That other thread got me thinking (after I read that woman's so-called problem from a few years ago), and what other folks think about the mandatory gratuity policies. Can't debate THAT anymore. The lines do what they do, and its never likely to change...BUT...Assume YOUR steward is inept, inefficient...Assume YOUR meals, in specialty restaurants,, the mdr's, and yes, even Jurassic Park (the buffets) are sub par, as in the service is bad, or the food poorly prepared. Assume there are maintenance issues around the ship, in YOUR cabin, or elsewhere that affect YOUR cruising experience.
What do YOU do? I have learned there is an actual art to complaining, and getting results. You can comment about your actions onboard, or after. I like to think experienced cruisers know what to do, and Im here to learn too.
