A Strange Thing Happend On Our Cruise Ship

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First, I want to explain that my husband and I are really not well versed in the cruise experience. We went on a 4 day cruise a couple of years ago with our youngest son and his wife. This year, Leon Mentzer, part of the christianstorytellers.com group, put together a marketing cruise for authors. We signed up over a year ago and were very excited about cruising for 8 days in the Mexican Riveria on The Carnival Spirit Ship.

We met some very wonderful people in our christianstoryteller group and made fast friends. As we were eating breakfast on the morning we were to arrive at Alcupulco, Mexico we heard a voice over the intercom saying, "Code Star Bright at cabin XXXX" My husband and I looked at one another in wonderment. Later we found that Star Bright was the code that meant that someone passed away on the cruise. We contemplated the complications involved in that senerio.

When we entered our stateroom I looked at the daily bulleting and noticed a notation next to the 2:30 p.m. slot. It said something about a memorial for the friends of Bill W. We decided that we should attend the memorial because we felt sure that the widow didn't have many people on board for support. We proceeded to tell our new friends about our plans to attend the memorial. They began to laugh. We were confused by their reaction until they told us that the "memorial for the friends of Bill W." was code for an Alcoholics
Anonymous meeting!

We were all laughing by that time and people who passed us in the lounge asked what could ever be that funny. Our new friends explained and they joined in the laughter...
Live and learn...We found out later that Bill W was the founder of AA.

Oh my! This would be me, too. I know nothing about cruising! You should write a little handbook of all the things no one tells you about a cruise ship. ( :
