But do you love the ocean THIS much?

Eternal Cruises is offering you a chance to ride the "voyage to infinity". Perhaps you love the ocean soooo much that you wish you could ride the waves forever. You've thought about having your ashes sprinkled in the Atlantic but there's so much pollution and you'd really rather not ride along with empty water bottles and fish poop. Well, now you can book a cruise with Eternal Cruises. Once you're dead of course.

Your ashes will be placed in a lovingly appointed container and for a one-time fee of $50,000 that container will ride on ships destined to visit various exotic ports around the world. And you won't be alone. You'll visit the ports with nearly a 100,000 other ash bundles.

You may not have had the opportunity to travel much while you were alive but isn't it nice to know your ashes could see the world once you're gone?

This is just one of those little gems I stumbled across while researching death and cremation for a scene I'm writing. Have you heard of any unique locations for the ashes of the dearly departed?

good lord...what other ways can people come up with to rip off others! At least that one is creative.

BTW Wendy - my BIL is a huge reader and has just discovered your books. You've got a MAJOR fan!

Cyndi, give your BIL a big smooch from me!
