TripAdvisor also reports that 37 percent of those surveyed believe there should be a 30 minute limit on saved seats. And, now hospitality execs are starting to listen.
Recently, Carnival and Norwegian cruise lines have enacted test policies on saving pool seats. The Norwegian Star is asking guests not to be away for longer than 45 minutes and is using a dot system to track absences. Meantime, the Carnival Breeze will place a warning note with the time on chairs with stuff and no bodies. If 40 minutes goes by and there is still no guest, they'll take the stuff and hold it at the towel station. Works for us.
Do you think hotels should do the same here in Vegas where seats disappear as soon as gates open? Sound off in the comments below!
