), but you can contact me any time. The next cruise planned is in July 2012, for the 175th anniversary of P&O cruises, which will be both a shindig and a half and a fascinating insight into the monumental logistics of running a cruise line. Bringing all seven ships in the fleet to Southampton to toot their whistles (not horns, people, whistles) will be marvellous, but offloading 15,000 people and onloading 15,000 people possibly less so. Should be a laugh, whatever happens. Watch this space and thank you for sticking with me into 2012. Happy New Year.
