My first cruise in 1983 on the Festivale. I sailed with 5 other ladies. Three in each room. One of the ladies in my room was out drinking with the crew most nights. Came in at 4:30 am one morning. Made a lot of noise and finally fell into bed and passed out. That morning we came in to St Thomas. we had a free morning then an outing in the afternoon. We tried to wake her to see if she wanted to go into town. No luck. So off we 5 went and really enjoyed exploring Charlotte Amalie. We got back in time to wake up our roommate and go to lunch before going on our tour. She spent the rest of the week whining that we left her alone that morning. Se was actually mad that we did not sit in the room and wait for her to wake up. We never heard the end of it the rest of the week. There is a lot more to it than just that but I will leave it there. The next year the same group plus others formed a group again. we made sure we did not room with her!
