Thread: How do you protect yourself on a cruise?

    @ icemanii Not making a dig at bikers or any other group since I also fit the stereotype; bearded, tattooed, long hair, earring and rode a Harley I built for eighteen years. My point was that, being inexpensive, lower economic groups can afford Carnival-that's why I chose them for our vacation. Spend more & you'll be traveling with more professionals, fewer blue collar folks it that makes you feel better. The only trouble I've ever seen was drunk frat boys. I don't think violence afloat is escalating, but there are three thousand passengers on board-they can't all be choir boys.

How many do you think would come back if they did that? Especially if it turned out some teenager was just being stupid, which I guarantee has happened more than once. It's a cruise ship not a maximum security prison. A steak knife doesn't pose enough of a threat on a ship to justify that, like it would an airliner. What's the person going to do hijack the boat and hold over 1000 people hostage with a steak knife?
    sometimes it is wiser to ignore responses like the one you are responding to, too stupid for words is how I see it

    No offense taken, just picking a bit, (Need to find that sarcasm font).

    Only time I saw anyone worry about 'bikers' on a cruise was when the wife convinced me to the the first ever Hogs on the High Seas cruise years ago. Felt bad for the regular passengers, Nothing like 2000 Harley riders on a cruise ship to make things strange!!

    On that cruise I can honestly say security was a bit lax. I know quite a few people made it on with pocket knives and their own booze.

    Carnival is the worst of the worst. If you're lucky you'll get one of the boats that's NOT staffed by Kathy Lee....

    Seriously, they have the highest instance of major food poisoning, mechanical problems, and every other problem of any cruise line. If you go, you obviously don't care enough about your safety to be thinking about bringing weapons. You're practically asking for it.
    My first thought as well. You usually get what you pay for and that is true with Carnival. Not saying you cannot have a good time and many people do, but with all the other lines out there, there are more prudent choices for an overall good time and SAFE time. Think of it this way----if it is pretty much the cheapest (and you can change that to "most value for the money"), it will attract more people who want to score but do not want to put up more upfront money than they have to or can afford to.

    We have been on a couple of Carnival Cruises and have had a great time on both.
    I will agree, the Line is not the top of the line, but I have also heard a few complaints about other cruise lines as well.
    I think for my family we had a great safe time. Maybe its the luck of the draw, I don't know but we will sail again... Maybe Carnival, Maybe not. It depends on who is going where and how much they want at that point in time. It is all about Dollars and cents for me but my families safety comes before anything else.
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,
    the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    Walking stick/cane. Heavy belt buckle.

    What you say isn't as important as what the other person hears
