Default Saving pool chairs, is it OK?

CELEBRITY GUEST CONDUCT POLICY

[b]Discourteous or Disruptive Behavior.

Pool, deck and theater chairs may not be reserved. Topless sunbathing is permitted on selected vessels in designated areas (contact the Guest Relations Desk for details). Boom boxes or loud radios are not permitted. Roller blades, roller skates, skateboards, scooters, surfboards, bicycles, and similar items may not be utilized on-board (except for mobility aids related to special needs, as approved by the ship’s medical staff).

Alcohol

Celebrity Cruises guests are expected to be responsible for their actions at all times, including during transfers to and from ships, inside terminals, while onboard, at our ports of call, during shore excursions and at our private destinations. Consuming alcohol to excess impairs one's judgment and reduces one’s ability to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations. Guests who choose to consume alcohol must do so responsibly.

On Celebrity Cruises, with the exception of embarkation day, when Guests are permitted to bring on board with them two (2) bottles of wine (which are subject to a corkage fee), per stateroom, guests are not permitted to bring alcoholic beverages on board for consumption or any other purpose. Alcoholic beverages that are purchased from onboard shops or in ports of call (which must be presented to security upon re-boarding), will be secured by ship's personnel and delivered to the guest’s stateroom just prior to the conclusion of the cruise. Security may inspect containers (water bottles, soda bottles, mouthwash, luggage, etc.) at any time, and those concealing or attempting to conceal alcohol will be subject to action pursuant to the "Consequences Section" of this Guest Conduct Policy. Guests under the age of twenty-one (21) who possess alcohol in violation of this policy will not have alcohol returned to them and appropriate consequences will be considered, including but not limited to loss of privileges to use the disco or other areas or facilities of the ship.

Prohibited Items

Items with Heating Elements or Open Flames
Certain items that generate heat or produce an open flame are not permitted on ship. This includes clothing irons, hotplates, candles, incense and any other item that may create a fire hazard. (Curling irons and hair dryers are allowed.)

Consequences Section below.

Danny:

The rules are great unless they are enforced and in this case the pool attendents really are in a bind. This is one of the bigger problems on a ship. I actually saw a woman reserve with towels, books and shoes, 12 chairs in a prime location near the pool. At no time during the day were any more than two of those chairs occupied. That is an extreme example but it happens on a smaller scale all the time.

[color=green]Hi Don,

The Celebrity CONDUCT POLICY has been backed up with the CONSEQUENCE POLICY to identify violations for enforcement of the aformentioned policies, these are the written directive and proceedures for SECURITY to adhere.

No more Blind areas!

I suggest that if any passenger encounters a violation to quickly report the violation directly to security, do not engage with the passenger (s).
Security should obtain the full names and cabin number for a report and if other problems are encountered, Security can then enforce the consequence section that apply against the violator (s).

PS, the pool has alwas been a volitile area, certin passengers tend to get totally wasted and become very aggrasive, this is why the lagnuage in the conduct policy includes RESPONCIBLE DRINKING and Discourteous or Disruptive Behavior.

I personally would have preferred more spacific language to include:
1) Guest are to remove there towels from pool lounges and deposit them in the collection bens upon departing the pool deck area.
2) Guest that wish to dine in the buffet are not permitted to leave any personal items on any pool lounges.
3) Security and or Staff members will remove all personal items and towels from pool lounges after (35 minutes) on any and all lounges not being occupied by a guest. [color=blue]

Below is the actual policy from Celebrity.

START
Consequences
Failure to act in accordance with this policy may result in:Intervention by Security, other management personnel, or law enforcement
• Removal of certain onboard privileges, which may include being detained, quarantined or confined in a cabin or holding cell
• Confiscation of illegal/contraband/prohibited items (may be turned over to law enforcement authorities)
• Denial of boarding on the current or any future Celebrity Cruises cruise
• Reporting of incidents to government and law enforcement authorities for follow-on legal action
• Removal from a ship at the next port of call. Guests removed from a Celebrity Cruises ship pursuant to this policy, are responsible for their own accommodations and transportation home, at their expense. Documentation requirements for re-entry into the guest’s home country are also the responsibility of the guest.

Establishing and articulating a Guest Conduct Policy helps ensure that all guests are able to enjoy a fantastic, safe and secure cruise experience. Celebrity Cruises appreciates your support of this policy and hopes this will be the best vacation you have ever had.
END.

We were on Summit in Sept 2006, repositioning cruise Alaska to Los Angeles. We sailed from San Francisco at 6 PM. While at dinner, about 8:45, I saw a small boat along side with red lights on mast. Shortly thereafter, there was an announcement that the Summit was returning to San Francisco due to an "medical emergency". We docked about 11:45 PM. I watched over the railing. The only thing that happened was that someone was escorted off the gangway with personnel on either side. There was a police car there, and the person was put in the car. Also, a man got in the car. The ship then sailed, on to Catalina Island the next day.

I later learned that the person was a woman passenger who was drunk most of the time, and at dinner that night threw a glass at another passenger.

So Celebrity does sometime enforce their Guest Conduct rules.

Can you imagine the credit card bill she received to pay for the costs of turning around, fuel costs, and port costs, all due to her behavior!
