Default Cruise Crossword Puzzle

Custom Crossword Puzzle

Hey all - I created this all just for you. Go to the page and print out the puzzle. (that's the only way it will work unless you want to use a sharpie on your computer monitor - but we don't recommend that).

Enjoy!

By the way - If you want me to do more of these - send me more clues and as soon as I have enough I will create a new crossword.

I love crossword's, but this one is impossible (for me) to print. I only get
"Click here to print this page" .

Any suggestions?

I guess it is possible you may have a setting NOT to print images when you print web pages. The lines of the boxes are actually images - other wise I really don't know.

You could do a screen shot and print it as a picture. Or you could just take a piece of paper and kind of write the answers down in a rough matrix.

Try this - go to the puzzle and hit "ALT+PRTSCRN" and then open Microsoft Paint and do "Edit >> Paste" You will see a new picture appear. So print that.

I'm game for a crossword puzzle anytime, but all I got on the print page was a list of clues and a scattering of numbers - no lines or boxes, nothing that looks like a crossword...
I guess I could just answer the questions....

Sorry - but I think I figured out a solution - not sure how long it will last but we'll see.

Worked fine for me. Now I just have to figure out the questions. Hint: Don't use a pen.

Take care,
Mike

I WILL GIVE YOU A REALLY BIG HINT...


Many of the answers are directly from this list:

Cruise Glossary; definition of cruising terms, common cruise word definition

If you fill these in you should get the rest.

Thanks for doing this. Next time I will work on making the clues more "clever" (this was my first stab at this).

OK, maybe the problem is that I do a LOT of crossword puzzles. I do the ones in airplane magazines in ink and rarely cannot finish one within a 1/2 hour.

Also - these are all cruise words, but I think missing all the other words makes it harder because you don't have so many letters to help you get new words.

Another hint - there are a lot of combined words like "keycard" and "M*****drill"

I am down to 5 that I can't answer. Affinity sailing, cruise over land, dining choices, ship cafeteria and local port expert. Any ideas?

Bulbousbow is the answer: 5: Down is Busboy and works with 3 down.

Take care,

The only one I have left is 44 across. Exposed to wond. What's "wond"?

Take care,
Mike

Mike,

FOUL!

I believe I'm correct in saying that all ships have a forefoot..........all ships don't have bulbuous bows, I even dare say there may be even a few old cruiseships out there that don't as well! ;-)

Todd,

You may be correct but bulbousbow and busboy work.

Then again, I can't think of a cruise ship that doesn't have a bulbous bow.

Take care,
Mike
