Makes me furious that the cruiselines promote no cultural knowledge or history of the ports we visit. I mean talk about ignorant travel. Some people learn NOTHING about the destination they are going to except where the best stores are???????
It is a good idea to do your research of the destinations beforehand but many people are not even interested in the culture. It is amazing how many people go for the shopping. To each his own. I do wish I had bought a tanzanite years ago when they were cheap.

Ultimately, the only power to which a man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.
