How in the good name of all things naval did Lieutenant Commander Ollie Hutchinson get the title of British Royal Navy Liaison Officer on the Queen Mary 2?
The good news is that us Sailors will now be sharing pier-space with cruise ships when we go Down Under. I am super relieved. I was secretly considering attending some sort of 12-step group for my various conga issues. . .
Tourism lobby groups say moves to open Sydney’s Garden Island naval base to big cruise ships will help boost one of the city’s fast-growing industries.
During a speech at the New South Wales Labor conference this morning, Prime Minister Julia Gillard promised to expand the number of guaranteed berths at Garden Island (naval base) for visiting cruise ships which cannot fit under the Harbour Bridge. . .
. . .The Tourism Transport Forum’s John Lee says a compromise has now been found for the expanding cruise industry.
“The Government has listened and therefore they are now going to amend those arrangements to allow those big ships … to actually access Garden Island for berthing purposes,” he said.
Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore says the announcement is great news for local businesses.
Holy hell, am I gonna conga the heck out of Garden Island Naval Base if I ever get Down Under! Put your right foot forward, Put your left foot out. . .
