1. (noun, derogatory) A passenger on a cruise ship.
Crew members refer to passengers as "cones" for two reasons: First, for the first few days of a cruise, passengers don't have their sea legs yet and tend to stagger into crew members in the narrow hallways. They must be dodged like traffic cones. The other reason to dodge cones is that they will invariably stop a crew member to ask a question when the crew member is in a hurry. It is an insulting term used behind passengers' backs.
2. (verb) For a crew member of a cruise liner to have sex with a passenger.
It is against most cruise lines policy for crew members to "fraternize" with passengers. Usually, "coning" is a fireable offense. Nevertheless, some "cone fiends" (a play on "coke fiend") find a thrill in regularly pursuing this dangerous pastime.
1. Sorry I was late, some fucking cone couldn't find her kid.
2. That moron assistant cruise director got shit-canned for coning, but the ass on that bitch would have almost been worth it!
