Sad . A lovely day but no ships 😘

Yes I write updates about cruise ships yet today and tomorrow no ships will be docking which is really due to regular schedules
we are now in the 7 – 10 day cycle
No more repositioning ships till the fall.
Shucks 😊
Thought I would add some thoughts today
I have been reading some cruise posts recently about some peoples expectation on a cruise
It amazes me that they act this way
fog horn
I want a credit as the fog horn kept me awake or inform the Captain to not sound during the night
I guess we will not check their cabin when an emergency muster is called.

comedy club night show
My teenage daughter should not hear jokes like that and I want a credit
What happened to babysitter or club or just not going

Group in study room
When you made an announcement over the speakers it disturbed us and that fog horn should be stopped
Mmmmm we are on a ship with 2,000. + souls

dancers costumes
We are insulted by the skimpy clothes they wear and demand a refund
Did they ever think that ship dancers wear more clothes then on a beach

looked at passenger too long
Officers greet passengers and one lady was so beautiful they spent a few seconds longer turning left while upset passenger next inline was upset
Wanted a free meal at least in compensation

strong currents cause late arrival
Passenger booked own excursion and was told they would loose 50 % or more
Wanted ship to refund the private excursion costs plus costs for being at sea an extra day
Do they ever read contracts and electing to save monies with a private tour now want ship to pay up ?

ships arrival mooring
Compensation for noise of anchor dropping each day
They chose the cabin……

Steak House
I am a vegetarian and booked the Steak House but it only ha done offering
Want a refund
Why book a steak house and did you read the menu posted outside prior

smoking
I paid good monies for this cruise and why should I not be allowed to smoke where I want
Forgot the rest of the ship who adhere to rules

So I am sitting here on my iPhone typing my thoughts and it still amazes me the me only expectations people have on a cruise and are so rude to the crew and other passengers
Any thoughts 😳    / Rob

 

Is The Worst Thing About Cruising The Passengers?

Click on title
I found this article from the CruiseMates.com web site and you might begin to see what happens when expectations are not met for some folks.
Sometimes I think it is similar to when people go to Land Inclusive resorts and have the same expectation because of the monies they have spent. As it is a large closed community for a duration of time then they tend to focus on things most of us accept.
Like the worn carpet, after experiencing a five course meal over a few days they complain if a similar dish is offered six days later, perhaps it is the entertainment or not being invited to the Captains table or drink was over charged.
Items they might have accepted at home when going once to a venue.
Somehow the whole ship is their vacation paid for and the rest of us are spoiling it for them.
Thoughts?

” Choose a ship that’s the right fit for you, and you’re a lot less likely to find things to gripe about. Of course there are those who believe the quality of the passenger has declined along with the declines they believe they’ve seen in the industry. Those folks should probably look for a different vacation, but many will continue to book their cruises, and then get onboard, and complain about almost everyone else on the ship. Those are the passengers who can “ruin my cruise”
