Thanks for the inside view cruise dad!
I'm sure your daughter is no where near the nightmare the glory's costume person was, and that is the difference. In this case,ALL I did was ask not to wear the wig and she said Carnival forces you to, she labled me a DIVA in front of the other ladies (who all said was unfair) and then I caught her griping about it to another dancer! I paid a lot of money for that cruise and I didn't need that! It was supposed to be fun. The least they should do is tell you what all is invovled when you try out, then you don't waste anyone's time. You're right, I think it'll be RCC or Princess next time. Not just for this reason - there were just too many bad things on this cruise to leave a bad Carnival taste. The more serious was the teen club mgr letting the kids play physical truth or dare AND calling them "gay" if you don't dance or join in whatever activity they are doing. This was not hearsay either, I actually heard the guy do both. The talent show was just the straw that broke the carnival camel's back for me
But again, I'm sure your daughter doesn't conduct herself in either of the ways these two carnival employees did!
