Snub Boat? 2

Cruise shipI hadn’t realized what cruising has done for me until a writer friend dithered over her clothes and etiquette while attending my dolphin presentation at the local country club.  Before my first cruise I was equally stressed that all those rich, sophisticated people would look down their noses at me.  Now that I’ve spent a couple months sailing with seriously wealthy cruisers, I say “no worries Mate.”  There are always people looking for ways to feel superior, but Steve and I found that most frequent-cruisers are looking for friendly conversations rather than one-up ops.  People who are into status games must have a tough time figuring out who to snub because multi-millionaires generally dress and act the way they want to.  A pair of thrifty, threadbare, oafs could be the richest, most accomplished couple on the ship.

But so what if everybody else’s rocks are bigger?  The most successful folks on a cruise ship are the ones that have the most fun.  Live it up!
