Welcome aboard from northern England.
Definitely some lads from those companies knocking around the ship.
Find your way around and get to know the crew.
Have a good trip.

I did sail with Dan and we used to stop going up through the isles and pick up a couple of barrels of salt herring (i'm sure some booze was exchanged) from his brother who owned a fishing boat.Tweedie was the chief engineer.
I am in King city so no odour here lol

Welcome aboard. Enjoy the cruise.
My neighbour just returned from his first ever visit to TO this morning, when someone asked him how it smelled, he replied "Just like I have always imagined it would!"

Welcome aboard weewillie. I spent a lot of time in Toronto in Manchester Liners in 50's and 60's.

I also sailed with Hurricane Dan on the Emerald and Amethyst.
