AR, I was being sarcastic about where laws come from. Lighten up, I know how they are formed. Heck, I took plenty of law courses in collage and did pretty well in grades too I might add. <G> The remark was supposed to indicate that the cruiseline can't use the excuse that it's a law if it really isn't. The computer and Internet is a great instrument no doubt but just because we have one and know how to use them, many do not. You will never see a law that says you must pre-register online, that is not possible as it eliminates some people from participating simply because they do not have, or cannot afford a computer. They may have to someday require one to submit more info to the cruiseline prior to boarding and that I can see coming shortly.
