Number 2...

Just off the Magic, last cruise from PC...sad to say...

Anyhow...

Our family of 4, standing outside AP and overheard one CM say loudly to another...[Heavily accented]

"Dodie, I have to go to the bathroom....I'll be right back...it's a number 2!"

We couldn't stop laughing the rest of the evening...

On our Dream cruise last year, we were checking for our bags outside our room on the first day and were inturrupted by a loud ruckus. It was the lady two doors down screaming at her children about what a 'good for nothing piece of....." their father was and many other expletives. Since my luggage wasn't there and they obviously had some personal issue, I went back into the stateroom. When I checked a little later for the luggage, she was still outside screaming, but this time at her husband who hurled some expletives back at her and stomped down the hall. These were not the sort I expected on a Disney Cruise.

Skip to the first dinner and who is sitting at the table next to us -- yes, it's the woman and her family and she is still very upset at the husband. I probably wouldn't have recognized her if not for the very distinctive tattoos and unusual hair color. But it was interesting watching the couple when they did come to dinner on some of the nights.

On a happy, unexpected note..... I had to dry some laundry and of course, remembered this at about 2 am. I bolted out of the bed and ran to the laundry room...who should saunter in but Goofy in a nightshirt and night cap with a handler. Goofy and I 'chatted' for a while, he took a snooze on the ironing board and then he left. I didn't have my camera, but I would have loved a picture of that!

On our January cruise we were waiting to board a tender boat to go to St. Thomas. A boy in front of us was boarding the tender when it began drifting away from the ship. The boy had one foot on the ship and one on the tender, then he fell into the water between the two and hit his chin on the boat on the way down. They pulled him up out of the water and took him to get stitches.

Gangway Collapse

We were on the Disney Wonder in December of 2008 when the gangway collapsed during a violent storm at the port. Luckily no one was crossing at the time. The remaining passengers had to be picked up at another location at the port.

What? No cover at all? I bet you made sure you covered your face up before drinking your coffee....you know better I assume?!

Any place is proper to nurse a child..... You see more ****s lounging in a bathing suit at the pool......

And like a previous poster, I'm not bothered by too much, as I work for the fire department and if I haven't seen it, I've heard about it....but anyway, one morning we rush up on deck to find TTF already at the pool. So, I snap when I see the tables and chairs saved, AGAIN, this is about the 2nd or 3rd morning of the cruise. I politely move their stuff from one table (and yes it was their stuff...I'd seen it all week) to the railing behind the tables. Other people came up and did the same thing, as TTF were all lounging by the pool in the chaise lounges.

Soon I see all the kids, who are coming down the Mickey slide, come down the slide, then stop and stare over to where these people are lounging. So, along with one or two other Moms, I walk around the pool to see what all the kids are staring at. One of the TTF young ladies was hugely pregnant(I know she was past the required time to be cruising) but, and she is laying in the chaise, with her naked belly exposed to the sun. One of the Moms goes and grabs her son by the arm and storms over to the CM on duty at the pool. Well, the pegnant lady was evidentially not happy when the CM came over and asked her to cover herself up. So, she gets up, pulls her swimsuit top down and stops in her tracks, when she discovers that all the tables and chairs are now occupied by other people!!! So, then all of them get up, get their stuff together, which takes about 20 minutes and stomp off!!!! I don't know what she was the most shocked about...the fact that they asked her to cover up or that people had taken the tables!!!!! Anyway, we never saw them at the pool again.

I get moving peoples stuff if they are try to "save" chairs but I don't understand why a CM would tell a pregnant woman that her belly had to be covered. There is no rule that women/girls must be in a one piece.

Personally, I wouldn't wear a two piece that exposed my middle but if I did and a CM or a guest asked me to cover it, I would tell them to go scratch.

The OP never said anything about beasts being exposed, just a belly. I have "tank-ini's" that I could if I wanted to pull the belly part up not show anything above it.

Do you put a blanket over your head when you eat?

This person's breast was completely uncovered, leaving NOTHING to the imagination. As if it makes a difference (and I might be flamed for saying this) .... it was not very shapely or cute. If she had been discrete it would not have made any difference at all.

I want to say that I applaud women who give the extra effort to breastfeed. My wife did not have the opportunity because of medical reasons and she believes that she missed out on the bonding.
What was the point of that statement? That firm and well shaped breast are tolerable to look at for the purpose of breast feeding but "saggy udders" are not?

While making the comment he was not waiting in that line and rushing his family onto the shuttle. I had to doctor my DS then 9 because he knees were bloody.
You and your spouse must have tremendous restraint, because if someone knock my child to the ground and cause them to bleed and didn't apologize, never mind they were jumping the que, the police/sheriff would need to be called and I or my DH would be the ones who ended up leaving in hand cuffs.
