Mega Cruise Ships: "Too Big to Sail?"

That's the question raised by a number of experts in an Oct. 27 article in the N.Y. Times, which pointed out that the largest of today's cruise ships are the size of the biggest aircraft carriers and carry over 8000 passengers and crew. The big concerns are how easily large ships have been crippled by small problems, and how practical it is to evacuate that many passengers. Click HERE for full story.

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations

I'm not that much of a cruise ship guy, although when you want to just visit and catch up with people, they're very convenient (no cooking, no driving, comfortable room cleaned daily, etc -- just time to talk and visit with friends and family).  But it takes forever to get people off with cruise ships that have 1500 or 2000 people on them.  Can't imagine how long it takes to get everyone on board into a port when you've so many more.  Plus now these safety factor risks.  Nope, no megacruise ships in my future travel plans.  

 

Thanks for the post, PHeymont.
