but i was getting down in the sunlight and beautiful day on the promenade deck. hackensaw boys treated everyone by doing a purely improvisational acoustic set at the time of departure. everyone was dancing & being really silly - dancing in circles holding hands - leaping - etc. people on the cruise ship next to us - i think it was a royal carribean - were waving (on several decks) as we pulled out of the harbor.
we were waving back. dj medi4 did an awesome set following the "boys" that spurred his remark, "this is the kind of party i've been waiting for." there were just so many happy souls enjoying the sweet ocean air and the beautiful vibe. it didn't seem like there was a problem in the world. blissful.
really put a damper on things only a few minutes later when someone first told me 31 people were left at the dock...
jamcruiseII rocked my world. but let's all make an oath next time - one for all and all for one. no one gets left behind. that's just the way it has to be. we'll look out for one another more & think about sh*t like that...if we can.
this wrong must be righted somehow so there's no bad karma going into 2005. i'd like to see all the stranded cruisers back on the boat in 2005. maybe we could have a reunion celebration with a special cake & candles for our stranded castaways... (on the gilligan's island location in nassau...hmmm...)
champagne for everyone!!! all the stranded peeps could have free or greatly reduced passage & a special reward for enduring the hardships of the mighty sea.
or maybe some late night shrimp on the barbie or something like that. we'd have to anchor in nassau overnight.
just an idea...
