Voyage Reports

I have taken 11 cruises; Some short, some long; my last being in 1997. I wrote voyage reports on them shortly after each voyage for our local shipping newsletter, and the reports below are pretty much the way they were back when I wrote them. Unfortunately I was really just starting out with WordPress at the time of adding these from the old website, so some may look odd, but that was just me learning as I went along. I am slightly better at it now.  Some of these posts have now been migrated so will open in Musings instead of here.    28/02/2021. All reports are now migrated. 

Sadly Rudi Van Dijk crossed the bar in December 2018. Rudi and I did 5 cruises together and visited a number of ships. Unfortunately his collection of slides and images were lost when he died.
