    Popsicle reacted to Scribeswtr in Complaints?   
    Just read all the thread and afraid comments made reflect our own experience on Arcadia from which we returned last week. We were on Freedom dinning and when the same couple appeared on our table after having had to put up with their moaning on a previous evening, I had to point out that I was very much enjoying the ship and the cruise and the only thing that on occasions broke into the enjoyment of the cruise was people who continuously moaned about their dislikes to other passengers. That was the last we heard from the 'moaners' as a short starp comment seemed to shut them up. I suggest all passengers who come into contact with these boring people, respond with a similar gesture. If they have a genuine complaint, they should politely address this to the appropriate crew member. Not spoil everyone else's holiday.

    As a member of the forum, and of the cruise club itself, I am deeply disappointed to see such personal slurs being aired on this thread. As many have said, there is a time and a place, and this forum is most certainly not the place.
     
    132LK132 - Your comments have done nothing but come across as bitter and underhand, and to be quite frank made you look like an unsavoury character yourself. I suggest that if you have no positive input, or contribution to make that you take yourself somewhere else and leave this forum alone. You will not succeed in silencing our most valuable members who regardless of previous forum activity, bring a massive amount of information and help to this site.

    I have noted the remarks made about Solent Richard and as I have posted a picture with caption assume the same remarks apply to me.  Could I just say that my posting was not an ego booster or self publicity but rather another reminder of this special time of year and a time I personally get enjoyment out of. Its a great opportunity to meet and chat with the public about the Legion and various other subjects. I also appreciate there are thousands of others like me who give up their time to assist the charity. For me it is about doing some good for those who are with or have served with the armed forces, who were not as fortunate as me, and for the families of those that didn't make it home.

    While I treat your comments as ‘water off a duck’s back’ I’m sure others will see your comments as a slur against all those dedicated volunteers who give their time, not always in the best of weather conditions, to raise both awareness and funds for those who gave so much.

    I do not understand this sleight on Easyjet and Ryanair, two companies that have revolutionised the airline market in Europe and caused a shakeout of the inefficient state owned monopolies that for decades gave the public a "take it or leave it attitude", while continually lobbying for "back door" state subsidies.

    Well I can vouch for the service of Poppy as well.
     
    Probably the most memorable was while I was touring Australia last year when the Cunard 175th Anniversary cruise went live.
     
    Two emails, a hold and a confirmation and Poppy achieved  exactly what I wanted.
     
    That was promptly followed earlier this year on the 2016/17 P&O Launch  day. Again, my request for an Oceana 'Mini-Suite' was achieved in record time.
     
    Great service that included the Bolsover Cruise Club Loyalty Discount.

    I have always been quite satisfied with the service, I don't feel I need to have my food delivered on a silver platter, and spooned onto my plate. So long as the quality of food is high, the taste enjoyable and the service is pleasant and efficient, I couldn't care less how it is served. (Please don't take that as a cue to start launching food at me!!)

    As others have said, it's the people not the ship.. NoroVirus isn't exclusive to ships, it's just more known on ships.
     
    I disagree with the comment that cruise companies should berth the ships to deep clean now and again - I don't think that it would be logistically possible for them to do that, and in terms of the overall number of ships sailing the world, and the amount of episodes of NV reported that cause such massive problems being so small in comparison, I think they do a fantastic job as it is.

    The amount of passengers i see clearly ignoring the handwash, or walking out the loos without washing their hands, the ironic thing is they probably arnt the ones who get sick but the other 1000+ passengers are all at risk because of someones inability to keep up personal hygene! gross!
