|In case you’ve never seen SS Galaxy there it is!
It occupies three entire sims
and has everything the finest cruise liners have.
A couple weeks ago, friends joined me for something I was calling Sea Cruise 2012. In essence, Leanna and I checked into a suite aboard SS Galaxy cruise ship early in the week, then started inviting friends to drop by and hang out.
I made an attempt to send out a formal invite but before I finished I realized I’d be buried in questions (which I was anyway), so I just started looking to see who was online. You might be thinking that’s not very smart but I found that the spontaneous responses were great.
There were events on the ships calendar but mostly we planned our own activities which included our little flotilla from SL New England. The highlight of the cruise was our Scuba diving expedition but also that weekend many of the same friends joined us for the Parade over at Bay City. There were other people on the ship but based on past experience, I felt it would be fun to invite as many friends as you can.

checking out all the amusements,
of which there are many.

That’s me, Tippy, Sommer & Gracee.
Yeah, we all seem to like pink *smiles*
|A popular place turned out to be the gym!
That’s me and Leanna working out after lunch.
I love banging that heavy bag.
|Here’s a bunch of friends visiting.
Yeah, many suites have two story living rooms!
I wanted the sea cruise to be casual, no expectations, no obligations. I felt that SS Galaxy was ideal if I rented a suite and just use that as a base for activities. The whole feel aboard SS Galaxy is sea cruise and I tried to be aboard as much as possible during the week. I wanted friends would know there to hangout, but there was no pressure to do anything at a specific time.
I have this idea. I’ve been playing around with it for years. I’ve mentioned it here several times, but the idea is taking shape. The idea is to find ways to bring life to regions that are beautiful and interesting. Many of the most fascinating places in Second Life may or may not have people when you visit. Second Life is full of these types of regions.
I’ll be writing about my idea again soon.
