Default Engine room tours?

We're planning our first cruise and one of things I would like to do is see the engines/engineering areas of the ship.

In May of 2004 when the QM2 was in New York I worked on the GE LM5000 gas turbine generators (they generate the ship's electrical power) and electric motors drive the ship. It was a thrill to be on the ship and work with the crew - I even met the Chief Engineer.

Is access like this something that is openly offered or do I ask around and get lucky?

Thanks -
