So how do you deal with someone who insults you in public when on a cruise ? An example....you are a nervous young couple on your first cruise and a coulple of big louts come over whenever they see you slap you hard on the back and say things in a loud voice like " Hey whos yer barber ...god I'd be embarrassed walking around like that and with all those spots!"...or you are abit overweight and bulging out abit and a group whenever they see you make loud rude remarks about your weight,size ,looks.
This sort of thing can ruin your cruise and you'd want to hid in your cabin or be constantly looking over your shoulder.
Or perhaps you do answer someone back and then they and their family/friends start laying into you....not physically but with words.
All this seems highly unlikely but with cruising being more & more popular...you are bound to get some of the more unpleasant sorts who like to be bullies being on the cruise your on and then.....god help you
