Unlock the Past Cruise March 2011 - Day One (part 2)

Food can come from a number of places on the ship (for ‘free‘), including the buffet, restaurant, and some tables that mysteriously appear and disappear near the pool. I chose to have a meatball roll from these mysterious tables. The afternoon was spent by some watching a movie, sitting and drinking cocktails (alcohol is abundant…), going to discussion groups, or perhaps having a nanna nap. I was in that latter category. 4pm meant talks began once more and this time we went to an equally cold room, the Dome.

Unlock the Past Cruise March 2011 - Day One (Part One)

I am here sitting in the internet cafe on the Pacific Dawn, typing away as speedily as possible to not use up too much internet time (.75c per minute, for future reference).

As I have a copious amount of time on board, when I'm not lying down feeling sick or in talks (still feeling sick), I thought I could let those who may be interested know what's happening and what to expect from future cruises.

This morning's talks consisted of Shauna Hick's and Jeremy Palmer. I have never heard Jeremy speak so was interested in sitting in. First I will discuss Shauna's though.

2010 in review and 2011 in prospect

2011 is now upon us. We want to consolidate following a very busy and formative 2010 for Unlock the Past (UTP). In many ways we were pioneering with a number of new and innovative ventures. We have gained more experience, new skills, knowledge etc. to make 2011 better again.

Cruise update - limited places available!

For those who still wish to go on the History & Genealogy Cruise, you'd better make up your mind fast as places are VERY limited. There are only a few cabins left so make your interest known by clicking here.

Cruise poll results

Here are the results of our 6th Unlock the Past poll. 214 people voted. 35 said they had been on a cruise before and 28 sent comments.  With over 205 indications of strong interest (definite, probably and partner)  it would seem that a block booking for 300 could be filled. Inevitably some may not be able to come at the time selected, but perhaps some of the 67 “maybes” could be persuaded. And of course we have only given very limited notice to date.
