I have never felt the desire to go on a cruise.
Not in 56 years have I ever wished to bounce around on the sea, trapped with thousands of other people.
However, my new wife feels very differently. She is very outgoing and she booked us a 12 day cruise for our honeymoon. I didn’t want to disappoint her so I went along. I was miserable the whole time. I took my seasickness medicine but it didn’t help much. My wife was eating at the buffet constantly but I could barely touch food without feeling sick. And then the air conditioner on the ship started to malfunction. It was not just in our room either. Half of the ship was having an air conditioning issue. I guess they have two air conditioning systems. One in the front and one in the back. The air conditioning system in the front is the one that was only working intermittently. That is where our room was located. This is also where the main dining room was located. I have to say that the lack of air conditioning did nothing to improve my sea sickness. Needless to say, I was very happy when we finally got back to our home port and we were able to go home. It was a memorable honeymoon, I have to say that. But it was memorable for the wrong reasons. Oh well, at least we can start our lives from here on out. Our house has good air conditioning and doesn’t bounce all over the place. But, my wife had fun and that’s all that counts.
