On our first cruise last October on the WonderDH and I wanted to get our picture taken by the Ariel statue on either formal or sem-fomal night. An older gentleman and his apparently plastic wife set up their tripod and shooed everyone away for the whole half hour we had before dinner attempting to get the perfect picture. We couldn't even get near the statue without him shooing us away never mind actually getting a picture there while dressed up!

The beast was exposing himself? Does Belle know about this?

On our last cruise we were at the Mickey pool and a little boy just stood up pulled his #@$# out and peed right in the pool. I never get in the pools.

On our first DCL cruise, a 4 day Bahamian, we had signed up for the Blackbeard Cay Stingray excursion.

The boat we took to get to Blackbeard Cay was shared by DCL families as well as people from the other ship that was docked that day, a Carnival cruise ship.

The ride there was fine. The ride back was nothing less than X-rated as two of the women from the Carnival group decided to take off their bathing suit tops and flash the Bahamian construction guys that were working on sites we cruised past to get back to the port. They were dancing around and whooping it up topless while their boyfriends/husband's looked on enjoying the show.

The fact that there were a ton of little kids around (my own two included) as well as some teenagers seemed to mean nothing to them. Perhaps this group was just a very bad example, but it left me with the thought that I would never take my kids on a Carnival cruise ever. Party Boat indeed!

Eeeew! I would have declared them hoes The same thing happened to us as we were eating at FishLips in Port Canaveral. We were outside with other families and these hoes went by on a pink boat(Il like their boat)and flashed us all. My DH totally missed it , He was to into his plate of food. Unfortunately my 9and 4yr old saw it.

I find it very sad so many of you think breastfeeding an infant is categorized as "totally shocking" and warrants being in this thread.

Our confused American culture has isolated breasts to the category of "sexual symbol", when in actuality, breasts are for feeding babies. Is it ok with you that we flaunt breasts during primetime television broadcasts, in beer ads, to sell alcohol, lingerie, perfume, and for many other products that aren't even related to them? I assume you aren't hiding your eyes (or the eyes of your children) from every ad that uses breasts to sell a product. I take no issue with breasts being sexual, but more importantly, they need to be seen as nurturing and life-sustaining.

Far from "protecting" children from seeing breasts used for their biologically normal function, research suggests that it is helpful for children and young adults to see breastfeeding as a normal activity and to allow them to develop an everyday language for talking about how babies are fed.

The outdated notion that breastfeeding is something that should be hidden away contradicts international public health messages, which encourage mothers to breastfeed exclusively for six months, with continued breastfeeding up to two years and beyond.

I mean, even in Saudi Arabia, women openly breastfeed their children even though they wear a full veil! All across Europe it is totally normal and natural to see breastfeeding infants.

I just find it very sad when a mother is in public and she needs to use for their primary purpose, that other people feel they must push their very sexual and immature view of breastfeeding on her. She is doing nothing sexual. She’s just feeding her baby. I don’t know any women who breastfeed to draw attention to themselves or say “Hey look at me! Look at my breasts!” She is just doing one of the most natural things in the world, that has been done since the dawn of man: feeding her child.

I understand it is natural for a woman to breastfeed an infant and do not see the need to run to the room or bathroom to feed the child, I also do not think a little discretion is unreasonable. I am not saying to cover the child, but a slight turn of the chair does wonders. Young kids are naturally curious, a 5 y/o is going to ask questions. In the middle of the mall, at a restaurant, or on vacation is not my ideal place to give a child a crash course on breastfeeding. I do, however, think a 4 or 5 year old still breastfeeding is inappropriate, no matter where this is occurring. Those are just my opinions. Everyone has one. But as someone else posted... no need to debate breastfeeding.. just keep the good stories coming!

My family and I, along with my grandma and grandpa, went on our first cruise on the Wonder this past Feb/March. I'm known for talking and doing really odd things in my sleep, such as yelling for help while camping and thinking something is happening when it really isn't. It was our third night on the ship and we were all sleeping and I was dreaming (I can't remember what it was), but I found myself in the hallway and locked out of my room at 1:30AM! I was awake just enough to know that I was walking around, but couldn't do anything about it. Just as the door latched I thought, "Oh, darn! Why did I just do that?" So I went up to Guest Services and got a new KTTW card. Luckily, the guy there didn't ask any questions, but I wonder what he thought, since I was in my pajamas and all. lol! My family all got a good laugh about it when I told them in the morning.

Now that would be annoying I know on the cruises I've been on they usually had the cruise photographers there on most nights to take picture. If I were you I would have gone over to guest services or find an officer to ask them to allow other people some time to get pictures too.

And sometimes he thought he was still hungry after 2 pieces of pizza from the children's menus and his second order went to waste.

\A few times, I got adventuresome and ordered something I wouldn't normally eat, just to try it......it went back. And of course, I sent back anything that was cold whenit was supposed to be hot.....like several of my meals on the Wonder to Hawaii. Oh well, that's the way it goes sometimes.
