Frankly I think the "cut rate" excuse is beyond nonsense. There is absolutely no evidence to support it. The QM2 was near mutiny on its maiden voyage(because of missed ports and reportedly bad service) and it had nothing at all to do with cut rate. This cut rate excuse is the equivalent of racial or ethnic stereotypes. The wealthy are just as prone to bad behavior(see the overpaid baseball or football players or some of the fans). NCL has had some of the cheapest cruises out of Florida to the Bahamas or the less expensive ones out of Charleston or New Orleans and hasn't had this problem. Every once in a while you get the same or similar complaint out of cruises from Puerto Rico....and I think Cruise critic printing the speculation of those who weren't on the cruise is blogger yellow journalism.
