    Are the people who work on cruises trained monkeys who pretend to be nice and like you? Or are there genuinely nice people? My stateroom guy was very nice to me, very responsive, but he was talking to my brother in law with the same kind of energy, gave him a couple of towels turned to walk and it looked like his face turned into a blank slate until he looked up and saw me and then the mask came back on....is it just me? Or is this a thing on cruises.....I know they don't get paid much, and tips are a big thing, but I hate fakers.

    Cruises are like being stuck in a bad Walmart for a week, I'll never go on one again

    They are usually foreigners who are probably happy to be employed, so I think most are genuine.

    Bad Walmart is the only Walmart.

    Cruises are a large mass of fatsos eating in the middle of the ocean who all sleep in tiny quarters.

    You are certainly mr. negative today. Might I suggest a trip to the happiest place on earth? Maybe a Disney cruise.

    BTW, your description of a cruise is just what I imagined them to be. Never done one, never will.

    My old boss went on a cruise and really dug it. I never saw the attraction. You're trapped on a boat.

    Last cruise I went on was a 4-day short cruise to the Bahamas out of Miami with my ex-girlfriend. It wasn't that bad, but there were a bunch of uncultured morons on the boat, rushing to buffets and such, knocking people over to get at it, not getting dressed up for the captain's dinner, dumb shit like that.

    I remember when they opened the casino, I played blackjack and started winning. I began betting chips for the dealer, we won, and the dealer - some British kid, was incredulous that I tipped him. I mean, tears were welling up in this kid's eyes! I then noticed that NONE of the cheap fucks at my table were tipping anyone (not the dealers or the cocktail waitresses), and it pissed me off...

    What did you see? Drive by shootings? Fire hydrants opened to cool people off?

    the casino was fucking unprofessional as hell. Kids running through the casino, fucking claw games, which probably confused the kids. Penny Slots and people checking their cellphones at tables, which is annoying as hell.

    All that and the chance that you'll contract some kind of virus while on board.

    I never was on a cruise but I did own a canoe once. You could drink beer and pee off the side. Hope this helps.
