Ahoy, Mateys! or, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE!

My husband and I have taken two cruises in our lifetimes, one up the Canadian east coast out of Baltimore during fall leaf brilliance and the other sporting around the Mediterranean, starting in Italy.

You may have recently become aware of the fire on board the Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas?

Yes, that was our ship. Well I’m guessing that no one will be having their hair done or be receiving a massage on deck 4 now, if I remember the ship’s plan correctly.

And the other cruise ship we’ve sailed on?

That’s right. The Costa Concordia!

We are two for two. Hmm. Anyone else have this problem?

Okay, okay. I should be fair here. I have sailed on the Margaret Todd out of Bar Harbor, Maine:

And I’ve sailed on The Mar, out of Halifax, Nova Scotia:

Both of these fine sailing vessels are still upright and not on fire. 🙂
