Default Ocean view????

Just had to share this from our recent cruise on the Mercury..........

We were down at guest Relations & heard a lady complaing very loudly to the person..........I booked a ocean view room & all I got was a dock view. I hope I don't have this dock view all the way to Vancouver! If I do I want my money back!

I don't think we took the dock with us...........

And just think, people like that are allowed to vote and reproduce.

Reminds me of the two ladies standing ouside the elevator during embarkation of one of our cruises:

"See Marge, when you want to go up, you push the top button. When you want to go down, you push the bottom button."

Another lady near us overhears the conversation and says:

"Gee, you must have been valedictorian."

My favorite was the cruiser that asked the naturalist in Glacier Bay, "Why doesn't the cruise line wash the glaciers to make them nice & clean for the tourists before they arrive?"

We're getting perilously close to "does the crew sleep on board?"

Yes, but AR, do these people PLAN on reproducing or do they just toss and turn in their sleep and get lucky?

I mean,

"An infinite number of cruisers complaining on an infinite number of cruise ships...."

I've heard this one on many CD's list of funniest questions. But these have to come from somewhere. No doubt people find the list funny because they've heard or perhaps thought of these questions themselves at some time.

Lombard> Even better, stick a picture of the side of a LIFEBOAT on the porthole.....

Purser's Desk:
"Madam.... your cabin is not listed as Obstructed View"

How do you intend to do this, by the way?
Maybe that's how some of those folks ended up swimming with the sharks... ("I was taping a picture to.... oh, nevermind.")
