- Deck Chairs
Of course everyone wants to be at the pool! A lot of passengers want to be at the pool all morning, afternoon and early evening. However, holding deck chairs for a long period of time it’s just wrong and inconsiderate. There are people that hold chairs for others and the people do not even show up. There are also people that leave their stuff and you do not see them for hours. I don’t have a problem with people that are swimming or that go grab some lunch and come back to eat it there. The problem is when you are being greedy and selfish.
- Obnoxious and careless adults
There are a handful of adults that want to be the center of attention. They will do anything in their power including ridiculous things just so they are noticed. Please keep in mind that these include adults that are not under the influence.
- Not taking care of your kids
I cannot stress this one enough! There are so many parents that do not take care of their kids. So, Kudos to the parents that are not under this category. Firstly, you have some parents that will let their kids do anything even if it’s not appropriate. It is the parents’ job to stop it before the crew member steps in. That is just embarrassing, especially when you are right there. Secondly, you have parents that are not even present and let their kid(s) roam around by themselves. I am not talking about teenagers either, I am talking about children. Please keep an eye on your kids, it truly is appreciated.
The buffet goes hand in hand with unsupervised children. There are so many children that just run to the buffet or ice cream machine without an adult and either make a mess or touch everything. That is just disgusting! I would not want to eat food that has been touched and I am not sure where their hands have been. However, adults do that too or let their kids do it. Therefore, I think everyone should be more respectful at the buffet and think of others as well.
- Disrespecting the crew
The crew is extremely nice, helpful and works extremely hard. They truly made my experience a wonderful one and I am very appreciative. Also, the crew calls you by your first name and a lot of them remember your name which truly makes you feel at home. On top of that, the crew members do not have any days off for 6 or 7 month. Can you imagine not having any time for yourself except the hours between your shifts? I would literally have a heart attack. The crew literally does not have room for a bad day and I admire them for that. Therefore, seeing passengers being rude towards them and not cordial makes me angry. Have some manners and at least say please and thank you. They are humans too and deserve respect because they are the ones that make your vacation a great one!
