My partner and I are currently on Cunard's Queen Victoria sailing around Greece and as novices (second cruise only) we like to play a game onboard called 'Spotting Seasoned Cruisers'. I won the game today with this:

At least in the Caribbean, you might consider anyone wearing a lanyard a seasoned cruiser. EM

That photo is so funny. We've been cruising for years and didn't know that there was such a thing as a "towel-clip" :evilsmile:

Funny, but I was thinking the opposite - that it would be a novice who would wear the lanyard. :D Personal preference I guess.

Those towel-clips are being used by the chair hogs now.

A lanyard for me is a scream that says; "I'M FROM THE US OF A!". [emoji6]

Seasoned cruised, chair-hog = same thing?

Cruise ship cabins cab at times become a little 'stuffy'. An old timer told us to buy a reed diffuser at one of the local perfumeries. It works a treat! The cabin now smells like honey. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...647b9297d5.jpg

Agree with you.

Went on our first cruise last year and took towel clips with us. Never actually used them, though. Doesn't take a seasoned cruiser, just someone who's willing to Google "cruise tips." That's how my wife found them. Heck, I did so much research leading up to it that I knew tips and things about cruising the couple we went with didn't know...and they're frequent cruisers. In regards to lanyards, I saw a lot of gold cards on lanyards, just as many as blue & red. Plus plenty of platinum & diamond, too. It didn't look like it singled out either one, new or long-time cruiser.

Might not be seasoned cruiser but a newbie who read one of the packing lists and followed it. We have taken more than 20 cruises and never brought towel clips. Didn't need them since if we were off the towel it was only for a few minutes in the pool.

It's OK. After spending 5 days on the QV so far, I've come to realise that the pax with the towel clips are the ones who also don't stand in line for anything.
