Default Nautical terms while at sea

take this with a "grain of salt" as that is what it is intended for. Your accomodations are a cabin, stateroom, or suite not just a room. The bathroom is called the "head" the front of the ship is the "bow" the rear of the ship is the "stern" when moving about the ship if you are heading toward the bow you are going "forward. If you are heading towards the stern that is "aft" the left side of the ship is"port" the right side is "starboard" you embark and disembark you do not get on and off the ship. Anything else??? <VBG>
