Employee reveals “creepy” cruise ship facts

A former cruise ship employee has opened up about some secrets that people might not know about cruise ships. 

Lauren worked on cruise ships for two years and shared a TikTok about the “creepy” rooms onboard. 

“There’s some crazy stuff about cruise ships you might not know as a guest,” she said. 

“I used to work on a cruise ship and I find it so interesting... like all these little things that are kind of creepy. There’s a morgue on board and there’s a jail on board.”

She explained that anything could happen on board cruise ships and it was important to be ready. 

If someone dies, the person is placed in the morgue, and if a traveller breaks the law or causes any trouble they are taken to the jail on board the ship. 

Lauren went on to explain that there’s no “deck 13” onboard cruise ships either due to superstitious reasons surrounding the number. 

“It’s a superstitious thing. Sorry, that’s weird. We’re on a cruise ship and you’re making me feel like superstition comes into play.”

The now viral video has been viewed more than 850,000 times with many saying they didn’t know about these tiny details. 

“I don’t know if it’s just me, I thought if someone died on board they would throw them off,” someone said. 

“Death is everywhere and inevitable. It’s better to have a place to process grandma Ruth who had a heart attack at sea rather than having to go to land,” another said.
