Did you have a "WHAT ?" experience on your Disney Cruise ...
 
Returning to the DIS boards after having just booked a return trip to the Fantasy makes me realize how much fun it is to plan a Disney experience. Thinking back on our B2B cruises in Sept/Oct last year, three "anecdotes" kind of stood out for us ...
  • My wife who requires a cane was walking back to our stateroom I was a few feet behind. A family was walking towards us the two young kids in front stopped and stood to the side to let my wife pass apparently the mother said to her kids as she was coming up behind them, "You don't have to wait, you're just as important as she is" ... :sad2:
  • We were in line to enter the Walt Disney Theatre for the Muster Drill when a couple exited the "staff area" near the front of the line and stood up front. My DW commented that there was a line ... the wife started having a conniption stating that staff had told them to go through the staff stairs and she didn't know there was a line and so on ... she started to head towards the back of the line when THE husband spoke up and said "Come back here, you don't have to listen to her" and they proceeded to interject themselves in front of the others who had been waiting and entered the Theatre. :worship:
Sometimes it's not the youth of our society that we have to be worried about ... :rolleyes2

But in amongst all the funny moments we did have was this one in particular ...
  • We were waiting for our transportation that we hired for our trip back to Orlando when we struck up a conversation with a family. When my DW mentioned we had just finished a B2B, had spent a week at WDW prior and we were just on our way to a week at Universal, the mother commented on how expensive it was for us. My wife said No, that we had planned carefully and it did not cost as much as she thought we had spent. It was at then that a driver came up and after confirming who we were pointed us to our "ride" a super-stretch Limo!! I was speechless for a second ...I must have had a dumbfounded look on my face as I had rented a large SUV, the same one that took us to PC did I totally mess up? It was then the driver explained that the SUV was in for repairs so they sent the limo instead. :lmao:

So it would be nice to hear if anyone else had a "WHAT" moment on their cruise, funny or not ... :goodvibes

It's incredibly sad and appalling that a mother would say that to her kids and not respect elders and people disabled to any degree small or big. And line jumping uuhhhh terrible. Im sorry that happened. Some people just don't have basic manners & common sense!!

I am so appalled by the words of that woman. What does that say about her? Simply horrible. I hope those kids learn to have the manners they already seem to posses, hopefully it is not sucked out by their parents.

On a more positive note, how amazing about the limo! Congrats! What an incredible surprise! ;)

I just wonder where the kids learnt their manners. Clearly not from their mother....

The people at my job say the same thing about me taking cruises. Why Disney they ask and isn't it expensive. I tell them all the pluses and not if you budget right (for me at least). I have not had a what moment on the ship but plenty at WDW. Some people are just awful.

On our Disney Wonder cruise in Feb. Our 6yr old DGS would be quite excited about the elevator rides. One trip when we arrived a Cruiser was there waiting. When a door opened our Grandson was in a mad rush to enter.

I held him back, explaining to him that, he would have to have a look around when first arriving, to see if others were waiting.

The Cruiser hearing me said that's okay. I explained we were his Grandparents and wished to teach him; She smiled, went on in, then we three followed.

Our Grandson whom is rather shy turned to her and asked, which floor she would like.

We adults now smiling, wished each other a great cruise! :wave2:

That's exactly what I try to do with my kids (4yr son & 17 month daughter) I want them to have manners for strangers and not just family. I'm crossing my fingers in hopes that they act pleasantly on our cruise in September.

We had a lady yelling at the cast members as we were heading to an excursion last week. As we were disembarking for Salsa & Salsa, the CMs mentioned that we could grab towels. Well, the way Salsa & Salsa works is that after the 'show,' you are free to use the resort for about 45 minutes, or you can return to the ship. Well, this lady (a term I use loosely...) was flipping out. "Why do I need a towel? He (the son) doesn't even have a bathing suit on. Why didn't someone tell me?!?" DH tried to calmly explain to her that the resort time was optional, and that she didn't really need a towel. She wouldn't listen. She kept yelling at the CMs. They told her that it was listed in the excursion information. "Well, I didn't book this. Someone else booked it for me. Why isn't it listed on the tickets?" She kept complaining all the way out to the cab. I think that she maybe, possibly ended up enjoying it. I can't say for sure though b/c I carefully maneuvered my family so that we were in a different cab & sat at a different table. :rolleyes1

I am beside myself with excitement over my first DCL cruise and it's not until December of 2014! That being said - I can only hope that I don't encounter rudeness of that kind. It is impossible not to notice that there is a segment of vacationers that feel that the rules of decent society do not apply to them. I see it in the parks all the time. I do say with some pride, however, that I frequently receive comments on how considerate my children are - which in a way is surprising because they are just being decent people. That really should not be the exception ... On vacation or otherwise.
