Jim,

I guess this is the equal to freighter cruising for months at a time, but with the shorter Great Lakes schedule. Not my cup of tea to do one of those long ocean freighter cruises, but I might consider something that was 5 days "more or less" just to experience how it is for the crew on a "laker". I wonder if they have internet?

Jim, not sure what would be worse, the motion of the ocean on that barge, or the ear bleeds I would get from the crew singing karaoke.

Well, first of all it's not a barge.

Second of all it's not on the ocean, but on the great lakes, even though the motion can be tought enough there as well.

When it comes to the karaoke singing I'll - after 12 years at sea also on cargo ships - support you on that.

Nope, don't like babel fish... I use another site!!
I barely have a grasp of English. I do know a little Russian. (his name is Igor and he is only 4 feet tall)
Anyways, every time I look at that freighter, I have a recurring thought of the Edmund Fitzgerald. (that darn Gordon Lightfoot song will be stuck in my head all day)

Now it's stuck in my head dr. Gordon Lightfoot had so many great songs but it seems all he is known for is the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

If I win the trip, I'll sail on that ship
I'll go without hesitation.
I will remember my friends from Cruise-Chat
when I take my 5 day vacation

Where ever it sails, whatever the ports,
it will be a trip to remember.
To Princess it pales, no concierge tales
I hope it's not in November.

... va bene, ma fate tenere il mixer a me! E se lo sgabello della batteria sarÓ libero, finirÓ che mi ci sieder˛ !

Sorry, not Swahili and/or Mandarin ... but you've also been provided with some old good Italian in this thread.
Ah, in that barbaric language called English sounds like ... OK, but let me run the P.A. system ! And if the drum throne will be free, I will end sitting on it !

P.S. let me find that old ripped vocabulary out from my school stuff - and you'll have it in latin too (mmm, did they have mixers and drumsets ... ? )
