We had a woman Captain on RCI Monarch of the Sea's years ago.   I think she was the first woman captain of a cruise ship but not a mega ship.  The Monarch was in better shape then the prior time I was on her.

I think it is great.   The job should go on skill,  not gender, race or age.

Wonderful news.  I know that she will do just as good job as other captains.  I wish her every success. Thanks for posting!
