Cruise Confidential : A Hit Below the Waterline-Where the Crew Lives, Eats, Wars, and Parties One Crazy Year Working on Cruise Ships
In Cruise Confidential, Brian David Bruns spills the dirt -- or in this case, the dirty water -- on those romantic, fun-filled vacations at sea. His hilarious chronicle of the year he spent working for Carnival Cruise Lines takes readers down into the areas where the crew works and lives, leaving readers gasping with laughter as they're assaulted nonstop with events that range from the absurd to the utterly bizarre. Stewards fighting over food. Cutlery allowances and other nonsensical rules. What the crew calls those onboard (no, it's not "passengers"). And of course, the sex. An abundance of ready, willing, and able bodies eager for action on a vessel replete with nooks and crannies leads to love in some mighty strange, and seemingly impossible, places. Breezy, entertaining, and informative, Cruise Confidential is essential reading for those planning a cruise or for anyone who just needs a good laugh.

1 . Make's me think a second time on how I act on a cruise ship, at least in the dining areas...
Posted July 28, 2009 by Scott , Waxhaw, NCThe author gave great perspective of what it is like to be an American in foreign territory or in this case the single minority. The funniest part is seeing the discrimination in place just because he was an American and that alone set the tone for how he was treated, since no American before him lasted through a full contract so no manager wanted to take a chance on him to advance. In other words, I can't recommend you because American's have a history of failiing in the Cruise World. Sorry!!
It was an easy read and towards the end it started to repeat itself, but overall - if you have ever cruised before you will easily relate to the ship's crews perspectives of Americans and like me - no more third or fourth portions, heck - I may even stop with a single and go hit the buffet to split it up.
