Bad Cruise Habits To Avoid: Part Two
Online you will find lists of categories of annoying cruisers, bemoaning the fact that too many people become annoying, irresponsible and selfish on board. I wanted to share another thought about another bad habit every cruiser should avoid.
Do not be a chair hog.
This topic seems to cause the most discussion, upset and
complaints about fellow passengers. The three main areas it takes
place is (1) around the pool or sun decks where guests place books,
magazine and towels first thing in the morning on loungers and then
head off to eat or do other things, (2) in the buffet restaurants
where people book tables and then go off to fetch food and (3) in
the theatres. Although all cruise lines have a policy on booking
loungers and chairs, they are usually not very strong in enforcing
it. The reason is that the crew tend to take the flack from irate
passengers who are seat hogs. Some lines, like the Carnival Group
ones, say they will remove items left unattended for 30 minutes and
may do. However, if everyone just used loungers and chairs in the
restaurant when they needed them the problem of finding a seat
would be removed in most all cases.
