... for the entire cruise unless we chose to eat at one of the specialty restaurants. We are so lucky because we are seated with 2 ladies(both named Lorraine) (how goods that, only having to remember one name)! They are from Sydney as are Stuart and Roberta.

... There's no tipping. After the US, this has been a joy. It's so nice when people do their job, do it well, with pride, for a pre-agreed fee. - The cabbies are great. For some reason taxis are an old man's game here - the youngest driver we had must have been in his late 50's, many were much older. Very sedate. Charming. - Trains were discussed previously.
