It was inspired by a real talk0show host on radio during the Carnival Splndor incident. I heeard him go on for an hour about how you'd never get him on one of those floating prison camps - and everything he said about why not was out-dated information...
"You're stuck on a small boat with a bunch party animals & kids..."
"You have to eat dinner who Joe the life insurance salesman every night"
"The entertainment is nothing but a bunch of losers who couldn't work anywhere else."
"They have a dress code like its an a academy school"
.... blah, blah, blah.
I just thought it sounded so 1990s.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
Paul, the only thing I didn't agree with was this: "Most cruises also deliver passengers' favorite newspapers to their room every morning."
While I'd LOVE to get my local newspaper (and would pay a reasonable fee for it), I've never seen it available . It's not a small town paper, but the only major newspaper in Arkansas (the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette).
I don't know, but I'm thinking you can only get the "big" paper's like USA Today, The New York Times, etc.. .
If you have more information I'd love to hear it !
"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour."

I have a confession - with no new ships coming out (except magic, which is a near clone of Dream - and I am not on her) I have a problem.
I am having a hard time coming up with cruise topics. I feel I have done them all!
JTOL, how about some segments on some of the unusual itineraries that cruise lines are now offering? Most folks at least know somebody who has taken a cruise to Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, or perhaps Alaska, but how many people are aware of not-so-standard offerings that one finds on repositioning cruises?
