I just don't get the people that will just ignore rules because it suits them. The rules are in place for a reason as it effects EVERYONE on the ship. Opening your veranda door on a cruise ship is entirely different then opening your balcony door in a hotel. See above post.

For those of you who continue to come up with excuses for your justification in breaking the rules, all I can say is, karma is a ***** and will come back to bite you eventually.

Given that, I'm surprised any CM seeing one open doesn't mention it should be closed.

And all you guys stop sucking out my air!!!

I think we're talking about having the door open for longer than it takes to walk out of or into the room. So, "airing the room" would be not acceptable.

What about Alaska? Is the reverse also true -- letting out all the heat?

So basically if you walk out onto the verandah in the morning to enjoy the sunrise and leave the door open behind you this is a huge no no.

So basically nobody ever does this. They look at that sign and think "my goodness, if I leave the door open I am causing harm not only to myself but everyone around me".

I dont understand how a few open sliding doors can effect an entire cruise ship, but god forbid karma come back to bite me in the tail because I wanted to enjoy some fresh air.

It must be really cold and miserable in some places that people have to argue over leaving a sliding glass door open in a room. Why dont we argue about people with strollers and the hallways and elevators. that would seem to be more of a issue than this.

Leaving the door open will affect the climate controls, regardless of where the cruise is.

It doesn't directly effect the entire ship. But it does effect the deck/area in the vicinity of the open door. And, if enough of those areas are being compromised, more of the ship is effected.

Yes, people do leave their doors open, despite being asked not to. Yes, it does effect others onboard.

Sure people do. And apparently the people in the room next to them could be wondering why their room feels humid even though they have the A/C on.

Per bolded part, obviously you did not read the prior post from an actuall engineer on the ship or you would not be confused.

And again, your excuses and justification just proves my point.

a point that you love to look at people and tell them what is right or wrong, then yes. and yes, i totally believe everything i read or what people post on a message board. get real! LOL

Since you believe everything, did you know that when two rooms that are adjacent to each other if both doors are open at the exact same time on Mondays at noon, that the ship enters a vortex and could be sucked to the bottom of the ocean by the kraken. so please make sure the doors are closed..

Here is an article that talks about how it uses more energy if guests leave the doors open and it could effect the other rooms, but nobody has strict guidelines. Its just a suggestion not to leave the door open.

So people need to step away from the ledge, its not effecting the entire cruise. These cruise lines want the doors to remain closed due to energy usage. And for those that say you should follow this because it uses less energy tell me when the last time you went on vacation and didnt keep the hotel room colder than you would at home. People go on vacation to enjoy and spoil themselves. now if its causing discomfort to someone else then by all means you should avoid the activity, but if nobody is getting hurt then stop complaining about it.

Lol! The thing is, a CM couldn't see that your veranda door was open. I don't get how someone says their room steward didn't say anything to them when theirs was open a lot. They certainly couldn't have been cleaning the room because they couldn't keep the stateroom door open at the same time. And if they happened to knock on your door and saw you had a hard time opening it, well I would guess this would be when they might say something. There are things they let slide because they are dependent on tips and may not want to rock the boat with a guest, but I am sure they would definitely say something if the neighboring stateroom had been complaining about the conditions in their room or if they saw it consistently. I am sure most of the time it is for less than a minute and CMs aren't going to question everything.

What I really don't get is, if you want fresh air, why wouldn't you be out ON the veranda that you paid to have?
