A quick visit in Istanbul

A travel blog entry by cjbishop


... tiny by comparison. 700 passengers versus 2000+. Our suite(they don't call them cabins) are the largest we have had on a ship. Bath has tub and separate shower, a big walk-in closet, a couch and 2 barrel chairs and very nice deck chairs on the balcony. Everything else is scaled down.

Labouring in Istanbul - it's a riot!!

A travel blog entry by chris-roisin


... settled on Panama. The quiz consists of 10 questions, 10 points for each correct answer. The quiz is played on each sea day and the points are carried forward. We have got off to a steady start scoring 7/10 and laying a credible 2nd. I did the usual thing of talking myself out of an answer.
