25 Crazy Things About Cruise Ships To Consider Before Your Next Vacation

Thinking of taking a cruise ship vacation? You’re not the only one. After all cruises are becoming more and more popular with every passing day. Thanks in part to the fact that you can find pretty good vacation deals and also because more and more of the world is becoming middle class and can therefore afford vacations. But cruises aren’t the only thing growing. Cruise ships themselves are getting bigger and bigger. In fact, in the near future, some ship builders are even planning to build a replica of the Titanic (which pales in size when compared to some of our modern ships)! Can you imagine cruising on the Titanic! These are but a couple of things to consider before taking your next cruise ship vacation.

Of course, cruises aren’t always all fun and games. Sometimes bad things happen. For example, if you are out at sea and you either suffer some form of trauma or someone has a stroke, how is that situation taken care of? There is usually a doctor on board but the number of supplies he/she has are limited. Quite often the ship doesn’t even have any extra blood that it could give someone in case of an emergency. In fact, many ships have all of their crew blood typed so that they can ask them to donate if the need every arose. Crazy huh? So if you’re thinking on taking a cruise ship vacation, pause for a moment and look at these 25 crazy things about cruise ships to consider before your next vacation!
