Synopsis: EDITED, EXPANDED, AND UPDATED
2nd Edition released September 25, 2012

In this often hilarious, sometimes shocking, and always insightful book, the well-published travel and guidebook writer Joshua Kinser provides a behind-the-scenes exposé into what it is really like to work as a cruise ship crew member. The perfect book to read on your next cruise, Chronicles of a Cruise Ship Crew Member, goes below the waterline to explore the cramped, dirty and dimly lit crew areas on a revealing tour of the ship's underworld. Go where no passenger has gone before and learn what the crew eats, where they sleep, how they party, and finally understand why all of the officers on a cruise ship are Italian. Climb aboard an adventure on the high seas and witness the wonderful side of ship life where crew members have whirlwind escapades while traveling the world aboard a massive sailing city. Drawing from his experiences working as a musician aboard cruise ships for more than five years, Joshua tells the laugh-out-loud funny and also beautifully poignant story of what cruise ship crew members experience from the minute they first step onto a ship to the day they walk down that gangway for the last time.

Joshua Kinser is a writer and musician based in Chimney Rock, North Carolina. His addiction and passion for travel has led him to work at some of the coolest jobs in the world, which apart from working on cruise ships as a drummer include writing guidebooks, exploring National Parks as a back-country wildlife biology tech, and working as a travel writer for magazines and newspapers.

Joshua is the author of Florida Gulf Coast, 3rd Edition, a guidebook published by Moon Handbooks. He is the author of several hiking guidebooks to the southeast including Five Star Trails: Charlotte, NC. He has published over 200 articles online for websites such as Ehow, and USA Today Travel. He has worked as a staff writer for Gannet with the Pensacola News Journal, and has contributed to publications that include Sail Magazine, Bonito and Estero Magazine, and Times of the Islands.

As a back-country biology tech he has worked in Florida, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Glacier National Park in Montana, and in the National Forest lands surrounding Yosemite National Park in California. He also works as a professional drummer performing with wedding bands and original acts around the southeast United States. Working as a musician aboard cruise ships, and as a travel writer have taken him all over the world including the Caribbean, Australia, China, Japan, and New Zealand.
