Sojourn - Caribbean: When your vacation plans get trumped

Recommended Posts

Interesting. Reading not just this Seabourn forum but a few other lines as well, it seems a recurring theme. Cuba got cancelled 6 months out, cruise lines got “stuck” with Caribbean itineraries, and to fill the ships these itineraries were then send to cheap consolidators, resulting to a very different type of clientele on board (can I put it like that?) - with all the challenges that brings. Shame.

 Apparently short shorts are ok in the restaurant for some.  

 
 
WHAT????? Men or women?!!
It offended me when someone wore a baseball cap all through dinner when we were on the Odyssey in October. I wish the Maitre 'D would enforce the dress code a little!

Cheap consolidators--that's a term I've been looking for.

Baseball caps allowed in the Dining Room might possibly be for, say, a war-veteran with a head-wound; not for someone who is just brain deficient.   But I’ve seen them worn in circumstances in which they serve one useful purpose for me: they remove any thought of looking into what may be going on underneath: just like Birkenstocks remove any interest in what may be going on above.

The dress code issue appears to be corporate not allowing staff to do anything. They can mention the dress code but that’s it. They must seat/serve the violators.
