Have you ever been on a cruise and heard another passenger ask a question that made you think “WHAT?!?!?!?” Our friends at Ship Mate asked cruise directors from different cruise lines for the dumbest questions they were ever asked by passengers. Here’s our favorites from their list of 10 Dumbest Cruiser Questions.
“Is that fresh or salt water in the toilets?” – While we have no idea whether the water in the toilets is fresh or salt water, we will just go ahead and assume that it is fresh water. Honestly, we have never been tempted to find out.
“Has this ship ever sunk?” – We would have loved to hear what the cruise director said when asked this question. Especially since they usually have a great sarcastic sense of humor.
“How small does your face have to be to get a mini facial at the spa?” – We assume that this was caused from a language barrier, but either way, we got a kick out of this question.
“Why did I pay so much to have such an awful view of the parking lot?” – This question was asked while the ship was still in port on embarkation day when a passenger called the customer service desk.
“What do you do with the ice carvings after they melt?” – Maybe that is where the toilet water comes from…
“How do I know which ones are mine?” – This question was asked when a passenger was referring to the photo gallery. If you don’t recognize the passengers who are in the photo, there’s a pretty good chance that the picture is not yours.
“Does the crew sleep onboard the ship?” – Where would you expect them to sleep? On port days in hotel rooms?
“Why are the ruins in such bad shape?” – This question was asked while visiting the ruins in Rome.

Everyone will hear funny questions while on a cruise from time to time. On our last cruise, we heard someone ask if they allowed passengers to water-ski off the back of the ship. Have you heard a dumb question while on a cruise? We would love to hear it in the comment section below.
