Tales of a Cruise Ship
by Margaret Marsh

Margaret Marsh offers us a glimpse into the secret world of the cruise ship with her stories of life on board as a medical officer’s wife. Life in close proximity to the passengers and crew is revealed with all its ups and downs in these humorous tales

In Tales of a Cruise Ship, Margaret takes us to parts of a cruise ship never normally seen by passengers, giving us a unique insight into the cruising life. Taken from Margaret’s onboard journals (kept while her husband was working as a medical officer) the book introduces us to the characters who live, work and holiday aboard.

Margaret goes behind the doors marked Crew Only to show us a whole different cruising life; from the stewards and stewardesses who make the beds, to the chefs and waiters who cook and serve the meals, to the engine room boys who keep the ship moving. Elsewhere we greet the entertainment staff as they plan events to keep everyone amused and visit the bridge to meet the captain and officers who take the ship to its next destination.

Meanwhile Margaret’s husband, the ‘Doc’, hovers somewhere in between the crew and passengers – his home on board is the medical centre where his patients are the officers, crew and passengers. As the Doc’s wife, Margaret was able to sit back and observe the onboard interactions. Tales of a Cruise Ship is part memoir, part travel book and should appeal to the many thousands of passengers who enjoy cruising holidays every year.
