Why some passengers remain on board during port visits

21 June 2016

Have you ever wondered why some cruise guests choose to stay on board when the ship visits a port? These are the main reasons:

Lines

When a ship arrives in port, the majority of passengers will go on excursions or just explore on their own. This often means long lines at tour departure points - while on board there will be no queues at the guest services desk, or when going for lunch.

Elevators

With so few guests around, most elevators will be virtually empty. This is a great time for exploring those parts of the ship where you have never been, without waiting what feels like an eternity for an elevator.

Lots of reclining chairs

With all those passengers off the ship, you will have no problem getting your own recliner, whether you want to relax in the sun or the shade. Which means - no angry stares because you grabbed a recliner right in front of that furious member of royalty.

Pool

On those days when the ship is in port, you will often have the swimming pool all to yourself. On a hot summers day, this is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a few hours swimming or simply relaxing under a poolside umbrella.

Been there before

Last but not least, one of the main reasons for staying on the ship is because those passengers have visited the port before, often more than once.

Of course, if you are new to cruising, none of these reasons will keep you away from the exciting experiences awaiting onshore - so go ahead and enjoy!
