What is a STATUS MILE? I understand a mile is 5280 feet, or 1609 meters, or even 945 Smoot’s. But I never heard of a STATUS MILE. Perhaps this is why an unnamed Cruise Ship, (Carnival Breeze), had trouble getting to most of it’s Ports. This is the sign on the walk around deck. Click on the picture to make it big enough to read.
They say a STATUS MILE is 2.5 laps where a lap is 2,044 feet. Therefore a STATUS MILE would be 5,132. Sure seems like an odd measurement.
