Cruise tips you can trust

 

Top 5
breaches of
cruise etiquette

Vacationers must share a ship's limited public spaces. Therefore, cruise etiquette and common courtesy for fellow passengers are essential. Below are the top 5 kinds of bad cruise manners.

Late-evening revelers

Some midnight imbibers think nothing of shouting loudly to their nearby buddies as they march boisterously by cabins.

Ill-behaved children

All parents adore the impromptu antics of their young children, but fellow passengers may have a different perspective.

Seat stakers

Some passengers spread objects over a series of empty seats or deck chairs to reserve them for a family or group who won't be arriving soon.

Dress-code busters

Some blue jean or Bermuda short donning passengers saunter into a formal-attire dining night and rationalize, "It's my vacation and I can wear whatever I want." It's also the vacation of even more people who appreciate the ambiance of a formal cruise dinner.

Cell-phone abusers

Just as on land in public places, some people on ships speak into their cell phones so loudly that it disturbs nearby strangers who paid good money to relax and unwind on a peaceful cruise.
