A Cruise Ship?.. What's Not To Like?

I’ve often thought about how much fun these pleasure cruises must be. Lots of delectable food, entertainment, gambling and some more of that delectable food. My kind of getaway. But with the recent disaster of the Costa Concordia cruise liner, maybe there’s more to think about. I saw a recent article by Stinson Carter pointing out that “when you’re on a cruise ship, you are visiting a foreign country with no embassy, no consumer watchdog agency and no real accountability of any kind other than their desire to protect you as a potential future revenue source.” In other words, things are great… until something goes wrong. For the passengers on the Costa Concordia, things went very wrong. And by the way, the ship’s captain, who is being investigated for charges including manslaughter, says he wasn’t planning to abandon ship at all. He said he tripped…. and fell into the lifeboat.
