Cruise News: Cruises For Dead Cruisers

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

There is now a web site where you can book the cruise that is guaranteed to be the last cruise you will ever take. How do we know? Because you will be dead. My Final Cruise specializes in spreading the cremated ashes of those who have "moved on" into the sea from cruise ships.

The site has a selection of biodegradable urns, as required by the environmental policies of the International Maritime Organization. Prices range from $149 to $324 apiece, depending on your preferred style

.

After the ashes have been dropped overboard – which must be done outside of the 12-nautical mile limit – these special urns guarantee that the ashes will be dispersed in an environmentally friendly fashion, and that none of the ashes will wash up on the shore.

The spot where your ashes will be dropped will be recorded in the site's own database of funereal sites at sea, which are marked on the web site using Google Earth. The markers include the choice of having a public obituary or simply marking the spot but keeping the details private. So far, the site has only two marked locations, one between South Carolina and Bermuda and another just north of Saint Martin. In fact, neither marker represents a real burial at sea site yet; they are merely samples. But the company hopes to be seeing lots of dead people in their world map soon.

I like the idea of biodegradable urns to make this possible for those who choose this route. But it is kinda creepy to think the spot will be tagged for all to see.

Oh, I like that idea. I've told my family to take my ashes back to Hawaii, and disperse them there, but I think this idea has moved to the top of that list.
