RCI Should sail to Liberia

We need new and exciting ports. And what better place to sail than to RCI’s world headquarters in Liberia. It’s probably just a P.O. Box, but still...

Hate to tell you this but,  the world headquarters is in Miami Florida. Liberia is only when RCL was incorporated.

The only presence of Royal Caribbean in Monrovia, Liberia, is a name on a plate at a law office, where the local legal representative is housed.  The same lawyer will commonly represent a multitude of "non-resident" corporations.

No sailing there and they are located in Miami.

How about Malta instead...now that is a nice destination.... and where Celebrity ships are registered...

And, there's no pirates there, either.

Real life exciting adventures await you in Somalia...

 

Pirate ship adventure excursion - walk the plank off the cruise ship to get onto your excursion vessel, join a real life pirate crew to scour as much booty as you can carry from neighboring ships, then scale a rope ladder to rejoin your ship in time for dinner.

I have been to Liberia a few times.

 

I would not want to sail there.  😄

Any suggestions for not to miss sight seeing?

Husband and I were rather adventurous in our youth and would often say on arrival:  (a) Another fine hell hole  (b) another fire trap (the hotel) and (c) Another fine mess you've gotten me into (lifted from Oliver & Hardy).

Okay, as long as there is a drink package.

I’m trying to convince Royal Caribbean to do a pass through the South China Sea blasting the theme song from Team America Movie.

Malta is nice and Royal does go there on occasion, went there on Brilliance years ago. I think it was substituted for Tunisia during a time of unrest

The airport as you lift off to leave. 😄

Yes, but it can be difficult to get good photos at the airport what with only the one bare light bulb hanging from the ceiling and the rather humorless guys with the machine guns.

First time I went there, you were lucky to have that one light bulb.  The country had NO electrical infrastructure after the 14 years of civil war.   So you had a generator or candles, or it was very dark.

There would be one excursion, a visit to the Lawyer's office.  I can see a single file line filing off a bus, through the office, then through a make-shift souvenir shop, then back on the bus.

For S China Sea cruise, Ride of the Valkyries would be most appropriate.
