Oh, that is too bad. Some will see this (like my mom) as a reason to never go on a cruise. For me, I see it as these people died doing what they loved. Better to enjoy life.

An accident can happen right at home, it has nothing to do with being on a ship as they were on land but I know what you mean, some people will look at it that way.

That is a great saying. I might have to borrow it.
