Misconceptions About Cruise Ships

I believe one of the most misunderstood concepts about cruise ships is the vastness and size of the vessels.  People who haven't cruised before have difficulty imagining thousands of people on board one ship and tend to think you are all packed together like sardines.  They don't understand that it is like it's own floating mini city with restaurants, shops, theaters, etc.   What other misconceptions do people have about cruising?

???? - sorry but I don't understand your comment.

Perhaps they are unable to find their way out of their cabins??? Big Smile

LOL - I think you're right about that.

Slang for "You got that right" or "You're preaching to the choir"Happy

On a cruise, I find a clear distinction between "not doing anything" and "boredom".

It is nice to be able to completely relax.

Many people do not know how to relax and feel they must be "doing something" ... Just breathing the air is a high for me ...

I've never heard that saying before. LOL. I'm definitely not bored when I'm doing nothing.

My boss thinks all cruise ships are Titanics waiting to sink, full of ebola, noro viruses, legionaires dsease, and captains who leaves sinking ships first.

I think I met him on my last cruise - lol

Lots of people think that they will get bored on a ship. They should pick a cruise that is heavy on visiting ports. I think that I would get exhausted doing a port every day. There is something for everyone when cruising.

One of the biggest misconceptions I hear from friends is..."how can you AFFORD to go on a cruise...they are so expensive. I find it cheaper than going to Bob's Stop & Flop down on the frontage road by the interstate.
