  1. I forced myself to finish this book in case it improved it did not While it serves as an excellent travel log for him and the family who joined him on board, it provides very little insight into life on a luxury liner Much time is spent on the history of the ports visited and of other authors and their seafaring tales I would like to have heard about the guests and crew he encountered even if painted in broad strokes to avoid identification Mr Thomson seems to miss these opportunities An explora [...]


  2. I m afraid my feeble mind couldn t keep up with the writer s quite extensive vocabulary, and quite often I had to look up the meaning of words At times this became tedious, and I may have lost the beauty of the story in my fervor to understand what was going on behind all those words For someone learned that myself this would be a good story.At the same time I thought the author covered a great deal of good and enjoyable information, and I related to many of the ports of call and excursions, hav [...]


  3. I expected this to be a personal account of cruise travel, an actual description of sharing a fabulous meal at the captain s table, rather than different stories about cruising Nice to skim through, didn t read through to finish.


  4. I m not sure why I read the book all the way through, maybe I still feel an obligation to an author This is a trite text about luxurious life on a year long cruise that has bland stories, flat characters, and no zing The author tells us his experiences on a year long cruise He does encounter some unique personalities, does have some insights on the whole business of a year long cruise, but doesn t really accomplish anything There are a couple of places where I thought he was going to take off an [...]


  5. An easy and enjoyable read Basically, a memoir from a professional writer hired to work for a luxury small cruiser to entertain and enlighten the top one percent of the super wealthy population I am certain that his experience as a working stiff on a cruise ship was far different from most of the other employees due to his celebrity speaker employee status I envied his excursions and experience of wonderful food and cocktails I gained weight just reading about food I am jealous of the author for [...]


  6. This short book is for those searching for light entertainment as well as an insight into the back office of luxury cruise liners.How I envy Hugh Thomas and his lengthy cruise around the world all told and I m sure I m not the only one We get a glimpse of his ports of call and a frank lowdown of what goes on behind the scenes on these types of boats as well as very candid remarks about the punters taking them.A bit self indulgent at times, Thomas is a fluid writer who keeps you turning the pages [...]


  7. If you are looking for the dirt on cruise ships add this to your list, but only fro the perspective of where do the ultra wealthy cruise as this is different to your mass occupancy short cruise party boats This book provided an insight into the ultra wealthy and how they experienced cruising, particularly from someone that was not crew, and not a guest, but someone in between Their story is an interesting one of time at sea and exotic destinations Worth the read.


  8. This was an interesting book At one point I often wondered what guest speakers do on cruises, you know the ones.poetry cruises,scientific,rock and roll ,all kinds of special cruises I gave this four stars not so much for the writing as for the interest in what kind of life a was portrayed here Modern day story tellers tracing the seas, gypsies of sort.


  9. Having been on several shorter cruises I thought this might be an amusing read It was in parts but although informative about the places I am not sold on a luxury world cruise I will stick to P O I reckon.


  10. A nice window into the world of luxury cruising, well written but not what I thought it would be, short in details short in general.
