I’ve started taking notes on some the questions and comments that I’ve heard asked on cruise ships. I don’t want to call them stupid questions but I’ll let you be the judge.

Here are a few from my most recent voyage on NCL’s Pride of America 7 day Hawaii cruise.

BTW this is the relaxed way to see the islands. I’ve done the 13 day/12 night 4 islands by air & car tour tour but I loved the cruise otion. It’s the civilized way to travel. Unpack once & watch the islands sail by. No airport hassles, rental cars, hotel check ins & more.

Back to the questions:

• What time is the Midnight Buffet?
• Do these steps go up or down?
• How can I tell which pictures are ours?
• Does the ship generate its own electricity?
• Does the crew sleep on board?
• What interesting ones can you share?

Happy travels! Be kind to your travel agent & get out of town!
