By far the biggest perk to working on the Jungle Cruise was the chick magnet potential. No matter what the skipper looked like as long as you were witty, flirty and outgoing you would more than likely get a few phone numbers by the end of your shift. It wasn't a bad gig really. Your costume was pretty cool, with your khaki pants and fedora, you looked like an Indiana Jones in training. You were paid to "drive" a boat, tell jokes and flirt with girls.
oh and by the way, here's something for the ladies. If any skipper ever tells you that you are a very courteous guest, be flattered. A "courtesy" is secret speak for "hottie". You might hear something like "Hey skip, I see you have quite a few courteous guests aboard your boat".
I'm not sure if they still do this or not but we used to have a spiel for the que as well. Every 15 minutes or so we would get on our PA and make a few announcements, which were usually wisecracks or jokes that were meant to be very subtle. It was just to give the guest an idea of what to expect just in case they thought this was a serious ride.
and speaking of serious rides I once had an entire boat full of Japanese tourists (at least i think they were Japanese). I started off saying the spiel but they were all engrossed in their own conversations and picture taking that I just gave up and would not say anything untill we reached a good photo op, then I would tell them "Photo!" and they would get all excited and start taking pictures like crazy. I did this for the entire ride. It was actualy pretty funny and they enjoyed themselves.
