At 96 years old, the cause of death is "old age". May I be cruising when I'm 96!

Naw, after 20 cruise quit at age 82. Got tired of putting on the monkey suit, looking like a penguin with piping running down your pants leg roughly 3 times on each cruise was too much for me. Otherwise it's okay, I guess. But 926what can one enjoy except if you like someone catering to you while on board. One word of caution, on boarding, everyone is lovey-dovey helping you get sttled down, but on debarking one has to fend for one-self searching for your luggage/baggage helter-skelter working up a sweat, no one to help you get home and reality. Very tiring and exhausting. Wonder why, thought went on the cruise to relax. Bah!

That's because the cruise line only has control over the ship. It's the port authority who control the docks. I too had a great cruise that unfortunately ended in New Jersey. Once off the ship, it was horrible. Porters refused to help and those who got porters were given special treatment getting transportation. Nearly had to stage a riot in order to get service.
