I do not think people should save chairs, it's the rule, follow it. What makes me mad is when people steal the towels. I went to go grab lunch for a half hour, came back and someone stole my towel along with 2 other people's towels I was with.
Just a little FYI for people who have not been on carnival before. If you lose your towel or if osmeone steals your towel, you get charged for it, unless it is found.... yea good luck finding your towel that looks just like everyone elses towel.

I remember there was a statement in the Capers paper that asked the passengers not to save chairs-anywhere!

It amazes me that people can go on a cruise and still be so rude and inconsiderate of others. How do these people feel when they go to the pool and find that someone else is saving the chairs. I guess they don't understand that others feel the same way. Even if you leave for 30 minutes or so for lunch or to change or any other reason the fact still remains that you are "leaving" take your towel and belongings and there would be no problems in the pool area

I think that is the reasoning behind charging for lost towels. Don't leave it on a chair to save. If you go to lunch you have left the area. You are saving a chair. What makes it different than leaving for anything else?

Oh, so YOU'RE the one!

Just kidding, that's kind of funny actually, hope you can add to the collection. 30 minutes is flagrant, but "holding" seats for 5 minutes or so like Chuck mentioned should be OK provided the people will be right back. But I guess you have to draw the line somewhere.

Mr O.. You need to figure out a way to auction the towels back to those that lose them. Seems to me that you could make some extra Casino cash by selling those $25 towels back to those that lose them for a bargin price of $10....

This seems to be a big problem and kinda a negative for the ships. I also had problems finding a chair I went with a group of 11 and even though it would have been nice to get chairs together it was not possible even though our group usually split up. And the savers act as if you are going to kill the first born if you want to sit down. My suggestion to the cruise ship would to be supply more cahirs where ever possible. I acutally found a cosy place that had several deck chairs and not alot of people. The problem was it was off the lobby doors where you first enter the ship. No sun for the tanners but perfect for a fair skinned red head. All in all I agree with Penny that it has became a "ME" society.
