Product Description

Product Description

If you are reading this intro, then I take it that you have an interest in cruise ships. It could be you want to work on a cruise ships, you want to or have taken a cruise, maybe you are looking for tips on cruising or maybe you just like fun stories about cruise ships. If you are interested in any of those items I just listed, then this book is for you.

Before we begin our journey, I guess I should tell you a little bit about myself and why I have written this book. For my cruise ship experience, I worked about 12 years on cruise ships around the world and 2 years working in shore side offices in Florida. I worked with 4 different cruise lines and worked as a scuba instructor/dive manager, shore excursion manager and then in the shore side offices as an IT geek, and finally a few years as an IT officer (yeah, I know, scuba instructor to computer geek, what can I say, it has been an interesting journey).

Stories in this book include ones about:
Getting a job on cruise ships
Life on board ships
On board romance
Hurricanes
Running aground
Adrift at sea
Kick backs
Falling overboard
Living on a tropical island
Crazy things the crew and passengers do

and much much more........................

I also have photos about my life at sea that can be seen at: www.cruiseshipstories.com
Looking at these photos will bring my sea faring stories even more to life.

A bit like reading a jack the lad diary but anyone aspires from a ships diver to on board IT expert must have lots of drive.
Having been cruising for many years on all cruise lines I found some of the observations interesting and sometimes a bit scary.
I do however like reading about cruise ships so I had to read it.
It's not really a truly polished professional publication as such but I'm Glad I took the time.

EXCELLENT BOOK FOR THOSE FAMILIAR WITH CRUISING, IT IS VERY FACTUAL AS TO WHAT GOES ON BEHIND THE SEAS. NOT SURE I WANTED TO KNOW ALL THE THINGS THAT GO ON BUTS IT TELLS IT AS IT IS.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cruise ship stories 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
Having just returned from a Panama Canal cruise I was delighted to find this book. I read it on my Kindle. I loved the stories but got fed up reading I will tell you about that later! The number of typo errors was huge and being a bit of a perfectionist I found it really annoying. Feel it should be rewritten or at least proofread properly..

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase
Typo's galore. Childish writing style spoils the potential content. Not sure whether I'll finish reading this book. Won't be in a hurry to look for other offerings from this author.
