    A body like a Greek God... but a vast behind?

    Following 'AVastBehind's' NCL Cruise, this is the email we sent out over the weekend - we thought you'd like to see it in case you're not subscribed

    A Body Like a Greek God..............but a Vast Behind

    I did see the email and I thought it was rather rude to our esteemed fellow member, after all, a Greek God's Body would have to be thousands of years old I see in the picture that he's eating the Ambrosia and has got a glass of Nectar to wash it down.................even if it's the "Amber Nectar"

      Lovely review and excellent pics. But I still think the ship is quite ugly and definitely too big for us.

        As a solo cruiser, I think it is the last ship I want to cruise - the cabins are too small and who wants a lounge area for solos - not me. No amount of OBC on offer would tempt me on board.

        I have done Cirque,Ice Bar and Blue Man group - all on land.

        The itinerary is so BORING and , for me, the ship is NOT the destination.

        Each to their own

          I may well be the Greek God Dionysus, and my body may well be well preserved underneath my Matalan winter range clothes . I was indeed sampling the Amber Nectar, and it was very tasty. I always thought Ambrosia was with milk, and not fried egg??

            Dionysus is the god of wine - not lager but I suppose a Greek God can sup whatever he likes. I will bow to your superior knowledge of Ambrosia - as a mere mortal, my experience of Ambrosia is limited to custard and rice pudding.

              Hi Hampshire Thorn - I found this .......... DIONYSOS (or Dionysus) was the great Olympian god of wine, vegetation, pleasure and festivity. He was depicted as either an older bearded god or a pretty effeminate, long-haired youth. His attributes included the thyrsos (a pine-cone tipped staff), drinking cup, leopard and fruiting vine. He was usually accompanied by a troop of Satyrs and Mainades (female devotees or nymphs).
              Some of it i like, but the effeminate bit I may pass on. I have devotees who follow me in the form of my bank manager and the taxman.

                Ha ha, I like your humour AVB. I think the bank manager and taxman will be flogging a dead horse though, it's rumoured that Mount Olympus is taking in lodgers to fend off the financial crisis.
