I dont feel there should be any restrictions on anyone that wants to take a cruise.Just because you get up in age or are over weight you should still be able to take a cruise. I just feel that there are a few questions that need to be adressed. And I am afriad it will take another accident and loss of life before they are addresed. I also find it hard to believe someone cant come up with a system for launching life boats when the ship is listing! Maybe it all comes down to the almighty dollar
