While I like the idea of a girls-only event, I'm not crazy about cruise ships' environmental impact in general. I just returned from the Sian Ka'an biosphere in the Mexican Caribbean, where miles of otherwise pristine beaches were littered with trash — much of which came from these megaships. This turtle-hugger will pass for now, but for those of you who love a cruise, how does the idea sound to you?
Like any other location, the ship's store will be staffed with baristas, a full line of Starbucks drinks at what's being called "directionally similar" prices to those on land, and a wide array of Starbucks Via products. "We want that experience to be seamless," Starbucks executive Chris Carr told USA Today.
I must admit that I like the idea. What do you think of a Starbucks presence at sea?
