I do agree with Bruce. There is a lowering of standards and many of today's cruisers want to dress and act however they want. I don't find it elitist. It is basically a statement of fact.
I'm sorry but Paul, your statement regarding TJ Maxx and McDonald's sounds elitist.
I think we have all seen people who shop at TJ Maxx and have eaten at McDonald's. I know a large number of them and all would be model cruisers with any cruise line from Luxury to Mainstream.
