Six Things Experienced Cruisers Would Never Do

Experienced cruisers are well prepared. From what to pack, to where to go, to what to do, these guests have travelling down to a fine art. Here are six things you would never catch a seasoned cruiser doing!

1. CALL A NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE VESSEL A "BOAT"

Boats in Italy

Though both ship and boat seem to be an interchangeable term among guests, seasoned cruisers know that calling these majestic beauties a "boat" is just not right. Due to factors like size and where and how the vessel operates, rightfully classifies our ships as... well ships.

2. NEGLECTING TO REVIEW NAUTICAL TERMS

Compass and Map

No matter how you cruise, there will come a time when you lose your sense of direction. If this isn't disorienting enough, try being told “aft, forward, starboard, and port.” Experienced cruisers know to brush up on their nautical terms before setting sail. When your captain announces, “complimentary lobster tails, Deck 15 Aft” you won’t want to miss a beat.

3. FAILING TO SCHEDULE AHEAD

Shore Excursion Desk

There are two ways guests can go about their cruise, plan it out or play it by ear. Although both are fine options, you will never find an experienced cruiser with a checklist leaving it up to chance. These folks know what they want and they know that their wish list activities fill up fast. Whether it's a specialty dining venue, a Broadway show, or a shore excursion, it pays to be proactive and book ahead of time!

4. QUESTION THE CAPTAIN

Bridge

Experienced cruisers are flexible with their travel plans. At any time the Captain can change a port of call due to things like inclement weather. Remember, the Captain has your best interest at heart if he has to reroute you to another destination.

5. PROP THE STATEROOM AND BALCONY DOOR OPEN

Balcony

Just like a draft can be created in your home, the same can be done onboard a cruise ship. Anyone who has ever stayed in a balcony room or a suite knows to be careful having the stateroom and balcony door open at the same time. With the ship reaching speeds of up to 26 knots (approximately 30 mph!), the right gust of wind could blow your valuables right out the door.

6. AVOID THE "WASHY WASHY" CREW

Garden Cafe

After a long day at the pool, there's nothing better than heading over to the buffet for a cool drink and a bite to eat. "WASHY WASHY, HAPPY HAPPY, SMILEY SMILEY" the crew will echo as they greet you at the entrance, cleaning down your hands. Experienced cruisers embrace the "Washy Washy" crew, because they know the importance of cleanliness on a ship.
