    You have to be in the 1% to ride one of those things any way.

      Jeez.....The so-called 1% have their own "boats" and what has that to do with anything. Half of all American workers and even more western Europeans could save for and afford a cruise if they really wanted one.

      Actually, cruising is by-far one of the most economical vacations out there. It's geared much more towards the middle class. The 1% you refer to have their own yachts. They don't mingle with us lowly cruisers.
