My travel agent thinks the media generally is negative in its cruise reporting. He cited a case of cruise ship passengers getting swine flu during their shore excursion and noted that had nothing to do with the fact they were on a cruise because they got it in port. A number of veteran cruisers agreed the media generally paints an ugly picture that is not deserved when they hear the term "cruise ship."

But can you blame the media for wanting to say something bad about cruising? A lot of people are more interested in Carnival's PR headaches (dropped stocks, fewer sales, a pending lawsuit, etc.) than Costa's newest Concordia class ship currently being built.

Looking forward to cruising!
