Bronwyn Elsmore

Author Bronwyn Elsmoreabout this book: Look for this book in a dozen libraries and you're likely to find it placed in different sections – fiction, non-fiction, travel, creative non-fiction, humor…

That's because this story of an ocean cruise halfway around the world is all of those things.

On a cruise ship full of passengers from a variety of countries, travelling across 17 seas to 15 ports in 10 countries, there's got to be plenty of fun. Is there really a stowaway in one of the lifeboats? And what's the truth about Germans and deckchairs?

Every suitcase wheeled aboard a cruise ship should contain a copy of Seventeen Seas, so passengers can spot similar characters among their fellow travellers.


Readers say –

• "a very amusing fiction-from-fact traveling journal… we view the cruise through the eyes of a cross section of passengers."

• "…foibles of a shipload of international characters...fascinating snippets of life on board and ashore. Masterfully crafted; easy to read."

• "I have recommended the book both to my friends who cruise as well as people who have never cruised and would like to. This book gives a realistic view of what cruising is like in a fun and fictionalized manner."

Recommended as a great gift for relatives who cruise, for those who are determined they never will, and for armchair travelers.
