I wonder if I place a book on the chair of a slot machine in the casino I could lay claim to all the days winnings on that machine. I am new to cruisemates and still learning my way around so i do apologize if I post anything wrong. We have just planned our 4th cruise. I fell in love with cruising immediately during my first cruise. I have yet to get in the pool on a ship partly because usually there are no seats. Even on the serenity deck, there are seldom any unused chairs. Mostly people sleeping in them. I think it is great that Carnival is attempting to curb this problem, but I think it will be extremely hard to police and enforce.
