1. Stress - Don't stress over what other cruisers wear, eat, do. It is your vacation. You have saved and scrimped and traveled many of miles, do what you want to do, wear what you want to wear, eat what you want to eat. Most importantly, mind your own beeswax. 2. Push, Shove, Cheat - Don't push and shove and cheat your way to the head of the line. Remember your manners. Your children are watching, your deity is watching. Be Nice. 3. Lie - Don't lie about what DCL Reservations have told you, or didn't tell you. It's on record and you'll end up looking like a jerk. No, really. 4. Expect perfection. Perfection doesn't exist. Look it up. 5. Plan every second of your day. We all know what happens when you plan things, right? You are on vacation to relax, so relax. 6. Complain that your vacation was ruined because of ____________ - Worst case scenario, you die on the ship. Okay, you're On A Cruise Ship. Dead. Then what? 7. Forget to bring your sense of humor - your kid spills his juice, gets cranky, you miss a show. Such is life. Get over it. 8. Complain that noone told you to fill out/print your documents - Who is going on the cruise? You, right? Noone else is responsible for you but you. Read directions. 9. Expect your children to have better manners than what you have taught them. If you act like a whiny complaining complainer, Do Not chastise your kids for doing the same. You taught them this!! 10. Waste time standing in line for collectible trinkets - The economy is tanking, you've clipped coupons to get here, do you really need seventeen collectible keychains made in China?
