When Sean Jenkins was given the opportunity of a life on the ocean waves, on board a beautiful cruise ship, he grasped it with both hands. Within a few weeks of day-dreaming of palm trees and white beaches, he was flying out to Alaska.
As you travel with Sean you get to sample what it was like to be in his shoes, seeing sights that as a young lad he had only ever seen in geography books. His stories are told from a crew member’s point of view — for Sean the best adventure stories came from below the posh decks. Sean writes, ‘inspiring someone to travel and see the world would mean everything to me, it’s given me an exciting life so thinking I could inspire someone to do the same is a fantastic feeling.’

Less like a book and more like a compilation of funny and touching letters from a friend--a friend who has a fabulous, globe-trotting job, that is! Sean's stories can be happy or sad but in delivering them, he gives us landlubbers a glimpse at what life at sea is like. It should be required reading for anyone considering a cruise ship position and a good choice for those who just want to live vicariously through his exploits. (NOTE: The MV Southern Cross story is alone worth the price!)
Sean takes the reader on an enjoyable trip around the world, sharing his experiences from his cruise ship staff member's perspective. His honesty and humour make this book really enjoyable, both qualities shining through. A good read to be recommended.
