Which, of course, are geared towards union labor and overweening government nanniness which drive up the costs to the point that most of these people wouldn't be taking a cruise. There's a reason there aren't any lines with American-crewed ships.
There are some good ones, though. Holland-America and Cunard aren't bad, for example.
I remember my sister's first cruise in the eighties. She was so looking forward to it. It was Carnival. She's a foodie -- described it as a giant Shoney's with an ocean view.

True, and I don’t like unions any more than you do. That said, the cruise ships evidently look at cost cutting over safety. I can’t imagine one of our Navy vessels being run like most of the cruise ships today. You’ve even got Captain Mario Hotpants, scheming on a woman while his ship is sinking over in Italy.
