One problem with cruises is that the first day they tell you that if you are a guy you are the last on the list for the life boats.

Another problem is the last day they have you put your luggage in front of your berth so anyone can put their drugs in your luggage.

Did you forget to lock your luggage before you set it out?

None of that has ever happened to me. Of course I take my own boat and I am the captain.

How many people can afford luggage that accepts more than a 5 cent lock?

Shop for luggage that will take real locks...you won't find them at most stores. Maybe Numerous Markups but I bet it is still special order. Oh and I didn't get busted for anything, I just imagined the possibilities when they told us to leave our luggage in the hallway and we will meet it again when we and it goes thru customs. (on airplanes they ask if anyone has had access to your luggage, take it from you, and keep it on camera the whole way. I feel comfortable with that.)

Surprisingly, women passengers and women staff actually had higher survival rates on the Titanic than children. 3rd class kids were really ****ed...over
They still do that, it IS part of maritime law....but the Italian captain broke another rule specific to commanding staff, so he sits in jail waiting trial

Besides the boat sinking, I've heard that a major problem with cruises is that one eats way too much!!

I would be checking the air circulation systems to ensure that the air is filtered to weed out viruses etc. - one does NOT want to return from a vacation with a bad cold or flu, much less something like legionaire's disease!!

I take cruises all the time and have never been told that I get on the lifeboat last but,,, thats just the way it is supposed to be,, women and kids first. As far as the luggage issue there is a simple solution. You do not have to put your luggage out as long as you can take it yourself,,, and if you take it yourself you can get off the boat at first call,, not wait until your floor or color is called. If you have a flight waiting you can get off an hour earlier than waiting for them to call your color. They dont tell you this, this is learned from experience. As far as the drugs stowed in clients bags,, in many cruises I have never heard of this happening. The biggest problem for me is eating too much. In about 25 cruises I have made myself sick in the tummy 3 or 4 times,,,, not much fun when there is so much to do. I usually go on the singles cruises which are better in that you are with a group of singles instead of being alone. Going all alone and not knowing anyone exept the folks they sit you with at the table can be very lonesome even on a ship of 2-3000 other folks unless you are a social butterfly. KF

I like your attitude, redfish78. If you go with the flow and join in on the rec stuff, you'll have fun! It's nice not having to worry about transportation, just be aware that some of the cruise lines are paid to direct you to certain places that you might not enjoy (restaurants and bars). Be your own captain when you can.

On Carnival ships you can bring in one unopened bottle of liquor or wine in your luggage.
You can also buy one bottle and bring it on at any port of call.

NO ONE jacks with your luggage while on a cruise.
That's daft.
If the staff has drugs.....why waste em on you?
And if other passengers has smuggled some on board,
they don't need to put it in your luggage...as they already got it on board.

The only problem I have with cruises
is I can only take one a year.

Anybody ever tried a Freighter cruise ? I researched it and it sounds very interessting, cheaper and different than your usual cruise lines,.. I plan on going on one of those some day,...a long one 30 days or more which involves crossing the ocean.
