Disney cruises are unbearable except for the hot Eastern European slave labor they use.

All you'd have to do is say it's a ferry to Disney Island.

You could haul thousands of Disney simpletons out past the continental shelf and knock the pins out of the hinged bottom to dump them.  Pontoon sides, won't sink.

Come right back in, closing the bottom and pumping out on the way.

Appear at the dock the next day all shined up and ready to get the next guests on board.

Omni magazine had a short story called 'Marching Morons' a couple of decades ago. Similar.

The idea of a Disneyland that occasionally comes to you is actually quite clever. But I'm sure the local theme parks fight like hell over this.

It was published in 1951, in fact, by the criminally under-rememberd CM Kornbluth (who died far too young).

RaiderFanMikeP: Jaden Smith First of His Name: Disney cruises are unbearable except for the hot Eastern European slave labor they use.

/one started crying because "they have cameras everywhere on us" and apparently they sleep in steerage like Titanic

this is just  a ploy by all cruise staff to get you to increase their tip  the one on carnival basically said they are not allowed to even go above desk 3 and have to stay in the bowels of the ship even when its docked and she hasnt seen her family in years due to the big bad boat company keeping their jack boots on their necks.."    one of the other guys said she goes home twice a month and its all BS


Yeah, pretty much BS. Now, some crew whining is just to generate sympathy/better tips, but some is real. Food/Bev staff and housekeeping work like freakin dogs. They get pushed to the max that International Labor Law will allow. like, 14hr days, 6 days a week...the supervisors sometimes will even try to get away with getting more hours of their staff by not recording some hours here and there, but if they get caught, it's baaaad.  But, I knew cabin stewards that were making $6K a month, from a  $500/month base salary + tips (by comparison, after 3.5yrs, I was making $2750US/month as an Interactive Television & Digital Content/Signage Manager), so don't feel TOO bad about the poor crew members. Most of them are making 25-30x per month what they could make back in their home country...

Worked on ships for almost 4 years, and while it's certainly not luxury accommodations, crew are not sleeping 12 to a room in hammocks, prison style shower/toilet facilities, etc. 

Standard crew cabin are duos, enclosed bathroom (sink/shower/toilet), usually bunks but sometimes side-by-side beds.  TV, closet, desk, usually a small fridge, a small valuables safe for each occupant...

Certain departments have quad-rooms, 4 bunks, mainly aimed at shift schedules where 2 of the occupants will be working while the other two are sleeping. Very rare to see 6's or 8's on modern ships...

Manager cabins are a little more upscale. Single occupant, maybe 10-20% more square footage.

The higher up the food chain you get, the better your accommodation.  When you look at senior officers like Security Chief, Staff Captain, Captain, HR Manager, Chief Purser, Hotel Director, etc, their rooms are on par with mid-range guest accommodation.  The captain has a suite, complete with office, bedroom, living room, meeting room, small kitchenette...

BEGINCSB
I loved joining a new ship, because during the handover from my predecessor (only one person per ship to do my job), they put the newcomer in a guest cabin for the 7-10 days (usually one "cruise").  There was one girl, who I took over from 3 or 4 times in my 7 contracts, who always tried to say i should let her have the guest cabin for the handover, because the person she replaced did that to her. Complete BS, she was just a princess biatch who would basically hand me a single page of passwords and codes, and then fugger off for the entire handover. I'd see her the day I arrived and the day she left, and that was it. Useless coont.
ENDCSB
