What do you mean I didn’t update Cruiseday Tuesday last week? I was away on a fact-finding mission on Tobago if you don’t mind.
Gratitude, that’s all I ask.
I only saw a TUI cruise ship when I was away…
In the dock at Scarborough where my fellow travel companion Anthony’s cousin just happened to be on board.
We ate in the Blue Crab restaurant in the town where myself and ‘Uncle Kenneth’ rustled up a chicken curry as you do as ‘Auntie Alison’ shared advice on the secret of her 50-year marriage.
One of the pearls of wisdom she shared is to make your underwear drawer the bottom drawer.
Auntie Alison is the ideal mine host which the couple who came in blindly off the ship on Kenneth and Alison’s day off will testify to.
As will Ainsley Harriott who popped by during his Caribbean Kitchen series earlier this year… https://www.facebook.com/OfficialAinsleyHarriott/videos/383131069165446/

Here is a reminder of what I’ve been saying about Tobago this week… https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/2019/12/05/robinson-crusoes-tobago/,
Talking of celebrities, Princess Cruises http://www.princess.com has released its cast of guest speakers for 2020/2021.
And the most eye-catching of them all might just be Linda Gray, who played the long-suffering wife of JR Ewing, none other than Sue Ellen.
They’ve also got Charlie Dimmock for all you keen gardeners, singer Duncan James and ski jumper ‘Eddie the Eagle’ Edwards.
And animals expert Michaela Strachan and TV therapists Nik and Eva Speakman, the latter on a 7-night Norwegian Fjords cruise departing August 15.
You all know what I think of the Norwegian fjords of course and yes, we really should try out all the cruise companies… https://jimmurtytraveltraveltravel.com/the-call-of-the-fjords/
So you want to get the skinny on Dallas?
Princess has a 14-night Baltic Heritage sailing on Crown Princess, departing May 30, with Linda on board.
The round trip from Southampton, calls at Kristiansand, Copenhagen, Tallinn, St Petersburg (overnight), Helsinki, Stockholm, Visby and Gdansk (Gdynia).

There will be more guest speakers announced soon and, of course, Princess has my details and you know how much I love my fans.
So a 45-minute talk with questions and answers, as well as a meet and greet session including photographs and books signings is something I’m only too happy to share with you Bandanafans.
