    Fantasy Dinner Companions

    You have a table for 12 - you and your partner will soon be joined by the people you would most like to spend a cruise chatting to over good food and wine.

    Who would you have join you for stimulating conversation, interesting topics, a sprinkling of humour and fascinating story to tell?

    You can choose anyboady - living or dead.............go on - put your thinking caps on.

    My ideal table companions would be:

    Fred Dibnah
    Dame Helen Mirren
    Griff Rhys-Jones
    Joanna Lumley
    Isambard Kingdom Brunel
    Victoria Wood
    HRH Prince Philip
    Helen McArthur
    Charles Darwin
    and Winston Churchill

    Sure to be an entertaining evening with that mix

          I couldn't sit there and listen. A dinner conversation is just that. A conversation.

          Have too many personalities and who will listen to whom?

          Have a group of like minded folk who have diverse lives but share a love of cruising, travel and the odd glass [or three] of wine...Perfect.

            I vote for getting the short cruise sorted! Meanwhile, I will try & think of twelve people, other than some of the interesting people on this Forum!

                              All the ones I can think of would DOMINATE the conversation. Would be extremely interesting, but I do like to get a word in edgeways occasionally...

                              So, it would have to be my Daughter, son in law and the two grandaughters....Never had the chance to go with our Daughter and SIL.

                              But!.... What a fab. experience to dine with some SUPER forum members
