Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by Black (14 Oct 08 20:30)

You do not say which ship. They all differ in size and equipment some even have a whirlpool tub. They all have a butler ( more tips I’m afraid) so no need to make tea or coffee, just ring a special number you will be given and I think there is an iron and ironing board and lots of other nice bits like afternoon tea served evening canopies, fruit, flowers but best or all is (on most ships) the key to the Concierge Club for free canopies and drinkies in the evening and continental breakfast in the morning. Next time someone asks this question you’ll be able to answer with full authority. You can find out more by going to: Regards. …. Neil .

Tut, tut, Neil - what's all this about 'evening and free canopies'? Surely the sun will have gone down by late afternoon? I'd far sooner be partaking of evening and free canapes, preferably smoked salmon! Happy nibbling, regards Jan .

Sorry Jan I missed a comma and added an "i", I will try to do better in future. Yes, smoked salmon and caviar are included with the canapes.... it was a long day and well spotted I must be getting doddery I have noticed more that one or two faux pas by me recently. .... Neil.
