I completely agree with you. I love to cruise and will continue to do so but I believe that people become too complacent and take everything for granted and forget that they are on a ship and are at the mercy of the sea and the decisions of the Captain and crew.

Often we become more cruise cheerleaders than cruise realists and advocate all the good things about cruising and don't mention or think about the realities.
