    Friendship boats

    Just an note regarding a recent trip:
    We were on the Friendship boats going back to the BCV from MGM and our captain (Doreen I think but I don't remember - I met her last year in October) started a trivia game onboard by asking questions. Of course I KNEW the answers and some because of your book! I even stumped her on a couple. She couldn't believe I was able to answer her questions, although I wasn't fully listening to the last question and she got me because I second guessed myself under the pressure of the whole boat waiting for me to answer! (Not good under pressure when I was in a relaxed HAPPY state!) Anyway she had never heard of Lou's book so I am buying another volume before I go back in October so I can give it to her. I noticed all of the Friendship boats this time trying to play more games during the rides where they didn't do much of that before. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Sounds great. I like boat trip a lot. Last month had a 24 hr cruise in Scandinavia, from Helsinki to Stockholm, the sea scenery was unbeatable.

    Re: Friendship boats

    We love taking the Friendship boats because of how friendly we've always found the "crews." We've joked that my Dad should retire and captain one since he'd have a captive audience for his terrible jokes

    Upon entering the theater, please move as far to the end of the row as possible.
    Stopping in the middle is distinctly unpatriotic.

    The captons on the boats have told storys about the 'old' Disney World it was better than just ridding the boat.
