4. What is the navigators *balls* (ok no, its not what some of you are thinking *G*)

5. We all know the Bermuda triangle..where are the 2 other areas of water near/in the US that is also known for many vessels sinking/missing?

Easy:

1. FLAGS, a vessel flying a flag that is red on one 1/2 and white on the other, divided by a vertical line, has who/what onboard? Pilot onboard

2. Flags, a vessel entering port, flying a all yellow flag means want? Port request/Permission to use the port

3. What is a sea anchor? This is found mostly on small boats/lifeboats. intended to slow the boat and keep it from broaching in the current

4. What types of flares are found in lifeboats? handheld red flares and small red rockets

5. What 2 items are found attached to a lifevest? whistle and strobe light

6. What is a swell a vs a wave? swells are "wind waves", slower, flatter and further apart. waves are taller and closer together


Harder:

1. What is the *BELLBOOK*? ship's log... records ships movements

2 What is a magnetic compass? when the compass needle is pointing to north on a magnetic compass, what is it pointing to? a compass that interacts with the earth's magnetic field. when the needle is pointing north, it is pointing to the earth's magnetis north pole.

3. Related to a compass, what is deviation? and what is variation? deviation is an error caused by the surroundings (iron, steel etc). Variation is the difference between true north and magnetic north

4. What is the navigators *balls* (ok no, its not what some of you are thinking *G*) sun and stars

5. We all know the Bermuda triangle..where are the 2 other areas of water near/in the US that is also known for many vessels sinking/missing? Not a clue...

6. What is the difference between a criuse ship and a ocean liner? Ocean liners were built for speed and stability while offering comfort. They were for transportation not vacation. The hulls were taller and thicker and usually had a more promenant bow rake. Cruise ships are floating resorts and were built to entertain as the move the passengers from place to place.



DCL/Cruise line History :

1. What was the last steam powered side wheeler to operate on the hudson river? A. Hamilton (had to look it up)

2. Which sister ship to the titanic struck and sank what *lightship* in heavy fog? Nantucket

3. What is the name of the oldest cruise ship operating now?,her name now and then? and what was she famous for? MS Marco Polo? Originally named MS Alexandr Pushkin. Quarantined in Scotland for Norovirus (had to look that up)

4. Who started NCL and Carnival lines? Ted Arison

5. Why is the design and decor of the DCL ships known as classic? DCL ships are the only ships built with more than 1 funnel in the last 50+ years. They also feature the black hull/white superstructure color scheme like the great ocean liners all had. Most modern cruise ships feature a white on white paint scheme. They also have art deco/art nouveau interiors and lack the 5 deck high atriums that the modern cruisers have. The 3 deck tall lobby is a more intimate space.

Easy:

1. FLAGS, a vessel flying a flag that is red on one 1/2 and white on the other, divided by a vertical line, has who/what onboard? Pilot onboard

2. Flags, a vessel entering port, flying a all yellow flag means want? Port request/Permission to use the port

3. What is a sea anchor? This is found mostly on small boats/lifeboats. intended to slow the boat and keep it from broaching in the current
It's USUALLY a canvas or equivalent cone-shape that is used as a drogue for the above purposes. In emergency, it can be anything at the end of a line to provide drag to accomplish the same ends.

4. What types of flares are found in lifeboats? handheld red flares and small red rockets


5. What 2 items are found attached to a lifevest? whistle and strobe light

6. What is a swell a vs a wave? swells are "wind waves", slower, flatter and further apart. waves are taller and closer together


Harder:

1. What is the *BELLBOOK*? ship's log... records ships movements

2 What is a magnetic compass? when the compass needle is pointing to north on a magnetic compass, what is it pointing to? a compass that interacts with the earth's magnetic field. when the needle is pointing north, it is pointing to the earth's magnetis north pole.

3. Related to a compass, what is deviation? and what is variation? deviation is an error caused by the surroundings (iron, steel etc). Variation is the difference between true north and magnetic north

4. What is the navigators *balls* (ok no, its not what some of you are thinking *G*) sun and stars
or the iron spheres on either side of the binnacle (post) where the ship's compass is mounted. They are there to cancel out the effects of the ships outside magnetic fields that would affect the compass

5. We all know the Bermuda triangle..where are the 2 other areas of water near/in the US that is also known for many vessels sinking/missing? Not a clue...
The only one I'm aware of would be the "Michigan Triangle", which refers to the middle of Lake Michigan. Not as many documented losses as the Bermuda, or Devil's, Triangle.

6. What is the difference between a criuse ship and a ocean liner? Ocean liners were built for speed and stability while offering comfort. They were for transportation not vacation. The hulls were taller and thicker and usually had a more promenant bow rake. Cruise ships are floating resorts and were built to entertain as the move the passengers from place to place.



DCL/Cruise line History :

1. What was the last steam powered side wheeler to operate on the hudson river? A. Hamilton (had to look it up)

2. Which sister ship to the titanic struck and sank what *lightship* in heavy fog? Nantucket
The RMS Olympic, (the first of the three of her White Star Lines class) struck and sank the LV Nantucket, in the New York approach lanes, on May 15, 1934. It resulted in 7 of the 11 crew aboard the Nantucket perishing
Oh, before you ask, the third was the Britannic (originally to be the Gigantic, but re-named after the Titanic sinking) which was requisitioned and converted to His Majesty's Hospital Ship (HMHS) Britannic in 1915, and never went into passenger service, as she sank after being torpedoed or striking a mine in November 1916 off the Greek island of Kea, and she remains there in 400 feet of water

3. What is the name of the oldest cruise ship operating now?,her name now and then? and what was she famous for? MS Marco Polo? Originally named MS Alexandr Pushkin. Quarantined in Scotland for Norovirus (had to look that up)

4. Who started NCL and Carnival lines? Ted Arison
Read "Devils On The Deep Blue Sea by Kristoffer Garin for a fascinating account of this, and the modern-era "cruise" industry

5. Why is the design and decor of the DCL ships known as classic? DCL ships are the only ships built with more than 1 funnel in the last 50+ years. They also feature the black hull/white superstructure color scheme like the great ocean liners all had. Most modern cruise ships feature a white on white paint scheme.

Well folks here we go again!.

As before my answers are the ones I feel are the most commonly held as correct. However as anything in Nautical world, there maybe different terms/answers and old sea stories come in various forms.

I am happy to hear anyones answers!:thumbsup2

Easy:

1. FLAGS, a vessel flying a flag that is red on one 1/2 and white on the other, divided by a vertical line, has who/what onboard?

We got this one.......Pilot onboard

2. Flags, a vessel entering port, flying a all yellow flag means want?

8Free Pratgue, meaing my vessel is free of disease and request to enter the port. Today it meansmore that the vessel has not cleared goverment formalities.IE Customs, etc.

3. What is a sea anchor? This is found mostly on small boats/lifeboats.

, The canvas cones are used to drag in the water and keep the bow of a small boat or lifeboat into the sea and help keep it from broaching/floading.

4. What types of flares are found in lifeboats?


Yes indeed, hand held red flares and rocket parachut flares.

5. What 2 items are found attached to a lifevest?

agin!....your right whistle and light

6. What is a swell a vs a wave?

OK....basicly you got it....swells are long seteady waves spaced out and biult up soly depending on current and wind.


Harder:

1. What is the *BELLBOOK*?

Well this one is a older thing today..the bellbook was kept both on the Bridge and in the engine room on the operating plaform and hand recorded the order of engine speed and direction from the bridge and the enginerooms response. Today its all recorded in the black boxes. Some ships may still do a hand writtine bellbook or have a paper chart recording it



2 What is a magnetic compass? when the compass needle is pointing to north on a magnetic compass, what is it pointing to?

OK.yes your right

3. Related to a compass, what is deviation? and what is variation?

Again your right

4. What is the navigators *balls* (ok no, its not what some of you are thinking *G*)

I though I had you on this one, your right......or the iron spheres on either side of the binnacle (post) where the ship's compass is mounted. They are there to cancel out the effects of the ships outside magnetic fields that would affect the compass

.

5. We all know the Bermuda triangle..where are the 2 other areas of water near/in the US that is also known for many vessels sinking/missing?

Yes Lake Michigan and in Alaska, the SE part of the Bering Sea, where the Dangerous catch guys do there crab fishing!

6. What is the difference between a criuse ship and a ocean liner?

Whose your Mickey.......excellent way to put it.........Ocean liners were built for speed and stability while offering comfort. They were for transportation not vacation. The hulls were taller and thicker and usually had a more promenant bow rake. Cruise ships are floating resorts and were built to entertain as the move the passengers from place to place.





DCL/Cruise line History :

1. What was the last steam powered side wheeler to operate on the hudson river?

Again.I am surprized!........yes the Alexander Hamilton.as I kid actually rode her once up to Bear Mountain

2. Which sister ship to the titanic struck and sank what *lightship* in heavy fog?

.you got it right on the money Disdel.........The RMS Olympic, (the first of the three of her White Star Lines class) struck and sank the LV Nantucket, in the New York approach lanes, on May 15, 1934. It resulted in 7 of the 11 crew aboard the Nantucket perishing
Oh, before you ask, the third was the Britannic (originally to be the Gigantic, but re-named after the Titanic sinking) which was requisitioned and converted to His Majesty's Hospital Ship (HMHS) Britannic in 1915, and never went into passenger service, as she sank after being torpedoed or striking a mine in November 1916 off the Greek island of Kea, and she remains there in 400 feet of water



3. What is the name of the oldest cruise ship operating now?,her name now and then? and what was she famous for?

.my answer is the STockholm of SAL, she is operating now (although greatly changed)...as the Athena

4. Who started NCL and Carnival lines?

Ted Arison it is!

5. Why is the design and decor of the DCL ships known as classic?

Good answer Whose your Mickey..........DCL ships are the only ships built with more than 1 funnel in the last 50+ years. They also feature the black hull/white superstructure color scheme like the great ocean liners all had. Most modern cruise ships feature a white on white paint scheme. They also have art deco/art nouveau interiors and lack the 5 deck high atriums that the modern cruisers have. The 3 deck tall lobby is a more intimate space.

I would add that most passinger ships today are IMHO.more like Las Vegas guddy buses/boxes afloat. Excpet for Cunard and to a leaster degree HAL.

Thats is Sierra/Oscar/Serria..or *I am in Distress*, *save our Ship or Save our souls*

2. What is the Disney legend regarding how the Classic vessels were named?

well, I read this awhile ago...........seems there was a informal poll amde, with Disney asking about peoples opinon on what would be the best names for the first 2 vessels!

The results had *Walt Disney* first and *Wonder* the 2nd. Seems Disney decided it was to easy or the family didn't want the ship named *Walt Disney*........One lady heard about this and sent another email saying.*If you don't want to name the ship after Walt, then name it after what he created........Magic...

Now I can't prove this story as true,but I like it!

3. What is the Disney legend on how the Black/blue hull paint color mix came about?

Maria fan 22.you had my version of events.........I beleive it as it just seems like somthing Disney would do!:cool1:



*The execs were looking for a better looking black to not match Holland and to not seem so sinister and a lady named Monica came tom work in a dress that was a "midnight blue" 85% Black and 15% blue and the execs likes the color and used it. *



4. On what Ship did Walt and his family take across the atlantic, when on vacation in Europe?

Your right he did go on a trip on the Rex..but I was thinking of the family trip on the orginial *Queen Elizabeth*... I dont think he did the Muaritania.

5. Where is the Steering engine room?

Right on top of the rudder posts.....on the DCL ships very far aft around deck 3, the rudder posts are turned by means of electric motors and hydualic rams

6. What type of charts does DCL vessel use?

You all nailed this one, electronic by over lay or with in the radar screen and back up paper.

7. Is the berth that the DCL vessels tie up to in PC, a dock or a Pier?

With ships a dock is usually right on the waterfrontage running lengthwise. A pier is a land mass or structure that extends perpencular into the water.....

8. What is the material that the mooring lines of the DCL vessels are made of?

Nylon, Darcon and polyethylene

9. What type of weave is used on the DCL vessels mooring lines?

Ahhh....I got you folks here......braided and double strand braided.

10. Where are the Garboard strakes? (or on Steel ships, Garboard plates?)

You all nailed this one, right next to the keel is correct

11. What type of Merchant dry cargo vessels made in WWII had the problem of breaking in two, while as sea and even while tied to a dock?

Yeap!.Liberties....They solved the problem by riveting a heavy steel plate, horizontally along the upper part of the hull plating, port and starboard.

12. You are on the bow departing PC, what would you hope to see swimming in the water to bring luck to the voyage?

Dolpinns and porposes.I never heard Manities.but why not!:thumbsup2

13. WDW...How many steam powered side wheeler did bay lake and the 7 seas lagoon have?

There were 2, the Southern Seas and the Ports of Call. Those 2 were the first steam powered walking beam engines built in 80 years. There was another Southern Seas after the first was layed up/scrapped.......also named the Southern Seas, but it was actually diesel powered.

14. What type of fuel does the DCL vessels run on at sea?

Heavy 6 fuel......good old black oil!

15. What does the term *skool to the Captians cat * mean?

......When doing some heavy drinking/partying as sea and everything has been toasted that can be,there is always 1 toast more to be made...*Skool (toast) to the Captains Cat*!.........

Enjoy:

DCL related.
1. The Magic and Wonder are both of the same class. Most know that the bow (front or pointy end as my wife would say) was built in 1 yard, and the stern (back or round end) in another about 100 miles away. Where is the seam on the Magic?
2. The Wonder has a seam in the same place. Whats the difference?
3. What is different about the design process of the Magic Class, vs the Dream Class?
4. What other cartoon characters, took over the Big Red boat, after the Disney contract expired?

I love the pilot process!!! Everytime we leave Port Canaveral, we area always watching this process!!! The pilot is the one that is actually in charge of the ship and takes control of the ship and navigates it out of the port. Then, a little boat pulls up and the pilot jumps off the ship and onto the little boat and takes him back to the harbor.

The two I knew of were on the bridge wing's, Port and Starboard in a kind of holder that would allow them to float free if the ship sunk!
That's what I remember from the Safety Familiarization lesson when we used to board each time for a new contract!

There still there. Im almost positive, Ive seen some life rings on deck 10 that have EPIRBS attached now. I know they at least have a strobe. The effect is still the same if they are only strobes and not an EPIRB. The process would be the same if a EPIRB was launched/actrivated.

Good to hear they have more than just the rope on the life ring's now. I think they just has a light (similar to the one on the lifejacket's, that I hear now are strobes :thumbsup2, much more visable!)

This is an excerpt from Wikipedia on the Premier cruise line for those interested:

The Oceanic (Big Red Boat I) is still sailing today. On 23 April 2009 she was sold to Japan-based Peace Boat. The Big Red Boat II, formerly Eugenio Costa, was put up for sale and was laid up in Freeport, Bahamas. It had no potential buyers and remained there until 2005. It was eventually sold to the breakers and was scrapped in Alang, India in late 2005.[7] The Big Red Boat III, formerly Carnival Cruise Line's Festivale was also sold for scrap. The former Frederico C (called the Seabreeze I) was to be scrapped at India but instead sank in a storm 220 nautical miles (407 km) off the Virginia coast. Lastly, the Rembrandt, formerly the Rotterdam, was purchased by the city of Rotterdam, The Netherlands, to be restored and kept as a historic landmark

As far as the conclusion of the issue, the result is the same whether its a strobe or EPIRB. Theres a reason for it.

Both can be activated manually, and have been in the past.

The way I understand it, is that an EPIRB, must be mounted in a spot that it will float free if needed. BUT must also be able to be thrown clear. such as the Concordia, where she rolled, and prob didnt float her EPIRBS free.

But the Concordia's EPRB's could have been thrown overboard from the bridge wing's once she it the rock, BUT from the report's the Capt. delayed or mis understood the seriousness of what had happened.
The EPIRB, from Wiki:
"they are radiobeacons that interface with worldwide offered service of Cospas-Sarsat, the international satellite system for search and rescue (SAR). When manually activated, or automatically activated upon immersion, such beacons send out a distress signal. The signals are monitored worldwide and the location of the distress is detected by non-geostationary satellites, and can be located by trilateration in combination with triangulation, respecting the varying quality of the signal received.[1]"

I do not doubt a EPIRB "type" device being on the life ring's, but doubt they are a "full" type EPIRB as are on the bridge wing's.

A strobe in the middle of the atlantic wouldn't help the Magic/Wonder/Dream and soon to be Fantasy if they had a issue. A Radio beacon would help some, but the GPS part help's a lot more as it is monitored.

No argument, just thought's! :goodvibes

An EPRIP is the same as an ELT on aircraft. Both used to be monitored on VHF radio. Now they go direct to Satelites and are monitored 24/7. With in seconds of one going off agencies ar notified and SAR is started. It can get interesting if you set one off on accident.;)

On the outside, port side, under lifeboat 10.You can see it standing on the walkway on deck 5. Same spot on the stbd side. That seam wil travel all the way around the ship,with a deviation of about 1/16th of an inch. Acording to the Magics designer, if the Magic were ever to suffer a crack in her hull, it would be anywhere but there. Its the strongest part on the ship.
2. The Wonder has a seam in the same place. Whats the difference?
The Wonders is for decoration only
3. What is different about the design process of the Magic Class, vs the Dream Class?
For the Magic class, they built the ship around the hotel. For the Dream class, the built the ship, then stuck a hotel in it.
4. What other cartoon characters, took over the Big Red boat, after the Disney contract expired?
Looney Toons
5. What happened to Premier Cruises?
They went bankrupt. Several of their ships are still sailing under different names, and at least 1 is to be or is a landmark in its namesake country.

7. While strolling the decks of the ships, you notice large rings, with some rope and a strobe light attached. The letters EPRIB are seen on it. What does EPIRB stand for and what does it do?
Emergency Position Indicator Radio Beacons. Sends an automated message asking for help.
8. What happens when it gets wet with water?
It will activate, sending a signal to every ship and plane in the area, advertising its position and asking for help.
9. Who cares what happens to it, and what will they do with it?
The USCG and other law enforcement agencies. If it is activated or falls of a ship, or released from a ship in a worst case scenario, one of the things that will happen is someone will find it, and remove it from the water, so after the search is over, no one will mistake it for a current emergency. If they are activated, by accident or on purpose, it will bring a vist by the CG or law enforcement. They dont like to go searching for something that isnt in immediate danger.

Harder 5

what is sail area on a vessel?

The area of hull and superstructure that is exposed to the wind eg if the wind is blowing from dead ahead only the forward facing area catches the wind, which can slow a vessel, but if the wind is blowing directly on the beam the whole hull and superstructure will catch the wind, just like a big "sail" which will try to push her sideways.

Well it seems you folks got most of these.....but here are my answers!

Easy:


1. What is the superstructure of a vessel?

All structure of the vessel above the gunwales!

2. What is the name of the large wide section of the hull at the very end of the bow?

I think I could have worded this one better, but I as referring to the *Bulbous Bow*, it is used to start the the water around the vessel is part and set up the riding wave..reducing friction and increasing speed and reducing fuel consumption.

3. Entering or leaving port, what flag is flown form the mast over the wheelhouse, on the right side of the yardarm?

As a courtesy to the country waters/harbour you are entering..you fly the countries flag......you will see old glory up there on the next cruise from the states!

4. What is the beam of a vessel?

Indeed.the widest part of the vessel

5. What is LOA in reguard to the lenght of a vessel?

Again..you guys got this.........Length over all.

Harder:

1. What is a *compass Rose*?

I was thinking of the rose/compass face on a chart.but you are correct......the compass face or rose is of course on a compass too!

2. How fast is a *knot*? (not the rope kind)

[/COLOR]1 knot is the speed over a nautical mile...........6,222 feet.[/COLOR]

3. Where is shaft allley?


Right down there with the prop shafts!

4. On which side of the ship is the Masters stateroom and the Cheif Engineers stateroom usually located?

As tradition (but no always these days).the Captians cabin was was on the deck below the bridge, starbaord side and the chief Engineers on the Port side. The Captains sometimes did have a *day* cabin on the bridge in the chart room area.

5. What is *sail area* on a vessel?

Indeed yes.the sail area is any part of the vessel above the water, that the wind can push againist!......


Hardest:

1. What is a *water/foam monitor*?

Yea a water/foam cannon for another word!

2. What is a *hose snozzle(spl?)*?

That big brass thing to spray the water in different streams, like on a garden hose

3. What is a sextant?

A Sextent is a navigation tool used to meaure the height of a celestrial object(sun, moon star) above the horizon. Using various tables a Deck Officer can determine a LOP, or line of postion along which his vessel was at that time. Taking more then 1 LOP, where they cross, is where your vessel was at that time.

4. How does a depth sounder work?

A echo electrical signal is directed down and by measuring the time it takes to return, the depht under the keel is measured

5. What is a *rouge wave*

A rouge wave is formed by weather stroms and currents all coming together to creat a very large Rouge wave, very dangerous to a vessel. They do not happen often, but they do happen

The Posiden Adventure movie was based on the rough wave that hit the original Queen Mary, in the north atlantic, where she was hit over the starboard bow, crushed the forward well deck down 10' and rolled her 34 degress.......that is a BIG roll for a passinger ship!


DCL:

1. What is the name of the main dinning rooms of the classic vessels?

You got all these too!

2. What country flag does the DCL vessels fly?

Bahammas

3. What charater is on the stern of the new Fantasy?

Yeap!......Dunbo and timothy

4. How many side thrusters does the classic vessels have?

Yeap...5 it is

5. The Classic vessels are approximatley the size of 2 WWII warships.
What type of warship?

They are basicly the size of 2........WWII aircraft carriers!


NOW the extra credit..............A fairy tale is like a sea story becuase a fairy tale starts..............*Once upon a time..*.and the sea story starts....*This ain't no S....t*.....*G*

9.On DCL ships, there are 2 sets of officers, 1 from each category. What are the names of the 2 categories?
Deck Officer's, and Officers?
or
Petty Officer's, and Officers?

4. Either way. Depeds on what the designers have in mind. when they spin in,(Port screw clockwise, Stbd counter) they usually give more speed, when the spin out,(port counterclockwise Stbd clockwise) they usually create more power.

6. Not what I had in mind. This is the one I had a hard time trying to convey. the Answer is very gently, or very slowly. Theres a few reasons.
a. When a ship turns at speed, centrifical force takes over, and a ship will list to the opposite side of the turn.
b. when a ship turns at sea, it typically loses speed. A gentle or slower longer turn over a larger area is more desirable as the ship wont lose too much speed, or lose too much time in transit. Another issue would be the cost of the fuel burned to make up the speed again.


11. Tug kisses or lipstick marks. They are made when a tug, that is using rubber tires as fenders, nudges a ship in to a pier or turn. You can also see them on the sides of ships, where the pier uses tires as bumpers and a ship nudges the docks.

1. On a ship, what is the air draft and why is it important?

3.What is another name for the propellers?

4. On ships with multiple propellers, (2 or more) which way do they turn?
Inward or outward, depending on the what the designers want the ship to do. The reason that they dont turn the same way, is that a ship will list to one side, not necessarily walk. However counter rotating props, also have the advantage that with 1 prop backing, the other going foward, a ship or boat will generally (in a perfect world) turn in her own length.
5.While walking along the DCL ships, or even any other ships, you notice numbers that go up from the waterline, and get higher the higher on the hull they go. What do the numbers represent?

Tug Kisses or lipstick marks. Generally made when a tug nudges or pushes a ship into the pier, or when a ship rubs the dock, where the tires are used as cushions.
12. Where does the term Red Right Return come from?
When entering a channel from sea, the Red Buoy,is on your Right, Returning

Yep. Thats what I was thinking. I remember seeing them on ships that have all white hulls like Carnival. I see them more now from the tires that are used as pier protection, then I do from a tug pushing a ship. some tugs dont use tires. They have manilla type rope that they use instead.
