People are complex but you can always count on them to do things under pressure. The right thing and the wrong thing.
I enjoy camping. at sea would be a bonus.
The cruise was about over anyway and much of it was fun. They got that part free. Plus another cruise. Plus the camping trip.
I think the people who couldn't/wouldn't/refused to follow simple instructions certainly made it worse for themselves and sometimes others. There was relatively little criticism of the crew and mostly praise.
The officers and crew couldn't exactly force people at gunpoint to follow instructions.
