    Azura - Hand Gel

    Hi Freda Sorry I offended you and my comment was not necessary to make the point about the lack of enforcement to use hand gel. Our last to cruises were with Celebrity who did deploy staff to dispence gel on the entrances to all eating venues. So I was shocked when I read reviews mentioning on the Azura this was not the case. Like you Littlesteelo if you walked past , say talking, you felt bad that you had missed it. I wonder if its a Ship thing, cutting staff to save costs rather than a company issue ? However P+O need to address this on the Azura

    Azura - Hand Gel

    Hopefully someone from P+O reads the reviews. I think the visable enforcement / encouragement makes people more aware of the issues, you will always get the old lady who picks up every pear in the bowl until she find the soft one !!

    Look out for and avoid Amy Abler a very poor act. Athough she played the piano very well the act was very very poor.

    Deep sea fishing from AFT stateroom balcony

    [quote name='CCnoob2010']I would like to clean it, put it on ice, and send up to the kitchen to prepare for dinner. Exactly! I would even share with my tablemates.[/quote] Celebrity will charge you $25 'A Catch fee' to eat your own fish ! Remember they are part of 'Pirates of the Royal Caribbean'

    A 13 year old in the gym

    [quote name='Softball20']My read on these rules is that the cruise lines (and gyms) don't want kids in there who don't know what they are doing and just go into play around. It's not only a liability issue, but a pain for those of us who do like to work out. For me, however, that same "pain" can be said of adults who decide that they are going to start working out on vacation, and also don't know what they are doing and take up time and space on the equipment. My girls typically would go to the gym before the were "of age," (which varies by cruise line) and as they are both athletes, they did know what they were doing and went in to use the gym for the purpose for which it was designed, and not to play. I'd say that if your son knows what he is doing, you should try. We always did, and I don't ever remember them being asked to leave. It's great that he likes to work out and wants to keep it up on vacation!!!!![/quote] Softball 20 Great point, clearly some of the Gym users have never been inside a gym until they get on a ship, why is that. You brought a smile to may face. And boy you do see some sights !
