Stupid Anti-RC Article

Recommended Posts

It's just to annoy people - I saw one about Disney Cruise Line, too, one of the "intense" things was having to wear pants in the specialty dining venues.

If someone would be discouraged from cruising because of an article like that would you want to sail with them?😀

What's the problem?   Actually most is true.

 

I doubt RC needs anyone to worry about them attracting new cruisers...

When traveling with Royal Caribbean, you have to be crafty in what you choose to bring along. It might be tempting to bring every article of clothing and every pair of shoes you own because there is so much to do and see on a cruise. This cruise line allows up to 90kg of luggage.

 

This is not true.

Read and there's no major critical items that is identified.  We as RCL cruisers are well aware of the rules of engagement before selecting RCL.. No. 9 (No shorts..,was, but this restriction has just about gone by the wayside.  Over the last 4 cruises seen many shorts in the dining rooms, including so called formal night which I cant remember the actual name that RCL goes by these days.

Who cares? Don't like it, don't read it. Sharing it is just upping their view-count and promoting more of them.

The limit on luggage is the only incorrect one as far as I can tell.

And no shorts in MDR  on formal night, one could only hope.

Thanks for posting!  I needed a good laugh today 🙂 and, I had no idea about the scissor one?  I always bring a full sized one with my knitting, and have never been called to the naughty room...

This article to me seems more like click bait

 

The more you spread it, the more you are asking people to click, the more clicks they get, the more reason they have to keep putting these out.

This is getting comical.  I see obviously ridiculous click bait articles about cruising pop up on my Google feed.  And sure enough, people post and start discussing them here.  It's just funny how well silly articles like this work at getting attention and clicks.

9 NO SHORTS ON CASUAL DRESS NIGHTS IN THE DINING AREA
 

Wish they would enforce this one. Not only are shorts being worn on causal nights but also formal nights in dining room. Don’t want to get dressed - fine - the windjammer is for you.

On recent Symphony and Anthem cruises no longer "Formal Night" but "Wear your Best Night."  Saw some Paxs with t-shirt that resembled a Captain's jacket.

Well the article is misleading.  The actual policy is the blade of the scissors can't be longer than 4 inches.  I probably own at least 20 pairs of scissors and maybe one pair has a blade that is longer than 6".  Also RC has scrapbooking cruise groups that are their customers.  I can guarantee the scrapbook groups would not frequent a cruiseline that has extremely restrictive rules on scissors.

Apparently  the staff at the entrance to the MDR disagrees with you if some are getting into the MDR in the evening wearing shorts (#16).

Some ships such as serenade ots definitely do not allow shorts in Mdr except for night 1.   We had been on anthem ots and saw lots of people in shorts.

I actually thought the Disney one was more negative than Royals. Royal’s article seemed to stick to the truth, things people could find on the FAQ page.
