As Far as the Eye Can See

-Last summer's view of the Atlantic Ocean from our cruise ship.

As the Royal Carribean cruise ship, Voyager of the Seas, sailed along the Atlantic Ocean at an impressive nautical speed, we were seated around an elegantly dressed table for our first sit-down dinner. Every family member welcomed the vacation and appreciated the premium seating near the huge portal windows. With nothing but deepwater surrounding us, the oceanic view became intoxicatingly endless. I longed for a glimpse of a dolphin or whale.

Our ten-year-old son Jimmy, made a startling revelation starboard side. A knee-jerk reaction propelled him to stand and move towards the windows. Jimmy pointed across the ocean. He beckoned his mother to come hither.

Jimmy shouted, “Hey, I see a Toys R Us store!”

Miles away from coastal commerce, a speck of that trademarked neon sign was indeed visible to the naked eye. As far as I can sea, that takes a trained eye.

Ahem, would the cruise line for Voyager of the Seas not be Royal Caribbean??? I believe the Carnival Victory was the Carnival ship in our shared repertoire. But then, I've been known to be wrong...
