Default Breaking Gripes!!

CNN's breaking news ain't got nothin on us!

Here is a new thread, that we can post gripes on as they are happening!!

Email the link to this site to your own email, then visit this site when you are ON your cruise, and post any gripe live as it is happening. I will start when I'm cruising this Friday!

Live, up to the minute, play by play griping!!!

Cheers

banker

If we don't hear anything, can we assume that you are trying to complain about the terrible internet service at sea?

I plan to keep in contact with this board the weeks I am on the Conquest
and Radiance. I hope I will be on the cruise line threads instead of the gripe board.

I'm guessing here, but based on previous posts when I challenged Brian (Bicker) about his cruising experience,,,,,,, I think I'm right in saying that this is his first cruise

Brian, for all your moaning and comments on this board. I hope you are both being so blown away with the experience of what your now tasting as the "real" cruise experience, that you do not find the time to come online and Gripe. Enjoy the experience and remember it,,,,,,,,,, we can debate (I'm sure) reality later

Thats my guess and hope its true. You see buddy sometimes you have to read the book as well as the cover for the full story !!!!!!

DavidB, I was worried about losing my job as an offshore reporter, but actually have a gripe, and yes, was so busy enjoying myself, only jumped on to email wife n boss n friends n stuff, but I've got one.....

before I say what it was, the fact that I was actually looking for something to gripe about is a testament to how fantastic cruising actually is - but didn't want to let you guys down

when in line at the breakfast buffet, I grabbed a tray and it had just been washed, and it was actually a little too warm to put fruit on it (didn't want to wait for the person in front of the fruit bowls making an executive decision between mexican and regular scrambled eggs).

That was it. Oh and had someone ask me what time the midnight buffet started!

LATE BREAKING GRIPE...............................

Just found out today they cut our Kona stop from 2 days to 1,
and added a full day in Kauai.
Can I get some cabin credit for this serious change in plans ???
Maybe half off my next cruise ???

You little tinker, we send you off on this cruise and this is the best you can come up with !!! Will be examining your expenses claim very carefully.

What are you giving me..

"when in line at the breakfast buffet, I grabbed a tray and it had just been washed, and it was actually a little too warm to put fruit on it "

You'r reviewing for a MENS magazine, NOT ' How Pastel is your Bedroom'

<G>

Honestly buddy, I am so pleased you are having a great time, thats made my night

Was I right in saying this was your first cruise?

Davy

Davy, dude.......have another pint,

I think you're confusing me (banker) with Brian (bicker).

Reviewing for a Men's magazine....what makes you think only men read this board .....you sexist homophobic pig!!!

Thanks for being pleased I had a good time,

It was my 18th cruise, 6 of us hoodlums tore up the ship a little (all of them first timers and they are hooked - the ones that can afford it anyways)

banker

PS- Start a thread about homosexual homophobes on cruises!!

Too many B's on this board that I argue with (sorry I discuss with)...,BIG ooops

Banker it still stands (pardon the pun), pleased you all had a great time buddy.

The potential HH thread is not my style mate and not one I could lead on,, sorry.

But if you want to start it and depending on opinion, I would be in there for you (again pardon the pun) <G>

If you and your 5 homosexual friends had a problem on ship, with the "Friends of Dorothy" meetings whatever, you all post the complaint and in my NIL knowledge of the position, I'll back you up (done it again) !!

Nice Davy, you actually made me laugh with that one!!

which was a pleasant surprise from your usual interrogative converse!!

If I had known you'd "be there" so much for me I would have invited you (and paid for you - you are from a third world country after all!)

You could have just "hung" around, "behind" the scenes, "watching my back", "bringing up the rear",

hey, if you outranked the captain you'd be a "rear" admiral!

you say you tipped the "head" bartender at the pool bar, I see, you took the "back door" approach

cheers bud

banker

Wow you two - I feel like I'm eavesdropping on a "menage a deu". Can I play - please can I. At least let me hold the soap lol. I too was a little disappointed in the lack of gripes from Banker - what - no stains on the carpets, no lipstick on the coffee cups - come on now - give us SOMETHING - how can we go forward from here - virtually naked - and gripeless. Sigh! What's the point of living now! I got it - just went over to the TA today and put a hole on the Carnival Pride for March 6th - yeah! Let the gripes begin! Love you Dudes - in a heterosexual on-line way of course. TTFN Jennifer
