No More Cruise Ships…Or Maybe Not?

Darn it.

When we were in Venice last week, I noticed that the water was clearer than I’d ever seen it, and it was no accident–the massive amounts of moving water and turbidity from mega cruise ships passing through the lagoon hurts Venice and the ships themselves are frankly eyesores in this magical, ancient place.  Hopefully the suspension of the suspension will only be temporary.
