    Two vacations Michmi will never take.

    1. A trip for any length of time to any place in Mexico.
    2. A cruise.

    No thank you!

    Well at least it is just propulsion problems!

    Those poor cruisers could be all suffering from a ship-born illness, or one of them could be overboard!

    I will take propulsion problems any time!

    Or stuffed toilets or sea sick passengers. I went on a cruise once in 8-10 ft seas, and everyone was sick. It was so gross. That is one cruise I lost weight instead of gaining.

    Remember this one?

    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there.

    Caribbean Princess Update

    Caribbean Princess experienced a problem with the port propulsion motor which necessitated the ship returning to San Juan yesterday to evaluate the situation. After further review by technical experts, we have confirmed the full extent of the damage to the motor. We now know the time and work required to make the repairs and we regret that we need to cancel the next two voyages, departing March 18 and March 25...

    I went on a cruise, once. My then-boyfriend had won it in a drawing at work, so it was totally free...when I got home, I *still* wanted my money back.
