Default Re: embarkation

Marc and Richard,

Thanks for your comments, and pardon my stumble into the semantics trap (what's small, etc.) I think with the huge vessels that are being built today the meaning of the size adjectives has changed greatly in the past 10 years or so. Carnival's Fantasy class ships (70K GT, 855' length, 2000 pax) looked real big not long ago. Now CCL is bringing in ships with capacities of nearly 3000, and RCCI's new ships are carrying over 3100 pax. What next?

Jack
