    As a travel blogger, I’d have to say the moral of the story is “ask a travel blogger for advice before booking” (cheeky self-promotion? sorry). On a serious note, perhaps the moral of the story is about making assumptions. By the way, if she had a cabin-mate, you’d think she would have been told about the dinners, how the heck did she afford a private cabin?

    I dunno, you hear a LOT about food poisoning on cruise ships, so maybe she was just being prudent.

    So you asked for the religious interpretation — you did, I see it in your blog! So no judgment allowed. 🙂 James 4:2 – You have not, because you ask not. Matthew 7:7 – Ask and it shall be given you. As children of God, we have access to all his abundance – if we want it.

    Was the point that she was a dumbass? I don’t get it!

    Oh my gosh! This story! I was told this story in family home evening (a Mormon thing, yes) by my uncle when I was a kid. I’m 50+ now and still think about it and I still don’t know the moral. Maybe “be prepared”? It was just SAD.

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
