Ahoy!

The USS Sleuthetania expansion will be ready at 6pm MDT tomorrow (Saturday 6/14). The ship will stay docked in New York from that time until Sunday night, after which she will set sail on her maiden voyage.

Once aboard, you're committed to staying on the ship for three days of travel time (counting from the time she leaves port). So, make sure to pack an extra pair of socks!

Having a bit of a technical glitch I believe. I boarded the ship in Shanghai Sunday night and am already finding myself standing in New York City. The Music Teacher tells me the Chief Purser has a favor he would like me to do for him. Anyone else having this problem?

I was stuck with the pianist in Shanghai after the first voyage. I reported the glitch.

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It has happened again! I boarded in Shanghai barely 24 hours ago and just logged in today to find myself standing in New York again and I haven't even played yet today. That's another $20,000 I've lost. I just came from my friend's place, and she's still on board!
