2. Efficient?!?! In what regard? Burning tons of heavy fuel for opulence? Transporting concentrated trash or sewage to various ports? Living in a petting dish?

I did a trip on the QE2 in my youth, and did in fact pet some nice dishes. [emoji6]

Of course, it was fully crewed.

Egypt is a very cool country to visit but not one we care to do on our own. Of course, it's also a cheap country so quite reasonable to have paid folks looking after you.
oh, i'd love to sail a felucca again, but not in Egypt. being female and being on my own and being of nordic descent, this was the hard part...

I was wondering how long it would be before my autocorrect goldmine would be noticed.

Re: Anyone dreaming about living on a cruise ship?

OP, don’t interpret the response as hate toward YOU; rather think of it as a dream not popularly shared by sailboat cruisers... and it comes at a time when we’re all crankier than usual.

If you look at the active topics, you’ll find the usual favorite sparring grounds conspicuously absent. There are no active “best anchor type” debates, no “mono vs multihull” discussions, there are no absolute beginners posting their exploits in multi-year-long threads from grossly unseaworthy vessels while attempting to navigate the southern ocean for 1000 days, no one is endangering their young family on the Pacific Ocean in need of rescue on questionably maintained boats (after slagging others off here for doing the exact same thing), and even the Covid stuff is dying down to a low roar (which is particularly distressing because many have really honed our forum debate skills on that chestnut)

We have yachting caps and cruise ships. If anything, (yachting?) hats off to you for sparking a fun, multi-page discussion!

I’ll say that while this propagating a pretty lively discussion here, if you want to discuss among a truly open-minded crowd , take this topic over to sailing anarchy, drag the JiffyPop popper out of mothballs, and enjoy!

Thanks! I'm sorry this reply took too long. I was too scared to look at the comments cause I am scared of possible backlashes. Thank you! And thank to everyone who made me feel welcome here!

This sounds very interesting to me, Fantasy Island anyone. very cool. Biggest drawback is the germs. You can airbnb when your not aboard. I love this.
