I'd be lying if I said I never wanted to go on a cruise someday. Shirley and I have often discussed doing an Alaskan cruise in the next few years, however, after the recent Carnival Cruise disaster, we're having second thoughts.

The Carnival Cruise liner, 'Triumph,' became 'dead in the water' for five days in the Gulf of Mexico after an engine room fire disabled the engines. And shortly after, conditions deteriorated very quickly. Sanitation was the big issue, followed by hoarding.

Will you ever take a cruise?
