Clapping Frog, AKA (DCF or D), recently journeyed
to Scandinavian capitals and St. Petersburg Russia.
His immediate immersion into cruise life really astonished
me. His reactions, in fact, rather saddened
and horrified my sense of propriety. Imagine
my shock the very first day while sailing through
the Kiel Canal in Germany, I turned to see the Norwegian
Dream tilt\flip its smoke stacks in order to pass
under one of the seven large bridges.
