In Cruise Confidential, Brian David Bruns spills the dirt — or in this case, the dirty water — 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’re 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’s not “passengers”). 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, Cruise Confidential is essential reading for those planning a cruise or for anyone who just needs a good laugh.

I just took my third cruise (on Carnival) and I tried to pay more attention to the staff and crew on board this time. Most everyone was genuinely friendly and helpful. I did notice some of the higher staff didn't always have a smile on their face and looked like there was a million different places that they would rather be at that moment. I enjoyed learning all of you ins and outs of the cruising work life. The book brought a lot of laughter into my life and sparked quite a bit of fascination! Job well done!
As a 2/M with NCL I love to read these first time stories and the crew troubles that go on behind the scenes, Brian you did a great job and I couldn't put down this great book from the day I started it! Best of luck to you.
