It's not about whose list is bigger (I don't publicize the details of it here or anywhere else). And the cruises are just a small part of a list of our travels that I've maintained since 1969, the...

I wonder whether the cruise lines prioritize their "last-minute-freebie" call list according to previous onboard spend. It would be logical to call the gamblers and drinkers first.

Of course it's...
