Actually, there is a partial solution, quit sailing on ships that take on thousands and thousands of passengers. If you confine your sailing to ships under 1000, than you cut your exposure odds by 66% of running into miscreants, entitled or otherwise social pariahas

 

Entitlement doesn't work that way: Those who get so ridiculously upset about other passengers wearing a bathrobe as coverup at the pool instead of some purpose-crafted pool coverup will invariably also expect that other people should quit sailing on "their" ships, rather than those complainers acknowledging that they should do so.

In any event, reducing the total number of persons your might be exposed to, reduces the  odds   of running into  those with which you might find objection to.    figure 20% are jerks...on a 1000 pax ship thats 200   But on a 3000 pax ship its 600 !        As to entitlement, cruise lines like Celebrity, actively  promote  entitlement by having all these faux elite levels...separate entrance to the dining room, "special" this and that to inflate egos and  the cruise lines profit at the same time...

Smaller cruise lines motivate excessive entitlement in their own way, but as you said, you're subjected to less of it just because there are fewer people around you.
