I am a huge supporter of free condoms. But seeing as a PP talked about accidentally walking into crew first aid and seeing a huge bowl of them out, like an RA's dorm room, getting them from guests does not appear to be necessary.

We had a unexpected moment when we where on the Magic. We were in the elevator and it stopped on another floor to let more people in and sure enough it was Chip and Dale! So me and my kids got to enjoy an elevator ride with the cutest chipmunks ever

One my first cruise ever (The Big Red Boat i was around 10) we were seated at dinner with a family whose son i guess got sick and rather than take him back to the stateroom and let him change clothes they brought him to dinner with well vomit all over his shirt i have a strong stomach but even i had problems eating that night and of course i had to sit next to him.

My dad on the last night of one of the cruises with out us (me, 2 DB's) i believe it was the Carnival Fantasy he was putting the luggage out and they had run into slightly higher than usual seas well he got flung out of the door (which closed behind him and locked) on to the other side of the hall way in his tighty whites and my step mom was fast asleep. She and the rest of our family thought it was hilarious but my dad not so much.

I think on our last cruise, WE may have been the something shocking for some passengers.
The whole situation actually started on our first cruise, in 2011 on the Wonder. Two things happened- On pirate night and on Parrot Cay menu night, we realized that I am allergic to nearly all of the dishes available because of the spices added. Rather boring, but it set us up for our 'shocking' cruise the next year. The other plain Jane thing that contributed was that we had an AWESOME Palo server.
Now, fast forward 12 months. We had requested our same server for the MDR as our last cruise, and the same Palo server as well. Once boarding we found out our requested MDR server had left that day for vacation. Oh well. But to appease us, our family had a table alone.
The first night in the MDR our head server came over and told us that because I would miss out on 2 menus, it would be his pleasure to arrange his own surprise menu for us each night. Okay.... Cool. The next morning we went to Palo. Our former Palo server Vladimir had been promoted to officer, so he couldn't be our server. But they called him down, and so as we had brunch, this officer in his crisp white uniform comes down to see us, big hugs all around, brings us 'special' stuff from the kitchen. Unbeknownst to us, 2 tables from near us in the MDR were also having brunch, so now they had witnessed our special treatment the night before and now this morning. Every night in our MDR we had special service from the head server AND our former Palo server would stop in and chat, pull up a chair or bring us something special. The 2nd to last night we had dinner in Palo and our server sent back chocolate soufflés for the kids- and yep, one of those same families was there to see it. Also, because of his position as training officer, he was often just watching the wait staff- so we would often walk with him or chat during the day and yep, it looked like we had a special officer guide!!
I had no idea how all of this must look until at the Pirate party that night! Both families came up to us and asked WHO we were to get so much special attention!! They thought we were very rich or influential. Ummmm- nope. I don't think they believed us- because on the last night we somehow managed to get an awesome spot for the character parade where a member of the cruise staff made sure our daughter first got pictures with everyone. And yep- the same families were there to see it!
Trust me- we did nothing to demand this service, but we did enjoy it!!

You're comment made me think of Thomas Kinkade. We were on DCL cruise right after his death and they were sure hawking his "art". Enjoy the following story:

There was an elderly lady on our recent cruise who pushed around two teddy bears in a double stroller the whole time. We saw her in Grand Cayman, at Senor Frogs in Costa Maya where the teddy bears were getting shots from the waitress, and pushing the stroller on Castaway Cay.

Shocking & unexpected? Hmmm...

I'd have to say it was when just dh & I cruised a 3nt. on the Dream not long after its maiden voyage. Our OBC covered our gratuity + some extra for our MDR servers who were awesome.
It was so nice to just BE on the ship, exploring it all so new, we didn't even spend anything extra!
I doubt I'll ever see a bill like that again!

I remember there was a post here...it may even be in this thread...about the reborn babies on the Disney Dream.

I can't copy and paste on this computer but if you go to youtube...type in "Reborn Disney Cruise Part 1". Dang, they look real! I probably wouldn't have noticed.

Uhm....so I'm trying really hard not to be judgmental and to each his/her own,

These reborn things are kind of creepy. They're giving me the willies.

Yes. I didn't understand it at first but after seeing those videos on you tube I realized they are a hobby. As long as they are not chair hogs. LOL

bahahahaaa!!!!! I'm glad I rented our CC tubes ahead of time (If I kick one of those off my floatie, will I get busted for child abuse or vandalism??). What would they do? Call me immature (uh, they're playing with a doll).

Honestly, I pray somebody with one of those does not end up sitting next to me at dinner. I'm liable to jump ten feet up in the air and accidentally throw my Mickey and Minnie silverware out the portholes trying to revive the little sucker.
