Cruise Ship Question and Comment for the Cruise Ship Skaters

A friend of mine is going on a cruise soon, but is scared that she will be seasick. It's on a big ship and my question is to the skaters that skate on a cruise ship day in and day out ... how does one keep from getting sick?

This weekend it was the Harbor Birthday for Hamburg ... a big event for the city. I think it's Hamburg rival to Munich's more successful Oktoberfest. Hmmm, big boats vs. big boobs and beer steins - which do you think would be more successful?

Anyway, Hamburg has the harbor birthday and the Queen Mary 2 rolled into town. It's big. Although Germany's Aidasol (on the left with the red lips) is pretty big too.

Cruise ships have been in the news a lot lately and most of it bad news. We all know how the Italian cruise line Costa Concordia ended up, but did read the news about the Panamanian fisherman suing Star Princess cruise ship for failing to pick them up? According to a news report from a month ago, the crew was alerted to the problem, but did nothing. That's not good.

So, my comment for the cruise ship skaters would be, if someone mentions something about "stranded fisherman ... waving for help", don't ignore it. Tell the crew, tell the captain, tell the Coast Guard. Don't let Royal Caribbean receive the bad publicity that Princess will.

And finally, let's hope the cruise ships with ice show will never let this happen on board.

Gaddafi’s Son Built a Ship With Deadly Shark Tank Inside

Hannibal Gaddafi—son of the assassinated Libyan dictator—built a ship with a 120-ton sea water aquarium inside. Why? To put six sharks inside, including two bull sharks and two whites, the most dangerous in the world.

Why in the world would you do that?
