We use Google Analytics tracking cookies to collect anonymous traffic data about your use of this website.
Google Analytics collects information such as pages you visit on this site, the browser and operating system you use and time spent viewing pages.
The purpose of this information is to help us improve the site for future visitors.
The following cookies are set by Google Analytics:
A persistent cookie – remains on a computer, unless it expires or the cookie cache is cleared. It tracks visitors. Metrics associated with the Google __utma cookie include: first visit (unique visit), last visit (returning visit). This also includes Days and Visits to purchase calculations which afford ecommerce websites with data intelligence around purchasing sales funnels.
__utmb Cookie & __utmc Cookies
These cookies work in tandem to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.
Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie, and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given__utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.
This is a standard ‘grace period’ in web analytics. Ominture and WebTrends among many others follow the same procedure.
Cookie __utmz monitors the HTTP Referrer and notes where a visitor arrived from, with the referrer siloed into type (Search engine (organic or cpc), direct, social and unaccounted). From the HTTP Referrer the __utmz Cookie also registers, what keyword generated the visit plus geolocation data.
This cookie lasts six months. In tracking terms this Cookie is perhaps the most important as it will tell you about your traffic and help with conversion information such as what source / medium / keyword to attribute for a Goal Conversion.
Google __utmv Cookie lasts “forever”. It is a persistant cookie. It is used for segmentation, data experimentation and the __utmv works hand in hand with the __utmz cookie to improve cookie targeting capabilities.

Happy SEA Sunday. The Seafarers on board the ship OOCL BELGIUM were so happy to welcome on board the ship our AoS Episcopal promoter Bishop Dowd on board to celebrate Sea Sunday mass. I thank the Bishop to have had the humility to accept the invitation and to have climbed up the ship to celebrate with the Seafarers the joy of Sea Sunday. Sea Sunday gave the Bishop an opportunity to have a taste of ships visit and to feel the pulse of Seafarers needs. The Bishop also mentioned that this is my first but will not be the last. ...

In Montreal during the month of July after the fireworks of Canada Day every Wenesday and Sunday the fireworks continues as a competition between countries. So on fireworks day's we don't provide transport back to ship and the Seafarers are reluctant to come out on those days. On last Wednesday I took Midi Wi Fi hotspot unit on board the ship and the Seafarers very happily enjoyed free Wi Fi for one and a half hour. Seven of them used little more than 7GB. But the happiness they had in their face is more worth than the money spent. They were so thankful to my time spent with them. ... See MoreSee Less
