I have seen this posted a few times, but didn't pay attention because our cruise was so far away. Now we are just about 45 days away and I want to know what all of you do about this topic... I am planning to be bold and take over a lounge chair at the mickey pool on this next cruise. Last time I had to stand and watch DD because of course all the chairs were taken. I saw tons of chairs with towels and no one using them. So.... how do I go about taking one? How long do you leave it empty before "stealing" it? 10-15 minutes? what tactics do you use? My parents are gonig to be cruising with us and two 70 year old people shouldn't have to stand for an hour in the sun because someone is taking over 5 chairs that they won't even use. Thanks for the advice...hope I am not !!!!!
