We have now got a few days at sea. We will go through the suez canal the day after tomorrow and the Cunard people have already put together a plan for when we are in the gulf of Aden. Tomorrow we are having a piracy practice! What sort of a world are we living in? Apparently the pirates are from a country devestated by huge oil companies who have taken their oil and left them with detritus to cope with so I do have some sympathy.
I am sure a boat as huge as this can repel boarders but we will be prepared!
In the meanwhile we have been going to some very good lectures on suez and ancient Egypt So we are clues up!
