I’m currently working on a sci-fi/horror novel in which one of the three main characters starts out on a cruise with her kids and is docked in Port Canaveral when everything hits the fan. I have exhausted just about every avenue that I can find as far as online videos and read hours and hours of forums written by cruise employees, but I’m to the point where I’m at a standstill without someone more knowledgeable. I have all the specs and performance numbers one can expect to find online, but almost nothing in the way of how a cruise ship’s officers would cope with the nature of the disaster I’m writing about.
None of what I’m working on would in any way compromise security. The events in my work are so outlandish that there aren’t any real-world parallels.
If you would be interested, please email me at email@example.com. If I can get some good insights into what your crew would do when faced with the end of the world, I might just include you as a character. You’ll have to die, of course, but I guarantee it will be in an entertaining way.
I hadn’t seen this post make it into the forum, so I thought it might have gotten lost in the shuffle, so I had posted another with a list of questions. If a day or two delay is normal, that will be hitting this forum shortly.
I would still very much appreciate anyone’s advice or feedback as I would like to be as accurate as possible in regards to your profession.
Greetings to you my obtuse gentleman from some obscure land
I hope you can take a hint but nobody cares about your stoopid novel nor do any of us want to die in your story even if it is an “entertaining” way. I will be happy to answer your questions for cash however. Benjy’s in multiples of ten and twenty can suddenly make me become quite verbose regarding even the most inane of subjects.
I also will consider working for top shelf grade sex with hot young aspiring actresses and models if you have any of those available that you’re not using at the moment. Guns of course will also capture my interest especially if they are illegal models and…
…if you have a spare barn survivor low miles1969 Mustang Mach 1 Q code lying around, I just might be coerced to speak.
Ohhhhhh… Lets write a book about a merchant seaman who drives around in that mustang on his days off drinking, gambling and whoring. I’d buy that book and may be convinced to be a technical advisor for the movie/TV series adaptation.
Ccaptain, we seen you plenty verbose on the most inane of subjects …

HEY! I resemble that remark!
AHOY! I think he was hoping for more a more “…nautical” salutation such as that.

Now that’s something I’d like to get involved in…well only if I were that merchant seaman.
I got just the woman for the female lead. We could start filming in the Pacific Northwest immediately. I know of a guy up in that area that would volunteer as the stunt double for all the sex scenes.
I can play the fat mouthy broad, or John Wayne’s horse. Or both (just a costume change).
