Time Zones, Containers and Three Square Meals a Day
by Maria Staal
Deadly pirate attacks and a near collision with an oil tanker are just two of the dangers faced by the crews of today's container ships. 'Time Zones, Containers and Three Square Meals a Day', is the story of life on the high seas, where real adventures still exist.
The author recounts her adventures on the container ship ‘MV Serenity River’ in this entertaining narrative travelogue. An unusual trip in a world that is usually hidden from view, and where working and living can become a struggle just because of the constant changing of the clocks. However, lifelong friendships are forged and dolphins play around the ship to the entertainment of everyone on board.
But what happens when a hurricane force wind suddenly comes up in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and starts tossing the ship about like mad?
