Rubber Duckie, You're the One...

Can someone explain what Cruise Ducks are? I saw the cutest picture of a rubber duckie on the Shipmate app with a little note that said something to the extent of; Yay! you found the cruise duck. Re-hide him or keep him. Then it said he had been hand panted and where he was from. What piqued my interest was the comments saying they couldn't wait to play and find one.

I just requested to join the face book group. I cruise in August and plan on doing this.

So its like message in a bottle. If we buy some to take, looks like we should bring tags too - right?

Noticed that there are a number of "cruising duck" groups on FB. People coordinating duck deployment etc.

I think i might need to duck out of this conversation ;)

I believe my wife is deploying 12 firefighter ducks on-board Symphony of the Seas for the April 25th Sailing...all because i opened my big mouth. lol

Really? Packing what I need is hard enough. I don’t need to throw a stupid plastic duck in my luggage.

unless of course the ship has skeet shooting and I can shoot that sucker into a dozen pieces
