The hubby and I were talking vacations the other day. We’re thinking about taking a cruise and neither one of us has ever been on one. We both have concerns and did some research online. We’ve learned that there is an embarkation port a short distance from my parents’ house, which wouldn’t require us to fly somewhere first. So that is a plus.
We’ve also made some other discoveries. Join us in our disjointed conversation.
that girl: Someone said that the cruise ship is just like a floating hotel and not that exciting. And that it might be better just to fly somewhere.
the hubby: I’m worried about these fancy dining rooms.
that girl: What if it’s like Titanic?
the hubby: They are talking about wearing a dark jacket or renting a suit.
that girl: And what if I get seasick?… A suit? Who wants to pack a suit?… We would have to get an interior room but they seem pretty tiny.
the hubby: What the h*ll? Can’t I just eat dinner?
that girl: I’m not sure about this Bermuda thing.
the hubby: Because of the Triangle?
that girl: What if a whale flips the boat over?
OK, lovely readers, help us out. We know we are a little crazy (OK, maybe mostly me) and our concerns are ridiculous. (Or are they?!) Have you been on a cruise? Where did you go? What was it like? Any advice on what to avoid?
