I thought it was funny, and I'm American.

Gosh, I hope we get to choose our color.  It wouldn't want it to clash with my ensemble.

I got the joke immediately.

But then you have to understand our US American humor.

That's when you make a funny joke, and our response is to try to out-do your punchline.

wristband

 

Having some type of electronic wristband may be coming to all cruise lines sooner than later.  Having just read the latest CDC guidance on CC, there is a mention of such a device.  Princess already has their Medallion system for some of their ships.  MSC has an electronic wristband for YC guests.  

 

MSC and Princess may be ahead of the "curve" in this aspect.

Royal/Celebrity have had wristbands for a number of years.

 

You used it to pay for drinks etc - the problem was the tills (cash registers) weren't suitable to scan the bracelet where you were so you had to fight your way to reach the till - it added a good 1 minute to every drink order, which was hopeless when busy.

 

I refused to wear mine for that reason alone and just handed my cruise card across = much, much easier for all.

Oh yes, I remember nearly having my arm wrenched out of its socket by an over enthusiastic bartender on one RCI cruise. He was trying to be helpful though when I couldn’t reach the till! 😆

We've had wristbands last two trips in yc and they work well for everything.  MSC also sold wristbands for other categories and kids.
