Lately, I’ve been totally turned off by the cruise industry: tales of people drinking to excess and falling overboard, problems with viruses and bad food. Who would want to be stuck on an overloaded pleasure boat with pool water sloshing back and forth, disco-dancing boozers, and lonely wayfarers longing for all-you-can-eat desserts?
Sorry, my imagination is getting away from me. You can always rent the movie rendition of Katherine Anne Porter’s “Ship of Fools.” But here’s a voyage that actually sounds fun, or at least forward-thinking: An “intuitive connections” cruise that features seminars and mingling opportunities with noted psychics.
At least if something bad is going to happen, you’ll get an inkling of it early, right? Or not?
