High-seas hygiene is irrelevant for these filthy cruise ship passengers.

A woman who works for a cruise company has revealed the disgusting thing that some guests do while on her boat.

Lucy Southerton, 28, told the Daily Star that putrid passengers refuse to wear shoes and traipse barefoot around the vessel for the entire time they’re on board.

“Crew members generally make fun of passengers who deem it acceptable to walk around the cruise ship with no shoes on,” she stated.

“They will weave in and out of shops with no shoes on,” the cruise worker continued.

“They will even think it appropriate to go to the theatre with no shoes on because technically they are indoors.”

Southerton urged prospective passengers to put on footwear anytime they leave their cabins.

Not only is the practice more hygienic, it also means workers won’t mock you for being dirty.

Meanwhile, Southerton also revealed her hot tip for those who are hitting the high seas for a cruise.

“I think the biggest mistake that people can make when they are on a cruise is not being polite to every crew member,” she declared.

“You don’t know what you’re going to need and which crew member is going to be able to solve your issues and it has happened before where a passenger has been incredibly rude to a crew member that they have later needed during their cruise,” the expert continued.

Southerton said you’re more likely to score freebies and upgrades if you stay on friendly terms with staff.
