Please re-read my post...

I think you will find that I was not referring to 'same thinking, social or economic status'.

I was attempting to make a 'general comment' about manners. A 'boat load of people' with the same mind set on 'manners and courtesy'...that isn't boring! The commonality of good manners and respect for others is actually a solid bases for pleasant passenger interaction no matter your background or education, and can even cover over some cultural faux pas.

Of course the comment about the differences in cruise lines might have been a bit confusing...sorry about that...

You asked, “How do I determine how similar or how much common ground I need before I have a conversation??

The one requirement that I have for a good conversation is, every other word NOT BE a curse word!

Oh...and they don't spit on me when they talk...
