Cruises look like they are a lot of fun. You get to board in a sunny destination like Miami, Florida and then head out to some islands in the Bahamas for some sun-soaked adventures. Or, you can get on a river cruise in Europe and stop off at historical towns up and down some very famous rivers. However, for these guests, in particular, their expectations weren’t quite met. Of course, not everyone has the same experience, and there are plenty of people who enjoy their holiday cruise. The following details some of the expectations of cruise life versus how it really was for these guests.
When you first arrive on the dock, you see your cruise ship off in the distance. It looks majestic as it is gently bobbing on the emerald-colored waves of the ocean, and it is an excellent time for a photo op.
As you approach the loading area, you see that it is actually crammed with people jostling to get on board with all of their luggage and get settled in their cabins before you depart. This can be a very hectic experience that might even involve getting elbowed, so watch out.
