I have come to the conclusion that there are three types of drunk people.
1.) Fun drunk people: These people become more outgoing and fun to be around when they are drunk.
2.) Funny drunk people: These people can have the qualities of the first type, but they go to far and end up making them selves look stupid, much to the enjoyment of those around them.
3.) Annoying drunk people: These people make up 98.3% of the people on cruise ships. They yell and sing in obnoxious voices and break things. They talk to people they don’t know and make them feel uncomfortable, and they usually have shrunken faces and/or awkwardly shaped bodies.
Almost every person on our ship was drunk by the time we left port. I am convinced that the only way to avoid being pestered by these individuals is to become intoxicated yourself, therefor bringing yourself to their level. Of course this is not possible for me since I am… underaged.
Another thing I have noticed is that there are an alarming number of obese children waddling around. Some of them have healthy parents, but most seem to be not-so-mini versions of their parents. It’s really quite sad if you think about it. They say that alcoholism runs in the genes, so I suppose it isn’t too farfetched to say that eating too much could be genetic.
Before anyone yells at me and complains that some people can’t help being overweight, I think you should look at the five plates of food in front of these people before you judge me.
I would also like to talk about the amount of food that is wasted aboard a cruise ship.
I admit that I have been guilty in the past of wasting food, but I have been struck by just how much food is actually thrown out.
I have seen people make two or three plates and eat only one thing off of each plate, and then throw it all away. Some of the people living and working on these ships come from countries that would do anything to get their hands on the leftover food. It must be hard for them to watch all of these fat Americans wasting that much food.
