A cabin on a cruise can provide you with a personal haven. It can allow you some space to relax after a busy excursion or just enjoy a little alone time. However, there are some things that you should avoid doing in your cabin if you want to be a good guest on board the ship.
Many cruise lines and companies have banned smoking in both cabins and many of the public areas. The main reason for this is the fact that smoking can present a fire hazard and there have been many reports of ships catching fire due to a little wayward ash. Additionally, many people consider smoking to be a public nuisance. So, if you are a smoker, check out where you can take a smoke break before you board. On the subject of fire hazards; whether you like to light candles or incense, or you have managed to bring a hotplate onboard, these activities are also a fire hazard and are a real no-no.
Leave Your Balcony Door Open:
While the sound of the sea may help you to lull you to a dreamy sleep, propping open a balcony door during sailing is not a good idea. Leaving the door open can not only cause the air conditioning in the cabin to work harder and waste energy, but you may trigger some unexpected effects. For example, the wind tunnel effect can cause a mess in your cabin and may cause the smoke alarm to set off.
Drying Your Laundry on the Balcony:
Whether you’ve been at the swimming hole or just need to freshen up a few items, it can be tempting to let the warm sea air help your clothing to dry on the balcony. However, there are a couple of reasons why you should avoid doing this. Firstly, there is a risk of your items of clothing disappearing as soon as your Kimberley coast cruises vessel starts to move. Additionally, there is a risk that the items could be flammable and present a fire hazard.
While Kimberley boat cruises tend to be very relaxed, you will still need to be a little tidy if you want to stay organised. As floor space may be limited in your cabin, leaving your shoes and clothing on the floor can be a trip hazard if you need to go to the bathroom during the night. Additionally, being messy can make it difficult to keep track of all your belongings. This means that you could end up forgetting to take your camera on an excursion and miss out on some once in a lifetime photo opportunities.
