AND FINALLY: It is a monthly cruising update

Amongst the ‘going away presents’ at the recent P&O Britannia unveiling at Fish Island opposite Stratford’s Olympic Stadium was a strange blue container.

Most of the guests found the gift perplexing including Carnival’s UK Chairman David Dingle.

 A sleuth in the BTN office suggested that in fact it was a wine bottle container, which proved correct. However the only problem was that line’s beverage department had also supplied for departure a bottle of exclusive P&O Colture by Prosecco in its distinctive large bottle. The wine did not fit the bag!

David is a keen Portsmouth FC, the former FA Cup winners now lingering in League 2, or the Fourth Division according to traditionalists.

“At least the bottle bag is in Pompey colours – two examples of being not quite fit for purpose!” was all he could add.
