One more question: Cruise Entertainment

There's one cruise line in particular that plays Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life,"* I think it's Royal Caribbean Cruises, where they show you can jog, use weight machines and stairmasters, work out, climb rock walls, and generally exercise as a way to have fun. I am confused because, don't you take the cruise to relax? I mean, I can understand you wanting to keep up with your workout, but you never see cruise lines that advertise, say, low calorie meals or make you clean your stateroom or something. "When I pay five thousand bloody pounds for a fuckin' cruise, mate, I wanna fuckin' relax..." I don't want to say, "Whew! I spent all week on a cruise, and man, am I tired! I must have worked out all week real hard. They had a rock wall, I rode a stationary bike for hours, and then I just beat my naked back with whips until they were bloody and raw! Woo!"

Maybe I just don't understand exercise.

* Anyone ever listened to those lyrics? Not exactly PG cruise material.
