I love cruises. I mean I REALLY love cruises. I've been on 6 of them and loved every minute of every one. I love the fact that you have a room but end up somewhere new every day. I love sitting on the balcony watching the ocean go by, drinking coffee in the morning.
The food is soooooooo good. You can eat 24 hours a day for 7 days. Room service is free if you decide at 2 am (ok, I'm never awake at 2 am on a cruise or anywhere else) that you're hungry. If you want 3 lobster tails instead of 1 for dinner, it's yours. Generally, most cruise ships have a "chocolate extravaganza" once during the trip. Chocolate desserts of every kind you can imagine.
The last cruise we went on even had artists from the Corning Museum who did 3 shows a day on glass blowing. I went to at least one show a day and sometimes all three. There are wonderful Broadway-type shows, Bingo games every day, and the casino. Looooove the casino!
So, why am I telling you all of this? Well, I'm sure you've heard about the Carnival cruise ship that has been sitting "dead in the water" for the last several days. Families were shown, looking forlorn, standing on the edge of the ocean, gazing out to sea, hoping their family members aboard the ship would make it home safe.
Whaaa, Whaaa. What the hell???? These people are on a cruise ship for crying out loud! If I'm going to be "stuck" somewhere - I certainly wouldn't feel too bad if it was on a cruise ship. Then I found out...
those poor bastards are being fed spam and poptarts. Now that's just not right. AND, they have no electricity which means - no casino, no coffee. Now that's just crap.
GET THOSE POOR PEOPLE HOME NOW!
