They say that with age comes wisdom. Well, no doubt that growing older carries many virtues, and in the spirit of appreciating the refinements that come with age, today I board a United Airlines flight en route to Barcelona, where I will transfer to a vessel that has operated for nearly three decades.
Despite the age of the vessel, I am reasonably sure that she will, once again, deliver one of the best travel experiences of my life. In fact, during the next seven days, I will be updating an article I wrote a few years ago outlining 10 reasons that you may want to hop on board.
To make it interesting for you avid cruisers, I won’t reveal the name of the vessel just yet, but you’re free to guess in the comments section below. (Can’t see the comments section? Click here and scroll down.)
I notch up another year myself two days after boarding, when I turn 55, and, of course, an infinitely [insert adjectives here] man on a refined vessel that still promises to deliver one of the world’s best travel experiences.
