My daughter went on a cruise (Fort Lauderdale to Cozumel and another spot in MX) and said numerous people had been busted trying to smuggle liquor on board. Also, she told me a story that made so much sense but I've never been on a cruise so it was an AHA! moment for me. She said the boat was constantly rocking... during the day she said it was okay but in the evenings she said everyone was getting nauseous because the boat was moving so much. She would go into the bathroom to pee and there was a person in every stall throwing up and THIS is why bugs break out on a boat. For years I wondered why it happened this way... there are giant office buildings where people work day after day and an illness doesn't take over like it does on a cruise ship. She also said there were staff members in the bathrooms cleaning up with bleach at all times so that they could combat any breakouts. I really have no desire to take a cruise.
It’s not just the bathrooms.The Ocean is generally unpleasant as feck. Now add in 2,000 people, and a fecking swimming pool? I can tell you for a stone fact that cleaning the pool on a ship sucks donkey balls., so you can imagine how well it gets done. After my first go around on The APL President Jackson, I specifically avoided that entire class of ship, because of that fecking swimming pool. It’s literally the worst job on the ship. There are 2 ships I could work on that have pools. I’d sooner live off my wife’s income and have no insurance, than go on them.
