Does anyone have experience with finding/arranging a minyan on a cruise (not a “kosher” cruise)such as Royal Caribbean? How would I go about finding other frum people on the cruise?January 9, 2013 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #1050996
Forget a minyan. What about kosher food? Or, more fundamentally, a kosher crowd.
Find a kosher crowd first and you won’t be on a cruise that you are looking for a minyan on.January 9, 2013 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #1050997takahmamashParticipant
My parents took several cruises on the QE2. There was a kosher kitchen, a shule, and minyanim.January 9, 2013 5:44 pm at 5:44 pm #1050998thehockMember

If you order Kosher Food on a cruise, they will give it to you, Its Airline foodJanuary 9, 2013 6:14 pm at 6:14 pm #1051000yaakov doeParticipant
Aside from the kosher TV dinners, is anything else “kosher” on a cruise? I assume that there’s a lot that shouldn’t be seen.January 9, 2013 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #1051001
If one wanted to follow a Chumra , almost nowhere could be considered a “Kosher” vacation except maybe Jerusalem
Kosher food or Minyanim can be sparse in most places and I know people who assur Disney (Kol Isha at the Parade?)January 9, 2013 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #1051002KovodHabriyosMember
Why should a Disney parade with Kol Isha NOT be assur. Of course it would be assur.January 9, 2013 9:53 pm at 9:53 pm #1051003ToiParticipant
zdad- lo sasuru is a possuk, not a chumra. get a grip.
To the op- maybe we’ll join forces and make minyanim at nightclubs?January 9, 2013 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #1051004
You can go to Disney without seeing the Parade, I saw lots of frum people there including Chassidim (And they were at the Parade)January 9, 2013 10:27 pm at 10:27 pm #1051005apushatayidParticipant
Is there an issur kol isha as it relates to minnie mouse?January 9, 2013 10:34 pm at 10:34 pm #1051006
Why not? It is a human doing the singing.January 9, 2013 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #1051007
Actually they dont sing at the Parade , Its piped in music and they Lip Synch
The disney characters like Minnie Mouse are not allowed to talk to the guestsJanuary 10, 2013 12:00 am at 12:00 am #1051008
Even if that’s true you are still listening to recorded singing of a woman.January 10, 2013 12:28 am at 12:28 am #1051009truthsharerMember
and it’s more than one person singing at the same time, so kol isha may not necessarily apply.January 10, 2013 3:14 am at 3:14 am #1051010funnyboneParticipant
When people post a question, they are looking for an answer. DUH! So, if you have an answer for the question, then answer it! If you don’t, then don’t. If you feel that people shouldn’t go on cruises then feel free to start a thread about cruises. This one is about a minyan on a cruise!!January 10, 2013 4:03 am at 4:03 am #1051011gornitMember
On the non-kosher cruises the minyan is usually after the daf yomi shiyur, not.January 10, 2013 4:38 am at 4:38 am #1051013ziggy86Member
Thank you all for your responses – for the “mussar” as well. This cruise is something that has been offered to us, not something which we have sought out, so we had been wondering if it was something to even consider…..Thank you again! And to funnybone – I couldn’t have said it better myself.January 10, 2013 4:55 am at 4:55 am #1051014charliehallParticipant
I know a frum couple that takes non-kosher cruises. They subsist on canned tuna and the fresh fruit available to everyone. At the end of the cruise they are the only passengers who didn’t gain weight!September 15, 2013 2:27 pm at 2:27 pm #1051015kdcruisesMember

Is anyone still reading this thread?
We’ve gone on 5 cruises, some with a minyan, othertimes not so successful. Food is totally a non-issue. Aside from cholov yisroel milk, which we bring with us, the cruise provides a vast array of pre-packaged, doubled sealed meals, and all the whole, uncut fresh fruits and vegetables you want. just bring along a peeler and knife.
More info if you need.
