Enjoying your vacation, as with anything in life, is a matter of attitude. If you go on your trip believing that your fellow cruisers are beneath you and nothing is up to your standards then you won't enjoy yourself. Take time to explore and do what you want and skip what you don't - except the safety drill.
Sounds like Dante will only be happy with a private yatch. On a yatch he could have everything he wants just so he can pay for it just like Blowfeld in the Bond sagas. He also reminds me of a recent from an airline pilot who says I am getting a free cruise because I am a pilot, but I still want to share the cabin to save expenses.
