Cruise crossings. I’ve written several times about how much Alan and I enjoy them. But I have a feeling that I still haven’t convinced some of our baby boomer readers about how adventurous a day at sea can be.
So, today, I’m posting one of the daily programs from our recent Atlantic crossing on the Seabourn Sojourn. See if you don’t agree that it’s anything but boring.
Start your day off with workouts on the gym equipment or jog on an outside deck. Don’t forget breakfast.

Of course you can also shop in the boutique, read a newspaper in Seabourn Square or lounge on an outside chaise with a good book.
