We have so much fun with everyone - we speak english with maybe one/two words of italien - so just prepare yourself for a laugh at yourself and others trying to communcate - its part of the experience ( or get a phrase book) - enjoy!!

Not on the cruise ship the bulk of passengers in European;Caribbean; West coast USA cruises speak english. It is sad to say some of us with no other language do get away with murder.

English is widely spoken everywhere just been on the Baltic Cruise and the only guide who had very minor problems was in St Petersburg but its Russia, I think its very difficult to learn English from Russian and vice versa, I could understand him in any case and he was a character!!! so well done him! All staff on the cruises are not British but most do speak excellent English.
