Pull the Ezekiel Lighthouse Skirt on over your bikini bottoms and head up to the deck. Then offer to help the second mate un-reef the mainsail. Or fly the spinnaker. Or climb up to the lookout to keep an eye out for pirates. When he mentions that you're on a huge cruise-liner, just smile. Sooner or later, he might give in and sneak you up to the wheelhouse.
