Sorry, but I have a small rant.

Why do some people think they need to bash a cruiseline/ship that didn't meet their expectations, when if they had done a little research before hand, they would have discovered that particular cruiseline/ship wasn't what they were wanting in the first place and would have saved themselves a lot of frustrations? I see so many people that get frustrated that there's nothing to do on a smaller ship compared to the larger ship they went on before. HELLO!!!! Of course there won't be...It's a smaller ship! Save yourself a lot of disappointment and do some research to find out which cruiseline/ship is right for you and what you are looking for (and save us the headache of having to read through your negative comments that aren't really justified because you didn't plan right).

Rant over.

Because of this site, I knew what to expect and to not sweat the small stuff. My DH and I enjoyed ourselves so much because we just went with the flow. We people watched (A LOT) and met a really cool couple from our own city that kind of helped us figure things out on how things worked. Definitely going to use those tip when we go on our next cruise once we figure out the lay of the ship. I even read where someone suggested bringing an air freshener for the room and I am so glad we brought a Glade Plug in because the bathroom was a bit musty but that was ok. We now have a scent from the plug in that every time we smell it, takes us back to that first cruise and I am so thankful for those memories.

Ditto to all. I don't get those people who let things that are beyond the control of the ship/crew to ruin their vacation. How is it their fault that it rained? What do you mean your trip was ruined because it was so hot?? Ridiculous!

The complaint that really made me shake my head was, the one where the person went on a snorkel adventure and complained that there were real fish in the water and some of them were big. I just wondered where she (yes it was a female) thought fish lived.

OMG .. I love that one ... what was she expecting? Tiny plastic fishies in fake water?

I have no idea. Maybe she thought that part of the ocean was fish free and only for people. She never returned to answer all of the questions posted to her.

OMG!!!! I remember that posting.

Those are the postings I miss the most from the Funvillian days.

That's the plan, Thanks Happy

If I recall, she took a good deal of "teasing" Funvillian style.

Maybe that's why she never answered the fundamental question. That is one of lasting memories after all this time.Big Smile

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way! I'm about to go on my 3rd cruise and I fully intend to do some people watching/listening to see if I can help any complainers out. BTW, loving all these stories! Anyone have any others?Happy
