Get Your Station Cards ready and dig out your Steaming Boots, White Chefs T Shirts and slippers for evening rig. Buy your ‘Ikkies’ from the Ships Office and fill in your Bedding Card when your lifejacket is issued. Leave…..leave your civvies in your locker!

Never mind the three cans a day rule on this War Canoe the ‘Tot’ is back in vogue and you can drink as much as you want with the ‘Drinks inclusive package’ of just £15 per person (Sadly you have to buy 3 days worth !!)

This includes; House Brands Wine, Draught Beer, Spirits which includes RUM! and other alcoholic drinks by the glass from all Bars (Excluding premium brands).

HMS Marco Polo is a 22,000 ton cruise(r) ship fully stabilised and air conditioned. All that is required is a £100 deposit per person to confirm your place on this unique cruise.

This Mini-Cruise is currently exclusively booked for RNA Shipmates and CONA Association Colleagues but this can only continue for a limited period and if the available places are not booked the cruise company have the option to open this cruise up for the general public to fill up the available places.

So Shipmates are requested to book up as early as they possibly can so that this does not occur and the cruise remains as a ‘naval deployment’.

The booking form is in last month’s Semaphore Circular. So why not come along and swing that lantern………..
