Cruise staff share 'most bizarre' passenger request onboard – 'completely blow my mind'

Beard oil in the room

Toiletries for guests are usually supplied in their cabins, which includes high-end shampoo and conditioner. Cruise Croatia explained one guest asked for beard oil to be supplied alongside the other complimentary lotions.

“Weird – but if you don’t ask, you don’t get!” they said.

Eggnog behind the bar in August

It is not unusual to receive requests for specific beverages but the luxury cruise company admitted eggnog was the strangest one they had in the summer months.

Cruise Croatia said: “But who are we to judge someone’s tipple of choice?! If they like it, they like it.”

“I would like an extra cabin to use as a wardrobe”

Many passengers love to bring a lot of outfits on board for the different activities the cruise offers. However, asking to use another cabin to hold all clothes is not acceptable, they explained.

“Can I park the boat when we arrive in Dubrovnik port?”

“One does not simply ‘park the boat’,” Cruise Croatia explained. However, a guest asked if he could park the boat instead of the captain. “He needed to get a reality check.”

A personalised mug in their room

Sharing a cabin is not for everyone, and guests have asked to have personalised mugs to be ready and waiting in their cabin.

A Japanese zen garden in their room

All of Cruise Croatia’s ships are designed to provide the utmost comfort and relaxation, so the company was particularly surprised that one guest requested that a Japanese zen garden be placed in their cabin. The ornament, that by raking its sand, is supposed to bring calm and focus to its surroundings.


Director of Cruise Croatia, Graham Carter, said: “As luxury travel specialists, we often receive requests from guests for things that will make them more comfortable and we are always more than happy to fulfil these if it means that their experience will be more enjoyable.

“But, that being said, there are some requests that completely blow our minds.

“Asking for a morning newspaper or a 6am wake-up call? Totally acceptable.

“Asking if you can ‘drive’ the boat and ‘park it’ upon arrival into a busy port? Not so much. Those ones certainly make us laugh though, and if you don’t ask you don’t get!”
