So, I will take the other side of the coin. WIth Carnival actually trying to work on the problem, with the exposure the problem got in USA Today, and the chatter here on CC, maybe there will be a change in attitude at RCI and they will enforce the rules.

All the naysayers are welcome to jump on a ship and report back the total and complete failaure of any and all efforts to solve the problem....we will wait until November and look for positive results.

Maybe it just comes from reading to many threads, but it seems there is more desire the "hate" the cruise line so many of us prefer, just wonder how RCI actually gets anyone on any of their ships!
It's the FOOD!!! Oh, everyone hates that, too. But they keep on eating. (between trips in the pool)

I concur. I thought I was the only one who got on their ships because I enjoyed them!

So you have helped me figure it out! The chairs hogs are the ones that overfill their plates in the WJ and cannot get back to their saved seats because they are too busy going back for seconds so when they get home they can come here and post about what a terrible product RCI has!

Our recent AOS trip we were amazed at people reserving loungers in the sun and in the shaded area. Then going off for breakfast for 2 hrs. Returning to spend some time in the sun maybe for an hr or so. Only then to move to thier shaded loungers.
Did they give up the sunny seats? of course not.
Cracked me up to watch the games they were all playing.
These types of people makes me want to scream!

I don't need to sit by the pool. We have never had a problem finding chairs.

You are a fast learner.

Some of the greatest fun is in watching what people do.
