How say we to Wal-Mart furniture? Noticed how more and more plastic furniture is being introduced to the cruise industry replacing the traditional teak? It's getting so that now, in some areas, being aboard is like sitting on a trailer patio. Even the chez lounge is now the moulded flip trap that we wouldn't have at home. Feather weight balcony furniture blowing about during the night. It's unquestionably cheaper, and cheap is the word, but in the long run the joys of cruising will become MacDonald like and that is something we can do without.
