Default Triumph Over Calamity

While searching for books on my kindle today I found a short story for free about the Triumph cruise called Triumph Over Calamity. Pretty good read about a family on the cruise. Gives a pretty positive look to their adventure. Its free for kindle. I don't know if there are other ways to get the story.

Thanks. I'll start reading it at lunch.

"Calamity" sounds like the right choice of words. "Disaster" seems to be the choice of the media. No deaths/injuries, ship is salvageable....... Wonder what word they'll have to use if a genuine disaster happens again?

Decent read. A little broken up, not really......a story...more of a journal. But I like her attitude and it def. doesn't match a lot of what the media was told. But I won't say anymore......you guys can read it.
