Somali cruise package departing
from Sawakin in the Sudan, docking at Bagamoya in Tanzania.
received this from a Beartown travel agent and thought I'd send
it along in case any of you are planning vacations at this time
of year. The cost is a bit high, but seems well worth it,
considering the value. What is enlightening is that the cruise
line is encouraging passengers to bring their own high-powered
weapons. However, if passengers don't have weapons, they can be
rented from the cruise line. There will be a master gunsmith on
board, with reloading parties scheduled every afternoon. The
cruise lasts from 4-8 days. The ship will sail up and down the
coast of Somalia waiting for a hijack attack by pirates.
