The delightful lecturer on things nautical, John Maxtone Graham, has always said that there is an entirely different vibe among the passengers and crew on ships that are "going somewhere" (especially crossings and cruises to places most of the passengers haven't been) than on ships that are "just floating around," plying the same well-worn waters to the same cookie-cutter islands.
The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place. -- George Bernard Shaw
