Had to be Kuki asking the Captain if they caught the fish they served in the dining room.

On my cruise this past week the cruise director (Simon Pedergrast) said a woman asked " will these elevators take me to the front of the ship?"

LuvCruising,

Jeff Arpin had the same line on the Navigator a few weeks ago! (about the elevators). Makes me wonder if the cruise directors are givin "scripts" or maybe they share material!

Actually, just this last week Anne Campbell shared with me an e-mail she received from one of our readers.. TRUE story.

The person writing was inquiring if Anne would know if there might be a 7 day repositioning cruise leaving from NY, and ending in Las Vegas.

I guess the best I ever heard was the woman on an elevator complaining/questioning why she hadn't been told in advance it would rain on her tour of the RAIN FOREST.

Kuki, am I to understand that cruise ships don't go to Las Vegas? The guy I bought the cruise tickets from in Time Square assured me that there was a pier at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. He also assured me that the Rollecks watch I bought for $5.00 was genuine and was being discounted only because someone at the factory mispelled Rolex.

The best one was on our first Alaska cruise. A lady asked the naturalist why somebody doesn't scrub the glaciers so that they would be nice and clean and very white for the tourists. I almost lost it.

On another board someone asked if they could bring and use their skateboard on the ship.

I wish I had bookmarked where I read this....

One woman asked if they would be allowed off the ship while on a sea day.

That left me giggling the whole afternoon.

I always get a kick out of the questions which would require answers specific to the particular ship being sailed on or the port of embarkation. However, the questioners fail to give any info as to the name of the ship, the identity of the cruise line or the port from which they're sailing. Unbelievable! Example: "We'll be cruising to the Caribbean in January. Are we allowed to bring sodas on the ship? How can we get an upgrade? Which pier do we leave from, and how much will the parking cost?"

The Ten Most Common (Semi-Stupid) Questions are all over the place. "Does the crew sleep on shore?"

The next teir is "I have heard ... " there are a lot of common misconceptions out there that are often "heard" wrong and taken as gospel.. Even the people with true "expert" status here on CM can't have global knowledge on a day-to-day basis.

But the stupidest is, when the Captain is doing is meet and greet party, are those who ask, "Who's drving the boat?"

Some pople want to know which will be the "good" side of a particular ship in a particular harbor. The only person who knows that is the Harbor Master.

This thread should help put the timeworn adage "There is no such thing as a stupid question" out to pasture.

How about the guy who was mad before the ship even sailed because he paid for an balcony cabin and the only view he had from his balcony was the parking lot.
