His business must be a wreck though. Every week he was sprouting he was in a suite on a remote cruise site, flying in J or F, staying in a suite in some luxury resort. Now he's spruiking how wonderful SA is and how people should use him to book. Yeah. Nah.Delusional is one word that springs to mind

Funny I was thinking of Dennis when I posted the earlier comment. Maybe because he makes everything sound like a new discovery, a joy, rather than someone who is just trotting out all the things they've done or doing, because that's what they do.I much prefer Dennis Bunnik - much more down to earth
A cruise ship turned away from New Zealand is now stuck off the coast of New Caledonia, low on fuel with a significant storm approaching and no permission to dock.
Le Laperouse has an economic exemption to come to New Zealand for the cruise season but was last week refused entry after Immigration denied 61 of its 90 crew visas because they are not considered essential workers.
They know the electorate will support them 100% and that's all they care about.Government acting erratically again.
6 months out: "You have an exemption so can operate here."
1 month out: "You need visas, which you've already applied for, but we decided to deny for no reason at all."
Just seems like some change of mind in some government department, causing disruption and losses to the business and NZ citizens who'd booked.

The cruise line operated with their standard model, which is both well known and been in place for many years. It's not a matter of belief, as if NZ citizens were required, then that would have also been stated as a condition, and the cruise line would have had to prepare with the extra training required in advance. And given how the government were trying to blame the cruise line, they would have stated if it was an actual requirement that was not met.It could be that, or it could be that the cruise line led the govt to believe that there would be a lot more jobs going to NZ citizens if the economic exemption was given, and instead it's trying to import cheap third world labour.
