Default Ya better watch out.....

The Captain & crew of this ship, get a yayayayayay!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the recent repositioning from San Francisco to Sydney aboard Dawn Princess, it seemed the captain and his crew showed who was the boss on board ship a few times. Two women were removed from the ship after being caught shoplifting in the ship's boutique. Two men were removed from the ship after assaulting crew who had removed their belongings from a hogged lounger. And to round it all off another couple of men having a heated argument/fight in the laundryroom were also removed from the ship.

I want to sail with this captain and crew. Sometimes the customer isn't always right and need to be booted off the ship.

Take care,
Mike

Geez sounds like a hockey game, not a cruise ship. Good for Princess for sending the message that unacceptable, abusive behavior will not be tolerated.

Good for the cruise line, but I had to laugh at the picture in my mind of the two guys fighting in the laundry room.

They are so small, that you have to go out in the hall to turn around. Bet, neither one of them hit the floor, because of lack of space.

i, for one, commend the officers and crew and the cruise line for beginning to enforce common-sense rules designed to make the cruise a pleasure for everyone. one doesn't enter anarchy when crossing the gangway --- hopefully.

Makes me proud of the crew.

Glad to know that there are consequences for poor behavior.

I agree completely -- Kudos to the Master and his crew!

But three separate incidents, each involving two passengers, on the same cruise??? This NEVER would have happened with the cadre of passengers that Princess was drawing when I started cruising a decade ago! I really wonder to what extent the "personal choice cruising" campaign might be what's drawing the arrogant self-centered passengers who are disposed toward such bad behavior to that line.

But frankly, if Princess is drawing such people away from another line on which I'm now cruising and the lines in the parent company of which I happen to own stock... well, I hope that Princess continues, because this is doing me a great service!

Norm.
