I'll post the clues later today. They are largely cruise-related, largely Regent-related, and largely KLT-related. I'll give you a hint for 1 across:


SPLENDOR


Unlike some crosswords, I'm not going to tell you if there is more than one word. I'm not going to tell you if there's an abbreviation. And I'm not going to tell you if it's a foreign word. We're going to do this one just like Tina Turner would do it, nice and hard.

You can work on your own, or you can work it together, as you wish. But if you post the answer to any single clue here, I will update the graphic with those correct answers occasionally.

Good morning, and good luck!

I made three edits. All were inconsequential, I think.

The first was that I had #67 under "across," but it should have been under "down."

The second is in the Jim Morrison clue. I used the word "rising," but it should have been "risin." The phrase used in the song was an anagram from "Mr Jim Morrison," and there is no "g" in there.

And finally, I forgot to put my signature in the bottom row, there - I do this on all my crosswords!

So here's the updated puzzle graphic for Tuesday morning

I'm going to flip all the cards over:

#46, across and down, went unanswered!

I guess Davefr wasn't floored by my clue for #10 down.

seadog got all the Canadian answers right, and Ngaire did Dallas. (Help, I have no filter.)

Maybe I can slow you all down next week with something new and different and 100% written in Indonesian.
