The ship was a buzz with accents! I think that I must have heard accents from every corner of the world while listening to both the crew and the other passengers. It was fascinating. I don't know if it is just me or not, but whenever I hear someone talk with any kind of accent, I instantly think that they are interesting and intelligent. Now, logic would tell me that my speaking voice would also have an accent to those that aren't from the US, but that is so hard for me to imagine...me with an accent...is it possible then that others thought me interesting and intelligent...I seriously doubt it.
