Real ships; Real assignments for qualified speakers

If you’ve been patient and read through the rest of this website, you may ask: “But is it real? What cruises can I get placed on?” We are aware of  needs going out months and even into next year! All classes of ships – Budget to All-Inclusive need speakers.  Once you are vetted and blessed as a cruise ship speaker (that’s where we help), you may get assignments like these. They may be taken already, but this page is to show you THEY ARE OUT THERE! Check back – we post them as we find out.

NOTE: If you have the ability to take short-notice trips, you are in high demand. Sometimes a speaker has to cancel (it happened to me after a motorcycle accident).

Her Husband Fell Off Cruise Ship on Honeymoon. Where’s She At?

The Quantum will offer many speaking opportunities.

The Quantum will offer many speaking opportunities.

10 years ago, George Smith IV fell off a cruise ship. Or so the story goes when told by his wife.

Says she. They were on their honeymoon. They were between Greece and Turkey.

He got drunk as a skunk. While smoking a cigar on the balcony, more than ashes went over the side.

He left a body-shaped blood stain on the canopy below, too. But we’re not sure how that happened.

Smith was 26 at the time.

Ten years later, the FBI has closed the case.

Jennifer has moved on. She remarried 4 years later. Has a kid. And she got a $1.1 million settlement from Royal Caribbean.

Meanwhile … Smith’s parents has offered $100K for information that would prove he was murdered. Arrest and conviction are in order.

There is a lot of other, ‘evidence.’

“A passenger in a neighboring room said he heard  men arguing on the Smiths’ balcony that night.

Another passenger claimed to hear furniture being moved.

Smith’s bride was later found passed out in a hallway.

The next morning passengers photographed a bloodstain on a lifeboat canopy beneath the couple’s balcony.”

And … there is a video going around that has a little bit too much bragging in it, “I told ya I was a gangsta.”

Meanwhile … in the Fantasy Bar you can hear today’s cruise ship lecturer talking, “Death at Sea… Mysteries Unsolved.”

Buy a 2nd Home Aboard a Cruise Ship for Less than $50K

How about a second home with an oceanfront view that changes year round?

The Marquette has already sold 42% of their offerings and the ship is not due out for another year and half.

Apartments on Cruise Ships

Apartments on Cruise Ships

Their apartments go from $327,000 to $1.2 million.

You can buy half ownership, full-ownership or 2 out of 12 month ownership for $54.6K.

The ship will navigate 5,500 miles of rivers and 1,100 miles of Intracostal Waterways.

This is cheaper than living in Silicon Valley!

Crystal Cruises will launch 2 new ships and 48 private residences!

Their offerings will be 600 – 4,000 square feet.

If you have to ask how much these cost, you can’t afford them. But it’d be nice to own. And you can bet the prices will go up. A great investment maybe?!

The luxurious World has 165 residences that go from $1M – $13M for a 6-bedroom penthouse suite. I’ll take two of them!

The average age of cruisers on the World is 64, and 1/3 of them are under 50!

Owners use the cruises for 2nd homes for a month or two or three each year. They then rent them out for the rest of the year. That makes sense!

I wonder why my wife never picks up! I think I’d like to buy one or more these. Wouldn’t you?
