Take a cruise vacation

Guys,

I just had to share this with you!


I found a Somali cruise package that departs from Sawakin (in the Sudan) and docks at Bagamoya (in Tanzania)..
The cost is a bit high at $800 per person double occupancy but I didn't find that offensive. What I found encouraging and enlightened is that the cruise is encouraging people to bring their 'High powered weapons' along on the cruise.
If you don't have weapons you can rent them right there on the boat. They claim to have a master gunsmith on board and will have reloading parties every afternoon.
The cruise lasts from 4-8 days and nights and costs a maximum of $3200 per person double occupancy (4 days). All the boat does is sail up and down the coast of Somalia waiting to get hijacked by pirates.
Here are some of the costs and claims associated with the package:
$800.00 US/per day double occupancy (4 day max billing)
M-16 full auto rental $25.00/day - ammo at 100 rounds of 5.56 armour piercing ammo at $15.95
AK-47 rifle @ No charge - ammo at 100 rounds of 7.62 comm block ball ammo at $14.95
Barrett M-107 .50 cal sniper rifle rental $55.00/day - ammo at 25 rounds 50 cal armour piercing at $9.95
Crew members can double as spotters for 30.00 per hour (spotting scope included).
FAR OUT!!!!!!! even RPG's at 75 bucks and 200 dollars for 3 standard loads
"Everyone gets use of free complimentary night vision equipment and coffee and snacks on the top deck from 7pm-6am."
Meals are not included but seem reasonable.
Most cruises offer a mini-bar.
These gung ho entrepreneurs offer......... get this .....
"MOUNTED MINIGUN AVAILABLE @ $450.00 per 30 seconds of sustained fire"
Sign me up!
They advertise group rates and corporate discounts...... and even claim
"FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY"
They even offer a partial money back guarantee if not satisfied.
Here's some text from the ad:
"We guarantee that you will experience at least two hijacking attempts by pirates or we will refund half your money back including gun rental charges and any unused ammo (mini gun charges not included)..
How can we guarantee you will experience a hijacking?
We operate at 5 knots within 12 miles of the coast of Somalia.. If an attempted Hijacking does not occur we will turn the boat around and cruise by at 4 knots.
We will repeat this for up to 8 days making three passes a day along the entire length of Somalia.
At night the boat is fully lit and bottle rockets are shot off at intervals and loud disco music beamed shore side to attract attention. Cabin space is limited so respond quickly. Reserve your package before May 29 and get 100 rounds of free tracer ammo in the calibre of your choice."
As if all that isn't enough to whet your appetite, there were a few testimonials:
"Six attacks in 4 days was more than I expected. I bagged three pirates and my 12yr old son sank two rowboats with the minigun. PIRATES 0 -PASSENGERS-32! Well worth the trip. Just make sure your spotter speaks English" - Ned, Salt Lake city , Utah USA

I haven't had this much fun since flying choppers in NAM . Don't worry about getting shot by pirates as they never even got close to the ship with those weapons they use and their shitty aim--reminds me of a drunken 'juicer' door gunner we picked up from the motor pool back in Nam" "chopper' Dan ----Toledo USA.

"Like ducks in a barrel. They turned the ship around and we saw them bleed and cry in the water like little girls. Saw one wounded pirate eaten by sharks--what a laugh riot!! This is a must do.--- Zeke-Minnahaw Springs Kentucky USA
