Default Custom-made Cruise

I enjoyed the zaniness of the "Story...". Here's a variation where you can add your own fantasies to a cruise story.

You've won a dream cruise contest and the president of a cruise line approaches you to tell him exactly what you'd like to see happen on this holiday..custom-made. Hold nothing back...

First you begin with embarkation. A limo driver picks you up at the airport. You never see your luggage but it has been verified that all have indeed arrived. Chilled champagne and chocolate strawberries await in the car, music of your choice is piped in. At the ship, you are whisked up the stairway, all paper work has been completed for you and your steward greets you to escort you to your stateroom. He opens the door and..........

After ordering a bottle or two of Dom Perignon, some chilled flutes and instructions for delivery, you change into the swimsuits from your carry-on, go out onto that huge balcony, and slowly sink into your private hot tub. Soon, the butler arrives, pops a chilled bottle, pours, and hands each of you your champagne. You soak for a short while, watching the other ships and small boat traffic in the port.

but you're holding out for Henry Spaford the third and have gone so far as to tell the M'aitre D that if he isn't seated at your table you may take all your meals in your cabin. You did that on a previous cruise and the M'D had to give back all the money.
