LIST: Excellent longform essays about the cruise industry


1. “A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again,” David Foster Wallace
2. Rebecca Coriam: Lost at Sea,” Jon Ronson
3. ???

For many Americans spring break begins tomorrow. Maybe you have a nice cruise planned. If so, I do not recommend reading these particular essays. I have never been on a cruise myself, because the idea of being trapped on a boat with a schedule of organized activities is deeply terrifying to me. I need to be able to get away at all times. Plus if I have learned anything from Unsolved Mysteries, it is that cruise ships are very haunted.
