I think, in the end, a lot of this discussion, doesn't matter that much.
Those, who really want to go cruising, will find a way. Those that don't find a way, probably really didn't want to go that bad in the first place, or often, simply embrace the idea of cruising as kind of a romantic daydream, that they use to escape the daily grind for a while.
Nice to think and dream about chucking it all and going cruising-- not so nice to make the life changes and sacrifices to make it happen.
Nothing wrong with that, but also not much you can do or say to change that sentiment.
