Do unto others as you would have them do unto you… This is a quote from the bible that most of us have heard all of our lives. But have you ever wondered what that might look like on a cruise ship? Today let’s look at some rules of etiquette for when we are on a cruise.
- First, please hold the elevator door opened for the elderly or the disabled… For that matter, hold the door open for anyone getting on as you are getting off. That is just the polite thing to do.
- And don’t jump ahead in the buffet lines. Wait until your turn comes. The crew makes sure there is plenty of food. And would you want anyone else to grab food with their hands? Then don’t do that yourself. Use the serving utensils that are put out. And if you don’t see anything, please ask.
- “Please” and “thank you” always go a long way to make the other people feel appreciated. That goes for any staff who might be serving you. It also goes for any of your fellow passengers who might do something kind.
- Watch how much you enjoy those adult beverages. You don’t want to be rude because you drank too much, right? And besides, drinking too much and being out on the ocean is never a good idea.
I think we are going to finish this up tomorrow. I would love to know your thoughts.
