On the Great Lakes, you can call these types of ships "boats", and be perfectly correct. Can anyone say why? First person to get it right wins a beer on me (from my drink package, lol).

 

@RumRunner2021

“Lake freighters, or lakers, are bulk carrier vessels that ply the Great Lakes of North America. These vessels are traditionally called boats, although classified as ships.”   (The Edmund Fitzgerald was a laker.)

I imagine they were called boats because they plied the Great Lakes and were not ocean going vessels…

But why are they called "boats"?

Because they were made to travel on lakes and not oceans. I’m out of guesses and that’s all I could find searching for it. 😊

Glad to see the silent disco is back, I do not believe that was on some of the first cruises. Next step…. Bar seating.

I actually saw a few passengers sitting at the bar in Schooner last night.

This cool model of our Adventure of the Seas was being displayed in an athwartship passageway on deck 9 (my deck).

 

The Logo Store sells smaller models of the AOS. I'm thinking of buying one and starting a tradition of collecting a model of the ship for each cruise I'm on. I have a nautical-themed study/den at home (shocker right?), so these cruise ship models would look good there.

I have one of those models for each ship that I've been on.
