When it comes to the Swine Flu pandemic here is a great Princess Cruise Lines ad proving the point tourists should stick to ships and avoid jets.


Princess Cruises excellent and rather cynical television ad (click on arrow) reminds everyone what we already know about the horrors of air travel as compared to sailing aboard a ship.

The Pullman Company use to have the greatest safety record and so did such venerable companies such as the Santa Fe Railway.   Today, rail travel in America is not a great alternative because it is not safe compared to the past. Amtrak has accidents annually. Imagine commuting by train in Los Angeles and Southern California with Metrolink engineers sending text messages when they should be driving the train.   The only safe way to travel still seems to be by ship and Princess Cruises proves the point dramatically in their excellent video ad.
