I've been asked some on them once or twice. The only answer I can give is " Try it".

Once someone has tried it, most are hooked.

 This is wonderful!  We have been asked some of these so many times that we have some "smart aleck" answers.  Plus these happen to be real: 1) They showed the Titanic in the auditorium on our first cruise. 2) Pirates from the Texas Renaissance Festival sailed in garb on a cruise in January with us. 3). We carry a photo standing by a cruise ship railing to show how high they really are. Often ask if the person asking the question thinks the might fall over the railing in a shopping Mall.

 

Thanks for posting!

Yeah, I say the same thing to people.  Don't knock it unless you have tried it.  I do try to steer them away, though, from the short party cruises unless they are young couples who like to party.

They are all familiar... but I'm of the mind that the only stupid question is the one not asked.

#2) For some crazy reason, one or both of us used to watch Titanic (old and new versions) before a cruise. We went anyway.

 

#14) My first cruise ran into a hurricane, and that didn't stop me from being hooked.

Right! Who needs passengers who freak out just because the ship puts barbed wire all around the open deck areas when going through the Red Sea and the Suez Canal.  Yikes, they did this on my ship.  We saw nary a pirate, luckily. There were armed guards in towers spaced every so often carefully watching the surrounding areas.    A naval ship preceded us through the Suez Canal and we transited one by one.  It WAS an experience!

I think I like the "Hollywood" type pirates much better than any of the real deal. That must have been frightening at the time.

Well.... on the "only stupid question is the one not asked" theme.... the pirate question is making me laugh this morning.  That one is dumb except when sailing off the coast of Africa.
