    (A cruise ship passenger approaches me at the purser’s main guest services desk.)

    Passenger:“This sure is a big boat. I’ve been lost three times already today. Do you have a map?”

    Me:“Yes sir, here you are. There are also maps and signs posted throughout the ship on the walls, and you can always ask our staff or crew for directions until you get the feel for the layout.”

    Passenger:“Oh, you’ve got such wonderful crew! I don’t ask directions. I don’t want to seem stupid. How many people fit on this boat?”

    Me:“We can carry just about 5,000 passengers and have a crew of nearly 2,000 people.”

    Passenger:“And do the crew stay on board with us?”
