Default On The Wrong Ship


When embarking, the crew member who is to take you to your cabin does not know where it is.

During the lifeboat drill, the instructor is shown by a passenger how to put on the live vest.

The majority of your fellow passengers are senior citizens traveling with their parents

You are seated at a table for eight and six of the passengers speak no English; or you are 40 yars of age and the passengers are your table are 70 to 80 plus..

Your stateroom is directly under the galley. Sleepless nights.

The water comes out of the faucets so dirty so the cruise line sells you bottled water to drink.

One day a live cockroach crawls out of your Caesar salad.

The walls of your cabin are so poorly insulated that you can hear everything going on next door.

It takes three days to fix a shower that is flooding the bathroom; the toilet does not flush for two days; the air conditioning is not working.

Your head waiter recommends not each any fish since it is too old.

The cabin has a double bed that is pushed up against a wall so one of you has to crawl over the other.

The dress for the evening is formal and a number of passengers come to dinner wearing a tee shirt.

Nobody pays attention to the "No Smoking Areas", nor is "No Smoking enforced.

The bottle of Champagne promised by your travel agent never arrives.

On disembarking, you are asked to leave your cabin by 8:00AM and you find all the public rest rooms are closed for cleaning.

Your waiter and room steward c an barely understand or speak English.

At some point I time the ship stars to run out of certain items of food, such bananas or prunes.

The gym is continually occupied by crew members and entertainers.

You were supposed to board starting at 2:00P.M.but there is a two hour delay because the photographers are off the ship.

Your luggage does not arrive in the stateroom until the middle of the night or next day.

The T.V. in the can shows only very old movies or a lot of advertisements.

During the life boat drill you notice how poorly the boats have been maintained.

When the cruise director tells you the tours in the next port are worthless.

When your room steward or waiter inform you that your tip is inadequate.
