We certainly have gotten soft. Been on many cruises - the whole job of the crew is to make you happy. I would bet there are hundreds of stories of what the crew did on this ship to make a bad situation better. These stories would be more interesting than a bunch of whinner that didn't have the benefit of a toilet for a few days. Kinda makes you wonder what would happen if this country ever had a war on our soil. Some of the greatest stories of human survival come out of the south during and after the war of northern aggression.
