Everyone’s got problems. Some problems are just a bit, how should we say, less significant than others (and therefore much more fun to laugh at). A couple of Cruise Critic members took to the boards with a sailing spin on a popular Internet trend. What resulted is a delightful reflection of cruisers’ most potentially pressing dilemmas.

        #cruiseworldproblems Sitting on your balcony when you reach the bottom of the glass and even if your wife loses the coin toss, you know you are still going up to the Lido Bar to get fresh mojitos.

        The last day of the cruise when it’s time time to leave! Especially when you see the people who are doing a back-to-back still lounging by the pool while you are waiting for disembarkation.
