Logical, incomprehensible and strange bans on sea cruises

We talk about the rules during the sea cruise, which a traveler may encounter.The idea of ​​a sea cruise can fill the heart of every traveler with joy.The boundless water surface, a huge ship, new acquaintances and the most real adventures – what could be more interesting and exciting?However, a cruise is not so simple as it may seem at first glance.

Every tourist who buys a ticket for such a long and fascinating event should be prepared to comply with a wide variety of rules, some of which can shock any sensible person.For a start, we note that the rules for most cruises are fairly standard. Often, many of them duplicate similar instructions for tourists operating in hotels and inns.For example, guests are not allowed to take towels and bathrobes from their rooms with them, draw on the walls and spoil property, as well as smoke in places that are not allowed for this.

The latter prohibition is associated with an increased risk of fire, which on a ship in the middle of the ocean can lead to disastrous consequences. In addition, tourists can be forbidden to iron clothes in the rooms or use sockets in the bathrooms.

However, not all requirements are clear to tourists. One of them is adherence to the dress code and, in particular, the prohibition to wear this or that clothes and shoes. For example, on Azamara Club Cruises cruise liners, guests are not allowed to appear in jeans, shorts, T-shirts, beach hats and baseball caps in the dining area of ​​restaurants located on board. In addition, you can literally “expel” from the institution, if you appear on his doorstep in slippers, sandals or barefoot. According to the established rules of the dress code, tourists should be present in the restaurant exclusively in trousers, shirts and dresses that cover the legs.

Some other companies also prohibit their guests from communicating with the liner staff – only service relations and conversations “on the case” are allowed.
In individual cases, the rules prescribed by companies go beyond the limits of reasonable at all. For example, on cruise liners Windstar Cruises it is forbidden to be children under the age of eight years, even accompanied by parents. Moreover, similar “strange” rules also apply to fully adult and independent people. In particular, each passenger under the age of 21 years, according to company regulations, must be accompanied by another adult who is at least 25 years old. In this case, the rule is in the format of “law”, which means that besides disturbances and emotional applause the tourist is no longer able to do anything.
