Love my husband and son to bits, but I could not do this.....

Oh what a fabulous trip! I'd have wanted a bigger cabin and it sounds as if they shared it with the kids? I wonder if that is journalistic licence and they really had 2 or 3? And I probably would have spent 3 years out of the 7 being seasick!

But I envy them, though - just would've wanted a bigger boat (ship!) !!

What an adventure! I bet the kids learned more from that than being in school.

I would have been seasick too - I am not a good sailor.

This

would suit me fine.
Yep, I could sail around the world for 7 years, ah shoot, forever on this boat!

I'd settle for a nice houseboat on the Norfolk Broads.

It's lovely Loretto - not sure I'd want to LIVE on a ship (that's how they advertised it when it was first launched, I remember). It would be a bit like Waterworld except you could go off every so often to visit land!!

And I am sure that although all the cabins are wonderful, some are obviously more wonderful than others (and presumably the higher the deck the higher the price? Couldn't find prices on the site - FAR too vulgar, dear!!) and so there is going to be some sort of snobbery going on??? Maybe not.

However, having said all that, I see that there is a 6-bedroom penthouse available for sale - that'll do me and Zak nicely, thank you!!

I wonder do they need room maids????

I'll employ you, Loretto!!

Hope you can wait - just got to win the Lottery first!!

:)
