I think the main reason for cruise people being nice is that to enjoy a cruise you must really enjoy mixing with other people.
That's right ! If one doesn't like people then don't go on a cruise.
If a misanthrope must go on a ship, then they should stay in their room and take the room service meals on the veranda.
If one ventures into the *public* areas, then learn to be gregarious...I say.
