www.cruisecritic.com then click on “Boards,” upper left corner. You’ll get a whole load of cruise lines, but in the first bunch click on “Holland America Line.” I’m on page 9 by this time and dropping rapidly. The thread is “LIVE from the Maasdam (by tomc).” BTW: I’m the one who began the “Live From” concept. Thank you.
So many people, especially women of a certain age, have told me they won’t go on a cruise because (a) it’s too confining, (b) they are afraid of water, (c) they were in a friend’s rowboat at the shore and it got rough.
I tell them, “When you finally get dragged up the gangplank, kicking and screaming, then find out what a cruiseship is like, you will kick yourself for not doing it sooner.” They always reply, “That’s what everybody tells me.” To which I say, “Well? Do you think they might have a point?”
This brings to an end my comments on places I visited, times I had. For more details, I direct you to the blog; it’s fun reading. I’ve done three of these before at various intervals, then one this year and will let it settle for a while.
And each entry finished with, “This post came to you live from the Maasdam.”
