Sure, there are always people who are doing OK. But if the OP's stats are correct, only 17% of the population has ever gone to sea. Frequent cruisers are obviously an even lower percentage. Ships are full because cruise lines generally do a good job of understanding the size of the potential market and operating accordingly.
There is no necessary connection between the desire to lead and the ability to lead, and even less the ability to lead somewhere that will be to the advantage of the led. --Bergen Evans
