Well, being a sea I suppose it does whilst the Channel isn't a sea so doesn't!! I suppose it could be argued that the Atlantic doesn't qualify either as it is an ocean!!

I've never been on a cruise ship either, and am not inclined to try now.
I've never gone skiing (get lots of pressure on this one from friends; I'm absolutely 100% sure I'd enjoy it, but then, I enjoy not doing it also, and there's a real risk of bodily damage and I don't like the cold!)
I've never broken a bone.
I used to be able to say, I've never spent the night in a hospital but sadly that one fell when I thought I'd had a heart attack a few years ago and was kept in for observation. Nothing found, but it did ruin my great record!

I miss cruising. At the end of next month we should have been cruising from Vancouver to Sydney via SF, LA, Hawaii and many pacific islands, then NZ to Oz...takes around 28 days. We have done similar for the last few years. We also take a month long cruise with my Sis and BIL in January. I know many people dislike the thought of cruising, but IMO there is cruising and cruising. All depends on which cruise line you travel with. Oh well, perhaps this time next year...

That kind of cruise where your seeing pretty cool places I could do, its something I always wanted to do, but likely never will.

But I don't have desire to do any of those short 3-5 day types.

We were late into cruising...about 15 years ago. I thought I would get bored, therefore I wasn’t interested. When we moved to Canada 7 years ago, we used to drive down to Florida during the winter and hop on and off cruise ships. Last minute bookings were the price of one or two nights stay in a Ft Lauderdale hotel. It was a no brainer. Our New Year cruises meant I could spend time with my only sibling. Fortunately our husbands are very much alike and get on very well.

The one time I have done a short (6 day) cruise was during spring break. We left Miami with a load of college kids. They were a hoot. I loved every moment of it!! The last morning when we were due to disembark, there was an announcement that we had to stay in our cabin for a head count. A girl had reported her boyfriend ‘overboard’. He had in fact spent the night with another girl and she thought it would be a good idea to get back at him to report him as ‘overboard’. As we left the ship, the FEDS were waiting to arrest her.

I can safely say that I have never been on a cruise ship, never likely to, and I can hold my moral head high and say I've never been cruising. (Don't you just love the English language?)

Typical of Ray...tough on the outside but mush inside. He was always helping people behind the scenes of BE.
