How Not To Fall Off A Cruise Ship

Here's a strange fact! Every year about 19 people fall to their deaths from cruise ships, according to a report from trade group Cruise Lines International Association. But considering cruises take about 24 million people a year, the odds are low you'll be one of those 19.  But Safety First. Take the weather seriously. If you’re in the middle of the ocean and the winds are blowing, stay in your cabin. Any instructions you get from crew or staff regarding your safety should be taken seriously, even if you’re in a rush to get to the shrimp buffet. Wear appropriate shoes. The good news is that boat shoes are in style and they do well in sticking to the deck of a boat.  So ditch the high heels.  After all, you're on vacation! Beware not to consume too much alcohol. Staggering around a moving ship can be a dangerous combination. If you do want to dress up, then consider taking them off when walking on the outside deck. Finally, don’t do the “Titanic,” where you hang precariously off the bow of a ship in a romantic gesture. It could lead to reenacting another scene of trying to stay afloat in the ocean!
