I watched one today, slowly drifted away from the wharf with front and rear thrusters on lightly, then cranked up the rear thruster and shifted the front thruster to the opposite side.

As slick as snot.

I hope you asked the captain if he’d consider himself and ship to be our Navy?
Well the stories I've heard recently about some of the ever increasing failures from boot camp, yes, a cruise ship would be appropriate, as passengers.
I'm posting this from Traditional lands of the British Empire & the current Lands of The Dominion of Canada.
I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

Staying on the military theme.

To help combat the vehicle crash incidents of veterans coming home from over seas,
with money to buy a muscle car, Ford built a few special edition Mustangs called
Lawman.
They sent them overseas with a well respected race car driver with a back ground in
law enforcement to hold performance driving schools for the troops.
Hoping to prepare them with enough knowledge and skill to handle the brute
power of the cars offered from the factories.

Well the Cruise ship we were just on is as bad as our old Navy ships.

Flooding, Fires, toilets not working and crappy food...
