NCL have a position called Port and Cruise consultant for that, an I'm sure the other companies do too. When I was with NCL they had a certain basic salary plus some percentage of every cruise they sold.

Dave, a geek cruise would be a great idea! You're full of it (great ideas) tonight!

Tom, I try to be very accommodating to other people's posts but I am really scratching my head on this one. I am someone who has made his share of controversial posts and it is with the staff's greatest indulgence that I am still here. You are incorrect in your assessment on learning. If you get paid to give a speech, you are certainly able to proclaim yourself a professional speaker. A professional is not the same as an expert. Monetary reward for a speech does not make the individual who gave the speech a priceless resource of information. Be yourself...

I know a guy with a PhD in health physics (radiation protection). I can't wait to tell him he wasted all those years in study and research, when all he needed to do was 182.5 hours of reading.

Come on Dave... Give your colleague a break. It might have been 183 hours of reading if it was a leap year.

Nah, they weren't wasted years. I sense some frustration. Perhaps students making you crazy?

I'm impressed! I like learning about the regular members.

Always



but thank to God we don't start this semester until next monday.

as for the lecturer theme:

As I remember you can find great guide books on your local bookstore,
That can simplify your cruising live.
I already have a few and they are, for me, a great option without staying on the ship so someone can tell you what to do,

For example

"Berlitz complete guide to cruising"

"Frommers Caribbean ports of call"

"frommers caribbean cruises and ports of call"

As I see it with all the info on the net, cruisechat forum, the books on cruising, the travel channel etc. I don't see much need for a lecturer on a ship...

Those are all excellent books you listed. The Berlitz Guide To Cruising by Douglas Ward is considered "the" book by many cruise fans. I get the new edition every year.

I agree with you about not seeing much use for a lecturer. I don't go on cruises to sit around listening to lectures. That sounds too much like school to me, and probably like work to you. I don't go to school when I'm on vacation.
