Default Enforce your policies...

Don't make a policy then not enforce it. The ones that I have seen most frequently are designated smoking areas and using "boomboxes" in public spaces.

Even as a smoker, I understand the need and desire for smoke free spaces, even on the outside decks. Please, when someone is smoking in a non-smoking area - make them leave or put it out. It is just as much a right to non-smokers to have a smoke free area as it is for me to make my own decision to smoke.

When someone is walking around with a "boombox" or on the Lido deck by the pool with a loud radio - let them know that the policy is to use earphones. Not everyone may want to hear your music.

And the one that I think gets most people riled: Chair saving. If it has been an hour and all that is on the chair is an unused towel and a book, then remove it for those who plan on staying for a while. Those who left it can pick it up at the purser's desk

Exactly - if you have rules, especially printed or posted rules, give the crew in attendance the ability to enforce those rules without the fear of reproach.
Another pet-peeve of cruisers that i have noticed on this board is the non-enforcement of the printed dress code policy.

Default rules enforcement

ALl we hear is how tolerant we have to be of "other" people's rights to be offensive.

The cruise lines will not begin enforcement until those that choose to live by the rules begin voting with their $$$ and move to another cruise line.

We "voted" and no longer spend any money on NCL. Our $$$ now goes to Celebrity.

I think most lines also need to enforce their dress code policy. Why have one if they don't enforce it, at least in the dining rooms in the evening.

Same goes for the chair hogs, both by the pools and the theaters
