British people get drunk and cause a scene. Sounds like a Fri/Sat night in any town on this island.

Really, the alcohol problem here is woefully ignored. Just ban advertising of the stuff if you...

I would rather have a well-rested welder than some slave of the accountant, as the Norwegian Epic appears to be.

Great news in that report. Well done to all at Able UK for creating a good industry for treating developed nations' shipping waste. A fitting place for the QE2 to end her days, although I expect...

I see the Marco Polo ex Alexandr Pushkin is having a refit prior to further service. Just her, the Oceanic and Saga Ruby as the last "classic" liners left in service, I believe.

My old man was in Blue Star for about 8 years from 1955, I think. First line fresh out of Pangbourne. Must get his slides scanned in some day.

Did ships of the past use to face this problem, whether...

It was so, so sad when she sank during tow from her former role as a restaurant (I think) in Japan to a yard in China. One would have thought that with such a lovely, vintage vessel all precautions...

Amazing what a difference a funnel can make. Much prefer how she actually looks. The H&W design makes her look like a bit like a ferry of the day. Not a bad thing, but the actual funnel, with the...
