Fly Me To The Moon

Could it become a reality in our lifetime? I recently read an article questioning who has rights to Lunar property, and how would one claim it. Is it possible to have a Hotel Hilton on the Sea of Tranquility? As a fan of cruise vacations, this is an interesting topic for me. A flight to the moon would take a decent amount of time, and to make it worth while the craft would be best suited if decked out like a cruise ship rather than an airplane. Who would want to spend the entire trip stuck in a coach class seat? Richard Branson already is working on making a trip to space a reality, so the moon would have to be the next logical step. Even if does happen in our lifetime, there are still more questions than answers. What would it cost, and who could afford to go? What would you do when you got there? The old saying that "getting there is half the fun" would definitely fit in this situation. Maybe I am getting ahead of myself but its fun to dream.
