Here is an updated roll call for Friday and Saturday.  Looking forward to meeting everyone at the Crown Plaza at 7.30 on Friday.  ;D

* Rob Lightbody (Friday & Saturday) - Waverley Booked
* Lynda Bradford (Friday & Saturday)
* Tom Bradford (Friday & Saturday)
* Tom Kirrage (Friday & Saturday)
* Peter Kirrage (Friday & Saturday)
* Alan Connor (Friday & Maybe Saturday)
* Shona Connor (Friday & Maybe Saturday)
* John Little (Friday & Seeing us off on Saturday)
* Rosemary Little (Friday & Seeing us off on Saturday)
* Helen Strachan - (Saturday, boarding in Greenock)
* Robert Mcluckie - (Saturday, boarding in Greenock)
* Dave - to confirm
* Catherine + husband (Friday and Saturday)
*Rosie and Simon (Friday and Saturday)

Sorry to hear Rob that there has been trouble onboard the Waverley on the previous two Saturdays and I am sure that this was caused by a minority.   As you say sun and alcohol does not go well together.  Forum members who have sailed on the Waverley before will know that the majority of passengers are onboard the Waverley because they want to preserve the experience for future generations and know how to behave themseles.    I am sure that the Waverley management will have taken action to ensure no further problems. 

Isabelle we are sorry that you will not be meeting up with us but hope that you can manage along to a future get together.

Hi all,

I've just booked a table at the Crowne Plaza for 7.30 on Friday evening. It's under my name - Lightbody- but we'll also do something to make it clear we're the QE2 people!

If you'd like my mobile number, please send me a personal message or email.

See you then!

There's a truly lovely photo of Waverley at Rothesay (where we'll be tomorrow) taken just a couple of days ago on Flickr.

Waverley has just returned back to outside the Crowne Plaza hotel from Friday's cruise. She's off again this evening for a party cruise, then will be back tonight ready for us in the morning.

We had a really enjoyable night together last night and the Waverley is now waiting!
