Hot on the Forums: Proposed Pastimes, Mismatched Couples and Dining Room Don’ts

Hot on the Forums
Love reading the Cruise Critic boards? So do we! Every Friday, we end the week on the Lido Deck by selecting a few forum threads that have made us laugh, cry or argue the finer points of cruising.
Bored now? While Royal Caribbean ships are well-known for their unusual onboard activities – a skydiving simulator and bumper cars are slated for new build Quantum of the Seas – that doesn’t stop fans from dreaming what’s next. On this thread started by shipmate13, suggested shipboard additions include more lectures about history and ports, sing-along movies (we vote for Sound of Music!) – and skeet shooting.
ISTJ vs. ENFP: Here at Cruise Critic, we love the Myers-Briggs personality test – and so do our readers. On the Ask a Cruise Question forum, SuitCaseBears wonders how Introvert and Extrovert mates survive traveling together (compromise, patience and a good dose of dedicated quiet reading time seem to be the best solutions).
Dining Room Don’ts: On the Norwegian board, kcwingwalker reposted a list of pet peeves that crew members notice in the main dining room (the article originally appeared on Crew Center, a website for ship employees of all stripes). Among the sins: Ordering multiple entrees, stealing the servers’ pens and taking endless pictures of your food (while I’m guilty of the latter, I do have the sense to turn off my flash).
