My wife and I are thinking of taking a cruise in the near future and I started brainstorming about all the ways to prepare for survival situations which could arise. What I mean is anything from major criminal activity (not purse snatching, but maybe kidnapping or minor riots on board, etc.) to being in an overboard situation. Assume we're going somewhere warm, like the Bahamas and wouldn't immediately freeze in the water. I understand chances are slim of the overboard thing happening or a group of terrorists taking over the ship, but I'm guessing there's a few of you out there who've thought about it anyways. As for being overboard, I love the idea of having a firesteel around my neck, since it can be wet and still makes a great 'strobe' effect when struck in the dark. I already have a small Fox40 whistle to keep around my neck with the firesteel. As for criminal activity, I'm thinking avoidance (be smart and stick with the crowds while on land, etc) if possible or if on board and avoidance is not possible, then just hole up (in the cabin or some place else I can protect) and try to wait it out. What are your thoughts?
