First off I'd like to thank you all for posting such great information on this site. My family went on our first cruise ever on the Majesty of the Seas June 14th sailing. It was incredible and we are now hooked on cruising. The staff were exceptional and really helped make our cruise memorable especially Dos our assistant waiter and Jimmy our cabin steward. We at in the Mikado dining room, late seating. There was one horrific event that occured that I thought I should share.
One night at dinner (i'm not sure which one) a teenage boy at the table behind us began to choke. His grandfather who is a doctor administered the heimlich manuever. These drunk trashy ladies at a table near ours began taking pictures of the boy and laughing as he was choking and puking. It was the most classless, horrible thing I've ever witnessed. People around our table (including ours) began to chastize the ladies for their behavior to no avail. The boy was fine (but embarressed) and the crew responded to the emergency accordingly. My question is, why didn't the head waiter kick these ladies out of the dining room??? I know they have a right to their meal but they had upset and disturbed the boy, his family (who were a huge party), and all the tables around them (including mine). After the boy left his family was in tears, my family was in tears, and we had all lost our appetites. This experience by no means spoiled our cruise but it certainley could have if we let it. What is (or what should be) the appropriate response of the staff to these obnoxious dinner patrons?
