John makes a point that we have talked about many times and that is the universal complaint about sun deck chair hogs.
We just came back from a cruise and some friends of our from a different cruise with same issue.
The only time the sun deck is truly empty on a warm or sunny day is on a shore day though toward the bow or stern you might find something but not around the pools.
Admittedly you cannot design a ship to have all 3,000 to 5,000 passengers on deck 14 but as ships get larger this becomes a larger issue.
What is the solution, I'm not sure but certainly if I will remove your car from a parking lot in a mall when the sign states 3 hours then we should mark the lounge chair if empty with a book or towel , in like manner
