Anyone want to go on a cruise?
Anyone had any cruise ship disasters? My aunt and uncle got stranded on one a couple of years ago off of Europe. They had a nightmarish experience (stranded a couple of days) but nothing like the one that's stranded in the Gulf. My uncle is mid 70's with back and heart issues, so it was a very bad experience for him. After the ship capsizing in Italy and stories of ships getting stranded, I don't think I want to set foot on one again. I've gone on some one day cruises from West Palm Beach (the kind that go into international waters and then open the casinos). I was on one of those once when we got into very rough seas. There were quite a few people getting sick. Luckily, I've never had sea sickness, I have a pretty good stomach for turbulence.
I'm not sure why they just couldn't have sent another ship out and transferred the passengers. I'm just glad I'm not on it. Last I heard it's headed to Mobile but it's still going to take a while.
