I didn't even get out of bed and although my wife was a bit concerned, I think she was reassured by own calm demeanour. Frankly, the Captain's last remark about 'Rest in Peace' was seen a bit of a laugh by most people.
The cruise itself was excellent. Ports of call 1st class, food superb, entertainment as good as the West End, staff brilliant, bar prices not unreasonable - what more could you want.
Perhaps the passengers who did nothing but moan (one even accosted the Captain when at his dinner table with his daughter who was on honeymoon to complain that she couldn't sleep because a lamp was rattling in her cabin. Another asked the Photography staff to bring the Captain from the bridge to complain about the quoted price of photos!!!) should take a look at themselves and remember when they put their towels on the sunbeds at the crack of dawn and left the beds unoccupied for hours on end; and also when so many entered the dining rooms without using the hand cleaning gel.
I would only express agreement with one thing - the ship does have a permanent list to starboard but is generally quite stable.
