What QUACK Luck! What Is This Cruise Duck Craze All About?
Yay! Let me tell you about the amazing tradition of collecting cruise ducks on a cruise! Some cruise passengers are HUGE fans, and others not. There are even Facebook groups for Cruise Duck enthusiasts.
"Cruise ducks" are small rubber ducks that have become a popular tradition among some cruise enthusiasts. The idea is that passengers bring their own rubber ducks (all shapes and sizes) to the cruise and hide it in public places somewhere on the ship for others to find.
The concept of hiding cruise ducks started as a fun way for passengers to interact and engage with one another during the cruise. Passengers would leave their ducks in various locations throughout the ship, such as on a balcony, in a lounge area, or even in a public restroom.
Once a duck is hidden, the passenger who hid it might leave a note or a small message attached to the duck to encourage whoever finds it to continue the tradition by hiding it again in a different location. Passengers write their name, the cruise ship’s name and the date on the tag.
And the best part? Once you find a cruise duck, you get to keep it as a souvenir or hide it again for someone else to find! It's like a treasure hunt at sea!
It's a super fun way to explore the ship, interact with fellow cruisers, and add a little bit of excitement to the cruising experience.
However, it's important to note that not all cruise lines allow the hiding of cruise ducks. Some cruise lines consider it to be littering or disruptive to other passengers, so it's always a good idea to check with the cruise line's policies before bringing or hiding any cruise ducks.
