Future generations may ask, “What did they do when the ice caps melted?”

“It has 13 decks, eight restaurants, a casino and a spa. Staterooms start at about $20,000 and run as high as $120,000.

I don’t even know what to say about this, but two quotes come to mind:

“It appears my hypocrisy knows no bounds.” — Doc Holiday

“New Orleans is sinkin’, man, and I don’ wanna swim.” — The Tragically Hip
