I blogged yesterday about how reluctant I would be to serve on a jury at the moment. Here’s another thing I don’t think I’m planning on doing anytime soon: going on a cruise.
At it happens, Royal Caribbean recently announced that it is offering FREE CRUISES to those volunteers (fool)hardy enough to climb aboard as Royal Caribbean tests the waters (see what I did there?) as it attempts to return to some semblance of normalcy.
Royal Caribbean cautions that the fun levels may be dialed back a smidge, and all passengers will need to sign waivers acknowledging that they are engaging in an “inherently risky activity.” While the destination for the first cruise — which could embark as soon as next month — has not been announced, it is speculated that the ship will sail for CocoCay, the company’s private island in the Bahamas. Fittingly, one of its attractions is a 135-foot waterslide called Daredevil’s Peak.
More than 100,000 people have already put their names in to be selected for the cruise.
