had the same thing on the destiny, afternoon nap time, or 8:00 am slamming doors, and screaming in the hall ways. after a few days i went to their level and slammed the door when i got up to pee in the middle of the night.....im evil.....
I aired this same gripe a year or two ago and got royally flamed for it. I'm glad to see that there are other people who believe in closing the cabin doors instead of opening them wide open and turning them loose to KABOOM on their own. It's only a matter of a little respect for your neighbors. Nothing like being asleep around 1-2 a.m. and your neighbor coming in and slamming the cabin door, then slamming the balcony door a few times. Maybe they should have sections for slammers and non-slammers ??
I can go one better....on the last morning of our cruise, a door outside was SLAMMING so hard EVERY FEW MINUTES that the walls would literally shake! Once when it happened, I quickly dashed outside to discover the source....while customs was going thru the ship, they were required to close a fire proof door. Well, the staff apparently had business which required them to keep going thru this doorway, opening this huge, heavy door and then just letting it SLAM! It was so ridiculous, but at least I knew it wasn't different inconsiderate slobs, "only" the staff! haha

Carol, apparently you have been well blessed by the cruise gods to have never been next door to a " slammer ". I don't have to worry about someone next door snoring--- my wife does a fine job of that and when I complain, she denies she snores !!
Whatever you do Ron, DO NOT tape her to prove she snores! VERY bad idea. <> My wife will wake herself up and smack me claiming MY snoring just woke her up! While I do snore very loudly without my CPAP I do not ever think I have snored while awake. <G>
I agree about the door slaming, BUT, to top that we experienced another type of annoyance on a cruise. The fellow next door had a keyboard. Yes, one of those that make some good and bad music. He would always play the sucker while we were trying to get some shut eye. When it got so loud and bad I would bang on the wall and then the sound would become a little bit softer. Every night he would play this organ so finally I contacted the Powers to Be and they moved him somewhere. I told them I would not move because I had squatters rights. So be it.

It is very apparent to me, for sure, NONE of you have ever, never, stayed in a room, either on a ship or motel, next to me. But then again you would have never known it, because I HATE those who slam doors. I have, and always will, close a door very gently in respect to the ones around us. IF everyone did this, then this thread would be uncalled for.....Right?
