"Unlimited Drinks and WiFi" ???

Recommended Posts

An ad for a cruise splashes across the screen, "Unlimited Drinks and WiFi".


Ah, a cruise...  Tropical islands, far away places, a chance to escape the rat race and get away from it all.  And UNLIMITED DRINKS! 


But unlimited WiFi?  Who wants to waste their time on a cruise with their head buried in a phone?

Or there head buried in a toilet, aka carnival recently returning in the news Cruises may be OK but I prefer not to be imprisoned on a floating hotel with a bunch of drunks. It is also a perfect place for a perfect murder (where there is no police jurisdiction Oh MY I think my husband fell overboard!


In my 25 years I investigated 3 really questionable drownings the statement on 2 of them, He went to the stern of the boat to relieve himself, I heard a splash and turned but he was gone he never surfaced. It really is a perfect murder,


Back to the post no I do not want to be on a norovirus vessel, or worry about being pushed overboard, a lot of folks take that last dive on cruises.

WiFi?  A necessary evil needed for posting everything on Facebook.  What else is it good for at sea?

Oh, I know now.  For posting pictures of your dinner.  What would we do without being able to show everyone we eat food?

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
