· There are more non-minorites working onboard ships than you think. What's the misconception about cruise ship staff again? That they're all from third world countries, with the exception of the officers? While it may be true to an extent that many of the service positions on ships are held by those from developing areas , Undercover Boss seemed to partner up with regular Americans, with the exception of the Indian waitress. Sure, the staff featured on the show were vetted beforehand, but sometimes it's nice to remember that there are people out there who could be working at a bank or a restaurant on land, but are actually driven to be a cruise director or head waiter.
· Ship dance parties are universally corny. White feather wings? Blacklights? Line dancing? Oh boy, maybe it's a good thing we've avoided all dance nights like the plague on every cruise we've ever been on. Personally we find cruise directors to be annoying to all ends, so it was gratifying to see that once CEO Sheehan had gotten the "White Hot Dance Party" off and line-dancing, that the passengers quickly took it over and turned it into a party less awkward than how it started. It makes you wonder if the heavy themes are even necessary.
