Being a bit suspicious about elephant rides is entirely justified. Elephants are "tamed" (a better word would be "tortured") to allow people to ride them. Elephants are different from horses. I hope they also offer tours that bring you close to elephants in the wild, which I know is an experience that you will never forget
Don’t people of certain cultures eat domesticated horses, cattle, dogs, cats, kangaroo, baby cows, baby lambs, monkeys, other mammals, and sea life. That must be cruel as well. Animals and sea creatures have feelings, and it must be horrible for them at the moment when they are being slaughtered by humans.
I read in some culture a live monkey’s head is placed in a hole in a dinner table, then have their head split open for diner guests to feast on the monkey’s brain.
And in certain European western cultures it is common to serve horse meat, baby lamb, baby cows, or kangaroo at gourmet restaurants in countries like France, Australia, New Zealand, USA, and UK.
Maybe cruisers/tourists should boycott those countries and not support those cultures that are cruel to animals?
Enjoy your cruise.
