A previously unseen story unearthed during Lockdown archiving.

In Dan’s own words – The Grand Princess was launched in Istanbul and I was lucky to get to go walk it’s decks before it set sail on its maiden voyage.  Squeaky clean boat, shiny (not particularly ) happy people and a whole lot of sun.  I think, because it was the first time out for the ship, what I got to see was a little unrepresentative of the norm as I’ve seen other cruises and they’re usually dense with humanity.  The cruise bods like to stack them high, feed them up and take their money.  Hell on the open seas if you ask me.
