This first is, I admit, a random pirate that we spotted in an elevator.
And this next pirate is Louis, who never made us walk the plank, but saw to it that we had great food every night:
Sarah is a total sweetheart. Every night she made Disney critters out of towells in our room. Sarah told me that she would be out to sea for about 5 or 6 months, and then would go home to Thailand to see her family for 2 months. Her older sister would then make for her whatever food she wanted. The staff members on ships work extremely long hours. I really liked talking to them, whenever I got a chance, hearing about their families, and asking about what it was like to work on the ship.
I'd read about life on a crew ship for another line, and was glad to hear that the workers on the Disney line tended to be very positive about how Disney treats them. Getting time off is very precious, however, especially if they got a chance to sleep.
