  1. Dan moesten we er maar weer eens op vakantie gaan:

    Welcome to Somali Cruises

    It’s like a safari, only better

    “Safari” is the Swahili word for adventure and that’s just what we have in store for you.

    We sail up and down the coast of Somalia waiting to get hijacked by pirates. We encourage you to bring your ‘High powered weapons’ along on the cruise. If you don’t have weapons of your own, you can rent them on the boat.
