This may sound harsh and hard, which I don't mean for it to--- but-- if someone gets so drunk that they endanger themselves by climbing about on a ships balcony--- well, lets just say I rather he / she go that way than
be out on a street or roadway where they could easily wipe out innocent people.

Remember the post I made a couple or so weeks ago about " you may be a nut if " and the last one was " you are for sure a nut if you climb about on the rails, etc "?


Reggarding the ships serving alcohol to drunks--- I agree that there should be some common sense used but how many times do you see over and over and over people talking about smuggling alchohol aboard a ship ? So John Doe smuggles a couple bottles of booze for ( as they always say ) " a couple of drinks in my cabin before dinner "-- then proceeds to a couple of bars on the ship, consumes several drinks, then goes back to the cabin and raids the fridge again. How do you stop this ?
The cruise line can control only so much. They try to discourage people from bringing booze aboard and get critized for that as people say they only do it to make money. People have to be responsible for themselves whether they are on a sidewalk or on a ship.
It will probably come to the point where ships will have no open space at all. They will be like a cocoon--- all wrapped up in plexi-glass or safety nets to keep the nuts aboard. Can't you just imagine sitting on your all glassed in balcony looking down at the large safety net extending out from the ship for about 20 feet or so ?
Better yet, maybe the cruise lines will start making submarines -- that way they don't have to worry about balconies, safety nets, etc. Just cruise along below the surface, pop up at St. Thomas for a few hours, then drop down again and off to Cozumel or Ocho--
but that would create it's own set of problems so around and around we go. Bottom line is that so many times people create the situation that leads to their own demise. When they do, it's a blessing when they don't take innocent people with them.

Well, I just came off the Conquest and I was so mad at him I wanted to kill him myself. This guy caused a couple thousand people a huge inconvenience. Maybe the cruise lines should start charging the families the cost of the search and people would think twice about being stupid.

I do know, if you go overboard at night, chances are you won't be found. That spotlight looks like a flashlight out there on the ocean.
