Stena Line tells booze cruisers to behave

Poles “not seafarers and don’t fully understand the rules”
Swedish ferry operator Stena Line is cracking down on booze cruisers on its popular twice-a-year Entertainment Cruises between Karlskrona and Gdynia in Poland, which launched two years ago.
It says the cruises too easily get out of control and is asking passengers boarding in Poland to sign a document that they have read and understood the rules before being allowed on.
“Poles are not seafarers,” Agnieszka Zembrzycka, Stena Line’s spokesperson in Poland, explained. “They’re not used to boat travel and don’t fully understand the safety rules. That’s why we want to remind this group in particular […] about the rules and we do that with this document.”
She added: “It’s supposed to be silent in the cabins during the night. You can have fun at the nightclub, not in the cabins.”
Entertainment Cruises attract between 500 and 1,000 passengers at a time but have also proved harder to control than other cruises.
