Skift Take

Either Carnival views chair hogging as a serious cruise faux pas irritating their customers, or they’ve created a clever way to build a buzz about their newest ship, Carnival Breeze, where the program will be tested.

In truth, the practice of bagging the best-placed sunloungers on ships is a long-standing issue, not one reserved to our German cousins and it is the all-American line Carnival Cruise Lines that has brought in a new policy to stamp out the behaviour.

The Facebook page of John Heald, the popular cruise director of the operator’s newest ship Carnival Breeze, sets out the new policy and has attracted more than 700 likes from supporters of the move.
