Thats the last place anyone who appreciates their life should be. But we know theres plenty who dont even care about their own lives sooo lol Nice job CNN of Continuing 'THE BIG LIE' about Covid.. WHY arent you reporting about the 80,000 people sitting next to each other at football games across the country every weekend WITH NO ILL EFFECTS (Chanting, 'Let's Go Brandon!)

No Thanks, to any cruise! Tried it once, that was enough. Why are we having arguments about the wealthy paying more in taxes? How many Americans spend $100-200k on a 9 mth. vacation? Whats wrong with marketing it.. as long as all precautions are adhered to Listen, I've enjoyed a couple cruises, but I'm *always* happy to leave after 5-9 days. 9 months sounds like very, very expensive torture. But if the uber wealthy want to remove themselves for a bit and get TF away from the rest of us, go for it, we won't miss you.

9 months stuck on a ship with the same people. I think I'd rather isolation African people UNite against Western domination.

🍀 People don't realize. Cruises aren't inclusive. Everyday you spend. On specialty restaurants, excursions, at the casino, at the bar and at the spa. Its fun but pricey. I can't imagine how much you would spend after 9 months. 9 months? I see all sorts of issues with this event or plan. Is this for retired folks or rush people and if the folks are rich why would the do this. 9 months on a ship

My Lyft driver last week told me his brother-in-law recently went on a cruise where all passengers had to be vaccinated to board. His brother-in-law walked off the cruise ship ill and tested positive. He was still in hospital last week after being admitted weeks earlier. I've heard this tale before...

It comes with your choice of burial at sea or $500 in casino credits.
