    Cruise ships

    Hey ,I have another question.Does anyone know if any of the cruise ships would allow you to go on the ship for a tour?Never having set foot on one and always seeing them,I though this might be an interesting thing to do.Thanks.

    I have been on quite a few cruises, and i don't believe they let you on..due to security reasons...

    Let google be your friend. Unfortunately in this day and age it is the closest you will come to boarding a cruise ship unless you are a passenger or employee.

    There are probably at least a million photos of cruise ships and interiors all over the internet. I have a bunch here. I also have some videos of the Queen Mary II here. For a short time she was the largest cruise ship in the world.

    It would be nice if they just let you on to tour and see if you like the feel of the boat but you will have to settle for pictures and first hand accounts.....I prefer being on land....I feel safer there.

    I have toured two ships while they were docked here in Phila.
    One was the NCL Crown. the other was a Carnival Legend.

    A group of travel agents were promoting the ship.
    Maybe go to a local agent and ask what they can do.

    Touring was grand. We got to eat lunch at their buffets. and go around and see cabin categories.
    (On NCL we can go into staterooms that had balloons on them.
    One couple was not very happy that their cabin was on for the tour..
