Thanks Karen, What an amazing part of the world and what a privilege to see it!  All the arrangements were effortless and all the connections, etc. worked out fine, so many thanks for that. Also for the recommendations, the Town Beach Café is a delight and one that we would have missed if you had not recommended it.  The cruise was excellently prepared and executed. We had two guest lecturers which was a real bonus.  Many thanks for your assistance in making this all happen for us!
