Go to Buffet: More than a job, it is a necessity. Since first things first, if your stomach is crying out for some food, no choice but to satisfy it. Remember that nothing is pleasant if one is hungry. So, go straight to buffet the ship, which surely will be open the day of shipment.

Check the cabin: Now if, once your stomach satisfied, return to your cabin and check the facilities and furniture. Scroll through every detail of the cabin, the location and distribution and the comfort of the bed and if not adequate, ask for the change. Make sure that everything runs smoothly in the cabin, such as lights, air conditioning, television, telephone, safe, etc. Ensure that the wardrobe is all in order, especially if they check lifejackets. In the bathroom the shower ensure that work properly if there is no problem with hot water, the state of the shower curtain etc. The same review the operation of the toilet, as well as check for missing items not needed for personal grooming such as shampoo, soap, towels etc. If you find defects and missing, please advise your waiter or assistant. All this to ensure a pleasant stay in the cabin during the trip.
