Now you might be onto something there. What a great way to lower costs! Every ablebodied resident would have to volunteer as a condition of their passage. They could do all sorts of things ... and their efforts would go to keep the number of hired staff down ... and thus the cruise fares lower. Each passenger would only have to volunteer a few hours a week, but the work they do would go a long way in making the experience better for their fellow passengers, as well as allowing the volunteers to still feel vital and useful.

I like that idea a lot ... a whole lot.

Blue skies ...
