    I really can't think of any rules I would like changed on Disney.

    As a non-smoker, a smoke free ship certainly would be nice, however I think Disney's smoking policy is well balanced.
    The reality is, smoke free cruise ships have been tried and failed. And Disney's core audience, those age 18 to 40, are the fastest growing group of smokers in decades. Like tattoos, smoking is becoming fashionable again.

    The issue came up last year on my Alaskan cruise on HAL. Spoke to a nice Eastern European family who honored the smoking restrictions, but said, such restrictions would be unthinkable.
    And remember, cruise ships operate in an international community, and purposely flag their ships in nations other than the U.S. to get around U.S laws.

    Yes in Seattle that is true. But the new smokers aren't generally smoking tobacco. The state officials here are busy hiring people to open state stores to sell cannabis. Not sure Disney is ever going to let you smoke cannabis on board.

    In ADDITION to the no saving lounger rule: Someone with a tshirt that says "POOL MONITOR" or "CHAIR HOG MONITOR" that only has that one responsibility. Monitor chair hogs. Complete with a clip board, stop watch around the neck, a whistle and a digital camera - time stamped.

    Okay, maybe not the whistle. :cool1:

    Where do they draw the line? As soon as your 16 year old is allowed at adult activities, someone will want to bring their 15 year old daughter --- and her very mature 13 year old sister. At that point, you no longer have adult activities, which are nice for those looking to enjoy some time not, as you put it, "overrun by packs of teenagers."

    Wow. Judgmental?

    Could not agree more. If DCL enforced the rules they have, some call them "guidelines" when they don't want to obey them, we would see far less threads like can my 17 yo get into the adult specialty dinning, can I wear shorts in the MDR, can my child swim in the adult pool if no one is around...:sad2:

    I'm the OP. I think the tattoo/piercing people are just causing trouble, so I'll ignore them. I can see both sides of the smoking debate, but that's something I hadn't thought of. Thanks for the replies.

    I've decided the rule I'd like change is to enforce the rules!! Have whatever ones you want, just make everybody play by them instead of penalizing the conscientious. That's totally my pet peeve! For example, I wouldn't mind at all that people wear shorts to dinner if I could, too. I can't help it, I just follow the rules. :rotfl2:

    I agree that's probably the reason. But one can dream...how wonderful it would be to "show off" your ship!

    Hmmm, There is probably something "wrong" or something that someone else doesn't like with just about every person alive....So you ALL stay home and only one person/family is allowed to cruise at a time so as not to offend anyone else, heck there are probably some people who don't like everything about all the members of their families - SO.......
    ONLY ONE PERSON PER CRUISE PLEASE!!!!! :goodvibes That way no one will be offended and only the "perfect" person will be visible.
    I hope that perfect person never gets old, never gains weight, never has medical problems, never turns gray, never looses their eyesight, and never has a bad habit, otherwise they won't be able to stand themselves.
    AND that one person follows all of the rules weither or not they pertain to that person, because they are the rules.

    Disney CMs that are seen by guests are required to cover up their tattoos. Disney also has rules about visible piercings. The OP asked about rules we would like changed on the DCL, I answered.

    I would like to see them eliminate the requirement for each cabin having two adults.
    I have a family of 6 and have to get 2 cabins. I wish I could pay for what I have two adults, 17, 15, 12 and 9.

    Tattoos today, people with big noses tomorrow, people overweight the following, people with brown hair after that, people of color following that.
    Soon it will be a blonde hair blue eye white in shape only cruise.

    Stop focusing on others focus on yourself and your family and you'll have a great cruise.

    I don't think the cabins hold more than 5.

    The cabins do only handle 5. So if you have 6 you have to get two cabins.
    Then you have to pay for 4 adults and two kids.
    What I was saying I wish you could pay for 2 adults and 4 kids.
