Oops, a 2 billion dollar environmental hazard! The Icon of Idiots! Amazes me that being confined on a ship with 7,000 people is considered a vacation! The article states that the cruise industry contributed 75 billion to our economy. How much of that revenue will help clean up the environmental damage caused by the ships? And why on earth do they need to be 5 times larger than the Titanic? Really maddening - and sad. I recommended this article because I feel we need to know how insane our gluttony has become - beyond food.
