    To The Point is excited to offer the ultimate adventure cruise along the pirate-infested coast of Somalia!

    We board our luxury cruise ship in Djibouti on the Gulf of Aden near the entrance to the Red Sea, and disembark in Mombassa, Kenya seven adrenaline-charged days later.

    Starting at $5,200 per-person (double occupancy, inside room) and $6,900 (veranda complete with bench rest), you'll relax like never before.

    That's because you are welcome to bring your own arsenal with you. If you don't have your own weapons, you can rent them from our onboard Master Gunsmith. Enjoy reloading parties every afternoon with skeet and marksmanship competitions every night!

    But the best fun of all, of course, is Pirate Target Practice.

    For the object of the cruise is to sail up and down the Somali Coast waiting to get hijacked by pirates. The weapons rental costs are as follows.

    Rent a full auto M-16 for only $25/day with ammo attractively priced at $16 per 100 rounds of 5.56 armor-piercing:

    On a budget? Rent a full-auto scope-mounted AK-47 for only $9/day with 7.62 ball ammo at $12 per 100 rounds:

    Hello! Nothing gets a pirate's attention like a Barrett M-107 .50-cal sniper rifle; only $59/day with 25 rounds of armor-piercing ammo affordably priced at only $29.95.

    Need a spotter? Our professional crew members can double as spotters for only $30/hour (spotting scope included, but gratuities are not.)

    Want to make a real impact? Rent an RPG for only $175/day with three fragmentation rounds included!

    Also included: Free complimentary night vision equipment - and throughout the night, coffee, pastries and snacks are always available on the main deck from 7pm until 6am.

    Our deluxe package comes complete with gourmet meals and all rooms offer a mini-bar.

    But that's not all! Twin mounted miniguns are available for rental at only $450.00 per 30 seconds of sustained fire!

    We guarantee that you will experience at least two hijacking attempts by pirates or you'll receive an instant $1,000 refund upon arrival in Mombassa.

    How can we make that guarantee? We operate at 5 knots just beyond 12 nautical miles off the coast of Somalia, thus in international waters where pirates have no rights whatever. In fact, we make three passes through the area's most treacherous waters to ensure maximum visibility by Somali "mother ships".

    We repeat this for five days, making three complete passes past the entire Somali Coast. At night, the boat is fully lit and bottle rockets are shot every five minutes with loud disco music directionally beamed shoreside to attract maximum attention.

    Testimonials from previous participants in the Somali Cruise:

    "Six attacks in 4 days were more than I expected. I bagged three pirates, my wife nailed two, and my 12-year old son sank two boats with the mini-gun. This wonderful cruise was fun for the whole family" -- Fred D., Cincinnati, OH

    "Pirates 0, Passengers 32! Well worth the trip! Can't recommend it highly enough!" -- Ben L., Bethesda, MD

    "I haven't had this much fun since flying choppers in 'Nam. Don't worry about getting shot by pirates... they never even got close to the ship with the crap they shoot and their lousy aim... reminds me of a drunken juicer door-gunner we picked up from the motor pool in Phu Bai!" -- Dan J. - Denver, CO

    Come on board and bag your own clutch of genuine Somali pirates! But cabin space is limited so you need to respond quickly. Reserve your package before May 31st and get a great bonus - 100 rounds of free tracer ammo in the caliber of your choice. So sign up for the Ultimate Somali Coast Adventure Cruise now!

    Actually, I have activated a new email account so the cruisers can send me pics from their cell phones, and I'll post them while they're there!

    The problem with using the cell phones or a laptop is $$$, it's VERY expensive to access the internet on a ship. like a buck fifty a minute.
    The ship does have an internet cafe, not sure about the charges on that.

    I read a story about a guy that logged onto his laptop while still in Miami to watch some football game before the ship took off. Seems he forgot to log off when they departed and just a few minutes later he was being charged the "out at sea" rate. His final bill was over $10,000. I guess he left it logged on for the whole cruise.

    I always thought vacations were for "getting away from it all".. I don't take a computer on vacation. I don't take a cell phone either. Hubby has one. I don't want to be found.

    I like coming back and going through the regular mail as well as e-mails.

    My computer use will be at a bare minimum if any at all while on the trip.
