For some people, the yacht is a must have for a post apocalyptic world. You can use it to find new places, other survivors and food/water. You will need to have a good fuel source, however, which will mean visiting once populated places...which in a zombie world would mean great danger. I guess that scenario would still provide adventure and for those thrill seekers still out there, it would be a good excuse to go visit the mainland on occasion. Just watch out for stowaways and I don't mean Gilligan!
As far at the present goes, this is an adventure I have yet to go on. I have not even gone on a cruise as of yet. Go ahead and accuse me of being a lame travel adviser. (If you want to pay for my cruise experience, I would be more than glad to accept your offer.) With that said, I think going on a cruise or even renting a yacht for a weekend would be an excellent adventure. Maybe not of Bill and Ted status, but excellent just the same. I think when I do opt for the cruise adventure I will lean heavily toward Disney cruises because I have already had such great experiences with their them parks.
For those of you out there who have gone on cruised or rented a yacht or houseboat, what advice do you have for those future deckhands? Please share your advice and it might be on a future post.
