We recently went on the Disney Cruise Ship. The kids were afraid of the
sounds the toilet made (flush & run!!). Husband tried to explain by
telling us about water in toilets north & south of equator (sure!). What
is different about the way the ships toilets flush? Why would they need a
different flushing mechanism? Thanks! Mary Beth
