A Guide to Cruising by Dr. Dave (Roberts)

CenturyIntroduction… If you are new to cruising or are just looking for a few pointers, I hope you will find this eBook an interesting one. I have traveled the world for over thirty-five years collecting stories and interesting facts that have served me well playing Jeopardy at home (my kids swear I cheat), but I have only started cruising within the last four years. Note to self: Working aboard US Navy ships is not cruising.

So the following eBook is a collection of facts and stories from my travels in Europe, North to South America, and “Down Under” that you might find interesting, or useful (i.e., don’t jog along trails next to crocs), or just fun. Please read and enjoy…
