Very little good can come out of the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster. Perhaps photos like these are the an exception.
Bob and I have cruised a lot, and while we're not going to Italy to cruise anytime soon, we did book a cruise to Bermuda for this June. It sails out of NYC, I'll already be there, so Bob will fly in, in time to board the ship. We've gone to Bermuda twice before, and think it's wonderful. It'll be a good "first outing", for Bob after his illness. He assures me he'll be "cruise-ready" by June.
Be well and do good,
