BAD BAD Behavior on Embarkation Day

When you stay on the ship during a B2B, you see some pretty strange things. Worse case ever is when cabin doors are open during the changeover/cleaning and prepping of cabins and I saw stay on board people going into freshly prepped cabins and removing mini bar items, robes, hangers etc to take back to their cabin.

I asked one couple what they were doing in an open suite by me and they said "helping ourselves to the extra goodies" ... I said that's disgusting and walked away and yes, I did report it.... No wonder some of the cabins do not have everything in them they are supposed to have. Bad bad bad behavior.

The mini bars should be locked between cruises, but I agree, that is classless. Yet the thieves felt entitled. They figured it was a victimless crime.

Pigs is the word that comes to mind.

I've never witnessed this, but WOW-- low class much?

That is really disgusting. I've seen people pulling the duvet off of a business class seat as they passed into Coach. The flight attendant eventually caught up with them but it was still pretty skanky behavior.

The word "thief" comes to mindAngry

Theoretically you are supposed to vacate your cabin at 9, enjoy breakfast and report to the Princess Theatre at 10:45 on a B2B day because all new cabins are left open for final inspection preparing for new cruisers. Technically, you have no business being on the cabin deck wandering about but people are doing laundry or sleeping late so it is not enforced. One would assume there are no "thieves" aboard but there you have it ... stupid people ...

People think because they spend money they're entitled to whatever they can get their hands on.

If no one is supposed to be in that area, why were you there observing the actions of the others who were not supposed to be there? Just wondering - I've never done a B2B so don't understand.

I was supposed to have same cabin for all 3 cruises but they made an error for last 4 days and I had to move a few doors down. I opted to move it myself rather than let the steward do it as the room wasn't ready until 9:30.

On this B2B, there were 560 people staying on board so they prefer that you clear the decks unless have a purpose of being there.

We've B2B cruised on PC a number of times. If you are an in-transit passenger, you may return to your stateroom to await the "report to" time for whatever location B2Bs are supposed to report. Personally, we prefer waiting it out in our cabin because of the cray-cray-crazy people coming and going on disembarkation day. Also, B2B cabins are sometimes the last to get cleaned (depending on resources) because a new passenger is not moving in so it doesn't matter that we are still there.
