    Annoying Passenger Traits

    To be honest, if you find power walkers "annoying" then I think that is rather sad. Likewise, if you consider certain individuals behaviour in lifts "moronic" then I think that is sad too. There is a solution.......use the stairwells instead.

    Having just returned from a rather excellent cruise, I now realise how "precious" certain individuals are and how the slightest of traits, behaviour or attitude can send them into a flat tailspin. Your list reinforces that notion.

    Frankly, I was having too much of a good time to really let other's behaviour interfere with my enjoyment. Our expectations were totally exceeded, we also expected to experience the full UK social strata (which we did) and made the necessary allowances.

    We met some amazing people (Freedom dining) and had a truly wonderful time. Will we be going back? Most certainly. Life isn't always perfect, and therefore neither is cruising. Life really is too short to be "concerned" by trivialities!

      Bad cruising or too fussy?

      Considering you have only been on two cruises and both of them with Thomson I would suggest that you change your cruiseline and that you chill out a little.

      I am a "ten bob millionaire" and am rarely bothered as much as you seem to be. .....Neil

        The list was meant to be a bit tongue in cheek really, but evidently not taken that way . I had a great time on both ships and am certainly not going to let anyone put me off booking again.

        Also PM just for info, my aversion to stairs is due to arthirits, which is why I'm pretty lift dependent.

          I tend to find most of these things amusing rather than annoying.

          Like the lady at the next table at the bar on Mykonos who didn't want a fruit drink - oh I know, I'll have lemon!

            I am sorry for not noticing the humorous element It looked serious and we have too many moaners. I love my cruising and prefer happy threads.

            I will look out for your humour in future. ....Neil

              Felt for you there,.. I thought your list was meant to be humourus. A topic like yours often starts up quite an interesting thread, come on you lot if we can't have a bit of harmless fun on here without offending each other it's a shame.

                  Or when we were on Jewel of the Seas a few years ago when the teenagers took over the elevators and rode them all day pressing all the buttons and stopping at every deck, made getting anywhere rather slow.

                  Quite hard to use the stairs as you suggest when you have painful arthritis in the hips and knees.

                  I do hope others are more sympathetic to you than you are to us.
                  I always thought I was indestructible. Mind you I always gave way to those in wheelchairs and used the stairs if I could. Now I could not. Power walking? I wish! Makes me feel so inadequate.But we have always chosen a cabin between decks. Only passenger cabins above. I dont begrudge the power walkers, feel so envious that they can do it. But they should respect the times it is allowed. I am not indestructible. I have found out the hard way. But I will give and take. Let us all enjoy our cruises.

                        When we were on Marco Polo - where the waves lapped over our porthole we were so low down - the neighbors were two of the entertainers who watched action movies with lots of car chases and shooting whenever they weren't performing - and they either had them turned up loud or the cabin walls were this - probably both.
                        And there was a persistent smell of warm diesel - the only good thing was I lostquite a lot of weight in a couple of weeks as the food wasn't to my taste.
                        We never sailed Marco Polo again.

                          Good Morning Phil,
                          The only sad thing about your Fred Olsen experience is that you booked a cabin below the promenade deck! To be honest, I wouldn't want other people's sympathy thank you very much. Sorry to hear about your hips and knees. As I said originally, life is too short to worry about trivialities!!!
                          Must dash as I am off to Belize, via Miami today, and we will be boarding soon.

                              Arthritic hips and knees are not trivialities in anyone book.
