Thanks to everyone for participating. We had so many clever submissions, it was a tough choice.
We recently snapped this shot of MSC CruisesDivina, there on the left, and Silversea CruisesSilver Wind and thought, “You know, our readers could have some fun writing captions for this pic.”
So our Monday morning gift to you is a caption contest. Come up with your most creative and witty caption, and post it in the comments section below. Limit your entry to one caption. You have until noon Friday (November 9) to wow us. We’ll pick our favorite and contact the winner, who will receive a Cruise Critic gift pack for his or her cleverness.
