Truth: Cruise Blues

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I never have been on a cruise in my life.  I'd like to though, but I can't lie to you and tell it doesn't concern me. 
I know many people who have been on cruises; and for the most part they all liked them pretty much.  I do recall a friend telling me that 5 people died on their cruise ship all from various ailments over the course of a few weeks. I though, am stuck on seeing the Titanic (the original, not the lame remake) in my head.  I'm stuck the story about the Andrea Dorio.  I'm stuck about seeing Shelly Winters drowning in The Poisdeon Adventure (the original, not the lame remake). I'm stuck on seeing the Costa Concordia on its side off the coast of Tuscany because of an incompetent captain.
No matter what mode of transportation or event, I always think about the worst scenario happening.  Not from a pessimistic point of view; but a preparedness point of view.  I want to be ready to handle the situation.  I want to know where the exit ways are.  The safety vessels, authorities, escape routes etc. Ya just never know.
I don't know why I think this way.  Maybe just maybe it is because I was influence by the media or entertainment over the years that scared the hell out of me. Was it my scout training from years past? Maybe real life events stick with me, and I'm a realist about things.  I don't know if I am alone in this, or if you think these things too.
Sometimes I need to tell myself to just let it go. However since I just observe everything; it's hard to turn off the fear factor.
