Pet Peeves about Cruisers

1) People who stop on the gang plank while boarding to take photos of each other ... one quick snap - no problem - but when they block the walkway for group shots, are digging in their bag for cameras, I want to scream. Step to the side folks!

2) The Know-it-All Cruiser who feels it is their duty to tell people what to do or not do. They run around the ship offering unsolicited advice and 90% of the time are wrong. Don't give advice unless asked!

3) The Irritable and Rude - For once in your life, try to be pleasant and not complain. Breathe, relax and enjoy - stop looking for things that are wrong and inflicting your negativity on everyone around you.

I hate the chronic complainers who want to drag others into their misery fest.

Me too - Love people who make the best of every situation!

One of my pet peeves is when I'm in line at the omelet station and someone is holding up the line by ordering 4 omelets for family and friends who do not feel like standing in line. Angry

Parents who let their children misbehave.

Children who let their parents misbehave......Wink

Seriously, I've only seen a few occasions where some one was raising a ruckus and had to be put in their place. A little old lady pretty much scolded a man who was being too loud and obnoxious, she told him to go to his room and nap..... It was funny because he did.....

I hate seeing the people lining up at the service desk to complain about every little thing and then demand that the daily gratuities be removed from their bill. Like buy a clue people, the daily gratuity is a part of the cost of cruising, deal with it. And yes things are not always perfect, deal with it. There are times when help is needed from the service desk, that is what it is there for. The people there are friendly and helpful. I hate seeing them take abuse from rude passengers.

Yes! Especially when I'm cruising. Like... you're on a cruise ship.... why are you complaining?

I totally agree with this. I have only one time wanted NOT NEEDED to go to customer service. I had a question about my cruise cash that I bought and I did not see it on the Kiosk. She showed me exactly what was on my account and it was all good. I should have checked my cabin tv and I would have seen it.

Amen ... not only on cruises, but restaurants, excursions ...Sad part is the "cuteness" parents see isn't necessarily enjoyed by others but they just don't get it.

People who can't do without their brand of soda for a week, and ask how much can they carry on. That's a big one.

believe me, there are others
