Ok all my Cruisemates, itís ten days till I go.
Iíve read all your tips, I know to bring lots of dough!
Iíve taken all your advice and this is what it got me.
Will I remember it all? I hope so Iím about to go to sea!
So hereís what Iíve learned from my buddies so far,
Be sure to check over lists before you get in the car.
I hear some of you speak of the great ďGlory BĒ,
Who will have the better cruise? Weíll just wait and see!
We leave from NY, where Iíll get to see the ďLadyĒ,
Hey! Terrorist! I am not afraidy!!
Iím on the Triumph, up the New England coast to Halifax,
Do I bring warm clothes? Iím confused on really what to pack.
Pack lots of shoes you say, 8 or 9 for me,
My hubby is only allowed 5 you see!
So off to my closest I go for more shoes,
Oh yeah, I just remembered I canít bring on booze.
I dollar a bag, Iím prepared for the Porter,
Good thing that you told me, I was going to give him a quarter.
Hang on to my dress as we are up on the deckÖ
Oh, Luanne, maybe Iíll let go, what the heck!
Hang on to my husband, as they tend to go missing,
I think the best way to do that, is while I am kissing.
I little birdie told me, donít worry youíll be fine.
Just be careful, donít drink too much wine!
Kuki has taught me be careful donít get fat,
But the rest of you say donít forget to try this and try that!
Donít expect a pool chair; there are too many hogs,
People like this should be fed to the dogs.
The dining room I will call, if I decide not to go,
I also know better not to save a seat for the show!
Iíll try my hardest to do you all proud,
Iíll even remember not to wear a thong in a crowd.
Iíll stay away from the whirlpool, and watch out for ďthose guysĒ,
Unless Iíd like to soak in pee, it wouldnít be wise.
So you think that some Newbieís, donít take your advice?
No not me, I even know to look for bed lice!
I wonít be returning to be one of those gripers,
But if I see a kid in the hot tub, he best not be in diapers!
I think I have it all covered, from all of my dearsÖ
Oh, oh yeah, Iíll be sure to look for Miss Spears!
Iíll be sure to have fun, well most of the time.
If not, then my Cruisemates may turn on a dime.
So off I go now. Thanks so much to all of you!
If not for your advice, I donít know what Iíd do!!
