    This ship is a little smaller than the Royal Caribbean we were on 11 months ago. And mass sickness was one of our concerns. It didn't happen to us.

    You put nearly 7,000 people on a ship, passengers & crew for several days, and SOMEBODY is likely to have a very contagious disease.

    On our cruise they had Purell hand sanitizers everywhere. And we used them.

    But not everyone uses them. And SOMEBODY is gonna be sick, a statistical certainty, in an enclosed environment. That was our greatest concern, not hitting an iceberg or something and going down like the Titanic.

    I dunno. We had a great time on our cruise, no sickness or problems, and nobody fell or jumped overboard, either.

    What have been your mega-cruise ship experiences? We were very pleased with our last one.

    But docked right next to us in Mexico was the Carnival "Triumph", and I took what may have been the last picture of it before it went into the Gulf and had an engine room fire, and was stranded for 5 days. You all remember THAT horor story. I posted pics here last year.

    So I dunno. Mega-cruise ships can be wonderful, but also have risks. What are your experiences & thoughts?

    Since I'm the 1st responder to this, I need a positive input to my sleepless in Denver thread...

    But anyhow, I've never been on a cruise so I can't comment any further. However, I've always wondered what they'd be like. That's a lot of sea-sick people for sure.
