The Cruising Demographic

Cruise ship lecturers are not actors. But they could/should be.

A good story comes to life. The listeners can see the story being acted out in front of them.

A good speaker can tell when they are just mouthing words as opposed to the words come bubbling or boiling out because of what is going on in the story being told.

Twain said something along the lines, “Don’t tell me the lady screamed. Bring her on the stage and let her scream!” That’s powerful.
