We all know someone who no matter what is never happy. The one who complains about the food services, about the pool being too cold, about the weather, and of course about the comfort of the mattress! Chances are there maybe someone on your cruise like this. It could even be the person you are with!
So what do you do to make sure your vacation is not ruined by another?
- Set boundaries. Especially if this person is in your party. There is no rule that says you must be together 24/7.
- Be understanding, to a point. Many times you do not know what the person is dealing with in their personal life. However, you do not have to be understanding to the point you feel your good time is being soured.
- If this person is at your dinner table, asked to be moved. It’s ok and completely in your right to ask to be moved to another table.
- It’s your vacation, make the most of it! Someone is complaining about something stupid? (Wrong kind of ketchup!?) Make an inside joke out of it. Trust me, when you are telling stories about this later you will be laughing.
