Cruise Crossword Puzzle
 
Custom Crossword Puzzle

Hey all - I created this all just for you. Go to the page and print out the puzzle. (that's the only way it will work unless you want to use a sharpie on your computer monitor - but we don't recommend that).

Enjoy!

By the way - If you want me to do more of these - send me more clues and as soon as I have enough I will create a new crossword.

I love crossword's, but this one is impossible (for me) to print. I only get
"Click here to print this page" :(.

Any suggestions?

Paul Motter July 25th, 2010 09:42 PM

I guess it is possible you may have a setting NOT to print images when you print web pages. The lines of the boxes are actually images - other wise I really don't know.

You could do a screen shot and print it as a picture. Or you could just take a piece of paper and kind of write the answers down in a rough matrix.

Try this - go to the puzzle and hit "ALT+PRTSCRN" and then open Microsoft Paint and do "Edit >> Paste" You will see a new picture appear. So print that.

I'm game for a crossword puzzle anytime, but all I got on the print page was a list of clues and a scattering of numbers - no lines or boxes, nothing that looks like a crossword...
I guess I could just answer the questions....

Sorry - but I think I figured out a solution - not sure how long it will last but we'll see.

Mike M July 26th, 2010 12:12 AM

Worked fine for me. Now I just have to figure out the questions. Hint: Don't use a pen. :D

Take care,
Mike

Floridanamaw July 27th, 2010 04:42 PM

You going to give us the answers? :)

Paul Motter July 27th, 2010 05:26 PM

I WILL GIVE YOU A REALLY BIG HINT...


Many of the answers are directly from this list:

Cruise Glossary; definition of cruising terms, common cruise word definition

If you fill these in you should get the rest.

Thanks for doing this. Next time I will work on making the clues more "clever" (this was my first stab at this).

rollerdonna July 27th, 2010 05:46 PM

OK, the "crossword configuration finally came through and printed out OK.
Still working on it...
Thanks for making it Paul!

Boy, you are a smart cookie! Bruce was able to print it fine,also....It's amazing how one's mind turns to sludge......you know the word, you jusy can't spit it out:) Hope more will come!

Donna July 27th, 2010 07:24 PM

Oh, Thank you Paul,
Printing out all the words/definitions, should help a lot....Was having lots of problems...

Paul Motter July 27th, 2010 07:35 PM

OK, maybe the problem is that I do a LOT of crossword puzzles. I do the ones in airplane magazines in ink and rarely cannot finish one within a 1/2 hour.

Also - these are all cruise words, but I think missing all the other words makes it harder because you don't have so many letters to help you get new words.

Another hint - there are a lot of combined words like "keycard" and "M*****drill"

ready2gonow July 27th, 2010 11:08 PM

Thanks, Paul! I have been out of town, and this is the first chance I have had to print the puzzle. Tomorrow I'll tackleit!

Donna July 28th, 2010 10:03 AM

I need a few clues....How about the dishwater for one?

Trip July 28th, 2010 01:02 PM

graywater I thought.....

Donna July 28th, 2010 05:38 PM

Thanks Trip,
That fit!

I have more that I need help on:

Affinity sailing
front of the keel
cruise over land
dining choice
Loyalty program
Self-contained propellar
Propellar shaft
Away from wind



ToddDH July 28th, 2010 06:26 PM

Donna,

Front of the keel. Hmmmmmm..........I betcha' "forefoot" would work.

Todd

Mike M July 28th, 2010 06:31 PM

bulbousbow

Floridanamaw July 28th, 2010 07:08 PM

I am down to 5 that I can't answer. Affinity sailing, cruise over land, dining choices, ship cafeteria and local port expert. Any ideas?

Donna July 28th, 2010 07:22 PM

Todd,
Forefoot doesn't fit, needs 10 letters starting with a t....

Donna July 28th, 2010 07:23 PM

Florida,
Local port expert is pilot...

ToddDH July 28th, 2010 07:31 PM

Sorry Donna, I tried. :(

Todd

Donna July 28th, 2010 08:56 PM

Thanks Todd,
Nice try...its actually 4 letters, second a l and the 4th an e...??

Mike M July 28th, 2010 09:13 PM

Bulbousbow is the answer: 5: Down is Busboy and works with 3 down.

Take care,
Mike

Mike M July 28th, 2010 09:34 PM

The only one I have left is 44 across. Exposed to wond. What's "wond"?

Take care,
Mike

ToddDH July 28th, 2010 09:38 PM

Mike,

FOUL!

I believe I'm correct in saying that all ships have a forefoot..........all ships don't have bulbuous bows, I even dare say there may be even a few old cruiseships out there that don't as well! ;-) LOL

Todd,

You may be correct but bulbousbow and busboy work. :D

Then again, I can't think of a cruise ship that doesn't have a bulbous bow.

Take care,
Mike

Donna July 29th, 2010 04:33 AM

Thanks Mike,
Those did work...

As for 44 across, should read exposed to wind....windward
