In November we took a RCCL cruise in a Concierge suite, which had upgraded balcony furniture. We came back from the safety drill to find the man from the next cabin trying to drag our lounger across the wall between our balconies. I went all "mean mother" mode on him (which I didn't even realize I had modes) and told him he'd better put our furniture back. Apparently I snapped and wagged my finger quite a bit, and he got to jumping to obey.

Wow...balcony furniture must be really important to him. Unbelievable.

Parents and their childrens bathroom habbits amaze me! Just off the Magic 8-day. I was lounging by the Googy pool with my 3 children swimming and I see this little girl 8-9 talking with a what I assume was the mom accross the pool at the tables. The next thing I know she goes in the shower, pulls her swimsuit to the side and pees in the shower! Then when she was done gave a thumbs up to the mother still sitting in the chairs behind the shower. Who instructs their child to do this stuff? There are 2 bathrooms close by this pool.

Sounds like the Carnival crowd has jumped to DCL.

Not see, but hear. On an October 2009 Magic cruise, our stateroom was located next to an extremely loud family. Constantly screaming at each other. I heard the father yelling one day, and then he slammed something in the room so violently that the wall shook and my head bounced off the headboard where I was resting it. The next morning, I heard the father screaming at one of the children followed very clearly by a loud smack to the child that I could hear through the wall.

Families have arguments, of course, but this went on for days. It was clear the Dad was abusive, both physically and verbally. I felt awful for the children in that family.

Did you contact guest services about that?

3 Carnival cruises and never seen anything like that.
Except the yelling. At 2am. Right outside our cabin. It sure was a Fun Ship.

Not shocking but a little unexpected

I sailed on the Magic last November. My DGS (3) was given some colors and the kid's menu to color on. He began to color on the tablecloth. His parents (my DD and DSiL) immediately told him not to do that. Our server told us it was ok to color on the tablecloth and proceeded to draw a picture for DGS. Each night DGS would color on the tablecloth. The other family at our table also has a son around 3 or 4 years old. The mom did not want him coloring on the tablecloth. She didn't want him to think he could do that at home, which I totally understand. The dad, however, allowed him to do it and even joined in. He got a few dirty looks from his wife. However, by the final night of the cruise she was coloring on the tablecloth. I looked at her and said, in my "mom" voice (jokingly), "Are you coloring on the tablecloth?" To which she responded, "Yes, I have been pulled to the dark side!"

A Man Hanging up His Laundry in the Sauna

So, I read all the posting and absolutely loved this thread!

My DH wanted me to relay his story...

On our MedCruise 2010 (won't reveal a specific one), we traveled with another family who we're good friends.

My DH and my friend's DH went to the "sauna" to relax. A man joined into the Sauna and decided to strip and hang up his clothing (yes... clothing including undergarment) on the rest of the open space.

Both the DHs looked dumbfounded. Then, disgust set in. So, they both left.

I remember that story when my DH reminded me the other night.

I keep thinking HOW DISGUSTING!?!

Hehe. I totally get that, except ours was on Sunday. I think that dock has no lovers of it...we are happy to leave it and sad to come back to it... (tongue in cheek of course, I actually really like checking into that port... but we all hate checking out...
