Sailing the seas onboard a cruise ship, the days filled with luxury and pampering, perfect weather, glorious food, and impeccable service... it's a dream vacation. Could there be anything be better than lounging on the deck of a floating resort, soaking up the sun, indulging in whatever fits your mood?
This publication by Ross Klein is revealing the dark underside of the cruising industry, examining the contrast between the expectations of the passengers of the romance and luxury that are commonly fostered by the rosy ads, and the real-life accommodations, meals, facilities and arrangements on board that are, of course, so much seedier.
The author has managed to explode the myth of the ship cruise as an AI vacation - he has demonstrated that the maritime industry's expectation is just to get as additional hundreds of bucks per day per passenger. The author has also performed a deep examination of the cruise vessel safety, attracting out attention to the accidents on the water, security of the passengers, illnesses on board, and medical services provided. In short, we can say that the book offer its readers quite a harsh critique and a call to the action appealing to both people intending to become passengers of the cruise ship, students and activists.
