Packing Tips and What To Pack The old saying, he's got long pockets and short arms, use to apply to people who could not find their wallets. It now applies to people who fly. Coats with hug pockets for heavy items! But, always remember, you can ship your bags separately from the airline. See here. And if you are picking...

Hop On, Hop Off ! Is it worth it ? There are some tips, like in the Azores, the trip is a short round one hour bus ride, no getting off, so do it last in the day, no queue and you get the bus to yourself. In general, if you are on a cruise you only have six or seven...

Benjamin Makisi "The Tenor of the Pacific" Ben was born in Wellington NZ where he began singing in church. He is of Tongan and Samoan descent and does look like a member of the 'All Blacks', but he is a man of gentle character although I am not sure you would want to cross him. He graduated with a Master of Performance (Opera)...
The Rules to Deck Quoits Quidditch and Deck Quoits have one thing in common. In Quidditch you ride a broomstick, in Deck Quoits you push with a broom. Of the many versions of the game Quoits, the one on board ship seems to have origins around 1930 but the original game dates back to the Ancient Greeks. Then is was more...

The Opera Boys

The Opera Boys - a powerhouse of top class vocal harmony I have never been to an opera. I probably won't be going in the near future, but this is a treat of an act I never miss. Whilst I might not be an opera fan I am a huge fan of The Opera Boys. West Ends Leading Men Now over 5...
Dean Richardson is an incredible Freddie Mercury, the best we have seen anywhere It is rather odd that we never saw Freddie Mercury live, because as young film makers we had a company called Fugitive (we made The Krays with Gary & Martin Kemp as well as endless 1980's pop videos). The overall boss of the company was Queen's manager...
Eric and little Ern are magnificent as Morecambe &  Wise There are links between most of the acts everywhere, a thread that binds like minds.
