I tend to agree with you. Some seem to search for faults rather than enjoying themselves. On cruises some start complaining at the end of the cruise in the hope of obtaining discounts on future trips.

Every time someone raises a negative point to the cruise lines I am sure someone will be checking "do they mean us" Those of us who are happy with poor service probably deserve it,those who dont put up with second class service will hopefully raise the standards for everyone.Richard wilson lives on!

Well said, we have disembarked behind people before and listened to their constant complaints! Thing is, we've had the most stunning time, no complaints, fantastic service etc...... Maybe it makes a difference if you are actually a person with a sunny smile, sociable, happy nature and remain polite at all times. I reckon some folks just like to be miserable and complain. By the way, next time you're cruising, take time to say hello to the cleaners in the public areas, you know the ones who spend their lives keep the bannisters sparkling and the tiolets immaculate and well supplied. THESE PEOPLE are the unsung heroes of the ship, we all take care of our cabin Steward/ess (or at least we SHOULD do) but these guys don't, just imagine ship life without them. HAPPY CRUISING, REMEBER YOU ARE A VERY LUCKY PERSON.

I agree we were standing behind someone who said they would not go on thomsons cruises again as they we letting to many working class people aboard (What a cheek) And then there was the lady who complained about her port hole wouldnt open. How daft is she and the guy who asked why the ship didnt have a snooker table. It make you think.

I know while I was on Holiday in Goa my ...

The latest technology available in the near v=future on Royal Caribbean is facial recognition. the latest technology is already functioning on Allure of the seas and oasis of the seas and will be found on 13% of the fleet.So what does this mean?It means passengers can now check in really quickly thanks to their pre loaded photo, open their cabin doors without a keycard and a luggage tracker will monitor their bags and send them an alert once the luggage has arrived to the cabin. Is this a ste...

Celebrity earlier this week came out with some very exciting news that the Celebrity Edge will launch earlier than planned, although I understand the disappointment from those that have already booked thinking they had booked the maiden voyages although this seems to becoming more of a thing as both the Harmony and Symphony have done new sailings after announce a sailings, including the Maiden Voyage.The Celebrity Edge was due to come out in December this year, however she will now have five ...
