Recently, after much pleading, the kids submitted a persuasive case for doing homeschool while sailing offshore and sipping on unlimited (juice) cocktails, with a sunset view.
Truthfully, it wasn’t too difficult to convince us.
It also helped that the cruise company offered them discounted ($5!) tickets when they heard it was for education.
For several decades, the Jade Lady III has combined the best of Saipan’s tourism, fishing, entertainment and restaurant industries into a thriving and popular business. Since we have been studying “ocean-related careers on Saipan,” and since this business spans multiple fields, it was a great learning opportunity.
Besides, the views are unbeatable.
Like I said, the Jade Lady does a great business. No one leaves this sunset cruise with a frown. Nobody. We sure didn’t. And we also gained more insight into how some folks on Saipan make a pretty fun “living from the sea.”
And that, folks, is what we call homeschooling over here in the CNMI.
