I didn't insinuate anything thank you. I know how I feel about my children. And if you read my post I stated it was MY opinion. However if you don't share the views of the others here then it's full on attack mode. Kind of "obnoxious" IMO. What a great word. It should be used more :-)

It is simply NOT possible for any of the CMs in the club to know where every single child is at any given point when supervising the groups. When you have a 1:25 ratio it's not going to happen in that environment. The kids are not sitting at desks in a well-lit classroom that they were assigned to. These are young kids age 3-12 who move from one activity to another. They don't have to report to the CM in one room of the club to tell them they are going to another room and when they will be back. They simply get up and leave that area. I don't understand how anyone could expect that realistically. If you expect your child to be monitored that closely, then DCL's kid clubs are NOT for you IMO.

I really don't see it meriting a free cruise. But maybe I'm speaking as one of those parents who must not love their kids as much as you
And the point I'm making is no matter where the child was found. They didn't know where the child was.

So instead of monetary compensation for another cruise....let's add further insult and offer park passes. Offering them something that allows me the opportunity to spend more money in your establishment is hardly a form of compensation.

Who says they even want to go back?

Yeah, you didn't insinuate anything. The several posters that interpreted it that way must be smoking the crack pipe tonight. Shame on them and my apologies. Do I need to put the word sarcasm in parenthesis for it to come across? I can never remember...

Great for you. My child wouldn't be going back.

Horray for yourself and the other posters that jumped on the bandwagon. Feel better?

Ugh...no bandwagon. We all just happened to think the same thing about your "insinuation" and posted at the same time. Nice try though...

You're entitled to your opinion as am I. Difference is I'm ok with others having a varying opinion. If you and whoever else would like to think the same thing about what you think I may have "insinuated" then power to you.

That somehow they don't love their children "that much" is just beyond comprehension.
Again, I won't judge. People have different life experiences and cope in different manners...negatively or positively.

1) Have you ever searched for a missing child?
2) If so, was the out come a happy event?

I can answer theses questions from my experience

1) yes
2) no.

I didn't know him, but i was on the beach when his body was found. My father attempted to shield me, but I saw, smelled...and heard everything, especially his mother's wail. It's something, you never truly forget. It's in the back of my mind and moves to the pit of my stomach...makes me a bit nauseous when I hear about a missing child.

Everyone would be saying "I'll NEVER cruise with them." Or "I won't LET my family and friends cruise with them".......
No, it's not true. The rest of my cruise would have been happy because I would be so happy to have my child with me, regardless of which cruise line.

Had the child been found outside of the club, I would have been livid and would not trust the club - regardless of cruise line, but the child was where he was supposed to be. The dad couldn't find him even though he says he looked over the entire club himself.

OK, since this has turned into a verbal war instead of a discussion it is being closed.
