CRUISING is one of the showbizlion.com’s favourite pastimes, whether it’s on the med, in the Caribbean or closer to home shores. 

It’s important therefore to know what to do when you are on board your ship or yacht. 

If you’re single it’s even more important to know the right kind of etiquette. 

We got some tips from Seeking.coma community where singles are empowered to find relationships on their terms, encouraging upfront and honest communication for an elevated dating experience.  

When you date up, you’re no longer going to be sitting in dive bars and scratching in the peanut bowl. With an upgrade in the quality of your date, comes an upgrade in the location too. It’s essential then, when you’re invited on those Summer cruises along the coast, that you know your docksiders from your flip flops, and your jet skis from your underwater scooters.

    Your toes will be on display, so make sure that they don’t have any benign fungus growing there. It’s best to opt for a good manicure regardless of your gender, and open-toed sandals that can easily be removed when you hit the decks.

    Life jackets aren’t just a decorative accessory. It’s essential to listen to the crew’s advice on how to stay safe, and remember to pack a sunscreen that is waterproof, as well as to apply it before and after going into the water. Watch out for sea spray when walking on the bow of the yacht; you won’t want to take an unplanned dip in the deep end, and try not to capsize the jet ski when you’re trying to impress the rest of the boat; while they will come to a halt, they can be heavy, and if you’re too far out, swimming back might not be a pleasant experience. You would be surprised just how easy it is to flip one over.

    On yachts, it is important to dress the part. While throwing on a bikini or one piece is easy, chances are you’re going to have to transition from daywear, to night wear for dinner. A coverup that can double as a classy evening piece is essential, as well as a change of clothes for when you’re heading back to shore. This is the chance to leave high heels at home, but also the chance to show off a beautiful pair of sandals or an ankle bracelet. Think: a wrap dress that you can easily throw on over a costume for an intimate dinner with your date, and an elegant high ponytail to keep your hair untangled.

    Don’t drink too much. While sundowners on a yacht is probably the pinnacle of human existence, it is better to err on the side of caution when deciding whether or not to open that next bottle of Dom. Dehydration from the sun and seawater, as well as the impulse to have a “hold my glass and watch this” moment are all factors in why it’s better to switch to water after you’re a few drinks in.

    Just because you’re on a luxury yacht, that doesn’t mean you have to stay glued to the deck all day. The water is where the fun is, so slip into a wetsuit, and get out on the water. This is the place to try something new, to jump on that jet ski, or to take your life into your hands on the hoverboard. Just make sure you tighten up that life jacket, and refer to tip no.4.

So there you have it, the ideal way of behave at sea. Now let’s become sea lions ;)

- This places the chef as more lusted-after than Jonathan Ross, Richard Madeley, Paul Hollywood and James May, who also ranked highly in the study. 

- Other surprise findings from the analysis include that Piers Morgan is sexier than Paul Hollywood, while Adrian Chiles proved the least lusted-after. 

Glasgow born TV chef and presenter Gordon Ramsay has been named the sexiest TV host, according to fans, following a comprehensive Twitter sentiment analysis. 

The research, conducted as part of the Self-Made Celebs study, revealed that Ramsay has seen the highest influx of positive tweets that also include the word ‘sexy’ over the last year - beating out other male presenters to the top spot of sexiest TV personality. 

The Twitter sentiment analysis was conducted on Tweets mentioning any male/female TV host over the last year, and assigns a positivity and negativity score to each. 

Chef Ramsay has seen the highest influx of positive tweets that include the descriptor ‘sexy’ over the last year, followed by other male hosts Richard Madeley, Jonathan Ross and - surprisingly - David Attenborough. 

Ramsay - host of Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares - also beat out other fan favourites, including Gregg Wallace, Piers Morgan, Jeremy Vine, Dan Walker and even Martin Kemp.

At the other end of the scale, it’s Adrian Chiles, Noel Edmonds, Alexander Armstrong, Ant McPartlin and Bear Grylls that sit at the bottom of the ranking, according to fans.

“It's also encouraging to see that the majority of interactions around the male stars on Twitter are positive and complimentary - particularly given the volatile nature of online forums.”
