Default Wanna Buy A Cruise Ship?

So, you think you can do a better job at food, service and itineraries than a cruise line? Here's your chance to find out: Renaissance Cruises' ships, currently sitting in Gibraltar, are up for aution at this site.

Be sure to let us know what your opening bid is! I'll be your first passenger

Maybe we should all go together and pool our resources. We could call it the "CruiseMate."

OK, CruiseMates, the perfect opportunity has presented itself. We all go together and buy one of these ships, sort of like a condo on land. We set up a homeowners association (woops, shipowners association!) and plan our itineraries. We take all the top category cabins, based on our investment status, and we sell the unused cabins on each sailing for revenue to run the thing. What do you say? Who's in?

Can I have a job, too? Maybe hiring the bands? I always want more Salsa music on the ships! Or maybe I could help teach line dancing. (First I'd better get better at it myself, though.)

I put in a bid for $280,000,000 , but when they calculated the exchange of my Canadian currency to US dollars it seemed $18 US just wasn't enough.

What is with this "jobs" business? If we OWN the ship, we won't NEED jobs. That's why owners hire subservient souls. I think I'll just cruise.

Started this thread this morning before I left for work, and I thought I'd come back and check it out now that I'm home. Boy, did you all have a different idea than I did about this thing! The idea of WORKING never entered my head! ! I'm going to laze around the pool, drink frozen thingees, lock myself in the cabin with Jose for leisurely afternoons at sea, sit on my balcony, reading a book and watching the sea go by, dress up for dinner, go to the shows.... Well, you get the idea! I'm SO glad you've all volunteered to do all the work!
