But did they come back after time had expired to remove the items?

Nope, didn't think so.

Last week on the Glory, the deck staff acted as if they didn't know the "policy" even existed, and refused to enforce it.

Would be nice if they continuously enforced it. Last month on the Breeze they did this on the first day and then never did it again. I thought oh wow...love it...until the next day and the next and the next when they did not even bother.

5 or 10? What if someone has to run to their cabin to get something or pick up a kid from Camp?

I also found on the Breeze that this was not enforced at all. Saw 1 tag in 8 days...

It be nicer if people would just follow the rules and not have the overworked cruise workers take on another duty that should be covered by the signage.

I am wondering how rampant chair saving is on port days.

Will people get up and place their crap on chairs then head out to the port for the day?

My intentions are to stay on the ship- enjoy the peace and quiet but I dont want to encounter where I have to fight to find a chair
