My Away With Words

By Martin HigginsFriday 16th January 2015

I’m an old sea dog at heart, and it’s adventure I crave – sailing the seven seas like my ancestral fathers. And what better way to test my sea legs for the first time – than on the Oasis of the Seas. The biggest cruise ship in the world.

First, I hit the Boardwalk ready to tap-dance my way across the promenade, a throwback to that Coney Island swing of the 1920’s - filled with the sounds and the verve of a real-life seaside community.

I got lost in the theatre of it all walking through Central Park.With its lovely fragrant gardens, and living plants hanging down from the balconies. Sampling that New York state of mind.

I was challenged to a drag race soon after by two Teddy Boys in a 1930 Auburn Speedster, one of the most beautiful cars in existence. But no match for me and my trusty Robin Reliant.

I left my heart in The Globe and Atlas. With its young vivacious crowd and olde worlde elegance. A site of learning, teaching and story telling – the way good bars should be, acting as a magnet for interesting and celebrated people.

I mean, there is even a running track for heaven’s sake! Where I almost beat Linford Christie’s world record in loafers.

These little snapshots into life at sea epitomise what cruising is all about in my eyes, for its ability to be many things to many people. The total sensory overload of stepping into different eras and themed neighbourhoods is the perfect combination for escapism and fantasy.
