  1. Did the vote count for anything? Seems to be a bit predetermined.
  2. Thanks for the comments. First time in the Fat Duck wasn't too difficult, as they hadn't put timeframes on the bookings. Second time around was more difficult, booking opened 60 days in advance and we had five phones trying at the same time, one of them got through. That wasn't as hard as a booking (made in December) we have for Eipic in Belfast for late June (2021) when they are serving the Great British Menu by Alex Greene. That took three phones over an hour, and there wasn't a lot availability left.
  3. First instinct was Forth, but I've settled on Discovery.
  4. I'll probably be accused of being a foodie or food snob, ( at least thats what my sister calls me), not true. We just happen to love great restaurants which serve nice food. We have developed a habit of visiting Michelin Starred restaurants, although we equally enjoy the Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurants ( good food at moderate prices). All in all we get as much pleasure eating in Hawker stalls in Singapore which have Michelin status as we do in 3* restaurants. I have complied a list of our restaurants visits to the Michelin * restaurants, my memory can't stretch to the Bib Gou
  5. Elro is a star. It's been great to watch his career progression from our first Az cruise on Quest in 2013 (when we first met him in Windows Cafe), right up to meeting him in Belfast when transferring his Butlers role from Journey to Pursuit.
  6. This where we may have to agree to differ, Belleek does absolutely nothing for me whatsoever. It is produced in the most picturesque village, however that is a far it goes. I do like the idea of asking for the black mark Belleek as a delaying tactic. I do agree with you about the limitations of tours when cruise ships come into Belfast. There is museum in Co Tyrone that Americans would love, and yet it is never on the itineraries. It is called the Ulster American Folk Park and was originally funded by the Mellon family who hail from that area. It tells the story of
  7. I think the Queen Mother was very partial to a G&T, and Princess Margaret probably even more so 🙈 Lets hope we meet onboard soon, alongside Host Jazzbeau and I'll be well sorted for G&T's
  8. Alas Gin is not for everyone. It's a genuine case of one mans gin being another's poison. We are really lucky, there are presently over 60 craft gins being produced across the whole of Ireland, so we are working our way through them gradually! Wish me luck.
  9. Host Jazzbeau and I have a lot in common, a love of gin and fever tree (he's buying me a Silent Pool when we meet!), Mac's and not doing Windows!! The easiest method for accents etc on any iOS device (I've just double checked iPhone iPad and Mac) is to simply hold down the key and a small pop up appears with all of the available options for that letter then scroll across to the accent you want and touch it with the curser, or hold and slide your finger across on the mobile device and let go, hey presto, job done. Here is a selection ã ç ë ì ł ñ ô p
  10. We both had the Pfizer vaccine, no side effects except for the ubiquitous sore arm for 36 hours.
  11. Thanks Grandma Cruising, it's been a revelation. I start self administration on Monday🙈🙈
  12. Thanks Phil, sound advice as always. Never thought I'd see the day I'd be packing a fridge thermometer for a cruise!!
