Passenger & Crew Bar
« on: May 22, 2020, 03:39 PM »
I just had an idea, and wondered if anyone had ever done it before, or if anyone thought it was a good idea...

Within the passenger area of the ship, have one bar or coffee area that is open to everyone on board - all passengers, and all crew.  It seems like a nice idea, and could benefit various people.  I would have said have a crew bar open to passengers, but that would seem to be a security issue.

The idea on paper sounds good but in reality....

This does happen on smaller ships where perhaps there may not be a separate crew bar / wardroom and where off duty officers can relax and are happy to interact with passengers if approached - it happened on the MS Fram (Hurtigruten) earlier this year and a chance to talk with the captain / chief engineer / pursers and other officers in the evening was a regular feature on the RMS St Helena during my four voyages.

The intimate nature of these ships also means that there is naturally much more contact on such ships between officers and passengers generally .
