I hate sauerkraut. Coincidence; You guys talking about broccoli. I'm having broccoli and cauliflower mixed for dinner tonight.

People who love to go on cruises make no sense to me.

I think even if I won tickets for a free all expense paid cruise, I wouldn't go. I'd try to sell the tickets. If I couldn't sell them, I'd give them away to a stranger.

You'd miss seeing one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

I've seen whale and dolphin pods. Those are memorable sights. What do you have against the ocean?

I haven't been in the middle of the ocean for quite a while. People I know who go on cruises say you can still all the stars, the clouds are whiter, the water is clear blue, you can see as deep as 10 feet into it, the air smells different. In essence, it's cleaner.

I've never understood the appeal of a cruise, especially the ones that are weeks or months long. Maybe if I was trying to escape Sicily in the 19ots and Ellis Island was waiting for me on the other end. My parents and grandparents prepared their lives in such a way that I wouldn't have to ever be on a boat overnight.

Unless you have a love of the sea I understand why a cruise isn't on your to do list. I loved the sea. It was so serene and relaxing.

In today's climate, I wouldn't go on a cruise. I have a friend in the tour booking business. She would give me a very good rate. I won't go. I did my time at sea in the navy, loved it.

When the sea calm it's relaxing. When it's angry it's beautiful and exciting. I was fortunate to be on the bridge so I got the full effect of a storm.

As I prefaced IMO you have to have a love of the sea to appreciate its beauty.

I checked out the USS Midway in San Diego. My biggest takeaway was: screw being below deck. So claustrophobic. Seems like the bridge would be better. I'd want to be on the deck really. Below deck there was a big hanger, which was okay too. But the cafeteria, the bedrooms, the laundry room, the radio or radar room (forgot which one), etc. Spending hours, days, weeks, months down there. I'd go nuts.
Small rooms connected by small hallways, with small doorways, no natural light. No thanks.

I don't know if it was due to the trip as a toddler on a rickety rrefugee boat to Malaysia from Vietnam but I've always had an irrational fear of being on a boat or being out in the deep sea. Even standing at the end of a pier and staring out at the ocean at night makes my sphincter clench.

The idea of a traditional cruise ship is abhorrent. But one of the great pleasures in life is overnighting on a boat.

I can see that being true for people who don't suffer from extreme motion sickness like I do.
