More competition is a good thing in the industry to try and keep service up and prices down.  From the article I do not think I would go on one o the ships as he is targeting the young clients that typically do not cruise,  I do not fit either of those demographics  Sad

I wish the new company lots of success.  It may introduce a new clientele to cruising.  Who knows, if it is home based in Florida, I may get to sail with them someday.

Interesting and good for the cruise industry.  Unlikely we will be going on these ships as we do not fall into that demographic either.

Pretty exclusive clientele no ?   I mean, the Carnival Paradise was a failure, and that was for non smokers.      And how do you show proof ?  Of being, you know.......   Do you risk getting kicked off in the middle of the voyage if, let's say,  you hook up with someone ?    Oh wait, it's a Richard Branson thing right ?    Will they be selling vouchers on board for trips into space ?

I really should read more than just the title of some of these threads.

Yup, here it is.  I only remember because of my usual smarta$$ response. Wink
