When I think of cruises, I usually end up with scenes from the movies “The Poseidon Adventure” or “Titanic” in my head. I imagine large, spacious ballrooms with giant, sparkling chandeliers and the guests waltzing around in their glamorous formal wear. Of course, the Poseidon and the Titanic both sank into the bottom of the ocean. So those stories definitely did not have happy endings.
Thankfully, those were just the exceptions to the rule. I am certain that most people go away on cruises because they enjoy it and not because they want to drown. Otherwise, the business would have gone bust a long time ago.
If I were to go on a cruise, I would like to go on one that will tour the Caribbean. I like going to exotic places and particularly enjoy going to the beach, so island hopping would be the ideal cruise for me. If I feel like partying during the cruise, I would set the mood by listening to Lady Gaga songs on my iPod playlist. I might even listen to songs like Tick Tock by Kesha, because they’re very upbeat. To unwind during the cruise, I might play some reggae songs like those by Bob Marley or maybe UB40.
For now, I can only dream. But someday, I will definitely make sure I get on a big boat with ballrooms and chandeliers.
