Oh Ship! Tales of a Cruising Chick and Ohter Travel Adventures

My Review

A must have travel companion for all happy cruisers. Even seasoned travelers will find this book informative. Plus, there’s plenty of laughs.

Lori is a globe trotter, on the high seas. In the back of the book she lists all the places she’s been, and I was envious.

Her little book is chock full of true adventures. The chapters are brief, one to two pages, which makes this a fast, fun read.

After bursting out laughing several times, I knew Lori would be a wonderful person to hit the seas with. Watch for her if you ever go on a cruise. You’ll have the time of your life.

FYI! If you see two women sprawled out on a staircase, don’t worry. It’s just Lori and her travel friend having a good time.

This book is 132 pages, packed with adventure, photos, and handy dandy travel tips at the end of each chapter.

The title cracked me up too. Just change one letter.

Ahoy! This book may just save your life. Just kidding. But it is a great addition for your travels, so make sure you pack it in your suitcase.

5 Stars



Reading Lori A. Moore’s true tales of things that happen on the high seas will have you saying, “Oh Ship!”

From stories of passengers pepper-spraying other passengers to grown men fighting over glass figurines of penguins, you’ll laugh until your ribs hurt.

Book Excerpt:

          As security was escorting the middle-aged woman from the second floor of the formal dining room, my friends overheard the woman saying, “But I only maced her once!”  Curious, they followed behind and sat nearby to eavesdrop on the conversation while security questioned the woman whom they had just sat down in an empty lounge area.

          Of all the things you could imagine one woman macing another woman for, what do you think this incident was over?  A man, perhaps?  Not even close.  It was over a cup of hot chocolate!  Yes, apparently this woman’s tablemate had drank her hot chocolate at dinner, so she pulled out her pepper spray and maced her with it.

          Why it didn’t occur to the woman to just order another hot chocolate is beyond me.  What further boggles my mind is why she thought just macing someone once was so much better than having maced her multiple times.

  5. I’m glad you enjoyed this book! There’s certainly humor in people-watching, and a cruise is probably a perfect venue. I chuckled over the excerpt.
