    Looks like Swan Hellenic is a no go for me then

    Lord Sterling expresses concern that his cruise passengers might have to mix with "smelly", "shirtless" lorry drivers...

    Lord Sterling told reporters: "We want to create a certain atmosphere, a five-star setting, as soon as people arrive to travel. I am concerned our customers, who are expecting that, will instead be asked to mix with lorry drivers, who in the summer suffer from BO, wear shorts and no shirt and in some cases won't have shaved for days.

    Ok - I know he was talking about the Portsmouth Terminal but I did think for a moment that he meant the passengers.
    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

      Probably not.... The quote was from the Daily Telegraph.
