Does anybody actually READ the cruise contacts?

I'm seeing all these complaints about cancelations, itinerary changes, etc. Don't these people read the cruise contracts? Or do they think it doesn't apply to them?

Like most in the current society ... rules are for everyone but them ... nothing is their fault they are perpetual victims

As closely as I read my new employment contract.

I admit I only peruse it. I did read this one because I was looking for some pertinent info. Having found what I was looking for ( but not the answer I wanted ), I will have to make a decision on our upcoming cruise.

I read my cruise contract every cruise. It's tedious and boring, but it's better to be safe than sorry. It's best to know what you're actually entitled to rather than just assuming.

I read it just to make sure I'm aware of policy changes etc. If I'm signing my name to a contract, I want to know and understand what I'm agreeing to.

I read it but accept the fact that most contracts are written for the benefit of the cruise line not the cruiser and choose to sail anyway. That said, I have great success with any problems or issues I have ever had with Princess and find them easy to work with in spite of the "contract".

I start to read it.
