Better late than never I guess. It was so weird going to Venice and seeing a ship (that seemed half the size of the city) parked up beside it.


Cruise ships is like a symbol of soulless boomer consumerism that will haunt future generations. I wish we could ban them or at least tax them enough so that their environmental impact is internalized.


Where will mammoths holiday now?


Good. I used to work on a huge cruise ship and while I appreciated the opportunity to visit Venice, it felt absolutely disgusting being on that massive ship passing through the city.
