Wall Street Journal celebrates the return of the class system. It’s like a ship of protectionism for the elite.
Sick stuff. Go here to read Andrea Petersen‘s story in the Wall Street Journal.
A snippet – “A growing number of cruise lines have built lavish—and separate—cocoons for their biggest spenders. It is a departure from the egalitarianism that had reigned on most ships for the last several decades when everyone from the humblest inside stateroom to the most luxurious suite would rub elbows in the same bars, dining rooms and pool decks. In a way, the trend is a throwback to the heyday of trans-Atlantic crossings in the 1920s, when first-, second- and third-class passengers were assigned separate areas of vessels. (Though no one would mistake today’s cheapest stateroom for the gloomy steerage dorms of centuries past.)”
This reeks of wealthy people avoiding reality. However, sounds fun.
In the 1920′s New Zealand was known for the best big game fishing. The richest Americans fled America and loved game fishing culture on the waters of Aotearoa. Maybe that will happen again on a competitive level in such a climate as Kiwis retain and not sell off the same coasts being discussed. :)
