Default Favorite Onboard Announcement

watching CNN today and seeing all the snow and cold in the north it reminds me of being on a cruise on a sea day at noon on the lido deck when the Captain makes his announcement of the ship's position and then the CD announces what the weather is in all the cold weather cities that are represented onboard and listening to the applause from happy cruisers that are on the boat

or if you are on a ship with the huge outdoor LCD screen when CNN shows the bad weather while you are sunbathing and having the drink of the day and lunch from the buffet listening to island music

to paraphrase the Visa commercial...priceless

I don't have a favorite but my least favorite was something to this effect:

All those who are experiencing queasy stomachs head for sick bay-99% of the passengers on the cruise .

My favorite announcement would be that the ship has arrived at a port that I have anticipated going to!

Due to the fact that we were forced to miss our port of Ocho Rios, we've decided that everyone aboard will be given $500 O.B.C. Enjoy your cruise!
