Do you know your starboard from your aft? :)
1. Always refer to your vessel as a ship not a boat.
2. The ship is always female. It's a "she" or a "her"
3. "Port" refers to the left side of the ship.
4. "Starboard" refers to the right side of the ship.
5. "Aft" refers to the rear or back of the ship.
6. "Bow" refers to the front of the ship.
7. A ship has decks not floors.
8. A ship has staterooms not rooms.
9. "Tender" is the vessel that you take to and from the shore when the ship is at anchor in a port.
10. The "bridge" is the place where the Captain and his crew steer the ship.
11. The "brig" is the ship's jail.
12. It is a "Purser's Desk" not an Information Desk or a Front Desk.
