as I mentioned many months ago I'll be on vacation next week on a huge boat where much eating, drinking and spending of multiple paychecks on said drinking will be had. Also the ship will be stopping at San Juan, St. Thomas and Tortola (Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands) where we can do various touristy things like uh, go shopping and ride bikes and stuff. Of course they charge you for that crap, but I signed up for helmet diving at St. Thomas and some kind of Jeep safari at Tortola. Helmet diving was like $90 and the safari was $70 or $80 I think, so yeah hopefully it will be worth it. I'm looking into seeing if there's a way to make my camera waterproof (read: I asked some nerds on the internet), but otherwise I'll just buy one of those lame disposable waterproof cameras I guess.
Aside from that the booze cruise will last from this Saturday (we depart at 4pm but we have to be on the ship before noon) until Sunday the following week (15th - 23rd) when we arrive back at NYC at 9am or some other godawful hour when I am sure to be hungover. It's a two day trip there and back again, so really we're only going to be at each location for a day or so.
And before any of you ask, no, it's not a gay cruise. It's a family cruise, which may or may not be worse.
