Problems with Costa Webcams (FIXED!)

Costa Cruises appears to be changing their webcams, so it's difficult to get pictures from any of their ships at the moment.

We'll get more pictures from them once they've finished reorganizing their website.

Sorry - but I have no idea how long it will take.

UPDATE: Costa's webcams now are working again.

Slow webpages fixed

Most of my webpages have been loading slowly over the last few days because of a bug in one of the components I use.

I've finally tracked down what was causing the slowness, so it should all load a lot faster now.

Sorry for the delay!

Pacific Star - Final Voyage

She has finished her service with P & O and is now in Singapore getting rebadged for her new owners, Pulmantur in Spain.

This is a timelapse video of Pacific Star's final voyage to Singapore. It covers about nine days starting half-way up the Queensland Coast.

My dear wife says it reminders her of how fast our lives flash by.

Hope you enjoy it.

A Tribute to Ship Pilots

They jump between small boats and ships

Sometimes in the middle of the night

In the middle of the sea

Fair weather or foul

So that we can have fun on our cruise.

This is for those courageous souls who brave the rough conditions while we're enjoying ourselves.
