I haven’t cruised since 2007. We have been going on all inclusive land vacations. We are considering going on another cruise. We experienced chair hogs back then. We get up super early, used to it because of work, and when we go to the pool area whatever chair we choose to sit in that is not occupied and appears to be saved, we remove the items. We will use our seats from about 6:00am until 1:00pm. I remain in the seat as my husband gets our food. There is no reason to leave seats unoccupied unless you are in the pool or hot tub. If we can manage it this way so can others. This crap with saving seats is ridiculous.
