Apr 3rd 2007 11:06PM Let me start with that I am 33 years old and I have done 24 cruises in the last 10 years with my Husband. It is near impossible to fall over board. You have to be acting like a total ass in order to go over. For example we saw someone in 1997 having sex on the balcony which is not recommended, (People can see you). I have and do my share of drinking, and we all know when enough is enough. But I have seen it my self where some of these parents take their "KIDS" that just graduated collage in large groups on the ships and have their own staff members available to them where they just drink from the time they get up to the time they go to bed. We where a little on the noisy side and asked the father how much he had spent so far and we where told in 3 days his bar bill was almost 2,000.00 sorry but that is like 14 beers in a 12 hr time frame. Yes it was a large group, but they should of been cut off at least for a time period. The cruise ships should come up with a way to see how much an individual is ordering in either a time frame or quantity, but they should have a limit on it. I definitely agree that if someone goes over for being a ASS they should have to pay the rescue. Their are times when things happen that you cant prevent, the first cruise I was on someone had to be airlifted out for having a baby early, and their was the time we had to have the boat re routed because some idiot decided to rent a wave runner (the ships don't recommend it if it's not booked through them) but they decided to go on land where the drinking age is 18 and got loaded and got on the wave runner, and crashed into coral, and they had to be lifted out due to injuries, and we lost a day at an island which sucked.
