Default Crossword Puzzle Cruises

I've found two scheduled so far. Has anyone ever done this? Or plan to?

What a dream to indulge my two addictions at once!

Isn't it nice to find a theme cruise that fits so well with ones interests..I could go on a beaders cruise and be thrilled to learn new techniques.

What exactly is offered for you on the crossword cruise, since it is such a solitary interest?

Great question!

It's known as "Crossword University". Sessions are scheduled in which one learns how to: solve more quickly, compete in tournaments, and construct puzzles.

However, I think the biggest incentive is just to hang out with other people who enjoy the same hobby.

A beading theme cruise sounds wonderful too!

Default Parrot Lovers Cruise

So, help me there was one a few months back through part of the Panama Canal. I met a local lecturer, one of four, who said her discussion related to "foraging" and behavior, i,e. toys. BTW Fern I believe she is from Weymouth... Of course in several ports they had tours through sanctuaries and the jungle.. that would have been a blast.

Default Trivia


Me too as to trivia ... in fact, I usually play twice a day onbaord and with the right team - have done quite well as to winning and prizes. Have met on future cruises with people I teamed with in the past and had a ball getting together again and winning.

As to crosswords, do 3-4 a day but will leave that for my private time.

When HAIR opened in Boston many years ago it was banned...yes, it was..We were fortunate enough to see it a few day after it reopened...and the audience reaction was one of those things that you had to be there.. A few years later we took our sons to see the play...zilch... Do remember seeing GODSPELL, but it was sooo long ago.. Going to see musical about Lady Day today, the story about Billie Holiday.
