Andrew and Dad in the engine control room where the ships watch keepers can keep a close eye on everything 24 hours a day.
Andrews' favourite tours are the Academy elementary kids. He says they ask lots of good questions. Above are Andrew and second engineer Anthon with the first-third graders. Andrew was chuffed to find our hallway adorned with thank you cards after the tour. Here are some priceless quotes from the cards.......
"My time in the engine room was hot but fun.........P.S I learned that even deck 3 is under water" Eli
" Dear Mr Rothwell My favourite part was the control room. Can I come back? Your friend Luke"
" My favourite part was everything.God bless you" Isabella
" My favourite part was the control room. I learned that you should not touch the buttons......" Alex
"I like Mr Rothwell" Unknown
