Cruise Ship Condo
Saturday, Aug. 09, 2003, 2:21 p.m.

QUESTION: Condos that cruise?

WHAT I LEARNED: Sometimes junk mail has a humor factor.

I just got a note from a timeshare/condominium sales company about of all things - cruise ship condos. I guess I missed this new trend due to my recent flip-flop fixation.

They said that they were Cruise Ship Developers and they were doing an interesting type of development indeed. They were converting ships Ė big and small Ė into cruise ship condominiums.

Yes, thatís right - condo ships.

And if I canít afford a premium water-view balcony unit on one of their condo ships, I might be able to swing something on a smaller vessel. I wonder how small these smaller vessels go? Do tugboats count? Houseboats? River rafts? Is there a condo-motorboat option?

And if I canít even swing the crummiest unit on the smallest of their small vesselsĖ well, I can buy a fractional share. Now thatís some unique cocktail party chatter - ďYes, I do own a piece of a cruise line but I donít like to brag.Ē

I think I will write them a note. It will say Ė

I saw the Titanic and even have the t-shirt. Last week I saw Ghost Ship and had nightmare for a week. Cruise ship condo - I donít think so!

I believe I will sit outside at night and gaze at the stars instead. I donít need a timeshare to do that yet.
