It sure ain't the 'Minnow'

This thing is probably bigger than Gilligan's Island.
Five times larger than theTitanic, the $1.5 billion ship has seven neighborhoods, an ice rink, a small golf course and a 750-seat outdoor amphitheater. It has 2,700 cabins and can accommodate 6,300 passengers and 2,100 crew members.

I hope it has enough capability to handle 6,300 people with mass diarrhea and vomiting when the first major viral outbreak takes place. I also wonder if they've identified exactly how many thousands of locations on this ship someone can fall overboard. You know I'm gonna be on top of the first reported incident like stink on doo-doo. (thank you Greg Coleman)

I bet the crew on the bridge were all trying desperately to keep the doo-doo inside their rectums as they were going under this bridge.


  1. I never understood to attraction of cruise ships. The spousal entity and I did a cruise years ago, but that was on a much smaller ship where we could actually get to know the other folks. Cruise ships today are like huge hotels that happen to be afloat. I could do the same activities at the Luxor in Vegas. If you want to sail a ship, sail a ship, but don't waste your money on a cruise. (Just my $0.02.)

  2. Looks like they recycled the blueprints from the Emma Maersk (a container ship) to make that one. Yuck. They sure didn't waste money on architects, like Steve says.
