Because it's rude not to leave some for others. I read on here that they have run out of tails before everyone got one. It's as rude as hogging pool and theater chairs. It's called sharing.

 

 

 

If they ran out a product is because they are not doing something right aka bad logistic. They never ran out of alcohol, paper for the pictures etc. there is so much waste on a cruise but they want to save when it comes to lobster night? Most of the time it’s the waiter who brings you another one without asking you.

The only time a waiter used the “you have to wait for everybody else” card was on the Adventure 5 yrs ago. I was caught off guard and just ask for one but minutes later my table mates woke up Well, I was traveling with my family so I told her to add a lobster to everyone in the table.

I think that they stopped serving lobster in the main dining room and offer it only in the specialty restaurants

What's up with people always trying to get on before others get off? They act like it's the last elevator ever.

 

They have figured it out very logically: no mechanism lasts forever. Every elevator system will stop working at some point. By pushing and getting on an elevator earlier than you might have by waiting, you reduce the chance of having missed the last elevator going your way.

 

Millions of New Yorkers have figured this out - that is why, at every stop, they are pushing their way on before exiting passengers are able to make room for them.

Incorrect, it is still offered on one formal night of the sailing. A bigger and better lobster is also offered everynight in the main dinning room but for an upcharge.

Please check the new Royal Caribbean app. It is still being offered in the MDR.

If that's true on your usual cruise line, then it's time to trade up.

knock me off my bar stool, as you’re desperate to get served, then pretend you did nothing of the sort, even though 4 people witnessed it

 

steal people’s Christmas decorations from their cabin doors and throw them in the trash so that security have to check cctv to give them back to the owner in pieces

 

Put your used plates outside your neighbours cabin door

 

Use the staircase as seating blocking anyone walking up or down, leave a gap

To bad so many comments/suggestions are just basic manners. I understand when we go on vacation we might take some liberties, but there is a line when you are taking away from others fun. End of sermon.

 

My suggestion, relax. Slow down. I see people rush all over the place and if they hit a speedbump, they panic.

We're not allowed to skinny dip in the pools. Apparently it's frowned upon by everyone else. I wish I had known before... :rolleyes:

Do not scratch your lady parts only minutes before serving yourself at the buffet... and walking right past the hand washing station without using it... so gross

Agree...I also find it annoying that pax seem to want to use the stair case as a chair..worse yet sitting in the middle with their bag next to them. Really?...like there are not enough chairs around at all the common areas and lounges? Rude, lazy, and inconsiderate. :(

 

Do they realize the stairs are used by feet that have been in...umm...whatever those feet have stepped in lately? :o

While I am a huge proponent of the "balcony club", I also respect my neighbors and believe everyone else should as well. I see no need to broadcast my activities with the people around me. If you do manage to hear, by all means laugh away.

 

Really........ just ish.

If you think others don't know what you are 'up to' you are fooling yourself. No respect there.

There are children that cruise too.

Do not leave the balcony door open at night!;p:halo:

 

 

Why? (Genuine question; I’m a newbie to cruising and was planning to do this on our cruise next month.)

It plays havoc with the a/c & ventilation systems in the rooms around you .

I've seen kids do it. And their parents said nothing. Makes me want to throw up in my mouth a bit just thinking about it.

I say let them lick it. They'll soon learn there's a correlation between licking nasty handrails and their sickness.

Also, an open balcony door would have to be closed before the passage way door could be open without extreme effort. Not a desirable situation in an emergency. Especially not desirable if crew have to enter the cabin in an emergency.

Not to mention that when you do manage to force the corridor door open, the sudden pressure change will turn every loose piece of paper in the room into your own personal snowstorm.

I cruised once with a friend who wanted to always leave the balcony door open! So annoying! In addition to the whole “wind storm” thing, it made the room temperature hard to regulate- it got freezing cold at night and HOT HOT HOT during the day.

Really? I wonder why?

 

That’s disappointing. I was hoping to leave it open at night for fresh air and the sound of the ocean.

Must be...since it's mostly the adults I see sitting in the middle of the stair case...and have to climb around them. :eek::mad:

 

People...these are stairs for feet...not for butts! :o
