Hi!. Anyone who knows me knows that I love to travel! I want to share my expertise in helping you go places & enjoy traveling, even on a budget.
Good cruise tips from a cruise steward:
As a cruise ship steward, I've learned some behind the scenes stuff and since it's her last year cruising for money, I figured I'd share what I know. These are from my experiences on ships I've worked on and from other cruise friends
1. If you ever get off the boat, you aren't signed up for an excursion and don't know where to go; FOLLOW THE CREW. See where they're headed to. Most seasoned crew members have been on the ship for 4-6 months. They've had ALOT of time to research and try what's good, what sucks, and more importantly, what's cheap. The crew knows where the cheap and good food is, where the best dive bars are, and for the most part the safest places in the area. Or you could always ask them.
2. Get to know your the crew members on ships that you're on! Don't be afraid to chat them up and make a friend. There used to be saying on the POA: One of the best friends to make on a cruise ship is a crew member. Once we felt connected for a handful of guests, we made sure those were the guests that got somewhat special treatment. I can't tell you how many times I've bent the rules (with my hotel manager's permission, of course) to make sure "my guests" were happy. From free drinks to even doing their laundry for them.
3. In order not to scare the passengers in the case of an emergency, the crew members speak in codes. No one, especially not the crew members, wants people panicking when you’re in the middle of nowhere. That’s why there are special codes used or example, ‘Code Alpha’ means there is some sort of a medical emergency. ‘Code Adam’ means there is a child missing on board. ‘Code bravo’ is to indicate there’s a fire.
4. At the end of a cruise, you’re usually asked to fill out a comment card. Most people just throw these away thinking that they will never get read. But not on a cruise ship! Comment cards are the determining factor when companies are deciding whether or not to fire someone or give them a raise. Just by taking 30 seconds to fill out that card may just save someone their job!
5. You are not limited to one of each appetizer, entree and dessert in the main dining room. You can order two entrees or three desserts if you choose. You can also order appetizer-sized portions of entrees as starters or order a few appetizers for your main meal. It's a great way to try new foods you're not sure you'll like.
6. Don't know which night to make specialty dinner reservations? The main dining room menus are planned for the week, and the purser's desk often has access to those menus. Ask to see them so you can decide which nights are less appealing and which you don't want to miss, and plan your cruise accordingly.
