I spent six nights on a narrowboat in September this year.

I’ve also spent another 24 nights on other narrowboats several years ago, as well as a total of 12 nights on the Norfolk Broads.

In addition to that I’ve spent 13 nights on a cruise ship in the Caribbean and one night on a ferry crossing from Northern Ireland when I was young.
Not to mention the 12 nights you spent on a wooden raft hunting alligators down the Yangtze river.

Also did the night ferry to the mainland as a child... Once and never again. Also said that about the boat to the Andaman islands. I suspect a cruise could if you wanted it to, feel like you're not on a boat?

The only time, more than a few hours, I spent on a boat, well actually a ship, was on the Queen Mary coming to Canada with my mum, a war bride, in 1946 to join my dad in Montreal.

Did I inappropriately use too many commas in my response?🤔😁
I, don't, think, you, did, old chap.

Yep! I was badly seasick as it was very rough seas.

The cruise was disappointing and I’d never do it again; poor weather, thousands of very noisy Americans who could consume volumes of food like nothing I’ve witnessed before or since.

We did meet up with 4 Canadians though. One of them was the inventor and founder of a firm called “Doggles” which is goggles for dogs. They also educated us on the all you can eat thing at the captain’s dinner. We all had lobster and steak surf n turf; I casually mentioned “I could eat that again” and Doggles guy called the waiter over and said “four more lobster surf n turfs please”. As a Brit I was astonished that we could just have it all again. He also introduced me to a drink called a Black Russian which was also on the all inclusive… so we all got a bit pissed. A great night and a highlight of the trip.

That kind of story is a highlight of travelling for sure. Usually I travel alone or maybe with 1 maximum 2 other people on rare occasions but ended up in a group of 6 in the Andaman islands after meeting people on the boat.
