Jim pictures don't actually do it justice. It was worth every laboured breath I took!!

Island life suits you
As a maritime man, I feel your report from these islands stands out as a bit of an emotional high point from the many (hundreds now?) of cultural tours you've reported on around the world from Siberia to Tonga. Clearly these islanders made a connection, and your appreciated their situation, perhaps more than some of the other villages you've been to with larger (?) cruising groups. I wonder if this could be a sign of the times for a different kind of holiday in future? (the people of Venice will thank you!) Snarko

Making a connection
Thanks for your kind words Andrew. As an ex journalist I hope the grammar of this blog wasn't too off kilter!!!

Guess which photo I liked?
No prizes, I loved Pans People to look at, hated their dancing!

Capt  Giuseppe Maresca

Is Captain Maresca still on board
I'm sorry satti but I don't have that information available. The Magnifica was back in 2012. We sailed on the Orchestra in 2014 and had Captain Maresca again so it is probable he will be on a different ship when you sail from Rio. It is probably best if you contact MSC direct who may be able to answer you question. Regards

Thanks Snarko. It wasn't difficult as the Opera House is very photogenic regardless of angle or time of day. It made my job that much easier!

Glad to read that you are travelling again - for a while we thought that perhaps you had run out of world to visit !

Thanks for your comment Anne and Philip. I'm afraid you can't get rid of me that easy. I came up against technical difficulties for the South East Asian trip so that is still a work in progress. In the meantime, I'm committed to complete this trip within the next few weeks before our trip to Peru that starts on 1st June 2019

Entertaining
An enjoyable read about your stroll around Singapore’s historical centre. Glad that you tried the durian and Singers Sling, which I only had a sip of years ago as it was so disgusting. Prefer G&T occasionally. John paid AU/Sing 22.50 at the Marina Bay hotel and wasn’t even allowed to view the infinity pool! Loved the photo of you drinking from lion 🦁 fountain. Very artistic.

The picture of the commander maresca is very classy, ​​very elegant, gentleman, I would like to see him again on a MSC boat; what is its destination? Sophia

Yet another view from the old square in Havana

Great photos
Excellent shots, Chris; looks like you had amazing weather and presumably this is before Hurricane Michael! The walking tour sounded very revealing - many pictures appear to have nobody around in the streets..

Yet another view from the old square in Havana

Great photos (I know!!)
Thanks for your comment Snarko. Luckily we were in between cruise ships so most of the passenger had not yet arrived. The streets were much busier on the day of Embarkation. Hurricane Michael. There ill be something about this in a future episode!!

Selling the AlSkan cruise
Glad you’re enjoying it Lynne. I would certainly recommend Alaska as a cruise destination at least once in you’re lifetime!!
