A Visit to the Bridge
|Welcome to our exclusive
Bridge tours used to be a regular event on cruises. Often you'd even be allowed to steer the ship - as long as we were in open water! But world events changed the need for strict security, and so Bridge tours are no longer offered on Sapphire.
But you can come along with me and I'll give you a special glimpse into what drives us.
Please do not adjust your screen - the photos are in black and white. Another nod to Security. (StarSea Corporate takes this very seriously!)
|First of all, here's where we are... the Bridge is located on Deck 10 (Sun Deck). When you read Winona's novel Cold Play you'll see my friend Jason talking about visiting the Bridge... and also visiting me! My office is right behind the Bridge. And Jason's venue, the TopDeck Lounge, is directly underneath the Bridge, on Deck 9 (Sports).|
This Sperry (adaptive digital gyropilot) uses signals from the Gyro to steer Sapphire on a constant course.
This autopilot is also interfaced with the IBS network for computerized operation.
|I hope you've enjoyed
your visit to the Bridge. On your way out, you'll pass my office -
which our friend Jason believes began life as a large storage closet. I have to say, I think I agree!
