I thought that those of you who have also had the pleasure of sharing a voyage with Nigel would want to know of his passing.

I just went and had a read of Azamara Army and Death by Azamara as I didn't know about them or indeed his blog and posting history here. Absolutely hilarious. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of them.I remember his priceless posts and always hoped one day he would be aboard with us, sorry to read of this sad news
Does anyone know if he was on the Quest in November 2011?Yes, that was him I'm pretty sure. I was on Quest in November 2011 and he said something to me about staying in Asia. I usually get a little bored with reading blogs because my attention span is poor, but I continued reading Death by Azamara this morning for my laugh to start the day.
I sat at a table with a very interesting chap one morning during that sailing. He told me how he was on the way to Asia somewhere to spend 2 months in a temple with the monks. He was an interesting fellow...
I didn't catch his name, but for some reason, that encounter has remained with me, and I have thought about that guy now and again, wondering how his trip went.
He also said something about working in the "Arts".
Funny in life, how we meet so many but some just stand out.
Blessings to the departed.
