Personally, D/W and I booked a cruise on Tuesday, so you know my answer to that question.

In reality, I bet more people die in car accidents going to or home from a cruise then actually die on cruise ships.
I hadn't seen that poll but the 37% of people who have cruised is a high number to me. Even if half of these (18.5%) don't cruise again that is a big hit to the industry.

Take care,
