Cruise News

Another good reason for me to maintain my record of never having taken a cruise, or considered the idea:

Argentina has been accused in Britain of trying to ‘strangle’ the Falkland Islands by intimidating cruise ships. "At least 12 incidents of luxury liners being targeted have been reported to Britain’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office since November. ...Protesters or industrial action by militant unions are disrupting vessels that have a stopover in islands on their itinerary. ..." (According to a report in the Daily Mail via etrurbonews.)

Only a Brit newspaper, incidentally, would use the term "luxury liner" to describe a cruise ship.
