A Sailor's Life in the Cruise Industry

As a sailor at sea, 

I fell in love with the sight of the sunrises and sunsets.

I fell in love with the smell of the salt air.

I fell in love with the sound of the waves.

I fell in love with the feeling of excitement as we sailed to each port of call.

I need the sea because it teaches me.

As a sailor at sea,

 

I fell in love with the thought of hope each day brings.

I fell in love with the opportunities to learn and explore. 

I fell in love with putting on the uniform and being part of a team. 

I fell in love with meeting people from all corners of the earth. 

I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm

learning how to sail my ship. 

Louisa May Alcott

As a sailor at sea,

 

I fell in love with the routine and knowing the schedule to come.

I fell in love with the surroundings of decadence.

I fell in love with the awesome wonder of seeing miracles and happiness unfold each day for passengers and fellow crew members.

I fell in love with the sailor who captured my heart.

I wanted freedom, open air, adventure.

I found it on the sea.

As a sailor at sea, 

I fell in love with being a seafarer.

I fell in love with making awesome memories stored deep in my heart.

When a man comes to like a sea life,

he is not fit to live on land. 

Dr. Samuel Johnson

As a sailor at sea, 

The blood of a sailor now pumps daily in my being. 

I fell in love with the faith that strengthened me to walk this journey.

I fell in love with witnessing the majesty of seeing the fingerprints of the Almighty Creator when I look at each sunrise and sunset. 

They that go down to the ship, that

do business in great waters; these

see the works of the Lord, and

His wonder in the deep. 

Psalm 107: 23-24

As a sailor at sea,

Most of all, I fell in love with the Almighty Creator who put me here to enjoy the splendor of this journey. 

Once a seafarer, always a seafarer at heart. 

This is the heart and life of this Sailor.

It is not that life at shore is

distasteful for me. But that life

at sea is better. 

Sir Francis Drake
