(Is this in the right place?) Thank you gentlemen for the warm welcome! What a pleasent surprise! It's great to see all the different areas of the world represented. Actually "Belle of the Boat" was a nickname my dad gave me after our second (family) cruise, I was 21 then. Does that answer your question?
