Dealing with Rude People on a Cruise
Honestly on a cruise it depends. If the chogs are out in force, keep an eye out,, but ask the staff to remove clothes and stuff. I've seen fights break out over moved personals. If someone cuts the line, so what? Where are you going? There's still plenty of food, or just recut the line in front of them.
It's not easy sometimes, but why ruin your week?
BAK61 I respect EVERYTHING you said...I truly enjoyed reading your post.
OK. We have been on 18 cruises +\- over 20 years. We've seen a lot of changes. You have to be willing to accept there are rude people. Some treat you as if you aren't even there. Back in the days of Grand Buffets, I saw someone take what would be considered more than his fair share of lobster. Keep in mind, there ain't a lot of lobster to go around, and this guy not only took 2, he tried to put 2 more on his kids plate. This after positioning himself near the front of the line, and once the doors opened, cut in front of everyone else to get to those lobsters.
What I hate the most are the people who have no casino etiquette. The ones that sit at a blackjack table, mid-shoe, and want to start playing. Really? Etiquette dictates asking the others if the seat is taken, and then, waiting til the shoe is dealt out. I also blame the dealer for dealing them in. Usually I just get up and leave, but I do manage to voice my displeasure,somehow.
Though anyone can be rude, at any given time, there is one group of people (I can't name them) that tends to be more rude,in general, than others. Like I said, I can't name them by region, but think 80s super group of the ProgRock genre.
Just some personal experiences, there are others. Like trying to save a dozen lounges by the pool, or entire rows at a show. No, I am not kidding. And they get indignant when you sit down in "their" row.
Oh well, too bad. We all have to cruise together.
Is that better moderator?
I try and not let other people get to me while on vacation... but I will never forget a cruise that I took that stopped in Messina. We went on an excursion to the musuem and someone in the tour group literaly tried pick a piece off this 300 year old Mosaic. I wanted to lay down and die right there out of total embrassment.
Of course,if I'm getting bad cards,and I get a BJ, the guy to my left is gonna be pissed.
