No way can Captain McNeill be close to retirement! He is absolutely the BEST ship's Captain we have ever had the pleasure to sail with! Ever present, ever jolly. The man doesn't look a day over 50.

Encouraging news! How did you arrange for the invites to be sent out? Did you provide cabin numbers or just the names of those on your M & G list?
