MIGHTY CRUISE SHIPS
Last one I recorded was a five masted beast...sails...yes sails...only 200+ passengers...they clearly were having a blast...THAT Captain was clearly an ancient mariner, and had the look...tanned, crows feet, all squinty for looking for the horizon, captained cruise ships and hated it and said so...intends to run his 5 masted ship till they bury him, and yes, as big as it is, it rolls.....btw, that reference to wives etc...one episode was the MSC DIVINA (sic) Capitano Umberto H Humbert 40+ years at sea etc, commanding.. smartly turned out every day, razor creases in his whites...VERY nice accommodations near the bridge, for him and his 25-30 year old wife and 3 year old son...who he carried during the obligatory "meet the officers" thing...spent most of the day smiling a lot....hope the rest of the Bridge Staff don't have similar distractions....oh well...it even got me smiling!!
