Default Maiden Voyage of Minnow of the Seas

At the pier ready to embark on cruise. Was a great day with three ports of call and private island was cancelled due to new alcohol rules. (see gallery) 8)

It used to be the fun place to go. But some developers bought the point across tha narrow channel and had enough pull to get alcohol and dogs banned so they could sell million dollar condos overlooking the island without having the locals partying in their view. So they made it so people don't want to go there anymore.

Sail your MOS down to Sarasota so we can "sail" on her and
qualify for another cruise... This will work, right?
Every weekend would be fine.

Trying hard for D+.

Sure, it would count. I am at 14 on RCI myself so I will sumbit yesterdays cruise to RCI to count as #15. You would already qualify for this as a Diamond Member!

Dave, you've got a great boat there!

The only thing you need now is a couple of 350 HP Mercs.....

(In case the alcohol monitors try to chase you!)

Water skiiers, tubes, all the time. In fact there was a show on Mythbusters about water skiing behind a cruise ship. They used the old Regal Empress and did it successfully. SO I am not the first to pull skiiers behind a cruise ship. 8)
