I don't like how they just jettison all their garbage.
I can imagine. I'm not a cruise person, my wallet doesn't allow for it and my sense of adventure doesn't allow for it either.
I'm going to India for two weeks in a month, and I'll turn up, get a cheap room (like $5 a night) and then figure things out from there. I have two train tickets because you have to buy them in advance.....
Some of the people who joined our cruise did exactly that. You should call a travel agent about it.
You ARE adventurous. I would definitely want to have things all in order before going to a foreign country. Unless,of course, I'd been there before and was familiar with it.
For me that lacks all the excitement. Adventure is what makes you feel alive.
My longest trip was going to be a year, then it was going to be six months and ended up as three. I went to southern Africa. The problem there is the stress from fear. Getting to a new place and having to be there before dark, or taking overly priced taxis, and not knowing if you're going to be robbed or not. I became apathetic also, you travel and see stuff, but then after a while you want to do something different.
Three unorthodox cruises for me.
One was in the Red Sea, Israel. We went snorkelling on that trip. A fabulous coral reef.
A North Sea overnight crossing from The Netherlands to UK. I was expecting a tramp steamer, but it turned out to be like a cruise liner.
And thirdly, a delightful cruise down the River Thames to Windsor.
I've never been on one of those huge cruise ships. Saw AIDA moored in Las Palmas. I'm sure I'd get lost on one.
It's not always bad ...
