The Joy of being on Large Cruise Ships?

We just returned from a cruise on Carnival’s newest and largest cruise ship, the Vista. Vista is beautiful. Vista is wonderful. Vista is huge.


I was just watching the Steve Harvey Show, where he noted Royal Carribean is sailing the world’s largest cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas, in the Mediterreanean. They gave away a trip on board this ship. I was like, wow. An even larger cruise ship. 

Here’s the deal: Large cruise ships mean a large number of passengers. It does not necessarily mean a better experience. When we sailed on Liberty of the Seas a few years ago, we made note how crowded the elevators were. It’s actually part of our decision to use another cruise line regularly. Royal Carribean has beautiful ships, but there’s simply too frickin many people on board. It makes availability for events more difficult. When you go on excursions, everyone is trying to get off that ship. A thousand more people getting off the boat in a minimally increased amount of space is painful.

Bigger in the case of cruise ships is not always better.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
