Text: "Mike -- Mmm, mmmm -- life is so tough. I passed on the tour of the rain forest today to stay on board and bake in the sun (I have strict instructions to return with a media tan!) - these cruises are amazing - practically all of your unnecessary systems shut down in less than 24 hours and relaxation sets in! The only vestige left writes postcards -- see you soon! Bill"
