Whenever the holidays hit, people head out to explore the world – and of course, party!
With that in mind, let’s look at the wacky and sordid adventures that await you when you hit the road. Maybe you want to go on a party cruise….

Travel To Excess!
Here are three books that blow the lid off out-of-control cruise ships, airlines and hotels – let’s go!
Cruise Confidential: A Hit Below the Waterline: Where the Crew Lives, Eats, Wars, and Parties. One Crazy Year Working on Cruise Ships by
Brian David Bruns
Before you go on your next (or your first) cruise, read what Amazon has to say about “Cruise Confidential”: Brian David Bruns spills the dirt — or in this case, the dirty water — on those romantic, fun-filled vacations at sea. His hilarious chronicle of the year he spent working for Carnival Cruise Lines takes readers down into the areas where the crew works and lives, leaving readers gasping with laughter as they’re assaulted nonstop with events that range from the absurd to the utterly bizarre.
Stewards fighting over food. Cutlery allowances and other nonsensical rules. What the crew calls those onboard (no, it’s not “passengers”). And of course, the sex.
An abundance of ready, willing, and able bodies eager for action on a vessel replete with nooks and crannies leads to love in some mighty strange, and seemingly impossible, places.
This is one entertaining look at life on a cruise ship, where everything and anything goes in pursuit of a good time!
Breezy, entertaining, and informative, “Cruise Confidential” is essential reading for those planning a cruise or for anyone who just needs a good laugh.

From the sea to the air, it’s time for a reality version of the classic book “Coffee, Tea or Me?”
This 1967 book was a fictionalized look at the love lives of two saucy Stewardesses! Now comes the reality:
Cruising Attitude: Tales of Crashpads, Crew Drama, and Crazy Passengers at 35,000 Feet by Heather Poole
Ever wonder what your flight attendant REALLY thinks? Well, wonder no more! Attendant turned Author Heather Poole offers a look at what it is like to work the not-so-friendly skies…
In her more than fifteen years as an airline flight attendant, Heather Poole has seen it all. She’s witnessed all manner of bad behavior at 35,000 feet and knows what it takes for a traveler to become the most hated passenger onboard.
The romantic vision of a first class flying experience is shattered quickly….Poole has slept in flight attendant crashpads in “Crew Gardens,” Queens—sharing small bedrooms crammed with bunk beds with a parade of attractive women who come and go at all hours, prompting suspicious neighbors to jump to the very worst conclusions.
She’s watched passengers and coworkers alike escorted off the planes by police. She can tell you why it’s a bad idea to fall for a pilot but can be a very good one (in her case) to date a business-class passenger.
Heather knows everything about flying in a post-9/11 world—and she knows what goes on behind the scenes, things the passengers would never dream.
Heather’s true stories in Cruising Attitude are surprising, hilarious, sometimes outrageously incredible—the very juiciest of “galley gossip” delightfully intermingled with the eye-opening, unforgettable chronicle of her fascinating life in the sky.
Talk About “Turn Down” Service!
If you don’t like to fly, just check into a nice Hotel and see what “turn down service” really means!
Hotel Babylon by Imogen Edwards-Jones
The manager of an exclusive boutique hotel (who shall remain nameless) exposes the low-life styles of the rich and famous. And that means a LOT of crazy stuffnhappenednin your hotel room right before you checked in!
The Author’s name is an alias in order to give real, sordid insight into a posh British hotel…
The anonymous author has encountered lavish drug parties, gorgeous call girls, naked guests falling out of windows, $9,000 bottles of wine, astronomical telephone porn bills, bathtubs of Evian, and on more than one occasion, dead sheep. And every dirty word of it is true.
This is a trawl through the decadence and debauchery of the ultimate service industry—where money not only talks, but gets guests the best room, the best service, and also entitles them to behave in any way they please.
This book was so successful in England that it spawned a hit TV series:
Amazon also has the blu-ray of the show if you’d rather watch than read!
Enjoy your look at the underbelly of luxury travel!
