Default cruising gripes

the other day i was on the cruising gripes forum, something that i have never really been on before, and i was totally amazed at how much the 'cruising adults' had to complain about. the ships are too big, and really stupid things like that. in my opinion i just take everything as it comes and i try and enjoy my holiday.

what do you guys think??

On a cruise, i usually cant find a thing to complain about!!! But I do find myself comparing the cruise im on to past ones (like the food). And my only complaints would have to be like odd smells in the ship and cold water. everything else is so good though...so im able to over look the little things and still enjoy my vacation a lot!!!

I agree! I hate when people go on complaining about their cruise. I especially hate when people blame the cruise line on something that the cruise line had no control over. Some people just like to complain.

yea i think its the outlook people have. i read cruise reviews a lot and i hate reading bad reviews. so then i was just like they probably just went for like a freak bad week. but then one time i read a review from 2 different people on the same week (they didnt know each other) one person said it was amazing! and the other said they hated everything. and i was ohh someones negative.

i have never had a baddd cruise. theres been cruises where i dont like the people.. or something. but never a bad cruise. the only thing i can think of is that i just didnt like NCL freestyle cruising cuz i like having the same waitor every night and not having to wait in a line before dinner.

adults in the reviews always pinpoint the stupidest problem like "there pillow wasnt soft enough" if you care THAT much about something as stupid as that on a cruise, bring your own pillow!

Exactly! And you wonder if any of them feel rediculous by posting something like that! The little things that aren't exactly how you want them don't make up a vacation.

lmao i know. i am having an argument with the people on the tattoo thread because they are all complaining that they don't like seeing tats on people, and that they don't want people showing their tats on the cruise. like it's their own choice

I don't mind if other people have tattoos(they can be really cute), but I don't think I would ever get one, cause I am a wimp!

I don't mind pushy people, sometimes people just won't get out of the way (lol thinking about highschool hallways right now) but I hate people who will butt in front of people in line. People need to learn to wait their turn.

NO WAY!!!!!!

K so one night there were these 2 comedians for the show. OMG they were the funniest people i had ever seen!!! and they even made fun of all the old people...and like 95% of the people onboard were old!! like over 60!! like imitating how slow they usually are...but then how fast then can be when racing to the elevator or buffet line!! ahhh omg you had to be there.

Exactly what I was thinking! Now that I am in grade 12, I can't stand the slow grade 9s that bunch around in the middle of the hallway. I am not affraid to push them, or use my backpack to "hit them by accident) It just drives me crazy when I am already running late, and there in my way

lol okay that was my little rant.

And it is funny making fun of old people, but I love old people. My grandma is like my hero, she is so awesome and funny.

OMG! My grandma will do that too, it makes it that much funnier! Though I am happy my grandma at least realizes here age, but she likes to try to stay healthy. Though I guess we're lucky, cause I always here people complaining about their grandparents.

Lol that it is funny about your sister, make sure to teach her how to not be an anoying grade 9. I know I used to be one back in the day (lol), but I wish I knew better back then. It is crazy how much one year will do, cause in grade 10, people change so much.

Okay, do you guys have this "rule" at your school. You walk in the halls and go through doors like you would drive, at the right side. If you use the wrong door, or are in the wrong side, people will yell at you. It works perfectly, but when the grade 9s mess it up, it is so annoying!

its not really a rule, but it common courtesy to walk down the right side of the hallway, not just at schools but in malls, etc.
the gr 9s at my school also like to stand in "herds" in the middle of the hallways and they won't move :P
