Cruise Ship Overturns in Mediterranean Sea (Yikes)

Featured Member Post

I have a huge fear of cruise ships. I've been seasick aboard my parents sport fisher. I just can't imagine being stuck on a cruise ship for days seasick. We've been out on the open sea many times with my parents, they have a 65 Viking fishing boat, and every year they take hubby and I somewhere warm. But this is different. A cruise ship.

Hubby told me about the dental seminar coming up in June aboard a cruise liner in the Mediterranean Sea and asked if we wanted to go. An ortho seminar onboard a cruise ship? Well, maybe I can just pack enough Dramamine or Bonine to keep me from getting sick. We have quite a few ports of call, we will be visiting in Italy, Greece, Spain and other places and my trigger finger got really itchy (I'm a photographer) when he told me of this opportunity. Although we can't charge the business for this seminar, we can justify it, in the name of education credits for hubby which he has to keep up with. And it was on our bucket list.

So yes, I said yes. And this morning, woke up to the news that the cruise ship Costa Concordia capsized Friday night, killing five people. Oh joy, reinforce my fears, why don't you? I am so sorry for the fatalities, and now my fear of cruising has just been renewed. Yikes!

Have you ever been on a cruise? Did you get sick? Would you be scared after this accident? I'm thinking I need counseling before we go now.
