Wayback Wednesday: Love, Exciting and New...

The upper deck of the cruise ship...
Lounge chairs on parade...
The title of this post? That was the promise made every week in the 70s as Jack Jones crooned the theme from The Love Boat.

The reality of cruise ships -- like this small one that pulled into Victoria several years ago -- is a lot less romantic. A cruise ship is like staying at a fancy resort… one where you can only leave the resort for a few hours every few days. Once you subtract the gambling and the night shows there really isn’t a lot else to do except eat and lounge around the decks staring at an expanse of water that never or rarely changes.
