Not to be against going on a cruise, but cruise ships are like floating petri dishes. They have to get as many people as they possibly can to cruise on those ships within a certain time frame in order to make them economically viable. Plus, the ships are designed to maximize space, which means the ships sanitary systems are design with very tight tolerances. One power failure could mean a disastous cruise, such as the Carnival Cruise ship that lost power in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. With so many people on-board, it doesn't take long before the cabins start filling up with raw sewage. And due to high cruise demands, they rarely do maintenance on those ships. Also, due to COVID-19, I still can't believe the Carnival Cruise ship (Fantasy) I took a cruise on has already been completely dismantled and scraped.
