Why does a dance host on a cruise ship have to sign a waiver releasing the agent and cruise company from liability and does his travel insurance cover him and what happens if the ship sinks?
The waiver pertains to liability of injury while dancing. Dancing on a stage is dangerous because of lighting conditions, and cruise ship stages are especially dangerous because of the added motion of the ship. Injuries to cruise ship dancers are fairly common, and the waiver is to safeguard the company against lawsuits. The dancer does however have insurance to cover medical expenses. If the ship sinks, the dancer is used as a floatation device. If we are adrift at sea for more than two days, the dancer can be used for food. In all seriousness, the dancer has as much chance in the middle of the ocean as any other person for survival. There are enough life boats for all crew and passengers -- dancers and all.

Purchasing Travel Medical Insurance . Actually, anyone you purchase insurance from is going to make money on it. Neither the cruise line nor the travel agent charge extra commission on top of the cost of insurance. The insurance company writes the insurance for a set amount. They pay commission f…rom that amount back to the retailer or cruise line. Additionally, one insurance company may have many different prices for the exact same policy, depending upon who they are writing the insurance for. The cruise line and the agent are, in most cases, selling a product like TravelGuard, TripMate, Travelex or Access America, among others. Check out all three options (cruise line, agent and insurer) and go with the most coverage for the least expensive price. Prices fluctuate all the time. This time your agent may have the best price. Next time it might be the cruise line or the insurer. Just be sure to check reimbursement method. Some travel providers (cruise lines, tour companies) only reimburse through future travel credit.. Bon Voyage!. More advice on Travel medical Insurance: . Neither. They both charge a commission. . Commission is a built in part of all travel insurance premium. If you go directly to the company, they save the portion of the premium that would have been paid in commission, not you! The best place to buy insurance is from an online travel insurance comparison site. Most consumer advocates will tell you not to buy directly from the cruise line due to the fact that certain restrictions apply if you do.. Compare Policy Coverage . Not every company has the same coverage. Check carefully. A competent travel agency generally works with multiple travel insurance companies and can provide a comparison for you.. In most cases third party coverage is cheaper than the cruise lines and provides better coverage. If you are concerned that the cruise line might go out of business, be sure to get insurance from a 3rd party. If the cruise line goes out of business, so does their insurance, and then you are stuck. ( Full Answer )
This is a difficult question, as cruise ships have different top speeds, and what route would the ship take? Can it fit through the Panama Canal? Are you asking about the length of a World Cruise which includes stops at many ports, or simply how long would it take a ship to travel from New York, go …around the world, and get back to New York?. World Cruises are typically in the neighborhood of 80 - 110 days or even longer, depending on if it truly starts and stops at the same port, and the number and length of port calls. Some World cruises start on the West Coast of the U.S. and end on the East Coast. Others start in New York and end in Southampton. Others do go round-trip from a particular port.. Ask a travel agent that specializes in cruise what the current World Cruise itineraries are to get a better idea. ( Full Answer )
You wouldn't even be able to just start up the engine on that ... Cruise ships use fuel sometimes in the category of 100's of gallons per hour.
2 days non stop more if you stop at other ports. If you are only going to take cruise ship to get to Miami then its better to take a drive. It would be cheaper, but if you like to relax and enjoy for a few more days, then take the cruise with stops and activities on the way.
A ship is a ship ... but when you qualify what kind of ship it is, that qualifier is an adjective - a describing word.
MOST meals are included in your cruise vacation. The 'main' dining rooms, room service, and the buffet are generally included.. Your ship may offer 'specialty' or 'alternative' dining options, which are available for a small cover charge. Think of this as an upgrade to your cruise, where you can ge…t a 5-course dinner with a 48 oz. Porterhouse for just $20 (for example). Rservations are generally required. . Meals that you would be eating on shore where the port of call would be taking place at will not be covered by the cruise lines. . Happy Sailing! ( Full Answer )
No one single person invented the first cruise ship, they evolved over a period of decades, with contributions being made to design changes during this time from dozens of nautical engineers and naval architects. Up until late Victorian times, the idea of taking an ocean cruise for fun, or as a hol…iday, was almost unheard of. People travelled overseas by ship because they HAD to, not out of choice- to emigrate, to visit friends or relatives abroad, to take up new jobs abroad, to get sea air for their health, and suchlike reasons. Although the great mid-19th Century steamers such as Isambard Kingdom Brunel's Great Western, Great Eastern and Great Britain (along with many others) were designed to make the voyage as comfortable for the passengers as possible, the trips were functional and not for leisure. It was only from around the 1890s that the idea of holiday cruising began to arouse public interest, and thenceforth trans-Continental liners began to be designed more with this in mind, becoming more like hotels than their predecessors and incorporating leisure, social and sports facilities on board, as well as superior cabins. But no single person was responsible for this- like the motor car, it just evolved from many different contributors to the phenomenon. ( Full Answer )

A cruise ship is a very large ship, usually carrying hundreds of passengers, that tours various areas or countries while providing comfortable living arrangements aboard. They usually have a variety of shops, restaurants, boutiques, and services for the guests. The range of accommodations ranges f…rom inside cabins, to balconies, and to ocean-view deluxe suites.. Children are generally provided amusements and entertainment during the day, such as table tennis, games, swimming pools, and movie showings.. A staple of cruises are the 24-hour food and drink service, including both buffets and formal dining. When docked at islands or ports of call, many offer excursions to local sites of interest : shopping, tours, and scheduled events. ( Full Answer )
It depends on the offense. Ultimately, the captain has first and last word of what happens to you if arrested at sea; however, he will be answerable to his actions when he returns to land. Almost every cruise ship has a brig, or ship "jail" in which a person may be kept until he or she can be tur…ned in to the proper authorities. If the offender is considered a continued danger to passengers, the captain may elect to give custody to the authorities in the next port -- no matter what country you land in. From there you may be extradited to your country of orgin, or the country may decide to prosecute you there. For less serious offenses, the captain may choose to either detain you in the brig for the remainder of the voyage, allow you to pay a fine, or restrict you from leaving the ship until you can be turned over to the authorities in your country of origin.

Cruise lines do not often have ships that are not being used. When the heavy cruise season ends at one place in the world, it is usually just beginning in another.. Most ships do have a time every few years when they are in what is called "dry dock" when they make minor repairs or renovations. Dry …dock can be anywhere in the world, not necessarily in the port of origin, and can last anywhere from a couple of weeks to a year (depending on the extent of damage or how lavish the renovation is).. Otherwise, it is very unusual for a cruise ship to sit idle. When passengers leave from one cruise, the next set of passengers is on the boat in a matter of just a few hours. ( Full Answer )
No. You need specific travel insurance for that. Follow the link below for holiday insurance for a cruise holiday.
OMG EVERYTHING! You can go to the buffet, go to a restaurant, stay in your room, socialize, play games in the arcade, swim, go to the gym, if you're docked at land, you can leave the ship and explore, and SO much more. Cruise ships treat you like royalty. :)
Blades? I don't know..... but... most cruise ships are equipped with stabilizers that could be described as "blades" although, I think of them as wings. Look up ship's stabilization systems. This may be what you are thinking of.
dont get caught, there are plenty of places you can hide it anus vagina maybe
Well, it depends on the company. Pools with play structures and tubes are quite often included. Shows, buffet dinners, and sometimes gambling is available. Dances, music and lots of entertainment is included. And then there are tours at the ports of call.
Depends on where you leave from in Asia and where you land in Europe. Pick a place on each end and decide. The other question is to decide which one is faster? Do you know?
Your answer depends on the size and power of the cruise ship, andits capabilities to sail in polar waters -- with icebergs.
Most cruise liners have a cruising speed that ranges between 22 and31 knots. A cruising speed of 26 knots is about 30 miles per hour.
no not to the carabean but can go on cruise ship just might not be able to get off at port.
Once in a while. It always depends what ship you are on , which are weak ships.
No. Cruise ship speed is usually measured in knots - as in 20 knots top speed. To go 20 knots/hour is about like going 22 mph.
A cruise ship travels 1950 miles per trip. The ship makes a total of 4 stops, and the distance to the first stop is 460 miles. If the variable d stands for the distance left to travel after the first stop, which of the following units could apply to this variable?
I think you would need at least BTEC National Diploma 2, and if your more advanced maybe BTEC National Diploma 1 too :)
Basically much as any ship, the difference being the passenger accommodation and services necessary. It's still essentially a huge steel fabrication, with a lot of other materials and fittings pertinent to purpose.
This will vary based on the cruise ship and how fast it is going.Most cruise ships travel at the speed of 21 to 24 knots per hour. 1 knot = 1.15 mph. 21 knots is equal to 24.15 mph so it would take you approximately53 hours to travel 1280 miles.
It is a distinct possibilty that the warrant will appear onwatchlists while traveling by cruise ship.
SS France was a Compagnie GÃ©nÃ©rale Transatlantique (CGT, or French Line) ocean liner, constructed by the Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard at Saint-Nazaire, France, and put into service in February 1962. France was later purchased by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) in 1979, renamed SS Norw…ay and underwent significant modifications that better suited her for cruising duties. She was sold to be scrapped in 2006, and scrapping was completed in late 2008. Source: Wikipedia ( Full Answer )
It will be a close draw between Royal Caribbean International and Carnival Cruise line. Both are the big players in the Cruising industry as both have 22 ships (if you include Allure of the Seas). Although they have a very similar cruising concept they offer very different experiences onboard. If yo…u are considering booking any of them I suggest you do lot of research by reading the review because their older ships are so different from the new ones. If you count all cruise ships owned by both companies however, Carnival (who also owns AIDA Cruises, Costa, Cunard, P&O, Holland America, Ibero, Ocean Village, Princess and Seabourn) owns far more ships than Royal Caribbean (who also own Celebrity and Azamara).

Based on the activities and food services the best cruises to go on are: Royal Caribbean Norwegian Jewel Celebrity Millennium Carnival Princess Cruises

The most recent cruise ship to sink was the Costa Concordia off the Italian coast, January 14, 2012.
It's too soon to be certain of the cause, but the owners of the ship have claimed that the captain diverted from the preplanned course for the ship and moved too close to the land. I think it is to be scrapped. You can probably find out on cruisecritic.com to find out for sure.
The captain was being stupid and sailed too close to a rock, he thought he had missed it but the ship crashed into the part of the rock under the sea. The captain then abandoned the ship which is illegal. Also because the ship was over turned half the life boats were unreachable.
From what i could tell this accident happened when the captain ran aground on a bed of rocks. While the passengers were scrambling for their lives, the captain "accidentally" fell into a lifeboat and abandoned the site.
