Sick of all the griping here. Barf bags..toilet paper..no fish etc. Knock it off. Those of us able to cruise is a very small percentage of the population. Be thankful you can enjoy such a wonderful experience. Just leave your kids at home when you cruise and enjoy yourself.
Totally agree with you about the gripes, but sometimes there are some "real" problems, that need calling attention to. I sure don't let the little stuff bother me when cruising, its just not worth it, nothing short of not having my luggage will get in the way of having fun while on a cruise!
Donna, I am in a "dry spell" for gripes . Adopting Deb's view on life....Life is not a dress rehearsal <G>. Even with what some percieve as problems......Cruising is the best vacation we know of. Also, the people here at Cruisemates are some of the best people in the world. Deb and I are very happy we found these boards. Thanks.
Rick, I have a gripe. What is it with people who like to jump off of decks at sea? Am I missing some new craze or hip idea? I mean there must be somthing really wild about smashing one's head into a deck or sea water. I know I 'm getting old but this new things makes no sense! Anyway 36 days until Explorer of the Seas.
I'm with Rick in most ways ... had to beat my head to think of something to gripe and realized it was the TP. Easy problem to solve though. Now gotta get Pamda's tips on how to best pack the toilet paper -- throwing it in a ziplock bag and sitting on it doesn't seem like it will work too well. :-)
this is my first cruise and i have had to save up for a while. but always wanted to take a cruise and now that my son will be 18 on this cruise what a great way to celebrate his graduation and a mother, son vacation. so i doubt if i will gripe any. cathy
