<<I've been on over 20 cruises. Which isn't many compared to a lot of my (older) cruising friends, many of whom have been on 50 or more.
My wife and I went on our first cruise last December. (Well, in the spirit of full disclosure, I'm retired from the Navy, so I have "cruised" before, but not the same way.)>>
My father made much the same kind of remark, recalling that his other cruising experience was aboard an LST with 1200 people aboard on the way to the Tarawa invasion during WWII.
Wow! Falkland Islands --- a lot of history there going back a few centuries. Cape Horn --- ditto. How was your weather and seas for that passage?
