Cruise secrets: Ex crew members reveal the one food item you should never eat onboard

Cruise ship holidays are great for travellers who want to explore different destinations and holiday spots around the world on one journey. The cruise ship experience is like a floating hotel which includes cinemas, shows, buffets and a whole host of restaurants and entertainment. The beauty of a cruise is that you can enjoy days out in different destinations and still enjoy a good night’s sleep in your own bed.

Another agreed and explained why sushi is something to avoid on a cruise ship.

They said: “My ship was in the Pacific and we got sushi flown in from Japan.

“I would go for sushi once a week or so while I was on there.

“But there was one day where we came into port and the cargo crane door broke down and I was inside working on it first thing in the morning.

“About 1pm rolled around and we finally found the problem (shorted solenoid from condensation), got a replacement from a different system, and then cut out the mounting plate to fit the solenoid.

“We finally lowered the door and the food prep people went running outside, put the sushi pallet on a fork lift, and ran back in ASAP.

“Kinda lost the appetite for sushi after seeing that.

“Our ship was in a tropical environment and it was outside for hours.

“Maybe a one in a million story but it made me cringe when I realised what they were rolling by me.”

However, another former cruise worker disagreed, saying that they ate sushi regularly.

They said: “I worked on ships for three years and ate a lot of the sushi.

“It was good sushi, and I was fine.”
