My husband and I have been on MANY HS senior trips and never allow them to act like this. Always told security to let us know if they had any problems.

Of course, if it was just a bunch that got together and parents were the chaperones, you are at their mercy. Some parents aren't any better than the kids. I have seen this scenario on a cruise, too.
We all should follow your lead and kick up a stink to get this behavior stopped. I want the kids to have fun but safely and legally.
The chaperones were in the room next to ours and passed out the first night around nine-ish. I'll call that the plate throwing night, that night we were awaken around one am by loud bangs on the door across from us.

This kid was knocking on this door with his head, just like a billy goat. the words he spoke of will not be posted here. But it seemed to me that his room mate had passed out and he was outraged that he was locked out.
These parents did not chaperone , they were part of the problem.
Having the attitude that stated, not these kids ,there angels.
