Cruise ships are already, basically, floating resorts--somewhat similar to the family camp shown in "Dirty Dancing." Perhaps a better analogy is an amusement park ride with a range of amenities. You simply spend the ride getting on and off the same ride over and over again, eventually getting off where you started. After all, we cruise for the same reason that some folks go to amusement parks--thrills.
I think the larger ship trend will lead to more and more of those mobile condominium type residences like the one currently being planned (I can't think of the name of it.) The future may even see timeshare condomarines (if there's no such word, consider it coined). At that point , ships will be too big. Until then, let's just watch, cruise and enjoy.
