Bruce, I am suggesting that the "norm" as seen by a cruise staff member differs substantially from the "norm" seen by the usual cruise passenger. Many of the statements you made seem to me to reflect that different viewpoint.
This is a very interesting discussion and I am enjoying reading the different viewpoints. I hope you will not be offended by someone who might disagree with your interpretation of your experiences, just as I will not be offended by those who disagree with mine.
