I was quite put off by the Hard Sell at the spa and throughout the ship. Though I think this is typical of the Curies industry. Thankfully it doesnít carry over from DCL to WDW.
The push to purchase future cruises was harder than many timeshare pitches Iíve witnessed. And speaking of timeshare, even DVC pitches are harder at sea than on land. They are taking full advantage of the captive audiences.
The other hard sell that I found off putting was the Personal Shopper. On the surface it appears like she is trying to offer you a valuable service, but its easy to see through her sepal, and that she is desperate for the commissions that can only be generated if she gets you into some of the unscrupulous shops in Nassau.
At least DCL wasnít pushing art, gold by the foot, cheep jewelry, or liquor from it on-board stores. The downside is there were no free tasting parities.
