Taking a Cruise: What You Need to Know : Boarding & Leaving a Cruise Ship


Hi! My name is Melissa Schenk on behalf of
expertvillage.com today we’re discussing cruise traveling tips. Alright so we’ve
discussed safety now we’re on to what is called the gangway. Do you know what the gangway
is called? The gangway is actually when you’re about to board the ship, so let’s discuss
the comings and goings on and off of a ship. When you’re heading into port you’re going
to need your, what is called usually a sale and sign card, it’s usually the credit card
that you always use to get into your room. When you’re boarding the gangway for the
very first time crew is going to ask you to look into a little console and they’re going
to take your picture. They’ll put that picture onto this card and every time you leave and
board the ship you’re going to have to put this card into the contraction. What that
does is it counts the number of people leaving the ship and boarding the ship so they can
keep their numbers straight and they can keep track of you in case they loose you in port.
