Default Now you see it, now you wish you didnt...

Now its reversed. What do you see on Carnival every time you sail that you can do without?

Mine is the goofy pool games and the ear splitting pool band..I like the music but you dont the decibel level to equal a jet!

I wish I did not see the muster drill. Just like an airplane, no one cares, no one listens! Also, especially the cruises from Los Angeles, the ship is never more than 30 miles from the coast, so, I hardly think we are in much trouble of getting put to sea in a life boat for more than an hour!

I certainly listen and I certainly care. Even after 10 cruises. I want to know what to do if the unthinkable should happen. There are many first time cruisers that want and need to know also. 30 miles or 300 miles from the coast it does not matter. Getting back to that coast safely does.

What I don't want to see is a smoker that sits in the non smoking area and brings an ashtray and lights up.

I have to agree with original poster. The ridiculously loud music. Makes my head hurt. And, the singers in shows who confuse volume with quality.

The 70+ year old woman in a bikini that scared the living daylights out of us all. She was not fit, she looked older than her age and she had more wrinkles that an elephant or prune. She wasn't on the beach -- that would have been hard enough to swallow -- she was parading around on the Lido deck without a coverup and it was lunchtime when everyone was eating.

Second is children that run around unsupervised like heathens, bumping into people, throwing tantrums and cursing at their parents or the ship personnel and their parents that do nothing about it.
