Default Fear to get on the Cruise

Hi there,
I am afraid to get on the Cruise, but I am interested in cruising. And above all that I wish I could go and see the George C. Boldt 's luxury castle on Heart Island https://www.blountsmallshipadventure...-heart-island/, the history behind the construction of the castle reminds me of my dad's and mom's love. There is something similar. I wish I could take them there. The only means we can travel there is through the Ship, but my fear is something troubles here. How could I get over my fear? Does anyone here have such phobias? Any tips to get over the phobia? Suggest some ideas, Please.

you could drive to Gananoque Ontario & take a small sight seeing boat to Bolt castle
It is a short trip there & back
You would not be on the Blount boat in open waters for which they were not designed for

I would not go on Blount if you are afraid those ships ride like a cork

I would have to agree with lulu....if it was a large cruise ship, your phobia may be easier to deal with, but on this type of vessel, it would be harder.

In many cases incremental steps can build comfort. A short trip on a small boat, followed by a day trip, ...

It also depends on the root of your fears. You may want to work with a therapist

I would suggest a Psychologist to help you get rid of phobias.
