What the hell is wrong with cruise ships?

Yet another floating disaster.

How many of these damn things turned into nightmares this year alone? SEVEN!!!!! Seven of these things turned from the splendor of the seas into into dark, powerless, floating shitholes, forcing Kathy Lee Gifford to resort to cannibalism

Cost-cutting on maintenance to improve short-term profitability. Penny wise, pound foolish.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I'll tell you what's wrong with cruise ships. They're just too damn BIG!

Shakespeare Insult 13 – Henry IV Part 1
“That trunk of humours, that bolting-hutch of beastliness, that swollen parcel of dropsies, that huge bombard of sack, that stuffed cloak-bag of guts, that reverend vice, that grey Iniquity, that father ruffian, that vanity in years?”

Nonsense.
There are plenty of ships larger then the largest cruise liner (Oasis of the Seas, 300 and something meters long) and you never hear about them in the news.
Take the Mærsk E-class container carriers for example. Much longer then the Oasis of the Seas and have you seen that thing fully loaded!? Nearly 15,000 containers...
