GUEST,Patsy BS: Costa Concordia Sinking-2012 (368* d) RE: BS: Costa Concordia Sinking-2012 18 Jan 12

Cruises had never really appealed to me. Unfortunately in the 60s and 70s growing up I had this notion that it was all going to be a bit like a Carry-on movie, it was the last thing I would have dreamed of doing for a vacation and in my mind then (wrongly) just for much older people who's only interests centered around bingo, sequence dancing and the cabaret in the evening. But mostly I had the view (wrongly) that people who went on cruises were possibly not adventureous enough to travel through or stay anywhere long enough to get to know the culture of a particular country. Now that I am older I can see the benefits of a cruise ship as a relaxing base with the option of a range of activities ashore for some people it can be ideal but what prevents me is the mentioned notion above about older single women considered as hags.
