Default Would You Cruise With These People

Rude, old, smelly, tatoooed, smoking, booze smuggling, blue jean wearing,
people from New York who take nasty young children and their screaming infant siblings on cruises, breast feed them in the dining room on formal nights and them give no tips to their steward or wait staff.

Have I left anyone out?

Yup you forgot those of us in wheelchairs that have the nerve to take elevators and hold up lines.

You forgot us slightly overwieght people...you know those of us who aren't a size two...


But if I choose not to cruise with any of those people, I would never be able to cruise. I don't let others bother me on a cruise, I just ignore them. Why waste my vacation time worrying about other people???

I smoke, but only in desinated areas; I am not a size two, but I wear clothes that fit; I take a bottle of Parrot Bay on board, because they don't serve it at the bars; and I have a tattoo, but you will only see it if I wear a low cut bathing suit....so if you don't want to cruise with me, then I suggest not booking the two cruises listed below.

what about just plain unattractive people like me. Shouldn't nice things in life be more for good looking people, like in a beer commercial?

I'm a grouch...but I know MANY people who like to sail with me

I have made many friends on my cruises, and they still call me a grouch.

I guess i'm just a 'fun' grouch.

As hard as we try, none of us can be all of the things I listed, and that is a real shame.

I am not attractive by any stretch of the imagination. Soooooooo if you don't like my looks look elsewhere. I am what I am and I like the person I am.
Hazelson, I think that is a grand idea!!

Your are right, how about if you knew Teddy Kennedy was onboard!
Imagine the fun when the right wingers ask Teddy to say the name of the new Supreme Court Justice!

Are the 24 hour bars onboard?

Default Would you cruise with these people?

Paul B obviously hit a few nerves here, but I agree with Uconn. It takes all types to make this big old world go around and I only know of one being who is perfect. We love to sit and people watch whether we are on a cruise ship, the mall or at Mardi Gras. One thing I have learned while cruising is that just when you think you have seen it all, you find something or someone new to top off the list. I also found that anyone, no matter how big (like me) or how small will wear a swim suit on a cruise ship, even when they would never wear one at home. I don't let other people spoil my fun on a cruise. If I don't like the scenery, I just find another deck to relax on or go sit on my balcony for a while.

If Paul B has a problem with this, maybe he should book his next cruise in a lifeboat, or just buy his own private boat and let the rest of us continue to sail, happily along in our imperfect ways.

Whoa.........everybody! Paul B was being sarcastic. If you bother to search back through the threads you'll see other threads which posters have complained about the individual people in Paul's post.

He was just kidding!

I really hate to cruise with anyone who is sarcastic. That just really puts a burr under my saddle, (near where my tattoo is).

Well you can be as ugly and overweight as you want to be-I could care less. (not so gorgeous myself anymore) And I will even put up with you wearing blue jeans. Who cares if you are from new York. But If you stink and need to bathe I would rather not be near you.

Not a fan of screaming babies either. Twenty one years ago that was my daughter. We left many a resuarant with doggie bags and missed the end of a few movies too because of her.

I guess though that is the point-if she was being a brat and we could not control her-we did not subject others to her brattiness.

I can't wait until she has a couple-I hope they are the worst! Then I can tell her it is pay back time!

Hey... the duty free guy told me to put it in my backpack to carry on. In my defense, I still ended up with a $500 drink bill so I didn't cheat anyone.

This last cruise they thought I had smuggled a bottle on-it turned out the guy was looking at my hair spray bottle of all things.

I've only been on 2 cruises so far, but I really couldn't tell you about any specific cruise-rule breakers. I only remember the cruises from the 100's of digital pictures we took, our re-telling of the memories, and, well, the 8 x 10 money-suckers they call photos.

I guess that stuff you mention must have occured due to the sheer number of people onboard, but either I didn't look for it, or if I found it, it just didn't matter
