Here are a few humorous questions from passenger to onboard staff collected by Cruise Directors over the years (the answers are probably the ones in their heads and not on their lips!) But, the questions nevertheless are real:
Q. Does the crew sleep on-board?
A. Of course not, late at night a water taxi picks them up and takes them home!
Q. Do these stairs go up or down?
Q. Does the ship make its own electricity?
A. No, don’t you see the long extension cord trailing behind the ship?
Q. Which is the sunny side of the ship?
A. The captain spins the ship around daily so everyone gets and even tan.
Q. Which elevator takes me to the front of the ship?
A. Ask the elevator operator when you get on, he will take you anywhere you want to go.
Q. What do you do with the ice carvings after they melt?
A. We re-freeze the water and use it for frozen drinks.
Q. What time is the midnight buffet?
A. Usually around 11 PM or so. We tried doing it right after breakfast, but most people weren’t really hungry.
Q. How do we know which pictures are ours?
A. The people who look totally clueless…those are probably yours!
Q. Is this island totally surrounded by water?
A. No, part of it is surrounded by sand, but it’s all clearly marked.
Although I can not take credit for this article, I thought that you would enjoy a few laughs!
