On the high seas

I’ve worked for a major cruise line for the better part of 9 years so far. And every year has brought with it an urge to do more. They are probably going to have to kick me off of here to get me to leave. I enjoy it way too much!

It’s this very diverse workplace filled with people from different countries, different races and different religious beliefs all tied together for a common goal, and that is to ensure that our guests have the vacation of a lifetime. It’s amazing to see how all of it comes together every single cruise, day-in and day-out, 365 days a year. A well oiled machine for the most part.

I think we all have the same character when it comes to working for a cruise line. A group of happy-go-lucky people wanting to see the world. And that’s exactly what we do. I had done a lot of it prior to this courtesy of the US Navy. Except the ships were haze grey and the food was not nearly as good. But the enjoyment of travel was there. I think it has allowed me to grow in many different ways. Ways that most people are not exposed to very much.

Samuel Clemens, Mark Twain, said it best –

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquire by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.- Mark Twain

I hope that by starting this blog and telling my stories will allow you to get a better understanding of the world around us. Setting a spark in you, an urge, a desire to possibly get out and see what all travelers see. The world …

Go! … and be adventurous!- Lance Schuler

I have worked in the Cruise industry for over 10 years. The focus of my position onboard has been to provide my guests with Region and Port information for the areas we sail in. I've been to over 135 different countries and have extensive and detail knowledge of all the ports around the world. I hope that this site gives you insight, information and the tool to make your cruise a once in a lifetime memory. If you have any questions that we can answer here on From A Teak Deck, reach out to us and we'll get back to you as soon as we can and share the information with others.
