Or maybe it's because luxury travel didn't used to just be about how fast you were getting to your destination, but the whole experience of the trip. Even if it took absolutely forever.

Still, For Sweden is fond of the simpler times:

Old money prefers to be pooping and puking while seeing the world?

For Sweden:

Old money has a butler to do that for them.

For Sweden:

If you don't understand, you're not Old Money. Go run along to your retail financial advisor.

Old Money can probably get something better than whatever the Carnival Cruise deal of the day is. That helps.
