I don't swim in waves or anyplace I can't touch in the ocean. For that matter, I don't go on boats where I can't swim to shore, lol. This is coming from a former boat owner...who only used his boat in a late that was 18 miles long by 3 miles at the widest point. If my life was in danger I can swim one mile with ease...so I felt safe, I would NEVER to a cruise because I cant swim to safety. Yes, I am very strange
