Cruises are fine vacations as well. I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea, so I'm not going to argue against anyone that doesn't like them, I get it. Just understand that the food and booze industry in the states makes mucho $$$$ off supplying those ships in American ports where most originate from.
Those old Senior bastards can booze it up at the VFW Club like American's are supposed to do.
Travel Industry. Restaurants. Cinema. The Frivolous Economy.

I love cruises. I'd be the first one on a boat provided that masks aren't required.
I do predict we'll probably stop cruising around the age of 50 or so
Going to be blunt, but some of the dumbest people I know barely travel and when they do it’s some 3 hour car trip to an average or tourist shithole location. Travel is as important as getting educated in my opinion. Going to 2nd and 3rd world countries, even in the popular spots is eye opening.
Is that your way of telling us you're around the age of 50 or so?
Some of the dumbest people I know live in a Bubble of Privilege.
They live among Americans living in 2nd or 3rd world conditions, just miles or even blocks away from their idyllic Pleasantvilles.
I do predict we'll probably stop cruising around the age of 50 or so. I'm hoping to take up sailing over the next decade with Lake Michigan so close and being able to learn there. Then we can just bareback charter a cat or monohull down in the USVI, BVI or anywhere in the Caribbean. Wife is a nervous Nancy though, so even if I'm trained it will still be a battle to get her on board literally and figuratively.
Learn how to sail well THEN take your wife out on the fair weather days. Get her hooked on the joy and beauty of a nice day of sailing before gale force winds make things "interesting ".
B.A.C.A.H. saysIs that your way of telling us you're around the age of 50 or so? Nope. 37. Without Covid the risk/reward factor to cruising diminishes as you get older. Only a moron would think living in 10x10 rooms for a week on average is a good idea with high blood pressure, overweight, diabetic, etc.. That's why I find it strange it's popular with the older folks. Logic is a funny thing.
Unless you're living in the mountains or something, every single place in the US has running water, sewer/septic and reliable electricity.
WookieMan saysNope. 37.Good to know you have it all figured out at 37.
I'll tell the homeless lazy I see in places like creekside trails and under freeway overpasses in Silicon Valley that you said so.
Outside of the truly disabled, homelessness is a choice. Especially in high COL areas

These vagrants are lazy and deserve nothing.
My wife's not the biggest fan either.
wouldn't even wash dishes or mop the floor as a shoe-in. No telling how much he collects every day!
