Better than rum punch

I just want to inform all alcoholics that AA is alive and well on the cruise ships. We no longer need to avoid a cruise for fear of all the drinking and no meetings.

I just returned from a two-week cruise. On the first day out, I read with much happiness the following notice in the ship's daily bulletin: "Friends of Bill W. will meet in the lounge at 4:00 PM." The notice was repeated after each embarkation point.

Our first meeting was attended by ten people. Throughout the two weeks, we enjoyed friendship, good AA, and freedom from worry that we might drink.

I am told this occurs on many cruise lines, but I know it does on at least one.
