9/16 Blog 2 - Cruising Toward Adventure
9/15/2003 9:44:20 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

In a few days, I'm going on my first cruise. To see some of the world, play tourist, act like an ambassador and not get myself into a situation I can't get out of.

In a few days, I'll be going on my first cruise. To see some of the world, play tourist, act like an ambassador and not get myself into a situation I can't get out of.

One is supposed to have fun on these things. The Western Caribbean is full of night life, ancient Mayan structures, great sea vistas, dramatic landscapes and real people.

Not Some Disneyfied construct, I've been used to since I was growing up.

Among the things I had to do to prepare, was buy new wardrobe, luggage, passport, (it will last me ten years until I have to renew) and even a new suit that's guaranteed for a lifetime.

As a member of a new forum Cruisecritic.com, I've made a few contacts, hopefully some will turn out to be friends. I'm excited as can be but wary of Hurricanes, bad liquor, dangerous women, pushy vendors in Foriegn ports who will do their darndest to sell me souvenirs, that may fall apart after their first use. Drugs is a major concern as well, (Ganja, or marijuana in Jamaica is particular ample). No! Is plain enough in any language.

The Adventures should prove exciting, and different. The Carnival Triumph is a huge ship loaded with shops, diners, eateries, the Tokyo Underground, a video arcade, a large floating casino, library, internet cafe, comfortable staterooms, good food but not great I understand, with a great atmosphere and first class entertainment.

It should be quite a week, of fun, friend making, touring, great scenery, snorkeling, and adventuring learning about things I've only seen in documentaries or just read from a book.

No matter, the outcome. I look forward to the experience. :)
