Good Board Books About Cruising?

Does anyone have a recommendation for board books about cruise ships? Short pre-reader books for reading aloud at bedtime are ok too. I'd love to find one that covered a typical day on a cruise ship or all the cruise ship roles you might meet, rather than a book naming different types of boats from rowboats to aircraft carriers.

I wouldn’t call this a recommendation, but Hans Mateboer is a retired captain of HAL ships who has written three childrens books about Peter the Cruise Ship.  He also has two books of anecdotes of his sailing career, which I bought in Kindle edition and found very entertaining.  EM

Thank you so much. Our 4 year old granddaughters are experienced cruisers but they are joining us on our Alaska anniversary cruise and I think this will be perfect for them. For the OP, not a book but Disney has printable coloring pages that describes a cruise start to finish. https://disneycruise.disney.go.com/featured/little-ones/ download and print my Disney adventure cruise book. Can easily be adapted for any cruise

I recommend Captain Mateboer's books as well.  I have purchased them for my Grand-Nephews and were enjoyed.  His two books of anecdotes make for entertaining reading for adults.  His writing style makes for engaging reading.
