Cruising? Watch Out For Pirates! (Yes, There Are Modern-Day Pirates That Attack Cruise Ships)

Joe and I don’t go cruising very much. The main reason for this is me – I just don’t like cruising. It’s not from a lack of trying, either…I’ve been on four Disney cruises and one Holland American cruise. I’ve been on 3 night, 4 night and 7 night cruises. I’ve been to the Western Caribbean, Mexico and Alaska, And although there are a few highlights here and there, and as much as I WANT to enjoy myself on cruises, I’ve always just been pretty “meh” about cruising.

So since cruises are kind of low on my travel radar, my eyes opened a little wider when a friend posted this on her Facebook while on a cruise:

This Is Probably One Of The Coolest Cruises You Will Have Ever Heard Of

Lots of people like cruising. Granted, I’m generally not one of them, but I know many people (including Joe) who are. Yet, for all of my not being thrilled with them, this cruise just intrigues me:

  • It’s 117 days/116 nights long
  • It goes all around the world
  • You stop at 43 destinations in 23 countries on 5 continents
  • 15 shore excursions are included

So yeah, I’m thinking this cruise might be better than stopping at Nassau and some woman asking me, “Hey Shorty, you want your hair braided?” (trust me, that is NOT the way to become my friend. It will get me to give you side eye, though. Just ask the woman in Nassau who tried that in 2001). Here’s more info…
