The people from PR can be quite a nice bunch if you give them the same respect you would give anyone else.

Therein lies the attitude of the PR locals. The preceived notion that they are not getting the same treatment that other people get so therefore, they are "pre-justified" in being rude "because they just know everyone is going to be rude to them so they will be rude first."

Thanks. You just illustrated my point perfectly.

I have written two reviews this week on two different ships. Polar opposition experience.
