We set sail in less than one week and now my pessimistic DH says that he is "skeptical" and "wary" about how fun this cruise is going to be. Mostly, he is worried about crowds. He doesn't want to feel like he has to rush anywhere and he is afraid that there is always going to be this mad rush to get seats at the theater, lounges at the pool, chairs at Castaway, etc. You get the picture? We went to Sandals several years ago and it always felt like you had to get up at the crack of dawn if you wanted to use a floating lounge. People would grab them in the morning and hoard them all day...even pulling them out of the pool when they wanted to lay in the sun . So, is there anything I can do or say to help allay his fears? He knows the deck parties will be crowded (that isn't a big deal), but I think he is hoping for a relaxing vacation without a whole lot of "I paid a ton of money for this cruise, I can do what I want" attitudes from fellow cruisers. Thanks for sharing your experiences!
