I think it was in Barbados that I told Jane of my idea of starting my own business called, “Kevin Moore’s
Adventure Vacations”. We had known each other a full week! Jane and I met while she was an entertainer
on the RCCL’s Sun Viking. I was what they called a Port Lecturer. In reality, I was a diver and had
just left Norwegian Cruise Lines to try my hand at this Port Lecturer. It paid a lot more, was a
different set of cruise ships, and after a few years of the diving work onboard NCL ships I was due
for a change. Basically, the Port Lecturer (think shopping network) and then go collect money from
the vendors based on the sales. I’d never tried the port lecturer stuff but I thought it would be
fun. Jane was the first person I ran into on the ship. I asked her where the Cruise Director’s office
was and basically what I was supposed to doing….hmmm? This all occurred as the Sun Viking was leaving
the Port of Miami and sailing out of Government Cut.
We talked through the week (there is drama - girls / guys, haircuts, late night meetings, and all kind of stuff we would
be glad to share with you but best if it is over some wine on the LadyJane) and we did find the time
to sneak off to a great beach and spend the day on Barbados. Kevin Moore’s Adventure Vacation was
based on my extensive experience (24 years old, kicked out of college, basically highly accomplished
at surfing, diving, and playing on the beach) as a SCUBA Instructor, Licensed Captain, Pilot’s License,
Emergency Medical Technician, AND I could cook. My plan was to get a plane (I wanted a DUCK), my
own boat that could take 6 passengers, link up with a hotel, and provide full service to special
clients. It was going to be awesome! You know what I learned? Boats, planes, dive gear, require MONEY!
Also, it should be noted, banks require collateral or experience or something I clearly didn’t have.
When I told Jane the plan she looked at me and said, “you’d be perfect at that and we should do it”.
Yeah, Jane who already had her degree (Computer Information Systems), daughter of a Naval Academy Graduate,
and a triplet. Man can she sing. We now had the entertainment for the beach lobster cookouts! A lot
more to the story – planes, trains, and visits all around the USA (from KY to Hawaii) before we got
married. Our kids, pets, boats, living in NC, KY, and FL. Our first businesses of Sea Scuba, then
MPI, on through an amazing set of businesses to finally the TiER1 set of companies, and 5 more college
degrees. Pretty cool times for sure.
Fast forward from the Sun Viking (it really seems like a blur) to sailing the LadyJane for the first time from Ft Lauderdale
to Miami for the Miami Boat Show in 2017. I was at the helm as we headed in through Government Cut
around 4:00 PM. We were passing an RCCL cruise ship leaving Miami, Jane sitting by my side at the
helm, “where do you think I should go” I asked her....It wasn’t lost on either of us that it was
exactly the same question, in about the same place, I asked her 30 years earlier. Like before she
said, “Let’s figure it out”.
You should join us, it will be FUN!

The LadyJane arrived at the Port Everglades on January 12th aboard a vessel named ROSAIRE A.DESGAGNES that was flying the
Barbados flag…if you’ve already read the story about us, you know Barbados will always hold special
memories for us!
