It’s not the Love Boat: NaBloPoMo

Where is the one place you would never want to go on vacation that other people seem to love?

People seem to like cruises in spite of all of the cruise mishaps in the last several years. I still don’t really want to go on a cruise. When I was a kid, I watched “The Love Boat” religiously. I even watched it when I was grounded from the television – that is how much I loved “The Love Boat.”
Any cruise that I would take might not meet my expectations of what a cruise should be. I’m already disappointed that Isaac won’t be my bartender. If I call the bartenders Isaac, they’ll think I’m a jerk. How many times do they have to tell me “Ma’am, my name is Chris.” My reply will probably be “Whatever, Isaac.” This might be when they cut me off from alcohol or throw me overboard. (I wonder if Isaac aka Ted Lange goes on cruises. If so, does he get stuck taking pictures at the bar?)

Mazatlán was a popular destination on the show. Has anyone been there? I’m not sure if I want to go. What about Cancun or the Bahamas? I would love to visit the Caribbean Islands and Mexico but Cancun doesn’t appeal to me either.

Once I went to pick up my pictures at Wal-Mart. I was expecting pictures of my kids with Santa. What I received were pictures of Kid Rock and Uncle Kracker on a celebrity cruise. Are celebrity cruises the cheesiest of the cheesy celebrity gatherings? I like comic book conventions so the chances are good that I will like a cruise filled with celebrities. Will I really care if they are b-list or whatever? Probably not.

So if anyone wants to send me on a cruise so I can decide if I like cruises, please contact me.

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.


  1. I went on a cruise to Jamaica, cancun, and the Caymen islands and I loved it. I would totally go back. The destinations weren’t the high point…for me it was the food. We banned taking the elevators the whole trip because otherwise I’m sure we would have gained 15lbs. Everything is just so delicious. It is well worth the money. If you get the opportunity, go…and take me!!

  2. I did go on a cruise where one of the ports was Mazatlan. I thought it was pretty but we were just there for a day. What is fun about cruises is all the entertainment. Every night there is a performance after dinner. I felt it was crowded on the boat, though, with so many people. I think I would like a cruise with the option of dining just with my husband. The cruise we were on we dined at a table with a group. Another shortcoming is that you don’t spend enough time in each port.

  3. I really don’t see the attraction. Cruises are not for me. If I want to explore anywhere by boat, it will be by canoe or kayak and I’ll be rowing it myself.

    I’ll take a flight or road trip over a luxury ship any day.
