and Parties -- One Crazy Year Working on (Travelers' Tales) Reviews

Review: I was a bit bored of all the sex references that litter this book but was more interested in the "behind the scenes" workings of a cruise boat. I found it very interesting to hear how things operate, how the crew live, work, etc. Overall, it was a fun, mindless read. Read more
