Default New Poll - If You.............

built your own cruise ship.....................what is something important thing that it should include, and what would you never put on it?

Mine must be an all balcony ship.

Remove casinos and anything that makes you "pay extra" for the privelege (or provide it free) - i.e. alternative restaurants, sodas, ice cream.

Enforce strictly the "no saving chairs" policy and if there are adult areas, it must also be enforced.

More hot tubs, and definitely adult only, and a bit warmer then the ones I have experienced! All pools should be fresh water. When the beds are pushed together, please make them up with a king mattress pad and bedding as one bed, not two pushed together! More smoke free ships!

Include:
Wrap-around promenade decks!!! (I like teak!)

Padded deck chairs with drink holders, and lots of 'em!

Educational and cultural seminars, instead of "shop here cuz we get a cut" port talks.

An elaborate breakfast brunch buffet, complete with mimosas and fancy coffees, once per cruise.

Don't care if they take away but they dont' bother me either:
Bingo and art auctions.

Keep the casino!

I agree w/previous posts, MORE smoke free ships.

More things to do onboard if you decide not to leave the ship while in port, perhaps as Mermaid mentioned, some educational talks, perhaps more about the ship and/or the area we are visiting...

More fair chances to get a good seat in the showroom if you are not a Bingo fanatic.

And yes, fresh water pools would be mahhhhhhhvelous!

You GO, Mermaid !!!

A brunch buffet instead of one midnight buffet. Fabulous idea.

All passengers would be provided with homing devices to assist in cabin location.

Decent hairdryers and a CD player in every cabin.

And I'd co-opt the RCI idea of changing the rugging in the elevators each day so you have some clue which day it is (especially for long cruises).

A "quiet" pool deck where there are no games, no music, no kids (sorry, young parents) and just a laid-back bartender.

All cruise ships to have a launderette that cruise for over 10 days.

Each cabin have a TV with Audio/Video RCA plug in the front so you can view your Digital Images or Video.

Cruise Itin that visit exotic ports, The ones that are not regularly visited. i.e. Ports in Indonesia (beautiful country).

Elimanate Balcony rails that obstruct your view.

These are only a few of many.

Hi:

Full live bands. Not deuts playing around sequenced and digitally created music. And.....while we are at it. Have different theme bands. i.e. country, pop, disco? mmm.......ok....maybe not all disco all the time. How about a nice jazz quartet in a off the beaten path lounge???

All these suggestions are absolutely great and get my vote. I'm with you Boomer about more real live music! On the Costa Atlantica, I listened to the same trio every night, a violinist, piano and base and they were great. They did requests played just about anything. They had their music and just played no added assistance, a real treat.

Of course, because I stopped by to listen every night, toward the end of the cruise they played Oh, Susanah and If You Knew Susie so I was happy! Sue

OK - if it were MY ship, I would want (at a minimum):

1. All balcony staterooms with tubs in the suite and multiple shower heads.

2. An all-teak around the ship promenade deck. With teak loungers along the promenade for those times you want to watch the world go by.

3. A brunch buffet at least TWICE on a cruise. All alternative restraunts will be free of charge. Buffet open 24 hours; pizza available 24 hours. A chocolate buffet once every cruise.

4. There would be a casino; but it would also have $2 black jack table for us amateurs, and the slots would not be so tight.

5. All hot tubs and pools would be open 24/7. The ship would have a thalassotherapy pool. Spa services would be complimentary! (Remember, this is MY ship!)

6. All beverages of any kind would be included in the cruise fare.

7. Computers with free internet access in all cabins (with a fast connection!)

8. Only two photographers on the whole ship - port debarkation and portraits only - no interrupting your dinner to get that pic of your table.

Oh ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto, ditto... You are all reading my mind.

I have to add a supervised outdoor play area for the kids with a splash pool. Nothing like whisking your kids away from the cold of the midwest only to drop them into a dark, indoor play room. Ahhhh... the family vacation at it's best.

LOVE the brunch idea... is anyone listening!!!!!!!!!
