But for the grace of God, Dave56, but for the grace of God.
When we sailed the Elation out of Galveston a couple of years ago, hubby and I were on the top deck -- well, top deck with railing, I don't think it was the Lido Deck, I think it was the one above that? -- anyway....we were leaning on the rail looking down and we saw a young boy -- maybe 10 or so -- climb from one balcony to the balcony next door (we assume his family had rooms next to each other).
My knees got weak just having seen it, since I have two sons of my own (now grown).
There was no way to tell exactly which deck he was on, or which room balconies.....Scared the bejeebers out of me...!
