I was reading up on some cruise reviews. I seem to notice one of the biggest problems on a cruise occurs on the pool deck. It seems that there is always a shortage of chairs; whether caused by more guests than chairs; or by some guests "saving" chairs.

So, I wonder if I can bring my own collapsable chair with me on my cruise, and use it around the pooldeck (or above)? That way, there will always be a chair available for me. Or do you think the crew will disapprove and not allow it?

You know what Frase, not a bad idea. I don't see where that would be a problem. You can bring as many bags on a ship that you want, why not a lounge chair??? Excellent idea. I dare any idiot who feels compelled to save chairs to save my personal chair. Allow me to vent...

PEOPLE STOP SAVING CHAIRS!!!!!!!!!

During the day most people leave the ship, you shouldn't have any trouble finding a chair unless it is a day at sea. Even during the evening, chairs should be available, half the guests are eating at one time.

Bringing your own chair would seem to be more of a hassle than trying to find one on deck during a day at sea. It would take almost a whole suitcase just for one folding chair.

And if you bring your own, you miss out on the fun of taking a "saved chair". Or you miss out on a lot of free beach towels.

The airlines are only disallowing liquids, so I say, why not. If you're driving to the port, it's even better. We have some folding chairs that have their own carrying pouch, so it could be another carry-on or packed easily in our checked luggage. Best wishes!

I like your chair idea. I don't like create a big deal about chairs when I go to the pool deck but I really have a problem with people who save chairs.

If you think you can go at a later time or just wait for a chair you really don't understand the issue.

They make a lot of small light folding chairs. Good luck - Please let us know how this works for you.

I cannot see anything bad about bringing a chair onboard, as long as you are contacting the Cruise Company first

The way cruise lines are today, they'll confiscate it and return it at the end of the cruise.
