Default How many port hole are there on a cruise ship?

I will never understand why people go an arms length to document every little detail and wrong doing on a cruise ship. Who cares! You’re on vacation. If you don't know how to ignore crazy people or just be concerned what you’re doing, you’re not going to enjoy your cruise. Lets face it, your not going to change anything or anyone on a seven day cruise and complaining like little children won't solve anything.

My God you don't understand the title? David you being a citizen of the UK must gather something of the title. I took it from the Beatles, A day in the life, where Lennon ask the question, “How many holes does it take to fill the Albert Hall”. Lennon is telling us that we should not spend time worrying about thing that have no bearing on our own lives. Getting stressed over ridicules details is only going to make you mad as a hatter. You could not even see though this simple interpretation. I am not a teacher, yet. In two more years I will complete my masters in political science and history and then teach high school. I think some of you need to take a class in reading and interpretation. I am starting to gather that people only believe the clear-cut spoon fed facts delivered to us by the media, and put aside any practical knowledge or opinion. The only real truth lies with reading and re-reading primary source documents. The whole reason for becoming teacher is for students to draw their own thoughts and conclusions without relying on the biased interpretation handed to us by political motivated groups. As far as cruising, I don’t care about kids running wild, grumpy seniors, drunken adults, and the number of messages during a cruise. After all, cruises are full of ordinary people looking forward to releasing a lot of pressure when they are on vacation. Unless they are vomiting on my table during the main course, I will not stress these little things.

And sonny dont come preaching to me about the Beatles and your interpretation of lyrics....you got it so wrong re the Albert Hall statement from John Lennon, I'm laughing so much I nearly wet myself,,,,you dont have a clue!

Regarding what Lennon was actually referring to, you missed. He was talking about people with money, power and ability to change peoples lifes at a snap of a finger.

All of which frequented the Albert Hall in posh events,,,so your hole is actually as***oles in his mind, but you could not say that back then, it was disguised.

Get back <g> Sonny

Hey David - stop holding it in - that causes ulcers? Much of the Beatles music was entirely nonsensical - but most of the sixties decade was - between "Purple Haze" and Viet Nam" how could it have been otherwise? If Family Man is really a teacher - I pity his students. "Confrontational" is not a valued trait in educators. "We don't need no education - we don't need no thought control - no dark sarcasms in the classroom - teacher leave us kids alone." I'm off to eat my pudding now - after I eat my meat of course :o) BTW - how many portholes are on a ship? TTFN Jennifer

That was another group, Pink something or have I went into scenile breakdown, and the rest of the world does not understand me<g>.

Regarding portholes, do people realise that 3/4's of the portholes available on any given ship, make up 75% of those available, thats maths

Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" - I still have the album - did I say album - not 8 track, not casette, not cd, not on my MP3 Player, but Album - am I old or what? Portholes - 6 of one, half a dozen of the other. TTFN Jenifer

Hazelson........This one's for you!

Louie, louie, oh no, me gotta go.
Louie, louie, oh no, me gotta go.

A fine young girl, she wait for me.
Me catch the ship across the sea.
Me sail the ship all alone.
I never think I'll make it home.

Chorus

Three days and nights we sail the sea.
Me think of girl constantly.
On the ship, me dream she there.
Me smell the flowers in her hair.

Chorus

Me see Jamaican moon above.
It won't be long me see me love.
Me take her in my arms and then
I tell her I never leave again.

Repeat chorus until someone tells you to shut up!


Boy, now I finally see that all these years I was singing it wrong!
Come to think of it, I can't even remember what I was signing then.
Just goes back to being in that state of mind I guess.........>>

Thanks Momx4 - The lyrics seem so tame - now what was all the fuss about way back when? Wouldn't it be nice to have those "peaceful" times back again? Looking back on the 60's and comparing to now - I guess things are pretty much the same - war, starvation, high crime. Oh well - it's good to be older (though not much wiser!) At least now we can afford to cruise on a ship - not the "other" way lol. TTFN Jennifer

Those are the G-rated words to Louie. The real words can not be put on this thread. i think that the family man will make a great teacher. He has the beast in the belly thing going on. It's what it takes these days. But, You have to work on those people skills. You have to deal with the parents too. That's where the problem is. Good luck to you.

Now on subject......

I get really sad when people come on here, and talk about all the bad times they had. We made our trip a good one. We laughed at the complainers, smiled when something wasn't right, but for the most part we had fun. ( Pina Colades helped too.) I don't drink but those babies made anything better. lol

Keep debating guys. I told my Doubleday book club this morning, I didn't need books this month, I have cruisemate gripes. lol

I remember singing it, and my mom wanted to know what I was doing. I told her and she said you can't say that. I told her why they are just talking about playing ball. She said no they wanted to know if you wanted to ball. I asked, she told me to wait a couple of years and she would tell me. She also asked me to pick another song. lol Several years later There was a big todo about the song, and the new words came out.

Richard Berry wrote it once and the Kingsmen recorded it once, in 1963. The lyrics posted earlier are right:

"Louie Louie, me gotta go. Louie Louie, me gotta go. A fine little girl, she wait for me. Me catch the ship across the sea. I sailed the ship all alone. I never think I'll make it home. Louie Louie, me gotta go . Three nights and days we sailed the sea. Me think of girl constantly. On the ship, I dream she there. I smell the rose in her hair. Louie Louie, me gotta go. Me see Jamaican moon above. It won't be long me see me love. Me take her in my arms and then I tell her I never leave again. Louie Louie, me gotta go." (By Richard Berry. Copyright 1957-1963 by Limax Music Inc.)

All the so-called "dirty" versions are figments of peoples' imaginations.

Cougar, you are right, the song I was thinking about wasn't Louie, Louie. It was Devil With The Blue Dress On. I'm sorry for misspeaking.

Ok - now I really need to find the x-rated lyrics - after all I'm over 21 - way over 21. I was a child of the 60's - who produced a child of the 60's - not bad for a Sunday school teacher lol. TTFN Jennifer

Cougar - that sounds more like it - there has been a lot of fuss about those lyrics over the years. Funny, compared to the rap lyrics of today it's almost tame.Thanks for posting TTFN Jennifer
