NOT a fan of being on the water as I get seasick! 🙄

 

But the BIGGER the ship and an INNER cabin does DECREASE my misery. 👍

 

Luv the WEEKEND set ups = gone a few days and back home. 💃

Hey Nicole,

 

Being an AARP member myself, I had already read this AARP article.

 

I don't think I'll ever go on a cruise.

 

Most cruise lines are packing people on ships like they are sardines.

 

The newest ship out has over 8,000 people on it.

 

My daughter worked on a ship. It was one of the few ships sailing under an American flag thus U.S. labor laws apply. Most ships sail under foreign country flags and the treatment that employees receive on those ships almost qualifies as slavery.

 

Many ships have rampant norovirus outbreaks with vomiting and diarrhea being a prevalent symptom because people come onto the ship already sick.

 

A waste of money, in my opinion.

(2/26/24) @nctarheel , I often read about Retirees "living" on a ship - sold everything. Nope, luv being on land. Also seems MORE passengers are "missing" these days. And yes, sick folks infecting others. 😎
