Flame on!

Actually, it is a safety device. If you have to abondon ship and are stranded on an uninhabited island, you are supposed to dump out the contents, write a message, place it in the bottle and toss it into the sea. Just one taste will tell you that you are not supposed to drink the stuff.

Is there a reason that your knocking Carnival btw, Cunard is just over priced thats all, you can get all the same things on a nice RRCL ship like the Mariner of the Seas or the Carnival Miracle which is a really nice ship ask anyone that has ever been on her, stop knocking Carnival its doesn't matter rich or poor, anyone can go on either criusline that they choose...........

Where do I start?

I don't want a "fun" ship.

I do want a ship where people expect to dress for dinner.

I don't want a ship that looks like a block of flats.

I do want an ocean liner.

I don't want to be on a ship where idiots treat the lifeboat drill as a game.

I do want to go on a ship where adult converstation is the main entertainment.


And that's just for starters.

Sit in a lounge chair and drool all day (in between my naps)

Watch the walker races instead of the hairy chest contest.

I have Cruised with a lot of Cruise lines , including RCCL and Carnival !

Why to you come over to the Cunard board, to spy? You already know all Cunard people are overdressed, stuffy, old greybeards who are so darn snobby they wouldn't recognise a good hairy-leg contest if it can-canned right under their nose. What more is there for you to know?

Unless, of course, you secretly are intrigued with the mysterious libation that is Pol Acker....

Not poking fun at you nor Cunard but that seems to be the visual most people get when you mention a cruise. I have no love for any line I like them all. I would love to be able to travel on the QM2 for a trans Atlantic in the future when my kids are not part of the picture.

Well said (quiet, refined golf clap in the background)!

Concerned about your math skills though. I'm 51 and you're 39. This is "about the same age"? Interesting. Guess when I was 15, I probably thought I was "about the same age" as a 27 year old.

Slow down a wee bit. Or work on your typing and grammar skills a little. At least you will sound smarter then.
