  1. Martha Stewart had a U.S. broker's licence so she would have had to pass SEC exams, which would have dealt with insider trading. What's more, she was a director on the board of the New York Stock Exchange at the time she committed the offence. Yep, unsophisticated.
  2. Not much to address COVID though lots of questions from participants (shade under 1,200) about such. More about the future style of cruising, eco/environmental-responsibility, working with local communities, etc. Catch up here. https://event.webinarjam.com/replay/47/68mplh5vip8hg4hog4
  3. Interent is free and unlimited on Ponant since early last year so he should be able to post.
  4. I guess it's somewhat known but Le Soléal won't be the first Ponant ship used for a PG cruise. Ponant sold its first non-sail ship, Le Levant to PG which operated briefly as Tere Moana.
  5. Funny thing but I cruised on Le Soléal last year leaving Papeete for Japan. 1st day out of Papeete, the ship just sauntered over to Moorea, entered the lagoon at Opuhonu Bay, looped around the Paul Gauguin and went on to moor in Cook's Bay.
  6. The answer is installing belt manlifts. https://www.humphrey-manlift.com/belt-manlift/
  7. The cruise line operating my next cruise (two really) claimed to have gone with the exclusive use of low-sulphur marine diesel (no bunker oil) as of the beginning of this year, and not just low-sulphur (0.5% or less) as mandated starting next year but ultra low (0.1% or less). Just wondering if one will notice any difference, as in lower particulates, haze or soot? Hoping chengkp75 will weigh in.
