The captain is a total stranger. Suddenly her life is filled with interesting people, adventurous experiences, and fun with a capital F as her journey takes her through the magical Mediterranean, into exciting Morocco, the scenic Canary Islands, and to the exotic Caribbean! She finds her true passion; now that’s ‘finding yourself’! Who says divorce has to be the end? Sometimes it is just the beginning.
