On that cruise I believe the swell was crashing over the pontoon at Norfolk Island, so I would think that would be a damn good excuse for them not to land. Even the customs boys couldn't get out to...

I don't think the ship ever leaves on time from Norfolk. The twice we have landed there we haven't even rushed back to the wharf. We have rellies there so they take us back, usually at dark and there...

On the Sun last year I bought a large photograph of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffanies. It is the first time I have bought anything at one of those auctions. Now, I know it isn't worth the $200...

I have just come off the Pearl and heard people complaining they didn't get free biscuits with their room service which they complained about having to pay for. The quote was something like, " When...
