Nope, just people having good fun discussing a topic. No harm done to the first world problems. Unless we start talking about chair hogs.

Now, that is a cringe worthy statement. The "paying his salary" statement always sounds like an excuse to treat people like slaves.

I do remember when Disney first started the called it "The Big Red Boat." Who cares if it call a boat or ship. My DW corrects me all the all the time. I will still call them "boat."

Someone explain this to me because it always confuses me. My hubby and I spent our honeymoon on Premiers Big Red Boat the year Disney launched the Magic. So how could Disney have a Big Red Boat?

He was in no way a jerk.......he was a Maritime Officer and he was totally correct.........a boat is something that can be carried on a ship (although with todays many types of floating craft and thier uses, its not near as black and white as it use to be.)

There is a specail love affair between a sailors and thier craft/ships boats, etc...and using correct terms does nothing more then aid a passinger to understand and enjoy their trip.

Now if your going to use the wrong terms even if you know the right ones..........thats pretty silly IMO.

PS... If he had just smiled.the smile and joke would have been on the person using the wrong terms........personally I would much rather be advised I was wrong, then be walking around continuing to make the same mistake and proving to everyone I was not educated about the vessel (or anything else I was on or using) I was onboard.


PSS just because your paying a a fare.........doesnt means you are a know it all and look smart proving your not a know it all.

[QUOTE=carpenta;47742669]Then STAY on the bridge and stop speaking down to the guests.....The customer is always right...at least in public.....first rule of the private sector retail service.....[/QUOTE]



and one of the worse rules, which I dont follow and have done much better in not following in my business. All telling someone that they are always right, (when they are wrong) usually garrenttees more problems down the line as they think they can demand anything they what and are more upset when they don't get their way.!

..maybe on the USS Reagan but on a family centric fun excursion "boat" it would have been a better decision to smile and walk bye IMO. There is no need to humiliate any "guest" just because you "know" the correct terms and a land lubber does not. Look at all these years the poor poster still tells this story and I would infer had an impact on her cruise. Pick your battles is what I would say and boat vs. ship would not be one I would have chosen in this case.

Yes, it sticks out like a sore thumb when I see the ships referred to as boats. I also cringe when I hear Cay pronounced "kay" instead of "key".

BTW, Disney didn't own the Big Red Boat. That was owned by Premier Cruise Line.

I said Merchant Ships.......the USS Reagan is a aircraft carrier, please make note for future reference or of course you can keep mistating this and be wrong...your decision!.....The Poster did not say humiliated or rude.....that is your overlay. It would not have been better to smile and walk by for all the reasons I stated and you chose not to understand or even consider.


Just for the record......she only said 1st cruise. They never mentioned it was a long time ago and only brougth it up since it was part of the decussion..........agian your overlay.

I disagree on battles.........this was indeed a reason to educate the OP, IMO.
