    Rebellion on the High Seas

    "USED to be, you’d be hung from the yardarm for mutiny at sea. Now, it seems, some rebellions may get you a refund.

    Evidently, that was a lesson learned in January 2006 when passengers on the Queen Mary 2 organized sit-ins and alerted the news media of their grievances by sending e-mail and making cellphone calls from the ship."

    Resistance collapsed when the captain noted that the police in Beijing would probably not be in the mood for negotiation

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    I just saw a news story about how women are MUCH more likely to be raped on a cruise ship usually by a crew member and the line will destroy evidence and
    and accuse the victim of being a drunk slut as well as dropping the crew member off first chance they get rather than deal with it because only convictions are bad press. Usually the crew member is rehired by another ship immediately even if they have been convicted. Personally I could not imagine a worse vacation if I tried
    than a normal cruise with a bunch of fat drunk baby boomer yanks.

    Did a cruise with my parents when I graduated high school. It was pretty lame. There are cruises that go around the entire world, take a good portion of a year, and stop at 20-30 different countries. Had I the money, I would do that in a heartbeat.
