In <i>Cruise Confidential,</i> Brian David Bruns spills the dirt 聴 or in this case, the dirty water 聴 on those romantic, fun-filled vacations at sea. His hilarious chronicle of the year he spent working for Carnival Cruise Lines takes readers down into the areas where the crew works and lives, leaving readers gasping with laughter as they鈥檙e assaulted nonstop with events that range from the absurd to the utterly bizarre. Stewards fighting over food. Cutlery allowances and other nonsensical rules. What the crew calls those onboard (no, it鈥檚 not 聯passengers鈥?. And of course, the sex. An abundance of ready, willing, and able bodies eager for action on a vessel replete with nooks and crannies leads to love in some mighty strange, and seemingly impossible, places. Breezy, entertaining, and informative, <i>Cruise Confidential</i> is essential reading for those planning a cruise or for anyone who just needs a good laugh.
