Main one is rude, young kids running amuck all of the ship. If u wouldn't leave your child unattended in large, public place at home don't here. I agree fully with previous post that many claim their vacation and they enjoy not seeing their kids much all week. Some like to spin they are teaching indepdence or they don't want do what parents are. The ship isn't a babysitter nor everyone else on board. Sad really it is even a problem. Vacation with kids sbe family vacation IMO. Take one without kids if you don't want parent while cruising.

I'm surprised you didn't quote me since you are a nurse. I'm wondering why you'd rather have my Enema flaking skin fall into the buffet food if I used the hand sanitizer? Doctors orders not to use it.

As far as the balcony light, the first night our neighbor had his on all night. When we saw him in the hall and asked if he knew the balcony light was on. He did not and apologized.
We sit on the Balcony every nite and have a couple glasses of wine..It is one of the reasons we book balcony rooms only....When i tell people how many shooting stars my wife and I have seen in our 40+ cruises people always ask after how many glasses of wine ? It is so relaxing sitting outside at night and when people leave their outside light on it takes away the nite view.(.P.S. some people use the outside light as a nite light.....) I have asked the cabin steward many times to turn off the outside light in the room next to me and have done it, and many people just do not know about the light... And i have also called the room and asked for them to turn it off and people do....

I don't even know what this means. Every restaurant you have been to when they ask if you want more soda, they do exactly what you are referring too. How is this not sanitary? You are just pressing on a plastic bar.
The reason it is not 'sanitary' is because you have had your lips on the cup. When you press it against the bar you are transferring traces of your saliva onto the bar, all ready for the next person who comes along.

As someone said up thread, straws are often used in land restaurants, so your lips do not touch the rim of the cup. It is also a different matter with the machines that have a button to press so that the cup does not have to press the lever.

I have never called, but I was tempted to. So many times the balcony lights are left on all night and it ruins the viewing of the night sky. One of my favorite places is on the balcony.
