In my ever evolving check list of things to take / not take with me on my cruise ship speaking gig one thing I NEVER forget is my Kindle reader.
I always take my Kindle with me ON cruise ship lecture gigs.
It struct me as somewhat ironic that the owner of the Kindle, Jeff Bezos, was taken OFF a cruise ship.
Speaking of evolving, he was in the Galapagos Islands when he had to be emergency evacuated. Reason: Kidney stone removal.
What a way to spend the first day of the New Year, eh?
I was on a cruise ship at the time in the Gulf of Mexico, on my way back from Cozumel.
Celebrity invited me to speak on Social Media. My wife, daughter and in-laws were along for the ride.
Bezos is worth $25+ billion. Which begs the question, “Why doesn’t he buy his own cruise ship?” He could fly people on and off the ships with those little pilotless copters he is thinking of. Or maybe he could have captain-less ships.
He was helicoptered to Santa Cruz port, took a short flight to Baltra Island where he got on his private jet which was waiting to take the 49-year old to the US for treatment. Now we see the $25 billion.
Who said cruising couldn’t be exciting, eh?
How about you? Want to speak on a cruise ship? Maybe Bezos will be in the audience. Maybe you know emergency evacuation procedures. That’d be a great topic.
