Thank you bjr :lol:

I've booked a cruise - never been on one before although my Dad cruises regularly :lol: Anyway, it's in August for myself, husband and 14 year old daughter :wink:

We embark at Southampton and visit France, Spain, Portugal and Guernsey. Can't wait :bounce:

Can I be the first to volunteer to be a stowaway? :lol: :lol: :lol:
To my critics
When I'm in a sober mood, I worry, work and think,
When I'm in a drunken mood, I gamble, play and drink,
But when my moods are over and my time has come to pass,
I hope I'm buried upside down, so the world may kiss my ar*e

I'll wave - no worries :lol:

Perhaps you can help me - do you know how far the Guggenheim Museum is from the dock in Bilbao - I mean, is it walkable, taxi or too far :P Please.

We don't do sea cruising (well, it involves boats and the sea :wink: ) but we love river cruising. We've been on the Rhine, the Nile, the Yangtze and the River Po in Italy. I bet you will have a brilliant time.

I cruise. It's a fantastic and very addictive way to travel. Three weeks ago I was on Vision of the Seas from Los Angeles and next weekend I'm on Oceana from Southampton. I've never cruised on Black Watch but have visited. Lovely little ship and the Fred Olsen staff are superb. A friend of mine loves cruising with them. We'll be doing a short on Boudicca together in June. I'm sure you won't be disappointed, Mr Shifter. Fred Olsen have a very loyal following. I've not been to Bilboa or La Rochelle but have visited Guernsey and La Coruna (in the rain). Very nice place and many shops are in walking distance from the port. If the sea is rough at Guernsey no one will be allowed to get off. That's what happened when I was there on the QE2.
