If I throw a stick will you go away.

BTW.

Going on a cruise is liken to staying in a holiday camp I/e Butlins.

Loads of people spreading their germs about causing all sorts of gut aches.

Sneezing into their hands, not washing their hands after a toilet visit etc etc.

I don't suppose your going anywhere near a live military firing range. That would be nice for you.

Oh b4 I 4get.

Take plenty of knickers as you will wet many in the excitement of a cruise.

I think cruises have to have about the most hygienic restaurants going.
Where else do people stand at the doors as you walk in, squirting hand sanitiser onto your palms before you are allowed to enter?

All this topic-is bigger better-now, if it were about the size of cruise ships, it would be a topic worth debating.
From what I have heard, bigger isn't necessarily better (in ships). Read of one person who went on Oasis of the seas (6000 passengers, equal largest cruise ship in the world). The person didn't even get to see the ocean for 2 days! But.. other people love it.

That's fine but, they do not do that at every venue aboard the ship.

People will still spread their germs around.

What about the selfish people and it do happen that are ill but still go on cruise as they don't want to miss it.

This is because their insurance do not cover their immediate illness.

Coughs and sneezes and all their air bound germs follow.

in spite of all we hear about health and hygiene cruise ship passengers still go down with sickness.

Give me the South of France, Whitby and Blackpool any day.

I believe the sickness some people can get on board is probably very common on land too & you are just as likely to catch it at shopping centres or any other fairly busy venue-theatre etc.
I can tell you for a fact that things go through schools too, the kids fall like flies. Same sort of thing, I bet. You never, ever see it on the news but most schools go through at least one bad patch a year, usually in winter.

It's very visible when it happens on a ship as it is a stable population. That's why we notice it in schools too.

But you are right in that sometimes people who aren't 100% well go on board as they don't want to miss the cruise. Same thing happens in schools I can promise you. Kids routinely are sent in sick. They will tell you at 8.45am that they were vomiting that morning but mummy had to go to work and said they can just see the nurse at school. Which is not actually what a school nurse is for, she doesn't start till 10.30am in any case.
Even if parents do keep them home, they are often then taken along to shopping centres during the day to pick up groceries etc

So yes, if you are able to get away from people, into wide open empty spaces & countryside, you are less likely to catch stuff from other people.
The Australian outback would be ideal for your holiday, whip. :D

Not many people, not a germ in the world.
Not a lot of lobsters crawling about inland but you can't have everything.

I done some research on the PO Pacific Princess.

Oh deary deary me maxy lad :-"

If the cruise liner turn turtle and you land up on a desert island, don't text gnads on how to catch fish.

You will either get flooded out or starve.

Except he won't be on the Pacific Princess.
Do pay attention, Whip. :D
Gnads & I have established it is a different ship altogether.

Cruise ships do a lot of things but sinking isn't one of them. Not unless you've got a dodgy captain. And all the captains sailing in aussie waters could run rings around that Italian guy. All the captains sailing just about anywhere could.

I stand corrected.

But I will stand by my statement about asking gnads for survival tips :)

Well you see lad.

I'm in front of you all.

If I ever took a cruise I would also pack a lobster pot.

We survived very well knucklehead.

Even ate fish.

Whereas you would starve if taken off the teat for a day.
Nappies & Politicians should be changed often. Both for the same reason.
I don't have an attitude I have a personality you can't handle.
