Ron, I hope that comment wasn't directed towards what I said. My husband is in a profession where outrageous lawsuits are common and no one hates an ambulance chaser more than we do. We were victims ourselves of a frivolous lawsuit (which we won by the way thank heavens) .
From what I have read those that are sick are often placed on a very strict diet that limits their food intake (i.e. they live off of soup for several days). Now they are paying for meals they don't get to enjoy. I was just wondering how cruise lines handle the situation.
