Living very close to the Gulf of Mexico, a lot of people, myself included, would like to end up as ashes in the sea. Environmental laws prohibit that unless through special companies that are allowed to have permits. The on here is called the Neptune Society, if I remember correctly. But, cruise ships don't have crematoriums on board and are not allowed to dump anything into the ocean. Seems like we have um, gone overboard
on this, as they used to grind up leftover food and feed it to the fishies. Maybe I just don't know enough, but hard for me to see the harm in that.
