I just had to post this here..anyone want to Cruise off Somalia?

Yes, yes...some of you may have seen this, don't care...still funny.

I found a Somali cruise package that departs from Sawakin (in the
Sudan ) and docks at Bagamoya (in Tanzania ). The cost is a bit high @
US$800 per person double occupancy but I didn't find that offensive.
What I found enticing is that the cruise company is encouraging
people to bring their 'High powered weapons' along on the cruise. If
you don't have weapons you can rent them right there on the boat.
They claim to have a master gunsmith on board and will have reloading
parties every afternoon. The cruise lasts from 4-8 days and nights
and costs a maximum of $3200 per person double occupancy (4 days).
All the boat does is sail up and down the coast of Somalia waiting to
get hijacked by pirates. Here are some of the costs and claims
associated with the package.

$800.00 US/per day double occupancy (4 day max billing)

M-16 full auto rental $ 25.00/day ammo at 100 rounds of 5.56 armor
piercing ammo at 15.95

Ak-47 riffle @ No charge. ammo at 100 rounds of 7.62 com block ball
ammo at 14.95

Barrett M-107 50 cal sniper rifle rental 55.00/day ammo at 25 rounds
50 cal armor piercing at 9.95

Crew members can double as spotters for 30..00 per hour (spotting
scope included).

They even offer RPG's at 75 bucks and 200 dollars for 3 standard

"Everyone gets use of free complimentary night vision equipment and
coffee and snacks on the top deck from 7pm-6am."

Meals are not included but seem reasonable.

Most cruises offer a mini-bar... these gung ho entrepreneurs offer...get

"MOUNTED MINIGUN AVAILABLE @ 450.00 per 30 seconds of sustained fire"

They advertise group rates and corporate discounts......and even

They even offer a partial money back if not satisfied....here's some
text from the ad.

"We guarantee that you will experience at least two hijacking
attempts by pirates or we will refund back half your money including
gun rental charges and any unused ammo (mini gun charges not
included).. How can we guarantee you will experience a hijacking? We
operate at 5 knots within 12 miles of the coast of Somalia . If an
attempted Hijacking does not occur we will turn the boat around and
cruise by at 4 knots. We will repeat this for up to 8 days making
three passes a day along the entire length of Somalia . At night the
boat is fully lit and bottle rockets are shot off at intervals and
loud disco music beamed shore side to attract attention. Cabin space
is limited so respond quickly. Reserve your package before April 29
and get 100 rounds of free tracer ammo in the caliber of your

As if all that isn't enough to whet your appetite, there were a few

"Six attacks in 4 days was more than I expected. I bagged three
pirates and my 12 yr old son sank two rowboats with the minigun.
PIRATES 0 -PASSENGERS-32! Well worth the trip. Just make sure your
spotter speaks English"

worry about getting shot by pirates as they never even got close to
the ship with those weapons they use and their shitty aim--reminds me

back in Nam "

A new version of the DFWStangs Spring Cruise?

Dammit but that sounds like a hell of a lot of fun! I can hear it now: "Hold it boys, let 'em in a little closer. Hold it... Hold it.... NOW!"
