Granted I went on one when I was 12 and that’s it, but I had a lot of fun. No real obligations, just tons of food. Reply bd on February 15, 2013 at 12:11 am Panel One: Amen. Reply Ol' Gui on February 15, 2013 at 12:36 am Did you mention Pirates? Hotels usually don’t have pirates bounding about the hallways. Seasick pirates fleeing from an iceberg shaped like a gigantic sea serpent. Maybe a seaserpent named Cecil. Reply Jeff Clough on February 15, 2013 at 2:31 am OMG! A Beanie & Cecil Reference. You do realize you just dated yourself? Awesome and **LIKE LIKE LIKE** Reply Gort on February 15, 2013 at 5:07 am OMG… Did you not catch his posted name in the first place? (another “old guy” here… sigh. Reply Jeff Clough on February 15, 2013 at 10:46 am Totally missed it. Showing MY age for sure… Reply Col Klink on April 7, 2013 at 9:06 am Especially as you missed that ’twas Cecil who was seasick. KJ on February 15, 2013 at 12:52 am Ah yes, The Kraken does often come and go around the pacific these days. Something ’bout toxic spills in the water and giant squids it mutters. They just don’t sell medusa’s head in discount stores like they used to, too. Reply NiacTD on February 15, 2013 at 4:06 am I beg to differ. Well, maybe not a discount store, but…http://compare.ebay.com/like/330871848289?var=lv<yp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar Reply Bob in Nashville on February 15, 2013 at 6:44 am She’s turned to stone. Did a Corbomite guy look at her? Reply Gort on February 15, 2013 at 5:14 am Anyway, my experiences with cruise ships were very nice. (all two of them) The trips were smooth, the accomodations excellent, the service first rate. I’ve done much worse in supposedly high ranked hotels. (I used to travel a lot) Reply Jimmy on February 15, 2013 at 5:31 am Good timing for this one with the cruise ship Triumph being stuck out in the Gulf. I think that and this comic combined put the cruise ship industry back about 30 years. Reply Dave Dell on February 15, 2013 at 7:37 am One experience on a cruise ship was enough for me. Standing room only in the pool, crowds everywhere. And, of course, since they don’t ever take them out of service for updating, it’s done in the middle of your cruise. They replace thousands of square yards of carpeting. The glue smells were horrendous. Reply ECHO on February 15, 2013 at 9:12 am I was on a 7 day cruise which turned into 8 because we were right behind hurricane Sandy. The pool deck was closed almost the entire time so I boozed it up to the tune of 1k. Reply LanceThruster on February 15, 2013 at 10:14 am My dad was a host on a cruise ship line and got to travel the world dancing with the blue-haired ladies. It was funny screening calls for him for the women he gave his tel # to. Reply TinoKP on February 15, 2013 at 10:46 am I remember on a cruise I was on years ago, the captain was going around chatting with people, and he slipped and fell into the pool…and the lifeguard had to save him. I didn’t feel very secure after that. Reply Rhea on February 15, 2013 at 11:24 am I don’t know– if the captain can’t swim, he’s pretty confident the ship won’t sink, no? Or are you referring to his klutziness? Reply N0083rP00F on February 15, 2013 at 2:05 pm May-hap it was Captain Horatio Huffenpuff or maybe Captain Peter Wrongway Peachfuzz? Reply BugFanNo1million on February 15, 2013 at 5:48 pm Running a ship requires exactly zero swimming ability. Reply AckAckAck on February 16, 2013 at 1:23 am Inability to swim usually motivate the captain more to keep the boat afloat. Reply fluffy on February 15, 2013 at 1:34 pm What I don’t get about cruise ships is what the heck are you supposed to do on them, and why does that require being out at sea? Reply Music-chan on February 15, 2013 at 11:36 pm I believe the being out at sea part is mostly for the view. Sure, you can go to a nice hotel somewhere with a lot of the same perks but you’re just going to be looking at stationary views the whole time. Plus, cruise ships have a tendency to stop at multiple ports so people can visit exotic locations. All depends on the cruise you’re on. Reply tymime on February 15, 2013 at 5:07 pm I dunno, when you think of what’s seen on Gordon Ramsay’s Hotel Hell, cruise ships seem rather nice. Reply Rusty on February 15, 2013 at 5:31 pm So this has to be a shot at Carnival Cruise Lines and their Fecal Express Caribbean Tour. Reply PokeyPuppy on February 17, 2013 at 6:20 pm Just got off of JoCo Cruise Crazy 3, it was unbelievably AWESOME. jococruisecrazy.com/ Reply Izzie on February 15, 2014 at 4:23 pm Disney cruises are GREAT. You got pools, free ice cream, i’m pretty sure there’s a free buffet, bars, gift shops, places for all ages including an adult’s lounge, teenager areas, I already said bars, kids club and baby area. You should get on a Disney cruise! 😀 Reply Trackbacks/Pingbacks Your other comic for the day | House of the Dread - [...] have to say that I don’t understand wanting to go on a cruise [...] Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
