First off it is my understanding that the porters are not Carnival employees. If this is correct then who employs the porters? Could it be accurate that the porters simply come on their own accord and work for tips? If that is true, which it is most likely NOT, what kind of regulatory system is in place for the porters? Also, what is stopping us, the passengers from placing our bags in the correct carriers ourselves? Just curious and aggrivated by the antics of the last porter we had to deal with on Carnival in Miami. We did not have to endure any of the heckling from anyone on the Radisson cruise we took to Alaska and found it quite nice.
