(And) 6 Cruise Activities That Are No Longer Allowed

How many of us are still waiting for our 'messages in a bottle' to be returned?

Instead of confetti, I bring a bottle of bubble solution and send bubble into the air as we set sail. It is "biodegradable".Big Smile

Cool list, thanks for sharing that. Too bad about the message in the bottle ban. That be fun. When I was a kid, once in a blue moon a story in the paper or even TV news would come up about people getting a response after dropping a bottle into the ocean.

That was a cool read. Thanks

Times have changed. I only started cruising in 2007. I'm guessing someone could still do the message in the bottle though.

Maybe not dropping it from a ship, but from some shore/beach somewhere.

I'm sure people still try it though. Today's shipping world wide in all aspects are eco friendly. Complete recycling and trash storage. In the 80s off it went.

I can remember when I was young, my sister (10 years older then me) would drop off mom and dad to a cruise and would go on the ship to see the cabin and walk around the ship.

They forgot to mention the elegance of the MDR back then and the dress code.

I remember if you had a ship's passenger card, you could visit the public areas of other ships in port.

I didn't know this one! I would love to be able to do that!

We went to visit my sister when she was working on a cruise ship and it was in port in Vancouver. It was great having a tour of the ship, and hanging out in one of the bars and then her room when embarkation was happening. We didn't leave until the ship was about to set sail for Alaska. That was about 1980.
