A Fear Of Getting Stuck On A Ship Without Fun Passengers
I’ve been partying in from Amsterdam to Australia, been to New Orleans Jazzfest, college football games, Jimmy Buffett concerts and in hundreds of lively bars, all in the search for a great time and super singles scenes.
But I’ve never been on a cruise.
The reason is simple. And you might even say silly.
It’s because I like to be mobile in my singles searches and feel confined on a ship I would not be in, well, cruise control.
At big events and party destinations, if there’s a girl or a group of girls I don’t for whatever reason (looks, attitude, spiked hair and leather outfits with body piercings, that kind of thing) like I simply go searching for some other location where there’s bound to be someone that fits my female criteria.
On a cruise ship, I’m always afraid that if there are more of the types of girls of the former rather than the latter, it would be a wasted trip. Or worse yet, I would get stuck on a cruise with a bunch of couples mixed in with tacky tourists whose idea of a wild time is hitting the next food buffet.
Or I would have the misfortune to book the same time at a high school reunion for people from the Class of 1950.
I’ve always known on a cruise ship, that I’ll be stuck with whatever passengers are on it and if I don’t like the choices of the other single people then I’ll be wishing I were someplace else where I could be more mobile.
I guess it’s kind of like being at an all-inclusive resort like Club Med.
Then there’s this other potential scenario: What if I disembark at a port ‘o call, find a rockin’ bar and a rockin’ girl, only to have to depart just as things are getting – how shall I put this – interesting!?
I could be completely wrong about this, of course. Some cruise ships now have 4,000+ people and you would think that with those kinds of numbers the odds are pretty good there would be as last a handful of girls that would get my attention.
But as I’ve chronicled here before, I can be pretty picky. Tho while out at sea, bottled up as it were on a cruise ship, I would certainly be willing to change those attitudes a bit as we change latitudes.
