If the cruise ship sinks then how do they put you in the morgue if the ship has sunken

Alexander Richardson · August 13, 2018 at 11:33 am

The propeller is a big problem falling of

Tom Ragen · August 13, 2018 at 1:42 pm

There are so many incorrect “facts” in this video, it’s ridiculous. Hahaha!!

Beniac_Maniac · August 13, 2018 at 3:39 pm

I have a feeling these are no secret but rather knowledge that some people don’t know about.
BTW Queen Mary 2 already fixed the exhaust polluting deck problem. Check the ship’s funnel design.
And rowdy guests ain’t no liner’s fault.

Randolph D · August 13, 2018 at 5:44 pm

Use your credit card to purchase the cruise, they can generally get you out of cancellation fees. Same for flights, concert tickets, etc.

Sheldon VL · August 13, 2018 at 6:46 pm

As a crewmember, I can happily say that most of these points are utterly incorrect. Seriously, complete garbage.

OMGitsPylot · August 13, 2018 at 7:27 pm

What’s that our ship capsized on a reef and killed a few people, ahh throw em in the morgue it’s only 3 decks underwater

infuscolumen · August 13, 2018 at 7:36 pm

Not quite accurate.
10. Nothing special with this. Morgue is a necessity for a sea going vessel that might be far from any hospital / morgue on land.
9. Not true, for most cruise lines. I worked on Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Norwegian Cruise Lines. MLC2006 agreement specifies how seafarers are to be treated, including, to a degree, rules about compensation. Flights back home are paid by the company. NCL, for example, not only pays flights both way for their crew, it also covers your medical, which is done every 2 years, and your C1/D (seaman in transit) visa (usually $160). Salary is on par with other cruise lines. For a Philippino crew member, earning $1000+ a month mean a world of difference. Average salary in Philippines is between $50 and $200 for most parts of the country. That's why you will find so many of them working abroad. Similar is for people from India, Indonesia etc and Eastern European citizens also represent a significant portion of the crew. For the record, a stateroom attendant on RCI can earn $3000+ a month easily, if he/she is good at the job and similar goes for bar waiters and bar tenders (depending on length of the cruise and demographics as well as how good you are in dealing with the guests). Similar situation is with restaurant workers. IT guys usually make $2500+ (assistant systems engineer) all the way to $7000+ for system engineers on some cruise lines. Engineers, especially 1st engineer, are raking in the dough. But if you work as a galley or utility cleaner, expect to have sub-$1000 salary. On a side note, no skills needed for that job.
8. Downright bullshit, especially since cruise lines were hit by massive fines previously (see Alaska, for example). Most cruise liners have state of the art water purification systems as well as blak water and grey water treatment plants. Water that comes OUT of these systems usually is so clean, you can drink it. One example: photo waste onboard RCI is treated through SILVER RECOVERY system. Law specifies that such treated waste should have less than 15 PARTS PER MILLION (ppm) of silver inside. Ship photo waste contains less than 5 ppm. If it has more than that, it is re-treated until it contains less, usually in range of 2-3 ppm. Only then it is offloaded for further treatment and NOT disposed in the ocean. Grey water and black water, after being treated to point og being drinkable, are usually discarded in the ocean 12 nautical miles from the coast while ship is moving above certain speed. Again, there liquids are SAFE, no oil is dumped into water unles it is accident or damage. Food is chopped into tiniest particles and fed to the fish, which is one of the reasons why you will notice dolphins and other marine animals near the fish – free lunch! 🙂 Also, COIN compared a 6 DAY TRIO from Southampton to NYC with a 9 hour flight? How stupid is that? Lets compare 6 DAY FLIGHT with a 6 DAY CRUISE TRIP and see number then. Finally, most new ships have expensive and very effective scrubbers now that remove pollution from air.
7. Nope. Ship doctors can do even surgeries onboard, but prefer to send people to shoreside hospital because, yeah, they're better equipped (duh!). But ship medical team response time is extremely fast (about 5 mins, if not faster) so you have more chance to survive. Expensive. Oh yes, but cheaper than a funeral and you can always take travel insurance, dummy. GI (gastrointestinal illness) or Norovirus are solely due to the dirty motherf**kers who don't wash their hands. Nothing to do with cruise ships – this is on you, passengers. Wash your hands after using the toilet!
6. Every company set their own rules. If you don't like it, play somewhere else.
5. EXTREMELY rare. For 12 years I see, most crime happened in ports of call, with St. Thomas *US Virgin Islands) being one of the worst areas. Crime on cruise ships is mostly due to domestic disputes between husband and wife or similar. Theft is rare as there are cameras everywhere and it is easy to get caught. Crime rate on ships is far below that on land. Most crime is actually guests trying to scam cruise line.
4. Don't go cruising in Somalia.
3. Bad weather happens. Accept it, move on. No good captain will risk his / hers ship in bad weather only so you can go shipping for a $5 magnet in a port. Safety of passengers and crew is the No. 1 priority AT ALL TIMES. It doesn't have to be weather, tho – I was on a hisp sailing to Barcelona when we switched ports due to demonstrations happening there. Local authorities couldn't guarantee our safety, so we went to a different port. Inconvenient? Yes. I love Barcelona! But more safe? Yes! I can always visit Barcelona when it is more safe.
2. If you're a drunk moron and you fall overboard, it is your fault. Nothing there is secret – everyone knows this happens from time to time but it is rarely a foul play, although it does happen. Again, not much different than life on the shore.

#8 waste is collected and stored in the bilge tank in most ships like tankers, cargo ships and its disposed of in accordance to INTERNATIONAL LAW "unregulated" my ass.
#4 cruise ships DONT travel with lights off at night

Lance Ludwig · August 14, 2018 at 4:40 am

Jonas Coryn · August 14, 2018 at 12:39 pm

You forgot to mention the biggest problem of all: cruiseship tourists overcrowding the city they dock. Venice or Barcelona for example are totally saturated with 1000's of old people wandering the streets and leaving the same day… They don't really contribute to the city's economy because they only stay for a few hours. There are already many protest groups of the city's inhabitants who are sick of cruiseships docking and overcrowding their cities!

Ted Schoenling · August 14, 2018 at 11:06 pm

Cruise is a great place to get the flu or noro virus.. No way would I want to be trapped on can full of people.

Ted Schoenling · August 14, 2018 at 11:07 pm

and the crews may well be compensated far better than they would have been in their own countries.. if they are there voluntarily it is none of your business how they are paid.

Nicholas Killmeier · August 15, 2018 at 12:21 am

Secret #11. The food isn't as good as your friends told you it was. Looking at you Norwegian Jewel. Your food sucks.

scoopmaster69 · August 15, 2018 at 12:36 am

I cringe whenever people compare cruises to real travel

Littleathquakes · August 15, 2018 at 12:38 am

PSVR HELP · August 15, 2018 at 6:59 am

My number 1 question is how cruise ships have thoughts/secrets oml

powerofsamurai · August 15, 2018 at 7:32 am

Very little truth here, especially about the delicious food?..really? The food is overly garlic flavored everything at dinner. Bologna and cheese sammiches at lunch and sub par egg everything with really good greasy bacon for breakfast.
How do I know??? Been on 7 cruises 3 different cos they all suck. Only thing really great is the cruise itself and the ports. The boats are shitty diseased laden diareah vessels that appear very luxurious is your idea of luxury is Disneyland candy stained seats and cheap old state rooms

scamp pad · August 15, 2018 at 8:21 am

You have to think though yes the cruse gives off more carbon than a plane BUT the cruse carries way more people and cargo than a plan

PreacherJimC · August 15, 2018 at 10:18 am

Ok, I get what your trying to say here but please if your going to choose footage for your videos please don't use US Navy photos. Some of the photo clips are of US Navy personnel and not cruise ship personnel.

You should fact checck your facts.
1 Ships don't dump anything over board
1 The pollution fact was false because they used outdated and uncalibrated equipent.

Reg Inald · August 15, 2018 at 7:46 pm

Another terrible video

Derek Allyn · August 15, 2018 at 8:05 pm

Your comments about the casino is misleading at best. Differing the payouts on blackjack or video poker isn't something regulated on land either. Most Vegas casinos have 6/5 blackjack for lower bet limits as well, and they tinker with the VP pay tables as well. Unless you are implying that the ship actually CHEATS – as in rigging the outcome of electronic games or stacking the deck in card games – to increase their odds, that whole section is utter bullshit.

You basically forgot every important item.

First of all, Ships don't produce that much CO2, the sulfur is a bigger issue.
Ship don't produce that much Bilge. Especially oily bilge.
Magic pipe?
Lloyd's valve?

John More · August 17, 2018 at 12:15 am

By watching that that tells me I'll never take a freaking Cruise

Devbo Slice · August 17, 2018 at 7:14 am

Who wants to get on a filthy moving hotel anyways. It's like a coed prison. Though I might get lucky on a ship, I dont want to get sick with food poisoning or get an std in the middle of nowhere.

James Lawson · August 17, 2018 at 7:46 am

Suzanne Bodette · November 16, 2018 at 10:15 pm

What they didn't mention that if you would need to abandon ship do to tragedy the first ones off that ship would be the crew. That's in a true emergency. I'd plan on hanging with the crew if that event should happen. Forget the scene in Titanic.

D G · November 17, 2018 at 11:49 pm

You are forgetting that helicopter pad if there is a serious emergency

Alastair Pullan · November 18, 2018 at 4:20 pm

Ok so the ship following the laws of the country they are in isn’t fully true. The ship has to follow the laws of where the ship is registered and where the company is registered. For example on Disney cruise line we followed laws from the Bahamas as the ship was registered there. The laws of UK as the company is registered there. And laws of USA as Disney is an American company.

Alastair Pullan · November 18, 2018 at 4:25 pm

Wow ok so I was aboard the ship when the cast member went over board on Disney cruise line. That was horrible for us and there is no explanation for what happened. Please do not make it in to something that it isn’t. It was extremely hard for all of us on board and for her family on shore. Please insure your facts are correct before making videos like this as you can create bad press and that’s not fair to the company or all people involved. There is a lot to this story that you might not know and you’re playing it off as if you do. That’s unacceptable.

Brendan Conway · December 10, 2018 at 3:12 am

One time on a cruise, one of the port of calls on my cruise with my family was cancelled due to severe weather, but didn't upset me, they still had plenty of things to do, like I got to meet the RCCL singers and dancers, and another occasion on Sammana in the Caribbean, me and my grandmother went on this tour originally my aunt and uncle could not make it, because the first reason was that there was no dock, 2- there was a tender that shuttled passengers to the island, and my aunt nearly lost her balance as a result and had severe back spasms and was dizzy, so on the island as I said it was just me and my grandmother along with another small group, and the man explained how hard it is to live on the island, at one of the places, one of the ladies in the group slipped and fell, some people try to rip you off like trying to sell you souvenirs, this also was at Labadee Haiti, and another incident involved the stateroom on another cruise, the cabin steward on the first day, left the cabin sloppy and everything seemed to be thrown around

Roger B · February 19, 2019 at 7:16 pm

In other words, this is mostly common sense and a lot of over exaggerations. The video is pretty much clickbait.

Not cruising on that trash ill get me one of those dudes from horror movies with the small boat.

Dire B · May 11, 2019 at 11:11 am

Or the flex seal boat

4th Doctor · May 17, 2019 at 4:06 pm

And every cruise line that I know of tack on a $12.00 per head "gratuity fee" that supposedly is pooled at the end of the cruise and is divided up among the service workers on the cruise ship. And if the cruise line is just pocketing that 12 bucks a day that I am charged instead of the service workers then that is a really douche nozzle form of fraud since the service workers are paid crap.

Nick Nation · June 23, 2019 at 10:21 pm

Aleksandar Grozdanoski · July 29, 2019 at 4:42 am

The scary thing is that after they radio for help, the ship will probably continue on its course and will not stop to look for you, if you ever fall overboard.

Thomas Conrow · October 3, 2019 at 12:46 pm

Check your facts. That would be amazing!

John Coffy · October 20, 2019 at 1:36 pm
