I agree with you TM...Finally my friends booked a first time cruise on Explorer and just cancelled it other day instead they booked Punta Cana all inclusive....and put this Facebook status up....."since people are getting sick on cruises, ships are not making their scheduled stops and being stuck on a ship with no power we decided to cancel our cruise and go to Punta Cana instead....can't wait"
But to each his/her own...people have to spend their hard earned dollar on a vacation spot they feel comfortable with by ship or land.
Hopefully no more issues on any ships so this could die down....
And those of us that love cruising will continue to do so!!
