Cruising

Selected Images from some Cruises

By cruising I mean living on a boat for a while and using the boat to travel from port to port to see the sights therein. Since the size of the boat determines the waters you cruise in, how far you travel each day, the number of people you travel with, and the type of activities you engage in at each port, I have divided the CRUISING section into three subsections:

  • Sailboats: All of these cruises involved no more than eight passengers at a time, traveling on yachts less than 60 feet in length. Most of yachts were chartered, but some were owned personally by me or a friend. The cruising grounds were spread out all over the world, but each cruise was confined to a small section of coastline or a small number of islands.
  • Small Boats: All of the cruises in this section were taken on commercial passenger vessels, all but one of them carrying less than 150 passengers. The venues included rivers, inland waterways, sea coasts, and island groups.
  • Large Ships: The cruises in this section were all on ocean liners each carrying a thousand passengers or more and each trip covering a thousand miles or more.
