Cruise ships get some unusual questions from their customers.
A sample collected by Celebrity Cruises and published by the
trade magazine Travel Weekly:

	Does the elevator go to the front of the ship?

	Why does the ship rock only when we are at sea?

	Does the ship generate its own electricity?

	Will I get wet if I go snorkeling?

	Does the crew sleep on board?

	Is there water all around the island?

	How do we know which photos are ours?

	What do you do with the ice carvings after they melt?
