The faculty/staff lounge was the one place on board where students could not go. It was our own slice of heaven complete with Karaoke and Margaritas. Sometimes too much of one led to the other….
The students pretty much took over every square inch of the ship and it was nice to have a place to retreat to with the grown folks. We held meetings of grand import here as well as knocked back a few to celebrate everything from birthdays to surviving a particularly eventful port with everyone alive and on board. Mostly I’ll miss the people. My friends that became like family.
