Quick question for Eagle alumni... I've heard a lot of different things about the Barque Eagle, in particular the Swab Summer cruise. On one hand I've heard people (AIM cadre, family, etc) say that it's a great time because you get to bond with your shipmates and get away from the Swab Summer "grind" so to speak. On the other hand, I've heard from other people (different AIM cadre, etc) that the SS cruise is just as bad as the rest of the summer. The general consensus is that 3rd class cruise is a lot better, but I was just wondering what you thought of your Swab Summer Barque Eagle cruise. Thanks!
