Not a Safety Officer in sight, we were ultra careful!!! (wot about the Cape Horners?!!!) at least there was a doctor on board,although falling from that height he would have been little help!

Definitely unsafe, that bucket on the left stage is not fastened on and might fall.

Was the ship sponsored by Guiness?

No the ship was not sponsored by Guiness its an ancient symbol that I think represents Orcades, I'm not sure, one of our imminent historians or P.& O. buffs I'm sure will enlighten us!!!! I know it was quite difficult to soogee & the rubber buckets would bounce real well if knocked off the stage!!

Doing a Google search Simon it has come up with a long forgotten Pict Language with smatterings of the Norse Viking Language
