Enjoying Each Cruise
 
I have only been on 3 cruises so far and must say that I have enjoyed them immensely! Of course each ship is different from one another, however, I found all of their staff to do a great job and were very courteous. It seemed every where you looked they were "always cleaning". The ship's were spotless to say the least. I would have to say nothing in life will ever be "Perfect" and those who want things to be that way are Never going to be satisfied no matter what! So you will always have those who will bad mouth the cruises they want on regardless.

Shan,
I think in many ways u've hit the nail on the head. Cruises, in general, are so terrific, and we get SO spoiled. We're treated like royalty!
And then we start acting like it .. LOL
Things go wrong, like they do in everyday life (where we handle them without blinking) and for some reason, once we're on a ship.. it's a catasrophe.
Plain and simple.. the more u travel... ship happens and I wrote an article about it :)

Sometimes people are totally rigid in their thinking about things. A friend of mine married a man like that. He sailed on a troop ship from Seattle to Korea for the Korean war. He hated Seattle and has no clue how it's developed since and doesn't even want to hear about it since he will never go back. As far as ships are concerned, his troop ship was not built for any sort of comfort and without stabilizers could move so much faster. He got very seasick. His wife was my frequent cruise companion before they got married. Since he doesn't want to know that cruise ships are quite different than troop carriers He will not entertain the idea of a cruise. Needless to say, we don't like each other a whole lot.

Carol,

That was a funny story......there are those who are indeed very rigid in their thinking.....I tried to get my mom to go on a cruise but she won't have any of it.....won't even give it a chance...But I do recall myself yrs ago saying to my husband when he asked me to go on a cruise "What would I do on a cruise ship? How dumb was I? I'm now addicted to them and just get so excited to go on a cruise......I hate to hear these people complain about the smallest things....to me it sounds as if they are extremely spoiled!
