those who particiapte in anti-social behavior on land..would just as likely to do so on a cruise..

seen it happen in our own family..to this day..2 of my nephews will never
cruise with the family again..social misfits should nt be allowed on a cruise ship..
they ruin the social enviorment and can pose a danger to other passengers..

cruiselines should shoulder some of the blame..by offering drinks freely and not enforcing
already published guidelines..only offer misfits an excuse to excercise their anti-social
behavior..

I have to agree fully with DeepNite 10 -- there are some people who have no concept of proper behaviour aboard a cruise ship ... but I also fault the cruise lines for not adhering to their published rules and regulations.

Prime example: just returned from a cruise where (at a guess) nearly 5% of the cruisers (in my muster group) didn't bother to show up for the boat drill. Worse than that, no effort was made to even check to see if all the cruisers were there or not ... with laxity like that, I guess I was fortunate that the ship suffered no emergencies during the cruise.

Dress code for the main dining room was a total joke, with people showing up for the evening meal STILL WET AND DRIPPING from the pool - with nothing but a towel around them for cover. Either enforce your rules, or do away with them ..............
