Probably your chances of having disaster strike while driving on the freeway or even within one mile of home (which is where most accidents occur) is far, far greater than your chance of being on a cruise ship that gets hijacked.
Just be prudent and vigilant. If something doesn’t feel right to you, listen to your first instinct and get out of there or go for help. Remember, the captain and crew want to get home again, too, so they’ll be more alert also.
Go and have a good time.
“listen to your first instinct and get out of there ..”
Maybe this is what has me on edge the most. In both an airplane AND a ship, you can’t just get out of there! Talk about a captive audience! And these murderers know it all too well.
