The Cruise

I have just watched an old programme on 'Sky travel' which features 'Galaxy'.
It was made as a series approx 10 years ago and featured an up & coming British singer( Jane McDonald)
This time I was watching from another view point, an ex cruiser of Galaxy.
The programme is on most of this week, not sure yet whether they are showing the rest of the series, or whether it is a repeat of the same ( they tend to do that daily)
Not many places that I was familiar with, as they also showed the inside of the Kitchens( massive) the luggage lifts and a cabin boy's own cabin.
I did however recognise the pool bar.:joy:

Strangly though Galaxy was in the same livery as we were familiar with.

When i read your message and you said it was made 10 years ago, it made my heart jump. I was thinking in my brain that it was a typo but then I realized it's 2006! It has been 10 years since Galaxy's in service! Boy, time flies!

I can remember seeing that programme,but I can't remember how long ago it was shown here.
Two things come to mind.
Jane McDonald,they described her as the lady with a voice like a clutch,not sure if that was a compliment or otherwise,but she did go on to fill a concert in the Royal Albert Hall.
And the other was a passenger they interviewed who said the best thing about the cruise was getting off.I think he had some problem in the Casino with not being allowed to gamble as much as he had wanted to.
I will have to watch out and see if they repeat it again.

I managed to view a different programme in the series on Monday.
This time it featured the D.J who by the end of that particular cruise was relieved of his duties- apparently not in the Celebrity ethic. He danced along with the passengers. He was a real showman, he thought that as he had what was needed he could go on to be an evangalist .
Jane was called before the Cruise Director, to be told that her ratings were high, so Celebrity would be keeping her on.
Yesterday's show was a repeat of the same.
They are on Sky Travel daily at 5pm & 5.30am in UK( but I view it through NTL Cable)

At 6pm on Sky Three, There is a programme called "Cruise with Saelios" gives you a look at Easycruise 1. I am not planning on booking a trip, a bit too orange for me.

Oh, come on Lancashirelad! ORANGE is such a GREAT colour! :shock: Too much ORANGE????? JUST the colour you want to see - over your bed, on the carpet, towels, cups, glasses etc etc when a hangover is upon you!

Must admit, even though we haven't had any of these TV programmes down here, the Stelios idea doesn't appeal to me.....it will of course appeal to others, and he will, as usual, make a mountain of money! (but he will obviously miss out on your money and mine! ) ;)

Easycruise 2 is on order so he must be doing something right. From what I seen it's more like a ferry than a cruise ship.

Easycruise "Something" is cruising the Caribbean right now. VERY LITTLE PRESS, but supposedly, early on, had been well booked????

Talk about a recipe for bodies going overboard:roll: :shock:
