The cruising public can be atrocious. I've certainly seen samples of poor behavior in cruise ship towns. But I've learned that people, when given a place to be respected and listened to, are truly interesting and far from appalling. What I've found from seven years of inviting strangers aboard the David B is that people are good-natured. They are interesting, fun, and enjoyable to be around. I've also gained a lot from our guests, whether they are winemakers or homemakers.
