pirate 'But Why Is All the Rum Gone?' What Can't You Do Without on a Long Distance Cruise?

For me it's "Lyons Gold Blend", strong Irish Blended Tea with two spoons of cane sugar and fresh milk, the day just don't start right otherwise! Oh.. and of course red wine, blood of mankind, who can live without it !

Fresh brewed Folgers Mountain Roast w/fresh cream. Pussers Navy Rum or Captain Morgans Spiced Rum now that's nectar of the Gawds!

I take it you're one of the lucky few that dosen't suffer from a caffeine crash. If I'm without strong tea or coffee I get a severe headache that lasts 3 days and absolute zero energy. Worst hangover ever! Now I usually quit a week before I travel.

I'm with "gonesail" on this one. I quit drinking a while back. Best thing I ever did. I used to drink like a fish.
I remember one time leaving the dock for a seven day passage with a severe hangover.
That was with out doubt the worst week of my life and could have been one of the best.
Alcohol makes people do stupid things. I've seen too many lives ruined by it.
I don't mind if others choose to do it, it's just not for me.

Very true and wise. I have a hard fast rule of no Alcohol for anyone including myself during passage making but when we reach port it's time to relax the rules a bit.

A cup of Cafe Du Monde in the morning starts the day out right.

I like wine...I have type one diabetes and all my doctors tell me to have a glass of red a day for the cuirculation...
Everything in moderation....yeh right!
I have to say that with the exception of the wine...I'm like the monkey and cocain...most things are in excess...guess thats why I won't be cruising full time again.

Soft toilet paper

Too much traveling in countries that don't sell it. I'm going to keep a secret stash.

C'est quoi du Boursin?

And I have to agree with you about Norah, I have all her albums converted to MP3.
