Seventeen Seas

By Bronwyn Elsmore

Travel, Comedy & satire | Paperback


Is there really a stowaway in one of the lifeboats? And what’s the truth about Germans and deckchairs? On a cruise ship full of passengers from different countries there’s bound to be plenty of fun. Seventeen Seas follows a voyage through ten countries, fifteen ports, across seventeen seas, for forty-six days. Stories of the journey itself and the multiple destinations are told through the viewpoint of a variety of characters. Seventeen Seas is a travel-book with a difference. Reviewers say – – a humorous mix of character studies, local geography and cultural oddities… – Ms Elsmore's dry wit and astute observations of the human condition will entertain and educate, regardless of whether one has cruised or not. – The wry and often subtle humor was refreshing. I particularly like the fact this book didn’t get overly political, romantic, or historical. It was as it purported to be, an odyssey of passengers on a lengthy cruise.
