Sounds about right actually! I think they'd be lucky to get a cargo ship and those that do usually charge a premium as they are much sought after 'cruises'.

Enviro, I know we are off topic, however. Back in 1979 I took a ferry from Piraeus to Rhodes, on to Limassol and then on to Haifa (Israel). It was running weekly. We bought Deck Passenger Tickets and, boy did they mean Deck Passenger. We weren't allowed indoors for the entire trip. I spent three days being taught how to juggle by a Chilean. Don't know the name of the line but it's worth investigating.

I'll be back! :cool:

Nice one Strum. I've always thought that if I made my millions that I could come back and buy that red-roofed house in Sandycove. Ah, dream on.
