The very first cruise i went on in 02 (Canival) had a place asking if you were a nurse or a doctor. No other occupations were mentioned. I am a nurse too and often wondered why they asked that. I have been on two CCL & one RCCL since and not been asked that again??

While on the Oosterdam recently, one of our table mates, an MD, had to assist with an elderly gentleman who collapsed in the gym. He probably saved the mans life, and was offered nothing in return, except a kind word. Not even dinner with the Captain!!
