Default Retired baby boomers

I fit right into your category Jim of the retired baby boomer who sees the attractiveness of these cruises, but I certainly don't fit into the financial picture. And that is why I question it: are there enough people with that kind of money and the desire to take a trip to fill all these boats? Just as we are enchanted with the Rhine and other European rivers, so nonAmericans are fascinated by the river of Mark Twain(or so they think it is). We don't appreciate what is in our backyard and I suspect a large portion of the passengers will have to come from overseas. I just know that two Masters degrees and 34 years of teaching have not left me with disposable income needed for these creatures....
