As if cruise lines don't have enough problems: Paula Deen's first "business as usual" announcement is to add a themed cruise on Royal Caribbean's (RCL) Mariner of the Seas for 2014. Given Deen's problems, RCL was quick to distance itself, saying it merely hosts groups booked by outside travel agencies. "Royal Caribbean has never had a partnership or any formal association with Paula Deen."
