Sinking

Thinking of planning a cruise.  Never been on one.  I've read the forum and FAQs... I know safety is paramount to cruise lines.  My last concern before committing is... What about a submarine attack?    I book a balcony so I can jump free.  Is this possible sailing the Caribbean?

We almost always book a balcony and we usually sail in the Caribbean.  I don't think you'll have to concern yourself with submarine attacks (if you are being serious and not sarcastic).  Our favorite reason to cruise is that you see several place and unpack once, none of this check-in, check out, bag drag, check -in, check-out, etc.  If we think a port is "sketchy" we just stay on the ship.

 

My advice, book your first cruise and go find out if it something for you or not.

 

Todd, I'm guessing you are having a bit of fun. Right?

In order to satisfy your concerns, You can wear your life vest 24/7 and carry an inflatable  pool toy, but I'm going to guess that you are kidding. 

I think it will kind of hurt if you jump from a Balcony but to each his own.

 

By the way, when did the Pirates of the Caribbean secure submarines?Wink

I don't know...some of them made it off of the Titanic.  Jumping...or holding on to that balcony railing might give you an extra advantage after all. Happy

Listen, I saw a movie, I think it was a documentary about a pirate in a sub that made his XO walk the plank and he beat the whole US Navy and sank a ship in Norfork or something. So any thing is possible.

 

 

Oh! The name of that documentary is Down Periscope.

I prefer the one called Up Periscope with Tony Curtis and Cary Grant and the nurses with the big.....Well you have to watch it.

I would suggest you book one of the "torpedo proof suites" .   They are a cruise line secrete that you have to ask for.  These suites will self seal,  break off from the ship and float away to safety.  The suites come with water wings for you to wear 24/7 in case the ship is hit while your not in your cabin.

I wouldn't worry about the submarine attack as much as the giant sharks that attack submarines and helicopters. (They are also known to inhabit tornados and waterspouts).

Don't know where you are sailing from, but don't forget to worry about the Bermuda Triangle, either.  Make sure you post a review on your return so we we know that your survived sharks, pirates, submarine attacks. I hope that you know how to swim.   Have a safe cruise!
