how much did you pay???


Recommended Posts

nothing annoys :angry:  me more than getting on your cruise talking to some lovely passengers for them to suddenly turn round and ask you the most personal of questions 'how much did you pay?'!

I dont ask them how much they earn in a year so why do you want to know how much i do!

 

i paid what i paid and i was happy with it. im on holiday and want to enjoy it not be shoved down my throat that someone got it cheaper or got some more on board spend!

I find this only to be the British passengers as the americans and other nationalities dont seem to care and they are just oin there for a good time!

 

come on Brits your giving us a bad name!!! :wacko:

If someone starts off this conversation and mentions a "Cheap Price" paid......, our stock answer is "Really...... you had to pay that much". It tends to finish off that topic of conversation.

I agree, why dont you just ask how much my salary is aswell, and my bra size?? i mean for goodness sake, how rude can some people be!!  

Have to agree with this thread. The British are unhealthily obsessed with money and this isn’t helped by the government and media constantly banging on about it. Everyday there is a different money related news story... house prices going up, house prices going down, in recession, out of recession. No wonder that’s all the UK talk about. You're on holiday, please give it a rest!

i can honestly say i have travelled on a few american ships and all other nationalities do not even think to ask you how much you paid! in my experience its just the brits! we were recently on an american ship with a few americans and they were brilliant they couldnt care less how much everyone paid they were just on there to have a good time! one guy was spending between 3 - 8k a day in the casino! it became a running joke such a down to earth bloke!

I don't recall anyone asking me how much I paid but I would be very irritated. In fact I don't think I would even remember how much I paid. Once the cruise is booked and the money put aside I don't really care.

Related to this are the people who constantly monitor the costs of a booked cruise and moan when the price goes down. They have got the deal that they wanted and presumably were happy when they booked it so that should be the end of it. It seems to be Americans who are particularly prone to this.
