Cruise Ducks

These little guys are small

they hide behind chairs

Or on top of a wall

Or under the stairs.

They’re made of rubber

And most commonly yellow

Sometimes they’re found by a clubber

Or sometimes just any good old fellow…

What am I?

A Cruising Duck of course! What is a cruising duck? Well, it’s one of the hottest cruise fads of course. People are hiding ducks all over cruise ships for others to find. Once you find a duck, you can take pictures of yourself with the duck on the ship and then post it to social media using the tag #cruisingducks. You can choose to keep the duck or hide it on another cruise ship for others to find. The slogan is "keep or hide, you decide". The cruising duck game is kind of like a game of hide and seek.

So we want to know, have you hidden or found a #cruisingduck? What is the craziest duck or hiding place you’ve seen? Tell us about it!

Yes, when traveling with the kids we bring and hide the ducks. We hide them in plain sight, nothing too difficult. Although I wonder what will happen when sailing starts again. Will ducks be permitted? Will they need to washy-washy between placement? Ducks may be on hold for early cruising.

I enjoy watching people find the ducks. Last cruise I met a lad that had found two, got two out of the claw grab and his dad had found one more. I asked him about the ducks and he was excited to tell me all about them. If I see one when walking about the ship, it makes me smile. I am sad for those that don't like them.

I have hidden them but I have never found one. When I hid them I hope that it's found by a child simply because I enjoy seeing them jump up and down rather it be my duck or someone else's. There are actually a few Cruise Duck Facebook pages.

This is the first I have heard of cruise ducks. I am now onboard and I will take one to hide, on our next sailing.

Thanks you for educating me. Happy

I bought a few ducks to hide on our July 2020 cruise. Needless to say, the cruise was cancelled, so I will be saving them for if/when we are able to cruise again. Keeping my fingers crossed I will get the opportunity to hide them!

I've hidden ducks on a couple of our cruises. I normally bring 12-14 ducks to hide and hide them real early in the morning or real late at night. I've found 2 ducks and the secret is to get up early and start looking.....especially the elevators and the railings by the stores. You can find them everywhere. It's alot of fun for kids.
