On our cruise last month, we saw a lady who had Barbie dolls that she'd pose in different outfits around the ship and photograph. And on a couple of occasions we've seen people (adults) who have a Duffy the Disney bear that they take with them to dinner and the shows, etc. in different outfits.

But the strangest thing has to have been when we were on the Dream last August, there was a lady who wore a headband with Pluto ears everywhere she went, carried a stuffed Pluto and also wore Pluto t-shirts every time we saw her. She also carried a large plastic bone which we wondered what it was for, until she was ahead of us in the character greeting line for Pluto and was using it to "tease" Pluto. Even my kids were speechless.

I wonder if the adoration from small children makes up for this type of disturbing behavior from adults. Poor CMs.

On the Dream two weeks ago (got off the 2nd) Capt. Gus was giving his midday announcements and went into some great detail as to why he was sorry to report that the Mickey pool was temporarily closed for cleaning. He reminded the kids to not eat "too much hot dogs and ice cream" and to "take regular bathroom breaks--not in the pool!" It was rather entertaining...

On a recent Carnival cruise I was sitting at the bar in the atrium watching the glass elevators. I saw a guy wearing a robe get on one of the elevators with three ladies (who I hope were with him!). As the elevator went up, he turned his back to the lobby, threw open his robe toward the ladies and shook...himself...in time with the music playing in the atrium. No idea if he was wearing anything underneath but it was pretty funny to watch.

If that's the worst you've ever seen...

To be fair, while I personally think things like spandex & thongs are privileges, not rights, I really don't have a problem with someone who's way more comfortable in their skin than I am in mine wearing whatever they feel comfortable in. Even if I don't really like how it looks...

We just got off the Fantasy and were hanging out on Satellite Falls on one of the sea days (for those of you who may not know, it's an adults-only section on deck 12 (13?) on the very forward of the ship). A man and woman with probably a 6 year old girl came walking through and one of the drink servers mentioned to them that it was adults only. The woman said that they just wanted to walk the girl past the scenery at the front of the boat and would leave and the server said ok... Ten minutes later, they were still hanging out there. Another server came by and asked them to leave. This time, the man got upset, raising his voice and waving his arms. He spent about 5 minutes yelling at the server for asking them to leave... even though it was clearly an adults only section and they had been hanging out there for far longer than just to show their daughter the view. They did finally leave once the man stopped yelling.

We were telling the story to one of the bartenders that night and she said she had been at Currents, the bar beside the adults-only pool, and a similar thing had happened, but when the man was asked to leave, he swore up and down that Guest Services had given him permission to have his child in the adults pool. They ended up having to get the Guest Services Manager come up and tell the man that they couldn't be there.

We compared descriptions of the men and they were definitely two different people.

Amazing how some people think they're so special that the rules don't apply to them.
