The thing to remember when you are on a cruise is that
you are traveling with a lot of other people, and what
you do can affect them. We never know how what we say,
do, or wear can affect other people. Here are some
tips so that the cruise is enjoyable for everyone.
1. Dress appropriately
It’s important to know ahead of time what the dress
will be for evenings, and for on the ship. If there is
a dress code for meals, make sure that you adhere to
it. If you dress inappropriately, you will be
uncomfortable and so will the other diners.
2. Be courteous with lounge chairs
Everyone wants to have a deck chair, but when people
are constantly saving them for people who may or may
not come to the pool it takes away from people who are
wanting to use them. Don’t reserve any more deck
chairs than necessary, so that everyone has a chance
to have a lounge chair and it’s fair to everyone. This
is one of the biggest problems on cruise ships.
Make certain that when you smoke you smoke in areas
that are designated for smoking. There may be people
that are allergic to smoke, and it’s not fair to
compromise their health.
A good rule of thumb is to think about the things that
make you uncomfortable about other people, and make
sure that what you are doing isn’t affecting someone
else the same way. When people respect one another,
everyone has a better time and enjoys their vacation.
