Wow! You touched on my only real pet peeve last time I cruised...The pirate coming up to the table for a photo! If they would find a different way to offer it that would be one thing, but to come hustling up to your table, leaning down into your personal space and interrupting your dining is lousy. It makes a very nice dining room experience feel like your in a kid's themed fast food place. Last time, I gave the pirate "the look" as he started to approach me and he backed off! lol.

Great list, Kuki. I must agree about the invasive photos. They are a royal pain in the rear and just plain annoy the heck out of me. Sitting for a nice family portrait is fine as it is at my convenience.
