Dec 27, 2014Just before going on a Carnival Cruise for Christmas, my son in law gave me this book, Permanent Passenger. Oh, how I enjoyed reading it and learning much about how to get hired by Carnival. I powered forward to each page to find out more about the "everyday life" on board for the crew. I knew more about what was going on then most of the other passengers and felt I had an "heads up" on everyone else. I looked at the DJ and the Cruise Director different as well as the cruise itself. So so so so happy I read this book before going......Anyone going on a cruise should read it BEFORE they leave....I was able to speak to most of the crew (( on board )) cause I knew what to ask about what Carnival allows and does not allow. Lots of information on the games and how to win and yes our family won 3 different games, the food and what the crew ate and did not eat and where, how long they lived on a ship ( who shared with who ) and who got to see all the naked women and... More > why......WOW.... Changed the way I looked at any cruise line so a must read for anyone sailing......yay< Less
May 26, 2012As an ex-crew member myself, I thoroughly enjoyed Micha's book. Brought me back to some of the good times and some of the difficult times that we had onboard. No one ever believes the stories we tell, with some daring to say we fabricate the information; however, there is no way to make up some of this stuff. When boarding a ship, something strange happens, you just become someone else. You do things you would not dare do at home. You experience something that you had never experienced before and you take home memories of all sorts that leave you in awe. Sharing those times as Micha has done, shines a light on a life that will always be a mystery, and, we have resources that are unlimited. Enjoy the read, it is good fun.

Sep 27, 2011I purchased this book because I was curious about life aboard a cruise ship. While Micha's job had benefits not available to most of the crew, his story was very interesting, nonetheless, and offered glimpses of the lives of the rest of the crew. I enjoyed the book and will pass it along to my cruise loving brother.
