I've been on a cruise twice. Once was a tour of shopping malls in the Caribbean. What a colossal waste of time and money. My wife and I also did an Alaska cruise. The cruise ship was the only way to get to some of those places. Maybe we'll do Norwegian fjords, but otherwise I have no interest. If we do Norway, I'll look for a smaller ship and a shorter cruise. 10 days of overeating is too much. The other thing with the Alaska cruise was that the ship was laid out so you couldn't get from place to place except through the casino, the hall of the multiply addicted. Hundreds of seniors with a drink in one hand and a smoke between their lips leaving one hand free for the slots. My wife and I lived on deck or on our veranda.
