Anywhere you go, you’re bound to meet at least a couple of people who aren’t so pleasant. Cruises are no exception. Perhaps someone cut in front of you at the buffet. Maybe the last one in the elevator left it smelling like anything but roses. Regardless of the infraction, we bet there are one or two groups of folks you’d love to see ousted from the ship’s log. So, we decided to find out just which types of cruisers are the most notorious….
What we asked: If you could ban one type of cruiser, which would it be?
What they said: Nearly 34 percent — the largest number — said they’d ban rude children. Tied for second are balcony smokers and deck-chair hogs, each with 24 percent of votes. Voters are most tolerant of heavy drinkers; only 18 percent would give ‘em the boot.
What it all means: Parents, control your kids. Although I’ve never personally encountered misbehaving children onboard, lots of respondents seem to have had that misfortune. For those of you hogging chairs or blowing smoke onto other cruisers’ balconies, be forewarned that someone is probably somewhere quietly plotting your demise (or at least how to tell you off). As for heavy drinking, we’re glad that most are a bit more lenient — it is vacation, after all.
