I guess they are lucky the cruise was almost over.

For a review of this ship, here is Raoul's assessment of the m/v Van Gogh at his website.

On the bright side, if you have to get stranded on a ship for a few days, Funchal is a great place to be.

I just have one question,

Did anyone see the child in the picture on the article? How could a child be out for 93 days, no school and how could you afford to pay $12,000- $44,000 on them.

I guess if they can pay that themselves, they are pretty rich so they can afford her too.

Homeschooled?

Just Ponder.

Two observations here. First, don't assume that American education rules apply here. The young girl in the photo is probably not from the United States, so we don't know what rules apply for her education. Second, although this was a 93 day cruise, don't assume that everyone aboard had to be there for the whole cruise. It is quite common for people to join a leg of a world cruise and only spend a week or two on the ship.

And anybody that could afford a trip like that could probably also afford to take along a tutor.
