I know this isn't a NCL thing. But would you watch and still go on a cruise? It seems interesting but I don't know if it's wise to watch this before my first cruise in Sept! I guess it's especially not for little children.I am looking forward to the remake. I would watch it on a cruise if it was showing on board.

On the first day of our first cruise, we were still in port. My sister and I had gone back to our cabins to see if our other sister had arrived yet (which she had), and pick up some documents we needed. I walked out of my cabin and burst into laughter. They both looked at me and asked why I was laughing. I said, "Can you hear the music?" They said yes, but we don't know what it is. I laughed even harder before informing them that it was the music from the original Poseidon Adventure -- "There's got to be a morning after". Made me wonder about the sense of humor of whoever was responsible for picking the music on board.

Those of you who've been on the Jewel will understand this: When Mr. Droopy and I were on her last fall, every time we passed through the atrium Mr. Droopy would whisper something like, "Those icicles are really going to hurt when the ship turns over like in the Poseidon Adventure and the ceiling becomes the floor." Cracked me up every time.
Do you watch movies where cars crash, where planes crash, etc.?
Do you still drive in cars and fly in planes or do anything else that is in movies?
My wife does not want to see it, so I am going to see it with my kids (all going on the cruise with me in July)!

I'm planning on seeing "Poseidon". I really enjoyed the original.
Take it as what it is: just entertainment. Nothing more.
True story: I was talking to a co-worker a while back about cruising, and he asked me, "what if something happens?" Then of course, the inevitable "Titanic" story comes up. I told him, 1) we're off the coast of Mexico, so it's unlikely we'll hit an iceberg ("The only ice you'll hit is the one when you get to the bottom of the glass!"), 2) we're 20 miles off the coast, not 1500 miles out, and 3) if anything should happen, the Coast Guard and the Mexican Navy would be on us like that.
He's going to book the trip and propose to his girlfriend.
Now that's what I'm talking about!

But in the original only 6 were rescued. Boy must have been a small ship. What happened to all of the others? Blame it on the bermuda triangle? Going to be tough to be as good as the original. The version that was on TV a few months ago, was the exact of the original. They could have been a little more creative. Must be a lot of people out here that don't remember the original. I must be showing my age........I'm not even counting the made-for-TV version because it was so laughably bad!
Then again, Shelley Winters' pre-death speech was a classic of maudlin bad acting!
This stuff is just for fun. Call it mind candy.

I know this isn't a NCL thing. But would you watch and still go on a cruise? It seems interesting but I don't know if it's wise to watch this before my first cruise in Sept! I guess it's especially not for little children.I might as well see this movie along with Titanic before this Sunday and my first cruise to get me ready.
I was amazed at how many said "didn't you see Titanic?"
My first thought was hmm ice burgs down in the south caribbean are not usually a problem and I am a woman so I get first dibs on the life boat!
