I guess it's better to gripe on these boards than gripe on the ship. The cruise is my time to relax and forget about the "real world". So I get my frustrations out here and I feel better. Who knows, maybe a cruise crew member will read these and do something about the things we gripe about. My husband and I also thought about writting a book called "If I were in charge". This way we're sort of writting it to you all.
