The Cruise Lady: Killer Shoes!

Killer Shoes!

Killer Shoes!

Unfortunately, that’s what many tyro cruisers are choosing to wear these days. Good idea? Not if you ask the young “fashionista” Lorraine witnessed do a “face flop” while attempting to transverse a tile-floored expanse in her apparently brand- new platform stilettos. Fortunately, nothing more than her pride was shattered.

Yes – they look great! Sure – they’re the newest style! But, is making a “fashion statement” worth risking life and limb? Okay…some of you are probably saying “you bet!” – LOL!

Bad Cruise Shoes

Keep in mind folks, walking onboard a moving vessel is NOT like walking on terra firma! Cruise ships, while highly stabilized, remain subject to “ocean motion!

No, Lorraine is not suggesting “granny shoes” – just common-sense footwear! Stuff happens – and you sure don’t want to wind up in the infirmary because you “fell off” your towering heels!

If you must wear them – there are several precautions, you can take! If those new soles are slippery – rough them up with sandpaper – or better yet, Dr. Scholl’s makes thin self-adhesive rubber strips that will increase traction. A little foresight could prevent a fashion faux pas like falling on your butt!

“Seasoned” cruisers are fully aware of the pitfalls of favoring fashion over safety! It’s guaranteed that the pool deck will be wet – it’s guaranteed that passengers will spill slippery stuff and not report it to a staff member, much less, clean up after themselves (that’s a future blog) – and it’s guaranteed that one or more cruisers will “take a tumble” and try to blame the cruise line!

Check the cruise lines’ FAQ’s regarding suggested apparel – you will find two magic words to remember when cruising – “RUBBER SOLES.”

# HAPPY CRUISING!
