I am sure that is being taken as a joke, with "tongue in cheek".

I simply consider the source and shrug my shoulders. Hello in there, Dwayne.

Thats a sad thing to do. You should lighten up a little. If you can make a joke, you should be able to take one?

I think we can all dish it out and we can all take it; but sometimes, over cyberspace, it's hard to see that tongue in the cheek.

I had a hint of this. Everything Ken says is Dave this and Dave that, and what do you think Dave?

I would say go together and hold your heads up and be proud you are together. I would not suggest skipping while you both enter though.


Huh?

The pilot does not physically take the wheel for obvious reasons. New ships such as the Freedom class don't even have a wheel, they have joy sticks and seats that look more like fighter pilot cockpits than traditional wheelhouses. The pilot will give instructions on course, speed, etc., and the bridge crew will carry these things out. Often the crew knows the routine for XYZ port so well that the pilot just stands around and lets the crew handle it.

I love to skip hand in hand.

And is it really Ken that has to agree with everything Dave says? There is so much "oh I agree" on this site that the only apparent reason some people post is to up their number of posts. You know, like keeping up with the Joneses. Make sure you look for that big 'ol tongue swabbing the inside of my cheek, now.

While I have not had dinner at the Captain's table, I have had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with several Captains over the years.

One of my favorites was in 2006 on Norwegian Majesty. The kids club had a "Meet the Captain" session, and parents were invited to sit quietly in the back. The Captain was wonderful with the kids -- answering all their questions. The best was when a girl of about 10 asked him, "has anyone ever died on one of your ships?"

He also talked with us a bit afterwards, and was thrilled to learn we would be visiting his homeland of Norway the following year.

We also had a great Captain on Diamond Princess in 2005. He held a Q&A session with passengers one sea day. Someone asked him how much a Captain earns. His response: "Not as much as you'd think, and certainly not as much as my wife thinks."

I would have loved to share a meal with either of these gentlemen. I imagine it would have been a memorable and fun event.
