So, just for fun, here are some of the common “code” words used by ship crew members, which we hope you’ll NEVER hear on your next cruise:
First, if you hear there’s a “code Oscar” or “Mister MOB” – start searching the water! The word MOB is an acronym for “Man Over-Board”… and “Oscar” refers to the international phonetic spelling of “MOB,” which is “Mike – Oscar – Bravo.” Basically, if you hear any of those terms, expect to see lots of crewmembers searching the water for the missing passenger.
Another term you DON’T want to hear on a cruise? That there’s been a “protein spill.” Which likely means a passenger got seasick somewhere. Also, if a crewmember talks about a “cone” on board, they’re referring to a passenger who’s being so annoying, they should be avoided – like “traffic cones” used on highways!
And what’s going on if you hear a crewmember talk about a “Mufasa?”That’s a reference to the Disney animated film “The Lion King,” in which the young lion Simba loses his father, Mufasa. And it means a child onboard has been separated from their parent!
