Travel into the heart of cruise ship darkness with this laugh-out-loud true story of survival on the high seas. Go where no passenger has gone before and explore what it’s really like to work on the kind of cruise ship that crew members call a “ship of darkness”. From the author of Cruise Ships Do Funny Things To Me, this third book in the Chronicles of a Cruise Ship Crew Member series begins when the author and his always-optimistic girlfriend are transferred to the MS Barnacle—the kind of ship that could play the lead role in a horror flick. But there’s a silver lining to the ship swap, the MS Barnacle is cruising around the Mediterranean’s most exotic and enchanting ports.
Climb aboard the ship of darkness and explore the often seedy and always fast-paced world of cruise ship art auctions as the self-proclaimed pair of pirates set sail on a hilarious port-hopping adventure along the coast of Italy, Spain, Greece, and France.
This cruise ship memoir not only explores the sometimes Dickensian life that crew members live below deck, but also examines the fine and watery line between reality and the power of positive thinking. And it’s a story where you’ll finally discover the answers to cruise ship questions such as: What do you do when you find a sea monster living inside the drain of your stateroom toilet? Will there be ice cream machines on the life rafts if the MS Barnacle sinks? And what’s the phone number of an experienced maritime lawyer?
