I don't know ...

The way the stock market has been behaving as of late ... we could have a whole larger wad to play with than we once thought. At least I hope so.

But yeah ... I could see that fleet of paratransit vans going up and down the dock ... dropping off people and their luggage (and walkers and wheelchairs and scooters) at the different ships for yet another sailing.

I guess I just prefer having a condo onboard. I'm a "nesting" sort of person and I prefer to have digs that I can call my own. A different ship every few weeks doesn't give me that.

Blue skies ...
