Want to speak to 100,000 people on a mega-ship?

*** FREE webinar on Speaking on Cruise ships Thurs Dec 19 ***

Register here

Currently, the biggest ships in the world are under the Royal Caribbean banner – the Allure of the Seas and the Oasis of the Seas, Oasis has almost 7,000 passengers, 2,394 Crew,  7 neighborhoods and 25 dining options. Huge, right? That is bigger than most towns in Iowa!!

Well, get ready. How about a ship that is a mile long. That is no typo… ONE mile long.

The Freedom ship.

The Freedom ship.

Plans for the floating platform were recently released. It would hold 100,000 people, with half being permanent residents. Of course, it will have a mall, schools, cinemas, etc. The ship would circle the earth every two years. It will be in ports 70% of the time and at sea the remainder.

So where did this crazy idea come from?  A rich guy named Norman Nixon. After the 2008 financial crisis hit, he gave up. He’s dead now, but his former business partners are looking at doing it. So much for going through the Panama Canal. The locks are 1,000 feet long now; going to 1,800 in 2015. We shall see.

But just think, if you were giving talks, you could live there!!

Cruise Ship Lecturers Wanted with Expertise on Dr. Seuss

Norwegian Getaway

A Boat in the Moat

Carnival Cruises announced that they have an exclusive partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises.

But what do you know about Dr. Seuss? What is his real name?

Theodor S. Geisel is the answer.

When I read this I immediately thought that Carnival may soon be looking for special interest lecturers with an expertise in this field. Not necessarily just about Dr. Seuss, but may comics or children’s books in general.

Is that you? Would you like to take a cruise?

The Boat in the Moat.

The boat in the moat

Is a ship that’s hip

With a boy named Pip

And a girl with a tote.

Up the ramp

When it’s damp.

Into the sun

For a day of fun.

The boat in the moat

Doesn’t gloat.

But it does float

And the director’s a goat

That writes a note

Which when he is done was wrote

on a boat in a moat.

Okay, I get it. I am not Dr. Seuss.

But I do know some things about children’s books. But not enough to be a special interest speaker on the topic.

But maybe you are that expert.
