Norovirus is not a FO problem...............it is a problem caused by, and made worse by some of Fred's passengers! I cannot believe the number of passengers who try to avoid using the anti bacterial hand gel. Also the numbers of people who 'handle' items of food at the buffet......it beggars belief.

All the old ships I've been on have vibrations and rattles, but they also have bags of character. Thomsons Spirit and Celebration have a vibration 24 hours a day, even when in port, so much so that you imagine it's still there even when you are ashore. Fred's Black Watch and Boudicca both have vibration when the ship is sailing - I can't work out whether it is something to do with stabilisers, changing direction or slowing down but it comes and goes.
I love the intimacy and character of older, smaller ships but keep getting drawn to the larger modern ones too. They all have their particular charms.
