OK - I appreciate your info and situation. I am now looking at the Tall ships, Sea Cloud and Sea Could II for cruising Costa Rica/Central America/Panama.
Here is the website: www.seacloud.com -*Cruising regions
The reason I have changed gears is: I really hate the thought of flying one way across the Atlantic - it's such a long flight. I cannot sit that long - my ankles swell up. I would need to lay down or prop up my legs and I cannot afford 1st class flying. Since you fly across the Atlantic, can you give any info to help me deal with this? How long is the flight? If you want, you can reply to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
