Hey -- doesn't this sound like something you can incorporate in our cruise???

"The celebration of the completion of the year’s harvest is done with the instructions and guidance of the village Medicine man (Thempu). (KUKI?) On that day for the entire cruise, Kuki would chant incantations to the God for the rich harvest and to invoke the spirit for more CruiseMates Cruises in the coming years. The Let's Get Lei'd Group Cruise is essentially a wrap up of the year long toils of the cruisers. The celebration is marked by feasting, drinking of Madhu (rice-beer), the youths engaged themselves in various types of merrymaking, fetching of water and firewood, traditional sports like wrestling, tug of war, and other games like kite flying and different kinds of tamashas continue throughout day and night. The older people would sit by the fire-side singing traditional songs and the jolliers one will dance and crack jokes from time to time."

I could qualify maybe for an "Older Jollier"
