Bermuda Triangle SMH....

Recommended Posts

My first cruise is not until Jan, 2020 but I've been telling all my friends and family about how excited I was.

I don't know if all can relate to this but I've got this one weird/crazy uncle (I feel like everyone has at least 1 haha) and he says " you should be careful and check to see if the cruise will be passing the bermuda triangle since you're sailing out of florida towards it. It's a uncessary risk, lots of boats and planes goes missing without a trace"

Given the fact I know hes weird/crazy I tried to look at the logical standpoint and tell him im sure there's a perfectly good explanation for all the missing vessels and aircraft, we just haven't found it.

And I know for a fact commercial airlines fly through there all the time and made it back safely, airlines are not going to actively make a huge reroute or detour based off superstitions.

What are your thoughts and does sailing through the bermuda triangle raise any questions or concerns for you?

Better yet who has had a sailing itinerary  that ran through the bermuda triangle and made it back haha

Guess I've done it dozen of times and survived.  I think most of the "disappearances" could be chalked up to weather and mechanical issues.  I guess you could tell him your going and hope you don't get abducted by aliens.

Yeah, but I doubt if very many ships actually sail through the middle of that triangle!  That's where the alien base is.  👽 🤪

Seriously, I've been through there many times and have never seen or heard of any problems.

Aliens???? I always thought it was the Loch Ness Monster sinking the ships while on a Caribbean vacation 

I thought, it is the Kraken that sink the ship LOL 🤣

Most cruise that goes to Caribbean will be in the Bermuda Triangle.

When I was younger, I just figured that in the early days of travel, there were some magnetic anomalies that caused navigation errors in vessels/planes that relied solely on compasses.  I've been in places in northwestern Maine where compasses do not point north.

I never put much thought into it other than that, but the whole volume thing makes sense.

 

Edit: I'm not talking about magnetic declination, rather places where compasses are off by 90+ degrees.

You could always not accept the risk and  just stay at home....but a meteor might crash through your roof and there ya go.....😉
