  1. Does anyone else enjoy building ship models as well as collecting them? As we wait for cruises to resume, I've taken it up. I built that attached model to represent a Blue Funnel Lines steamship. I used the Lindberg "Q-Ship" model kit as the basis.
  2. In the 1960s when Matson Lines ran South Pacific cruises with Mariposa and Monterey (US flagged), the end point of each cruise was San Francisco. Passengers who had boarded in Australia for the full cruise disembarked and stayed in a hotel in San Francisco for two nights, allowing a full day to clean and restock the ship. I think something like that model will be adopted. A full day will be given over to cleaning. Back-to-back passengers would stay ashore in a hotel.
