Exactly Mike! I'm sure an hour long piece on the true joys of cruising would not be "titillating" enough. But I'm sure there would be many people who would enjoy it, including some who have never cruised before. it's a terrible shame that the overall impression of many will now be what they saw on 20/20 rather than the truth.

They definitely focused on the negative. They did say that the incidents were rare but it was quickly passed over.
Not a great piece of investigative journalism. More sensationalism than journalism.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
