If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !
DLRP is quite simply my spiritual home

That's not so say that if I didn't have a blanket or breastfeeding apron with me that I wouldn't feed my child. .. but I tried to do it in a way that didn't draw attention to myself. But I stand on my belief that pregnancy and breastfeeding are purely natural things and Americans should be a little less judgemental.

The CM on the pool deck of course did nothing when I asked him to make the women cover up. And guest services tried to placate me with a bottle of wine. I even said to GS that if it was the Quiet Cove side I would have said nothing it was just that it was on the family side with a ton of kids around including my own.

I pay a premium to be on a Disney ship to ensure a family environment. I am so afraid that DCL won't stand up to these type of people and the cruise line will go down hill and become the next Carnival. Apparently in this situation it made more business sense to protect those new cruisers than to satisfy the request of a repeat cruiser? And the request was that people follow the rules!!! I understand that for some people exposing your private parts is a cultural thing but when you travel you must respect the culture you are visiting. Be warned DCL if you don't stand up and make sure rules will be followed we will take the thousands we spend on vacations each year elsewhere!
A total over reaction. I actually feel sorry for the pool side CM and those at GS that had to address this. I don't even understand why they'd try to placate you, but the wine was a nice touch..

The ships are mutli-national and multi-cultural and we should all be gracious enough to adapt to this. These ladies weren't naked and how would you know they've cruised less than you?

Because they don't want to offend anyone....even to the point of not standing behind their own "rules".
Otherwise, we wouldn't see posts about things like "But I SAW people in the main dining rooms wearing shorts!"...or...."But MY husband wasn't asked to put a dress shirt on at Palo"....

Since this has turned into a breastfeeding debate it is being closed.
