Has anyone released a book on a cruise ship? What are your thoughts on it?

 

Not on a cruise ship but on the ferry from Talinn to Helsinki.
I got a nice JE.

Yes
I've taken a few cruises and have released books on board the ship each time.

Most of the ships had libraries and one library had a dedicated book exchange cabinet. I simply released books there.

The one ship that didn't have a dedicated library had a book trolley that was brought to a certain lounge at pre-set times. The crew member that played ship librarian (eg took note of which passenger borrowed which ship-owned book) was happy for me to "donate" my own books and put them on the bottom of the trolley.

On each cruise, I noticed several passengers wandering around with books, especially on sea days. I'd see people reading on deckchairs out by the pool or in a quiet lounge. And at the end of each cruise, there always seemed to be a sudden rush of books left in the library on the last day!

I didn't bother releasing books elsewhere around the ship as it looked as if they'd be cleared away pretty quickly by crew members.

PS Releases can also be made on shore excursions too!
