I've never been on an international cruise ship going from 1 country to another. Do they usually have all the passengers wear chains when sailing?

Dill? Troll? Nope ~~ Im a traveling disser from Nirvana. My posts speak my ancient heritage. I travel the world and digital realms seeking to blow out the fires of hate, greed, and delusion, and seek emancipation from ignorance and the extinction of enlightenment.

Bet you can't do this ~~
