Cruise ships often have different colored or patterned carpeting running down the opposite sides of the ship. This is to help people remember which side of the ship they are on (port or starboard).   And, if they are paying attention, they can follow the correct color of carpeting back to their cabin, as long as they also are on the correct deck.

Disney is a cruise line that makes use of the pattern on their carpeting to help cruisers navigate the ship, according to this article::  If the carpeting outside your Disney stateroom is right-side up — with the ship funnels pointing forward — you’ll be walking towards the front of the ship.

So the next time you’re on a cruise ship, look down at the carpeting in front of your cabin. Remembering the color and pattern may help you find your way back.
