Sent my answer in, with only the slightest trepidation. Guinness me anyway please; I'm either celebrating or drowning my sorrows...

Onshore before the ship left port! Good thing too, as the ship might have nothing left in its galley after all of us partied with Isaac last week.

I'm not 100% sure of my answer. I have a quibble with the instructions in the pink box. Or maybe I'm wrong in the sense that Yma Sumac really is famous, Teri Garr really is well-known, and Margaret Cho really is funny.

Delighted to be on shore early this week. We really enjoyed the puzzle because it brought back many memories of our college years. Happy days!
