On the subject of announcements and things, there has been a question bugging me for a long time.
Over many cruises.
Which sailors spend the most $$ amount of money to be 'onbroad?'
I mean, who has to fork out the highest prices to just be there?
I reckon New Zealanders/Aussies are the ones who have to spend a fortune just to land in Miami.
Then the cabin cost, sea pass costs, hotels in Florida and beyond....also, the furthest to travel to be there as well.
Maybe South Africans?
It's a 16hr flight to Houston, Texas from Sydney!
16hr flight from Johannesburg to Atlanta!
Maybe this is a Statsman research thing!
I know this is a little off-topic, ish...but it is a huge decision to make for people so far away from Miami, that the sooner the NEWS, the better one can prepare and save and plan.
I bet this never comes into the equation for the organizers.
The longer one has to wait in these regions, the harder it can be to organize and get flights at decent prices etc.
