For all the reasons booking a cruise might seem enticing, we have a counter-argument for why you should abandon ship. Food and some non-alcoholic beverages are typically included in the overall package, but that doesn't mean your cruise is all-inclusive; expect to pay for alcohol at a standard restaurant price-point, and don't try to sneak in your own booze — you're not the first genius to come up with this plan, and there are due procedures in place to prevent you from succeeding. Anticipate paying extra for premium alcohols, or shelling out cash for hidden service charges.

A new video has been posted yesterday of a young man jumping off a cruise ship while the vessel was sailing near the port. The footage filmed by one of his friends shows the young man climbing on top of the railing and jumping off the cruise ship some 70ft into the sea. The jump was strongly condemned as "incredibly dangerous and stupid" by fellow passengers.
This article originally appeared on BusinessInsider. Cruise ship jobs have a number of distinctive features that separate them from land-based jobs. Perhaps the biggest difference is the fact that cruise ship employees live where they work.

Fan, the year-old woman, survived by keeping herself afloat and avoiding large ships in the choppy waters of the East China Sea until she was finally found by a fishing vessel almost two days later, covered in jellyfish stings. Fan, who said she is a good swimmer because she graduated from a sports university, said she screamed for help but no one was on deck that late. During the ordeal, she managed to swim out of the way of large ships approaching to avoid being sucked underwater.
I just got back from a Caribbean cruise out of New Orleans for my children's winter school break. What the doctor ordered? In case you're ever considering something similar, I thought I'd share my family's review of the cruise, with photos to match.
Pretty much sucks! Got my cruises loaded as well as my anchor number the fact that I had to reload everything in the first place is ridiculous! But no way to look at the individual cruise details cruise planner etc.
For passengers, spending a couple of days on a ship may be the best version of a dream vacation. Their food is really bad. Gourmet food on a cruise ship?
