I'm trying to figure out if this is some kinda joke? Or... are you really that OTL (out to lunch)?

What in earth did you just post I'm on the brink of reporting your post to the mods but I really have no idea what you mean to even consider if it's offensive or whatever else it is

Re: Long-Term Outlook for Cruising

Cruising is like CF thread reading, you have to hang in there a while for it to get entertaining.

I live and work in a part of the USA where group-think is very much ingrained as a societal norm and even a requirement to stay in favor. Many of these people work government contract jobs and make $60K-$80K per year. That's a good salary, but it's within a standard deviation of the mean income in the USA. Yet, these people are absolutely convinced that they are part of the 1% of the top wealthiest people in the country and that they will be financially ruined by any policies that shift idle money out of the hording accounts of the 1% and back into the economy for the other 99% to use. Propaganda is amazing.

I just hope that "Trump" doesn't build a net wall along the coast when I'm ready to cast off and cruise south for a visit!!

Re: Long-Term Outlook for Cruising

I have seen these threads come and go and have to admit the best advice I ever got out of them was this. Just Go!

Sure. That's easy to say, but not always possible or practical to do. Many posts on this thread ignore the original question and describe what cruising is like now.

I believe that it is prudent to try to anticipate what cruising will be like in the interval of the future when one is likely to be able to cruise. For instance, in 10 years, will The Bahamas cruising experience be more like what it is today or will it be more like what the BVI experience is today? If the former, I might aim my plans at Bahamian cruises; if the later, I'd need to set my sights further away.

Will the east coast of the USA follow in Florida's footsteps regarding regulation? If so, then that would change my plans, too.

Re: Long-Term Outlook for Cruising

The golden age of cruising was in the 1960-1980s era. Cheap, safe, and everywhere accommodating. That is all gone. As the world descends into chaos cruising will be decidedly risky if not life threatening.

A close friend recently revisited her old cruising grounds along the indonesian chain of islands. Was slaughtered the second night she made landfall. This as opposed to thirty-five years ago when she use to single hand among those islands and thought nothing about hopping ashore to sleep, meet the locals, and paint.

The picture gets grimmer along the african coast, the south american eastern coastline, and along the southern mediterranean.
