Hi there, Max and Mike here. We're from Edinburgh - tho our accents are English - so please don't get all excited if you are fans of 'Brigadoon' or 'Braveheart'.
Mike is a senior manager with British Telecom, and I am a studying for a PhD in the chemistry of glass at Edinburgh College of Art. Mike is a seasoned cruiser with The Queen Mary 2... and I used to be when I was small and lived in the Far East when we would travel back and forth from Malaya to the UK. The one ship I remember most was the Galileo Galilei - any takers??. It was renamed the Sun Vista when it eventually was sold to Singapore Sun Cruises. She was swallowed up by the sea off the coast of Malaya in 1999 after a on-board fire - heatbreaking! All passengers and crew were safely evacuated. She was a fine cruise ship that recalled the days of efficient luxury and speed when cruising around the world was the normal thing to do to get from A to B.
Looking forward to meeting you guys on the Emerald Princess in Oct/Nov.
