Not to disparage your reply, but this is what folks (most at least, except maybe the vikings) were thinking before 1492.

And may I suggest an Alaska cruise then? Land is always in sight, and it is one of the greatest places on the planet.

i also recently watched "The Grey", so no.


Say what? The Grey was a story that resulted from an airliner that crashed in the wilderness, not a cruise ship. Besides, you're never in any real danger when you're on the ship or the tour part of the trip. We were on a bus tour and saw some grey wolves in the distance (.25 to .5 miles away) but at no time were we in any danger.

Had the original Titanic hit the iceburg head on, it would not have foundered.

That's what they said when they built the original (minus GPS).

Yes. Why not? If its my time it will happen. Be it on a boat or walking to work.

My question...is the ship unsinkable and where can I store my Picasso's?
