    Special cruise 2009 offer for adventurous travelers.

    I found this in another forum.. enjoy!

    SPECIAL CRUISE 2009 OFFER FOR ADVENTUROUS TRAVELERS.
    I found a Somali cruise package that departs from Sawakin (in the Sudan ) and docks at Bagamoya (in Tanzania ).
    The cost is a bit high @ $800 per person double occupancy but I didn't find that offensive. What I found encouraging and enlightened is that the cruise is encouraging people to bring their 'High powered weapons' along on the cruise.
    If you don't have weapons you can rent them right there on the boat. They claim to have a master blacksmith on board and will have reloading parties every afternoon.
    The cruise lasts from 4-8 days and nights and costs a maximum of $3200 per person double occupancy (4 days). All the boat does is sail up and down the coast of Somalia waiting to get hijacked by pirates.
    Here are some of the costs and claims associated with the package:
    $800.00 US/per day double occupancy (4 day max billing)
    M-16 full auto rental $25.00/day - ammo at 100 rounds of 5.56 armour piercing ammo at $15.95
    Ak-47 rifle @ No charge - ammo at 100 rounds of 7.62 com block ball ammo at $14.95
    Barrett M-107 .50 cal sniper rifle rental $55.00/day - ammo at 25 rounds 50 cal armour piercing at $9.95
    Crew members can double as spotters for 30.00 per hour (spotting scope included).
    Far Out ---- they even offer RPG's at 75 bucks and 200 dollars for 3 standard loads
    "Everyone gets use of free complimentary night vision equipment and coffee and snacks on the top deck from 7pm-6am."
    Meals are not included but seem reasonable.
    Most cruises offer a mini-bar.
    These gung ho entrepreneurs offer......... get this .....
    "MOUNTED MINIGUN AVAILABLE @ $450.00 per 30 seconds of sustained fire"
    Sign my arse up!
    They advertise group rates and corporate discounts...... and even claim "FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY"
    They even offer a partial money back guarantee if not satisfied.
    Here's some text from the ad:
    "We guarantee that you will experience at least two hijacking attempts by pirates or we will refund half your money back including gun rental charges and any unused ammo ( mini gun charges not included)..
    How can we guarantee you will experience a hijacking?
    We operate at 5 knots within 12 miles of the coast of Somalia. If an attempted Hijacking does not occur we will turn the boat around and cruise by at 4 knots.
    We will repeat this for up to 8 days making three passes a day along the entire length of Somalia.
    At night the boat is fully lit and bottle rockets are shot off at intervals and loud disco music beamed shore side to attract attention. Cabin space is limited so respond quickly. Reserve your package before Feb 29 and get 100 rounds of free tracer ammo in the calibre of your choice."
    As if all that isn't enough to whet your appetite, there were a few testimonials:


    "Six attacks in 4 days was more than I expected. I bagged three pirates and my 12yr old son sank two rowboats with the minigun. PIRATES 0 -PASSENGERS-32! Well worth the trip. Just make sure your spotter speaks English"
    Ned, Salt Lake City , Utah USA


    I haven't had this much fun since flying choppers in NAM . Don't worry about getting shot by pirates as they never even got close to the ship with those weapons they use and their crappy aim--reminds me of a drunken 'juicer' door gunner we picked up from the motor pool back in Nam"
    "Chopper' Dan ----Toledo USA.


    Finally, someone had the common sense to cash in AND solve a major problem
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    I have traveled by every method except a cruise ship, sounds like a good oneto add to my list. Wonder if there are any bag limits on pirates?

    If the pirates bid higher than you...you will be kidnapped
    and your ransome will be much more profitable than your
    cruise ticket

    What happens if you encounter some pirates with RPG's?

    These people think this is a safari? Somebody might get shot
    on both sides..thats what war is about.

    Do we have to tag them like deer when done? Can a taxidermist stuff one of those guys, that would be cool in the den.

    I'd have mine stuffed with a real surprised look on his face, the one he gets when he realizes he is encountering resistance
