Coach_J: My experience is that people either "love, love, really love cruises" or they are "hated it...rather go on a regular vacation".
Rapmaster2000: pudding7: Rapmaster2000: "The promise [of cruise-ship advertising] is not that you can experience great pleasure but that you will. They'll make certain of it. They'll micromanage every iota of every pleasure-option so that not even the dreadful corrosive action of your adult consciousness and agency and dread can fark up your fun. Your troublesome capacities for choice, error, regret, dissatisfaction, and despair will be removed from the equation. You will be able--finally, for once--to relax, the ads promise, because you will have no choice."Or, as my dad said when we all wnet on a cruise last year, "this is great. I don't give a shiat about anything!"Pretty much. I was always one of those "I don't get cruises" people until a few people I know (that are pretty hard drivers in life) told me the appeal for them was that everything was decided and taken care of. There are no decisions to make.I can see the appeal, but I'll pass.
