    I used to think the same. My idea of fun was backpacking or skiing. But then I went on a cruise. So much to enjoy.

    Sailing out of Barcelona or Miami is a pretty special thing.

    to each his own I guess

      It's something I never would have done ordinarily, but it was the easiest way for us to take my nearly housebound mother on a vacation.  

      Despite the difficulties of handling someone with a disability, it worked out well. Royal Caribbean staff were quite kind.

      Even after this incident, I might still do it again.
