Mine would have to be those who hog chairs with towels and then you
see the towels sitting on empty chairs throughout the day. As far as
I am concerned if you aren't in the chair for about 15 minutes or no
family member is right there the chairs are fair game. What do you
guys think?

Probably...

People who light up cigarettes right next to you while on the non-smoking
side of the ship.

People who are very loud in the cabins next to yours.

My biggest pet peeve is small children in the hot tubs. My second
biggest pet peeve is art auction stuff from that rip-off all over the
public areas.

Amen to that. Despite the big signs that say "Adult Only." And
there's usually at least three deck crew members standing by
the hot tub oblivious to the goings on..

Non-smoking people in the smoking areas asking me to NOT smoke.
There are far more non-smoking areas than smoking.

Usually unattended and they think it's a pool ...

I agree it's a rip-off ... but we do enjoy walking through the
displays ... On our last Carnival cruise (Freedom) ... they actually
had the display quite isolated ...
on the previous one (Triumph) ... you actually could not walk up and
down the ship without going through gyrations with blocked
aisleways ...

On most other cruises it was barely noticeable ...

How about the photographers set up all over the ship. The set-ups and the
lines waiting to have their pictures done block the flow of traffic. This
is particularly bad when a person is in a wheelchair.
