Welcome to another Manic Monday with Morgen. Don't forget to cruise by MM HQ at the Manic Monday blog.
The HMS Bounty replica above is dedicated to preserving the fine art of square-rigged sailing. Known for a maritime mutiny that took place over 200 years ago, the name of the ship remains famous and infamous. Thousands cross her ample decks during port visits wondering what life was like then and now. You know her from her modern movies as well. In 1960, it was Marlon Brando as Fletcher Christian in Mutiny on the Bounty. Today, it is Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Man's Chest. This beautiful ship is both a movie star and a passport to adventure.
To read the story of the original Bounty, Captain Bligh, and the mutiny led by Fletcher Christian, you can visit Tall Ship History. One surprise in store for you in the short history above or here is that although Bligh has been portrayed in films as some sort of monster, he may have been one of the greatest seamen and scientists to ever command a sailing ship.
To follow in his footsteps, book an adventure cruise on the HMS Bounty replica by going to passages. Whether is it just for a day or for a full cruise to the mutineers' destination of Pitcairn Island, The Bounty will carry you to the magic and majesty of the sea.
