We did one Euro cruise and it was great, we did one river cruise and it was OK, it was kind of a cut rate operation.

The caliber of passenger in a Euro cruise is quite a bit different than a Carib cruise in my experience.

And I've learned that "free" ultimate beverage package is not nearly free.

I don't hate cruises but they aren't my first choice. Costco was surprisingly cheap and easy to plan a vacation through. Would love to book a trip to Ireland when we can.

Back when my daughter was applying to many universities I told her "Honey you can go to any college you want to but Im not paying any more then what the Univ of Texas charges"  Funny thing she decided to become a Horn. My job was done

Just finished up a Zoom with my Wednesday AM networking group. Really looking forward to meeting in person again, but I doubt that will happen before I'm a Floridian. Hell, next week I become a Wisconsinite for 2 months.

I think the use of zoom will be one of the things that will carry over from these days

I never could figure out why folks would travel from place a to place b to have a business meeting when most of what you want to do can be done using zoom

back in my working days my boss and I would travel to NY City about once every 4 months just to have a hour long financial meeting with investors.  This trip cost our company over $2,000 every time we went.  Today we could just jump on zoom and be done with it

Man I hope. Court has been conducting a lot of hearings over Zoom.

Your story is indistinguishable from young people's today, except that they also get a big debt on top of it (and housing is way more expensive). 
why do today's young people get a big debt?  Credit cards and student loans?

Credit cards weren't a thing when I was in college in the early 80's, but student loan rates were very high.
I chose to work while in high school to save for college and over the summer while in college to lessen my need for loans.  I also dropped out of college because I didn't want the debt for a degree that might not get me a decent job.

no one is forcing young people today to take on more debt than they can manage

Huh?  Paid my way through college including multiple student loans because my parents didn’t have the money to give me.
What did college cost you and in which year?

(This isn't meant to be a gotcha. I know I've had this discussion with my parents and I am generally curious if we're talking in the same terms)

had a similar discussion with my daughter - when the 529 account is empty, it's on her

she wanted to attend UNL, out of state from Iowa - double the price
she decided to start a semester late to live with her grandma in Nebraska to qualify for residency

Credit cards get pushed on young people, but they are typically much less substantial than student loans. Also student loans can't be discharged through bankruptcy. No one is "forcing" anything except difficult decisions that previous general generations didn't have to deal with.
