It's not to be judged as the same activity at all!
Nancie and I sometimes take a vacation
from our cruising to spend a couple weeks on cruise
ships. I know I won't have my boat on the Nile, the Yang-Tse, the Amazon, Alaska
, the Galapagos
Islands or cruising from Australia
to New Zealand
, but we've been there on vessels like this or smaller.
I have a little difficulty when someone is quick to pick up the napkin that falls from my lap, but I do enjoy the food, the variety of people and the leisure.
