It's been a couple of years now since our last cruise. We were so put off with our last due to dinner companions with strong political views, that we finally moved to a table for two.
We're Canadian and both of us have voted both sides of center over the years, depending on who is running and record to date. But on our last cruise, we simply couldn't get a table without conservative Americans who felt it was their duty to strongly lecture all the people at the table about the merits of Donald Trump. Most of these were retirees, apparently well educated and financially comfortable. This would occur at the assigned dinner tables, and often at lunch and breakfast in the dining room, where you're seated with a different set of strangers at each meal. It was so bad that we decided we no longer wish to cruise.
It almost seems that dining room assignments might have to take political leanings into consideration, when making up the table assignments.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Any suggestions for being seated at a non-political table?
