What mindless idiot gets in a rabbit hutch and thinks its a vacation because he can eat ?
I find that these boats are too big to be getaways. More of a theme park on water.....over crowded and bogus.
How stable are these ships? I look at their elevated superstructure and wonder.
Floating Diarrhea outbreak waiting to happen...
Taking a cruise is on my bucket list. Have no idea if I’d love it or hate it, I have friends that absolutely love cruise ships and take one or two a year and friends that have tried it once and absolutely hated every moment.
Wonderful for the company. Horrible for the passenger.
5500 people using the head at once with stomach virus...
Hold 3,000 more!? It’s just a more densely packed floating bug farm. Euw.
The only cruise I would do now is a Danube Cruise.
“All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by”
And a buffet....a good buffet.....not some cheap one with lots of bread.....
Every time somebody tells me that they’re going on a cruise I tell them that it would be fun to get a group of people together on the ship to start a pool on which young newlywed woman isn’t going to be there at the end of the cruise.
A few (admittedly warped) observations.
The Yamato was 863 feet long and 128 feet wide. Seems small in comparison. The food probably wasn’t as good either.
I always wonder how many torpedoes it would take for a U-boat to sink a cruise ship? Or could a modern cruise ship survive a collision with an iceberg?
I always think of cruise ships as very expensive floating nursing homes.
Let's start a new meme that these super-sized cruise ships will displace so much water that they are more of a threat to flooding coastal cities than global warming!!!
They might actually cause Guam to tip over!
Think anyone will buy it?
Just don’t start calling it “unsinkable” ...
So I stroll on up to the Promenade Deck, and what do I see but a hockey game going on!
I run back to the cabin and get my stick because you never know when you might come across a hockey game.
I run back to the game and join in and this goon on the other team starts running her mouth at me, so I give her a little slash. You know, nothing big just probably less than a hundred stitches so I say it’s a minor and not a major.
Well, the Captain comes and accuses me of beating up little old ladies and I told him , “Hey! She shouldn’t have got in the game if she wasn’t ready to play with the big boys.”
Then he tells me it’s some game called Shuffleboard or something.
Must be one of those Bahamian games like cricket.
So they march me down to the brig and toss me in there and let me tell you, “Resort Style Accomodations” evidently don’t apply to the brig.
The Captain comes and tells me they’re going to drop me off at the next port and that’s exactly what they did doing 25 knots as I sailed off the poop deck.
Fortunately, a fishing boat picked me up.
That was my lucky stick, too.
I have had a lot of experience at sea in sailboats trawlers and motor vessels of some tonnage
We used to see cruise ships on the horizon lit up like cities
We’d be tossed around wet and cold doing cockpit duty and think about how warm they were up there
And the food
I know people who live cruises
Older folks who like the easy touring and younger couples that enjoy booze
And I guess family cruises too
But I’ve never ever had a desire
I might have enjoyed an old Cunard run to Portsmouth
A dress for dinner sort of thing
