Default What Do You Call It?

It doesn't matter what the "proper" terminology is, or if you know it. What do you call it?

- Fore and aft, bow and stern, front and back, pointy end and rear?

- starboard and port side, right or left, this side - the other side?

- galley or kitchen?

- showroom or theater?

- cabin, stateroom or box?

- disembark, debark, or get off?

- excursion, tour, or opportunity to drink?

Talking Nautical terminology

A newly enlisted sailor made the mistake of telling the Chief that he was going to the "back of the ship."

The Chief came out with some blistering language and ended up by saying, "Sailor, remember that the back of the ship is aft, the floor is the deck, the latrine is the head, and the kitchen is the galley!! If you forget the right terms again, I will throw you out that little round window over there."
