I'm getting a few different answers from various sources on this topic and am just wondering if anyone here can add any information...
I have a friend that works on the ship that I will be cruising on in a few months. We meant on land via family friends. We would like to spend time together during his off hours but don't want it to be an issue for him. Is there a legitimate way to do this without him getting in trouble?
I know he has already received approval from his supervisor for us to have dinner togehter. By the way, I have also discussed this with the line's corporate office and they told me I could fill out a form at the purser's desk when I board and it wouldn't be a problem. Does this sound correct?
Any help would be appreciated--thanks in advance.
This shouldn't be any problem as long as you are open about it to his supervisor and the cruise line. It's correct that there normally is a form to fill out, after that you are considered cruising "as his friend".
Thanks for the additional information. I know he is taking care of things he needs to on his end with his supervisor, but I thought I also needed to sign something to alleviate any appearance of impropriety, e.g. passenger-crew meeting onboard? I guess I can call corporate again and see what they say...
Again thanks for the additional information. If you can think of anything else I may have overlooked, let me know
