I think that's a bit unfair! Isn’t using a name like Cruise dot Fanatic secretive? Are you someone who regularly contributes but when it comes to making a point, you hide behind a ‘secondary’ name when the going gets tough? There was nothing secretive about my question to Neil, as anyone who is a regular reader to this site would know the references to A & a, as they were probably the biggest contributor to this site up until a couple of months ago.

A of N is alive and well and communicating on the other side. Have spoken to him and although he keeps up with this side prefers to write there. You could try Albert Ross. regards. D & J.

It's a very dark place controlled by Colin Fry who only allows four or five people in at a time. Admission is only for those who cruised the Mary Celeste all those years ago & pre paid their gratuities. I've said too much....Aaarrghh!!!

My littl...

Wow wow wow what an amazing experience. Thank you so much Cruise.Co.UK for allowing me to visit this most magical and diverse City. I can only describe it as a sophisticated fusion of the East and West. Where old meets new on every street.Arriving into the new sleek airport with so much space and glass, the feel of the outside is everywhere. This is a new airport built on Lantau Island approx 40 minutes from the city depending on traffic, (never seen so much) with fantastic road and rail link...

When I think of ‘Black Friday’, I conjure up images of a chilly winters day in New York and seeing people dressed up warm, shopping in Macy’sWell, we now do Halloween on a grander scale than ever before, so why not it makes money! Yet we talk about sovereignty a lot in this country these days and surely, we should be pushing our own traditions? Could we have a sale every ...
