As noted in an earlier post, I love being on ships. Mind you, I wouldn’t call myself a sailor, navigator or yachtsman. The kind of ships I like are the kind where you call yourself a passenger and put on black tie for cocktails and dinner. I’ve taken a couple of ‘laps’ around the Caribbean, but was also fortunate to have done a “Crossing”…. trans-Atlantic, that is. Six days at sea to Southampton with time to spread out and get to know my shipmates and crew. Here are a few of them.
