This is the first poem I ever wrote about cruising, and I posted it on the old Cruise 2 Com board about five yeatrs ago. I have added a few lines to it.
We are eating our way from the dock through the bay
Cruising out on the fabulous sea.
We're a giant afloat, a magnificent boat
As we top off our dining with brie.
We are living like kings, and we drink frozen things
As we lounge on the deck in the sun.
We put oil on our backs, then they offer us snacks.
We never had so much pure fun.
We've drunk at the bars and danced under the stars
To the music of joy and romance.
We've seen the fine shows, and it's time now, Lord knows
To give the late buffet a chance.
When we stopped at the ports, we all donned our shorts
And watched all the natives at play,
And we ate all the dishes made from tropical fishes,
And many of us wished we could stay.
We've lunched on the sea, had the afternoon tea
With cookies and ice cream as well.
Then at dinner partake of both lobster and steak.
Those last three desserts all are swell!
Then, at last, to home port. Oh the cruise was too short
And how all the time just flew by
And it just isn't right that our clothes fit too tight,
And we just cannot understand why!
