Good Monday Morning everyone,


I noticed this story this morning, and found myself totally apalled at some of the things mentioned in it. Especially the booing of the Captain at the countdown to midnight. At what point do you either resolve yourself to the fact that there is nothing you can personally do about it, or do passengers take matters into their own hands, or do you just hide in your cabin to avoid it? I just thought it might make for some interesting points of view.What is yours?

~Jackie

i think i would have made a 911 to the coast guard. i will tell you that while i have never experienced anything as terrible as they are describing i did that a rcl where the kids were horribly behaved. they ran all over the ship and knocked people down. they were left to their own devices and rcl put a 1 pm curfew in effect for kids.

I myself have never witnessed anything even close to what they were describing. I remember a few years back, on a Princess ship I think, a story about some youths that were totally out of control.They called it the great "brownie riot" because they started throwing trays of brownies left from a food display, then tossing lounge chairs about. I definitely would make sure that the proper authority on the ship is aware of what was happening, but other than that, I guess you could just hope that they get thrown off the ship!

Oh wow - that fiasco clearly trumps the rowdy kids I was with on Princess out of San Juan last fall. No doubt there were many who were glad to be back home again at the end of this P&O adventure.

I have known of both Celebrity and RCL to eject people for much less. When you are ruining other people's vacation, I think the cruise lines need to say something very sternly and you either shape up or get the boot!

i think on the holiday cruises there are so many many kids that the staff just can't handle it all. on the cruise i was on i want to even say it was not the teens that were troublesome. it was the 10 year old group. parents no where in sight ever and these kids just roamed the halls and elevators. door decorations? theh destroyed all of them. i don't know who you blame but some of them should have been put off the ship.

Ok, I tell kids I am old and mean...so on a Disney Cruise, my friend and I were getting in the elevator, just as a group of boys who had pushed all the buttons were attempting to get off...I stopped them, and made them ride the elevator the entire time and stayed with them. Every time the elevator stopped, I told people that these boys had pushed all of the buttons and wanted to appologize to them. And yes, I made them say they were sorry! When we finally go to the last floorand I let them off, I got threatened with "I'm going to tell my mom!!!" I said, please do! Never heard from the mom and we didn't have any more problems with kids pushing all the elevator buttons. Twisted Evil

I like your style! Some people forget they are parents as soon as they step onboard ship....

Yup, I'm reading. She actually sounds pretty cool. That's the kind of thing I would do. If you read the thread about tipping, you'll see where I went off on somebody I didn't know, because they wanted to remove the tips because they ate the buffet every day instead of the dining room.

So welcome Laura.

She's very cool!! We've known each other since we were toddlers Wink We actually meet in 1984 when we started working for the same public utility in SoCalif. Everyone mistakens us for being sisters, which we're fine with. Our daughters (along with Courtney) are 3 peads in a pod (my daughter being the oldest at 18, Court being 17, and Meb being 16).

I tell you, if we can get her on some of these CF group cruises, it'll be a helluva a swell time.

According to some people I AM the dark side! However, odds of converting me are pretty slim...although I do make trouble on a semi regular basis!!! Isn't that right Susan!!! Of course I will warn you, the way I warned everyone else...Don't start with me...you will not win and in the end it and it won't be pretty!!! BadIdea
