I totally agree with all of what has already been said here by the previous persons two persons. All 14 reasons listed are very much more good reasons to be aware of ahead of a cruise but certainly not any reasons to stay away from cruising... no way. We have been on many a cruise as Elite passengers but certainly NOT afraid of them to not cruise at all. If there are many people who are afraid of cruising for any or many of the printed reasons... then by all means don't go as you could ruin a perfectly enjoyable cruise for other people? Stay home, be a "cruise pooper" you will miss so much of life all around our wonderful world... More cabins available for all the rest of us cruisers to enjoy.
I love your point about just staying home if you think you are a person who would fret about any of these things; stay home so you don't ruin somebody else's cruise.
I wouldn't want to miss the entertainment value of the complainers.
When we get one of those types I can see it in my wife's eyes not to start anything at the table. She knows I like to egg them on.
