Just cruising or living on the sea?

We are late-comers to the cruise ship travel agenda, having only been on two, the Oceania Marina through the Mediterranean and the Silversea Silver Cloud around the Horn of South America. Hardly qualifies us as cruise judges.

OTOH, partake in a cruise and all of a sudden (and because I showed online interest) we are inundated with cruise brochures from our new best friends mentioned above and from other lines which feel certain we'd like to join them on a water jaunt. And we might! The brochures are enticing, the itineraries nearly the same. It's a matter of timing and perks.

So, speaking of perks: Seabourn is a small ship cruise line. Perusing their latest mailing is enough to give one the I-wants. There's even a club you join when you cruise, just like the others, with a point earned for each Sailed Day.

The highest status of the Seabourn club is 250+ days. That's eight-plus months of sailing! Do you take that in 10-16 day cruises? Eight-plus months spent on a ship. In the ocean. It seems an astounding amount of time, but perhaps it's not.

I must still be too land-bound. I'll be doing good to reach any sort of milestone with a cruise line. But I'm glad some people do. The perks are really good.
