naskr01 Posted August 27, 2006 #1 Share Posted August 27, 2006 Hi everybody, I will be going on a cruise with the Navigator soon and got a question that might seem a little strange. I am from Germany and my English is not too bad, but from time to time I am not sure about lets call it "the rules of conversation" in the US. Since one will probably have the same dining room tablemates for the entire cruise, would it be appropriate to shake hands when you see them on the first evening and to introduce yourself. Or would this, "Hello, my name is Peter Miller and I am from xy"-approach be absolutely not appropriate. In Germany people would think that you probably will go ahead and try to sell them a used- car, if you shake hands and tell your name at such an occasion. But, I guess an American will expect it. Am I right or am I wrong??? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
