    I suspect the story in the news this morning about 300 sick on a ship won't help. I know the experience is positive for most people but there are more and more problems cropping up on these things; I don't know if that's why but I've never had an urge to cruise. I think it's because not only your accommodation but safety, wellbeing and transportation are provided by a self contained, complex group of mechanical systems and administrative policies all deliberately regulated by nations with very lax legislation in these areas, in order to maximize profit, and reduce or eliminate liability to operators. You're almost a prisoner on a cruise ship, in a legal sense. But, a lot of people like it and enjoy it, so if that's what floats your boat, enjoy.
