10 Types of People on Cruises you are likely to meet
You will meet many people whilst on a cruise, this is a bit of a tongue in cheek article as not all the people on a cruise are nice. You will encounter many different types of personalities whilst on a cruise and I think that is what makes a cruise fun, you just dont know who you will meet. I met a very nice old gentleman who introduced me to the Ibeanians which I explain in my list of types of people who go on cruises you are likely to meet. (This is not intended to cause offence but just be warned some of these people are not nice to meet especially if you are on a long cruise.)
I however relish in meeting different types of people as it gives me great article ideas!! Which one are you?
Nothing is ever good enough, they see the bad in everything. The thing I can’t understand is people that moan about cruising but they are on their 17th cruise if they don’t like it then stop going on cruises.
The little princess/prince
Passengers who believe the crew are here to be their personal butlers. Unless you are in a suite and have a butler they are not here to do this. They work hard and they need to be appreciated. Also show some manners the crew are people so treat them like it.
The I got my cruise at a great price person
Yes great you got a bargain, well done but the person next to you could have paid a lot of money and if you tell them something like this it could end up ruining their holiday just keep this information to yourself.
The corridor hogger
Corridors are not very big on ships so if you’re walking down one, walk to one side so people can get past don’t dawdle in the middle. Also walking to one side will help you when you go off balance. Nothing worse than dashing to your cabin as your busting for a wee and everyone is walking so slow.
The quiz masters
People that go to every quiz and tend to win every quiz. It actually takes the fun out of it for others and people stop going as they know they’re not going to win anyway.
I met a seasoned cruiser that said to me ‘have you met many ibenians’ I thought it was a nationality I hadn’t come across before until he explained and I had to include it in this list as its hilarious.
“I been here, I’ve been there, I’ve been every bleeding where” – aren’t you the lucky ones!
The widow/er looking for a new companion
Some people come on cruises looking for love, some want friendship some just want to be left alone everyone is different. I have met a few widower who have asked me if I am interested in a sugar daddy
Those who don’t use the hand gel when entering food places. I really want to chase after them and go urghhh. It takes two seconds to use the gel and can save illnesses being spread.
I am sure these people would be the first to complain when there is a outbreak of something nasty. I am not sure if this is my old NHS working background coming out in me but the best way to stop the spread of germs is washing hands and using this gel.
I see people coming out of the toilet and going straight into the food places and not using it
The money seeker
Who is seeking out the widows to woo for their pennies. I was actually asked on one cruise if I am searching for a wealthy widower since I was so young, I was quite insulted.
The food putter backer
I have seen many times people pick put something on their plate and then put it back in the buffet don’t they realise this is such an easy way to spread germs
