HAL has changed a LOT and they deserve credit for that - but back when the S-class (Statendam) ships were the NEW ones we had a joke that the age range wasn't 70+, it was 100-minus.

But that was in the 1990s - and my how time flies - doesn't it?

No one knows better than me how we all see ourselves as younger and thinner than we are in real life. I just hate it when I see a picture of me that shows and old man with a pot belly and a receding hairline. Who is that guy, anyway?

And I admire people who take pride in the "grand" anything title. If someone ever called me grandpa (I have no kids) I would probably shrivel up and hide my head like a turtle.
