Not a "PC" thing to say but I think you can get a fair idea generally of what someone is like judging from their appearance & behaviour. Mistakes will be made of course but 1st impressions often are true.
I was talking about this very subject to a TA recently, holidays in what they call "drop weeks" do attract those whose standards are somewhat less than we expect.
Some answer questions...I also question answers

[QUOTE=Kuki;1408134]Back in Apr. 2010 I wrote this blog...
Cruisemates Blog Is The Worst Thing About Cruising The Passengers? – Kuki

I also recently wrote a blog entry (for posting in a couple of weeks) talking about the problem now being lack of training... for both staff and passengers.

Passenger training? Training before we cruise.....interesting. Look forward to learning how one trains for a cruise.
