Default Falling because of bathroom threshold.

How many of you have tripped and fallen due to elevated bathroom thresholds? This happened just as we were pulling out of port. I was not acclimated in the room yet and there were no warning signs in the bathroom or outside of the bathroom. I was hurt pretty badly. I am usually very steady on my feet. Any others trip going in or out of the bathroom? Thanks for any reply.

I do that all the time on cruises! I've never gotten badly hurt though, I'm sorry that you did A lot of times it's just something to get used to, as with any new place. If you keep forgetting, sticking a post-it by the bathroom door that says "step up!" can help.

Hi Elizabeth,

I'm also sorry that you were hurt . Even after 4 cruises I still have a problem with the thresholds all over the ship!

Then, just to make things worse, when I get home and I'm still "swaying", I keep stepping up when I go into another room !

It's just something you have to get used to-quickly!
