Crusin for a brusin

USA Today

There is an old trend in town folks that is getting a lot bigger. If you want to rid yourself of your better-half/worst-half; take them on a cruise and come back with less baggage.

This is what appeared to happen with Daniel Belling and his family.


He and his wife their two children set off on an 11-day Mediterranean cruise on February 9th. But according to Newser, only three of them boarded a flight back to Dublin—or tried to.

The 45-year-old German native was stopped for questioning at Rome’s Ciampino Airport on Tuesday in connection with the apparent disappearance of his wife, Li  Yinglei who vanished while on the cruise and her loving hubby Danny neglected to report her missing. 

The Irish Times reports Belling was due to be charged Friday with her murder. Belling’s lawyer says there is a “perfectly good explanation,” and that Belling had no hand in Li’s disappearance. However, he did not elaborate.

Naturally, Danny Boy’s ambulance chaser has an explanation.  I have never seen an ambulance chaser without an explanation but they rarely tell us what it is.


This may be a family conspiracy. The article mention Daniel and his 2 kids. Between the three of them, according to the article, no one mentioned the wife/mother missing.  Possibly,  Li burned their bacon or toast when she made their breakfast??

Disappearance is nothing new in the cruise business. According to

The vanishing passengers: It’s a mystery as bizarre as it is disturbing – why have 165 people gone missing from cruise ships in recent years?

I really don’t know, but I am assuming it is very difficult to prove that someone offed their partner by offing them over the rail.  Unless there is a video or witnesses, it has to be hard to prove.
A Word to the wise. If you and your better-half/worst-half are feuding and they axe you to go if you want to go on a cruise; I would suggest you decline the offer.  Tell them you would rather go on a hayride instead. It is a lot harder for a person to go missing on a hayride than it is on a cruise.

Mind you, this is only a suggestion.

    Losses at Sea, of that nature, are common.
