I don't see what was so offensive with his talk. I heard laughing and applause from the audience. I believe a few were upset and got a mob mentality and people fed off that. They should still be ashamed.

I see nothing rude about him, I thought he did very well explaining. What does people expect?. That is the chance you take during hurricane season.

Many people seem to think that paying for a cruise is akin to having 1100 staff members be their dancing monkey for a week.

Batman, if you think that was rude, you haven't been anywhere, you need to spend a week in N.Y.C.

I dont see where the Capt was rude at all. He presented the facts as they were. He said he "could have been rude". He is also correct in that the ship does not have to take you to a port.

I could be wrong...but I don't believe Batman is saying the Captain was rude...just for folks to judge for themselves.

Default Thank you for posting the video

IMO the Captain did a wonderful job explaining that the safety of his passengers was his number one concern...as it should be!

Very professional and nothing rude at all. I would hope to have him as a Captain on one of my future cruises.

I thought he was firm and matter of fact, not rude at all. I dont know the whole story of what took place ( I can only imagine though), and if he needed to explain and firmness was warranted, then so be it.

I suppose the only part that might have rubbed someone the wrong way was his use of "...I pick you up in NY and drop you off in NY and where we go inbetween is none of your business". OK, the cure for that is thicken your skin and suck it up.

Probably because that is what the folks that threw the fit "claimed" as their reason for rioting.

They said the reason they acted the way they did was because the Captain was rude.

Batman is simply providing footage so that we can see if their actions ( and their labeling the Captain as rude) were justified.

Just because he said what needed to be said and not what some people wanted to hear does not make him rude. I though he did a good job stateing his case.
