darch: My wife and I have traveled to many places in all our years together, both posh and... not so posh. Flying certainly sucks the big one but it's a temporary thing. We just have NEVER been able to understand why folks would embark on a cruise.

I see the words "sneeze guard" and I'm OUT.

I think you are missing the point of cruising.  You can do things you can't do on a land locked vacation like shopping in stores, going to a casino, seeing a show, choosing from several different mediocre restaurants, or going swimming, but get this....wait for it....you're on a boat!!!   And when you go back to your room...the towel....the towel on your bed....might be shaped like a monkey or an elephant!!!

Oh and all the norovirus you wish to inhale, it's free.

That was the cockroach cluster.

Wait until they try the crunchy frog.

This didn't happen when white people staffed ocean liners.

(too "right-for-the-throat-y"?)

OK I'll add that to my list of why I never want to go on a large cruise ship.

In no particular order:

1) Rapey/thievey crewmembers who never get investigated because international waters
2) Mysteriously disappearing passengers (see #1)
3) Norovirus
4) Engine failure
5) Poseidon Adventure
6) Overly macho captains who slam the boat into undersea obstacles in a misguided attempt to impress somebody
7) Trapped on the same ship with a bunch of other idiots for days on end
8) Buffet food
9) Pirates, none of whom are Johnny Depp

10) Roaches - I lived in the big city, I've been there, done that, don't want to go back.

i'm not what you would call a "learned man" by any stretch. but I know this, if there is one cockroach nymph, it's mom and 1000's of it's relatives are also booked for the cruise.

When it's time to dress up your catch, how do you like to prepare cockroach nymphs?

...Damn speed reading course...

I'm so glad I booked my Carnival cruise before all this crap started. Still going for it, though. YOLO!

I'm guessing they won't manage to stay afloat much longer.
