Should we start boycotting cruises now?

The overzealous TSA has decided to go over British senior citizens on cruise ships. 

Cruise passengers tell of seven-hour security 'revenge' nightmare:

It was billed as a chance to taste the “glitz and glamour” of Hollywood or enjoy VIP treatment in some of the most exclusive shopping areas in the world.

But when a group of 2,000 elderly British cruise ship passengers docked at Los Angeles for a short stop-off during a five-star cruise around America it was, in the words of one of them, more like arriving at Guantanamo Bay.

The article, a long article, paints a picture of petty TSA officials.  If this happens a couple times that I'm guessing a lot of foriegn tourists will start spending money else where.

Hat tip: Boycott Flying
