Posted on 03/11/2009 10:06:07 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Discovery Cruise Lines is offering a warm welcome to Spring Breakers -- a group cruise lines and most South Florida beachfront hotels have tried to discourage for years.
"We do really well with the Spring Break crowd," spokeswoman Rene Mahfood said. "We have a beer drinking contest -- which you can imagine is very popular -- a Miss Discovery contest, a Real Man contest, karaoke. They just love to be in the sun and everybody is mixing and mingling and flirting."
Discovery has seen its Spring Break business decline during the last decade, however. To drum up passengers, it works with collegiate tour companies such as Maryland-based Student Travel Services to identify prospects for its short Bahamas voyages.

A nightmare in the making (at least for those who work in it)
My oldest son went on a 5-day Bahamas cruise for Spring break. 8 people went (him and 7 sorority sisters) to Port Canaveral.
Only 4 got to go on the boat.
They enforced a 1:1 ratio of 1 person must be over 21 for every person under 21.
4 Girls had to do “something else” for Spring Break.
My son said it wasn’t pretty.
HE and his girls had a good time though ;-)
My little princess just turned 4. I’m not going to handle her adolescence well, I can just tell.
I am getting flashbacks of my Spring Break’s in Ft. Lauderdale back in 1983/84/85.
Art Stock’s Playpen and the Playpen South, the Button, the Candy Store. Yup. :-)
Just start now, if you haven't already. Teach her that her body is a temple, not an amusement park.
1 Corinthians 6
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Gods.
Maybe if we went back to calling it Easter Vacation conduct would be less lewd.
Very sage advice. Thank you.
