Memoir, Travelogue, Love Story
Discovering cruising (thanks to Linda) has been one of the great joys of my life. So fascinated was I that I documented one particular cruise in the form of a books. It is available on Amazon.com. If you are willing to read it and write a review, I will send you a free print copy, valued at $9.95. Write to me at email@example.com.

Rhapsody of the Seas
Mariner of the Seas from Rome to Galveston, November, 2011. This is the cruise described in my cruise book. For photos, see: www.cruiseoftheheart.com.
MY OTHER WEBSITES
My cruise book has many links to maritime sites of various kinds, including live cams, articles, history, photographs and more. I have added those links here as a resource to those who visit this page. See Links.
Half Moon Cay (Bahamas). Who needs water when you have a rope hammock?
WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE
We're Robert Ferre and Linda Ricketts. Now retired, our favorite pastime is cruising. Our budget is modest, but our enjoyment and appreciation -- of both cruising and each other -- know no bounds. Robert is the webmaster here, so we're keeping things pretty elemental. When you read the pronoun "I" in some of the writing, it refers to Robert. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or via his personal website: www.robertferre.com.

No Further Updates
This website was going to be part of my growing credentials as a travel writer specializing in cruises. But it's too much work. I'd rather be working on my book writing. I'm still working on becoming a lecturer on cruise ships. If that comes to fruition, I will announce it here. Otherwise, the January 2016 update and the photo essay on our most recent Caribbean cruise will be the last posts for this website.
