Every time I see a post like this I think the same thing.
The cruise was doomed from the start. The cruise line just makes it possible for you to make your own fun. I have never understood the desire for someone to require the cruise line to treat them like royalty.
Sometimes you have to learn to roll with the punches so it does not ruin the whole trip, for you and all that are with you.
I have now stepped down off my soap box.
