Lanyards are for losers...

Recommended Posts

Yet another first world problem with a variety of answers...bottom line...it just does not matter.  I do not wear one onboard, but have worn many over the years for different ocassions...so...love the person who got a laugh, after just recovering from knee surgery, as it helped his overall wellbeing!

 

I have been both a winner and a loser, according to the title!

LOL at the thought that lanyards are tacky.  They may not be a fashion statement, but for many reasons they're practical.  It's mostly to keep me from losing my card, not only when I'm out and about, but also in our room.  We hang them in a place that makes it hard to forget 'em as we're headed out the door.  I don't want to carry a purse around on the ship and many of my outfits are either pocket-free or with shallow enough pockets that I'd be picking my card up off the deck (if lucky enough to realize it had fallen out) waaaay too many times throughout the cruise.  Those of you who don't like lanyards should thank me for all the times I've turned in your lanyard-free card that you left in a machine in the casino.  :classic_biggrin:  It's a lot harder to forget it with the lanyard hanging out of the machine!

Is the Sea Pass available on the Edge app with no need for a physical card?

I’ve seen worse fashion faux pas on a cruise than wearing a lanyard! But everyone is on holiday and should be allowed to do/wear what they like ! 

 

Im all about the lanyards tbh because I’m so forgetful I’d have my sea pass lost within minutes!

We use one of these when we go on shore. Holds our seapass, some folded money, and credit card (just in case). I leave the lanyard on mine but keep it in my pocket until I am getting back onboard the ship.

Long time cruiser, always afraid I’ll lose my card.  Just purchased a new laynard.  To each his own.

We have officially hit bottom.

Another reason to wear one while in the pool, since I seldom bring my snorkel gear there. 

 

Plus, how could I order a drink while in the pool?

To the person who asked about Disney Magic Bands, they are waterproof and are fine to wear in the pool. So that won't be an issue if cruise lines ever decide to go that route.

I could wear my last Sign and Sail Carnival card, and flaunt my Gold status on X, Hal, and Princess.

 

"I know it's the wrong ship, but I'm Gold over there.  What are you here, Select?  Pssshh."

 

LOL, I was thinking of bringing my souvenir Carnival lanyard. It's got a nice ship's wheel locket plus the Carnival branding on the webbing strap. Should light up any snobs near by.

Many clever doctors wear stethoscopes at work, but i'm sure none would want to wear one on holiday

 

In recent years wearing lanyards has become something associated with work (and even schools now) - I suspect that the vast majority of people who work in a corporate environment or in a public building have to wear these things.  Gone are the days when you could be rude and surely to someone and they wouldn't have a clue who you were.

 

 

 

 

Correct, most of us wear them every day, all day and not just ‘high level executives’. My DS has to wear one at school too. I personally seem to have a problem with some of the materials used, leading to itching around my neck. Consequently, I’ve changed to the clip-on type for work.

 

Perhaps I just can’t be a loser 😎 🤣.

I do have a lot of colleagues complaining about itching around the neck, and especially from female colleagues... (Probably men mostly wear shirts with collar, so the lanyards are mainly on the collar rather than the neck)

 

I believe it's the stitches to prevent the edges from fraying, or the edges themselves, that are causing the itching

These always leak whenever I take one in the ocean.

Definitely not a newby but I love my lanyard. Most of my clothes don't have pockets and I don't want to be that person that takes the card out of their underwear and hands it to the bar staff.

Love these. Mine are waterproof and put $, ID, sea pass,CC in and loop through a 'D' ring in my cargo shorts pocket  which means it is inside my cargo pocket.  Great for excursions, both dry and wet.

I don't wear them and never paid attention to those that do.
