What are some things onboard the ship that just make you cringe?


Recommended Posts

After a few times on the ships I have seen a few things that I just try to stay away from.  It's mostly people who are on the ship that you just fully expect to be an issue.

So for one is a grandmother with the grandkids and you can obviously tell the grandkids can do whatever.  Grandma says don't do that but they know there is nothing she will do to punish them so they feel free to do whatever anyway.  The one I saw the kids were acting like fools and even if someone was already on the elevators they would come in and hit every single button.  When they got on the elevators I got off.

 

Another was a guy who instantly said one thing in my mind.  Roid Rage.  Big beefy burly muscled guy who couldn't reach a post it note in the middle of his back, the type you would see in the gym every single day for hours at a time.  What made it worse is this guy had on a shirt proudly stating he had the unlimited get drunk pass package.  The first thing that popped into my mind is this guy is going to get drunk and end up in a fight.  It just made me cringe to even be around them.

 

So what are the cringeworthy things you guys have seen on the ships.  I have seen video's of people so drunk they sat on the deck chairs and urinate themselves but I am sure there are a ton of other things out there.

I remember one excursion in Nassau the bus driver made an off-hand comment about whoever the current US President was - either Obama or Trump, I don't remember the year - while trying to make small-talk with the guests getting on the shuttle. It did *not* endear him to anyone. 🤣

Not unique to cruising, but especially annoy when cruising.

Guys that want to see whose is bigger so they look tough to everyone around them.  They always seem to think I’m a challenge to them  

I just want to go about my day. I don’t care if you see me as a threat to your manhood.  I’m not going to fight on a ship and neither are you, so just go away.

Oh boy, this is a big one these days. I just dont understand the need to wear political clothing on a ship. All it does it serve to start arguments, or at the very least a lot of dirty looks.

Heck, I don't even wear that stuff in normal daily life. Do I have political opinions? Sure, but I don't need to advertise them to everyone I meet.

People who allow their young children to play as if they were at an outdoor playground when they are actually inside at the Cafe promenade. Kids were chasing each other around other occupied tables.

I really don't understand when it became acceptable for people to allow their children to bother other people.

People who gladly share their opinion that only certain size women should wear certain types of clothes and the boneheads that laugh with him (notably usually a man who has zero room to talk about someone else or ones that last succeeded at secondary school sports).

It is truly shocking to me when people are willing to speak about people in such insensitive and cruel ways (and those who choose to pile on).  No one is your families have a disability, illness, or difference so that you could manage the smallest bit of humanity or at least the sense to realize just how horrible you look to others when you prove you have none? People who say such things are far more disgusting to me than the people they complain about.

St Maarten is known for that. A lot of Europeans vacation there and it is common over there. I'm sure your husband wasn't complaining.

Yeah not sure it was an enjoyable eyeful and I thought that was on the French side??
