In the end, they go into the trash bin.
It's a shame that so many people spend part of their hard-earned vacation time writing (hopefully) constructive feedback that cannot be understood.
This does not suprise me, but I am disapointed in this comment.
When I fill out a feedback card I like to be very thoughtfull.
I make sure to point out, by name, who made my trip special. ( I tip too)
I am very clear about what I like and very clear about how I think things can be improved. I try not to *****... it comes across badly.
It would seem to me, if you like to cruise this is your opportunity to mold the cruise experience.
I do not let my wife fill out the feedback cards. It would look like a prescription.
