That's a good one. Can't say I ever had anyone ask me how much I paid, of course I take the cheap stateroom anyway, but I have had folks complaining that they didn't get upgraded!

I have never had anyone ask my price either.

We've never had anyone ask the price we paid for our cruise...BUT, we have had passengers brag that they were upgraded to suites, or one time the Penthouse.

Only once I've run into someone who was bragging how little she paid for her cabin. Some last minute deal. Whatever.

How rude of anyone to ask what someone paid for a cabin!

I love braggers! I've perfected a wonderful blank stare that just reeks of, "So???"

Good one! Sometime a look says more than a 'host' of words. (because most likely their not listening anyway!)

I've not had anyone ask about what we paid for our cruise. But on a RCCL cruise out of Long Beach in 1996, our tablemates in the Dining Room talked (maybe bragging???) about their bar bills, which were almost twice what we paid for our cruise.

I'd have gone and helped them quadrupple it - if it gave them so much pleasure......

I'm sure they could find a lot of volunteers for that one!
