AR...thanks for that quote....that is so 1985, we sailed for the very first time in Europe on the Stella Oceanis departing from Athens with an overnight in Instanbul and a sunset arrival in Santorini and a very late stay in Venice..our vessel was only half full (only 3 American couples) and l always remember the electric atmosphere when everyone was on deck sailing into silence ..sailing into Venice , dramatic and jaw dropping (this was long before the megaliners)

I think when one takes the standard 7 day cruise in the Caribbean, it's a safe bet that over 1/2 the guests have been there before so there is not the excitement or the sense of adventure..they seem more concern about shopping bargins
