Have you ever gone on one of those caribbean cruises? I’ve always wanted to, but I’ve been hesitant.
Well the idea of being out on the water for that long bothers me for some reason. I can swim. I’m not afraid of water at all. In fact I often say that I was born in a canoe (not literally!). I’ve been a canoist all my life, but it’s mostly been on creeks, rivers and lakes. I’ve also white water canoed and rafted.
So yeah, I’m not afraid of water. I think I’m just afraid of open water. The ocean.
I know it’s irrational. Cruise ships travel at night and dock in different ports during the day letting passengers out to visit whatever island their docked in for the day. So it’s not like I’d be out in the middle of nowhere on the water for a week or two.
One day I will go on a Caribbean cruise. I did promise my sister when she was sick that I would, so I have to. I’m just nervous about it.
Anyone else feel that way about cruises?
