I was on our verandah as we were docking at Castaway when the passenger in the next cabin came out and leaned over the railing to watch as well. She apparently thought this was a "clothing optional" cruise. I definitely saw more than I expected and she quickly went back into her stateroom when she saw that she was not alone.

I don't know why those videos with the reborns are bothering me so much. It obviously brings her great joy and she isn't harming anyone. Although in my opinion, this behavior would greatly reduce her chances of finding a potential mate to have real children with, so I guess at the age of 22, she could be "harming" her own future (if she does want actual children one day).

Anyway, I can't stop thinking about it and why someone would put all that time, energy, and money into these dolls. All of those real diapers, formula, trash bags for their "dirty" diapers, etc in her diaper bag? My youngest DD is 5 and I am sooooo thankful not to have to worry about packing that stuff anymore (or buying it!).

It seems like she truly believes they are real, but I would have to think that she realizes this isn't "normal" behavior as she made certain that her face, and her mother's, were not on the video.

And I disagree with a PP. Based on the seriousness of the "getting ready" and the elaborate outfits, I am really thinking she DID bring those dolls to dinner.

Love this thread, I've been laughing my way through it!
For us, we were on a 7 night cruise on the Fantasy and a guy has his LITTLE terrier type dog with him throughout the entire cruise and would bring him into the dining room nightly. My parents inquired and they said he was a service dog. Tiniest service dog I'd ever seen (owner didn't appear to have any physical limitations, perhaps mental or cognitive issues??). Was surprised he was permitted to bring the little dog into the dining room nightly. It would sit on his lap as he ate every night. He definitely got a lot of looks during the entire cruise.

You are able to get a service dog certificate for your dog if you can prove that you have anxiety and the dog helps the panic attacks.
"Service dog" has a much larger meaning these days.

I thought the same re disturbing! I am probably being very judgemental here but it does exactly that. Disturbs me! Maybe it's my issue. Me and DW aren't blessed with children but we just adore them. I would have loved a big old family 10 adopted children without current homes. We failed adoption, foster etc because of my health issues ( not because we are same sex couple how times move on lol ) . But I have never been tempted by such behaviour. I just make the most of friends children and nieces and nephews and local children in need. Or see the joy on the faces of children at WDW and the cruise. That makes my vacation magical not some doll.. Oh I am being mean. That poor woman may be in pain...

OMG!! I'm in LOVE!!! I wish they WOULD let people bring them! I would have LOVED it!

Well some dogs are trained to sense seizures etc. And some older people basically live on cruise ships.

I love this idea! It's made my day?!

ps pictures??!

I also love terriers...

Oh how cute I love little dogs. How wonderful he/she has been trained to be a service dog they bring such joy and quality of life to those that have the pleasure of having them :-)

Yes, it's one thing to have a doll collection but to buy & pack all of that real infant stuff takes it above & beyond that "just for fun" level. Real binkies, real toys, real clothes, shampoo, etc. Really, that's all so time consuming. Plus all of the continuous pretending. It gets weird.

She says she took them to the "day care nursery". I wonder what the CMs there thought.

I'm sad for her mother. If that were my grown daughter I'd be crying for her. Not to mention wasting my cruise time to hold a doll & discuss it endlessly on video. I guess she's not married but seriously, what man would put up with all that & still find her attractive (not talking physically). I wonder what a psychologist would think of this.

I saw a TV show called Strange Addictions. A grown woman loved pretending to be a baby. Wore footy pajamas, diapers to bed in a huge crib. She sucked a binky & held her blanky. She's not hurting anyone but surely she'll be forever single.

That's because your dd's diapers were filled with real poo. If she was anything like my boys, at some point you were in a restaurant, grocery store, on a road trip, etc. when it went all up her back, all over the car seat, and 500 wipies later you got to the point when you could just go home, drained, skipping the meal or buying any food. It's just not as glamorous as it looks.

Then took off to the bar, left DH there to cheer on the couples. Came back and turned her chair again - VERY OBVIOUSLY that was sooooo funny - crossed arms and all -refusing to watch the show. I so felt sorry for DH. If he laughed or clapped or enjoyed - she gave the evil eye, and we just cracked up.... it was such a distraction but a distraction that we couldn't help watch and we still to this day do the "cross arm" action when we pout and kid each other. Guess ya had to be there!

It was funnier then THE show... She was staring at us (sitting behind the FRONT ROW)... and we were TRYING to watch the show! God forbid we laughed.... I guess they - well SHE - really wanted to be picked!
Speaking of Match your Mate. We were on the Wonder last May (Alaskan Cruise) with my Aunt and Uncle and they actually got picked. The host saw us in port the next day and told us that they were the funniest couple he had ever seen during his years working for the DCL. He said he wished he would have filmed it! My aunt rarely drinks and after having a couple of glasses of wine she came to life on that stage. Listening to my aunt and uncle on stage was totally shocking, unexpected and had the audience rolling with laughter. Too much information!

One was divorced and one was single, and they cruised on that ship about as often as hubby and I cruise Disney. But they had...uh, well let's just say "close" relationships with some of the crew members! Their stories were an utter riot, especially about partying with the crew in Ensanada. The staterooms were like broom closets, and we discovered that it was mostly a local CA crowd on that ship, so people would just prop their stateroom doors open, lie around in their underwear, and yell across the hallways to each other, discussing subjects I did NOT want to hear about from strangers!
On DCL, I have witnessed a nude woman in the Rainforest, and hubby witnessed two nude men (they started out in clothes, walked into the steamroom, and stripped right in front of him). In both cases, we pointed out it was co-ed, and that didn't phase them at all! I'm not offended by nudity, but I am definitely amused by it under those circumstances!
Barb
Sounds like you were seated with an interesting group! My very first cruise was on the Viking Serenade. I was so seasick that I vowed to never cruise again. Now I'm a DCL addict?!

"They did come with us most of the time, but usually we wouldn't take them to breakfast so when the room people came in to clean we would leave them in their bed. The room people loved them, they met them˙ day one on the ship. So when they came in the room they weren't freaked out or anything lol The room person would actually move them and take them out of their bed so he could make it. And he would sit them back nicely and do cute little things with them. "

I don't really care, except that, mom and grandma....babys don't put their hand over their heads like that when you are dressing them...drives me crazy when their feet and arms are all wrong....
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPVA55YE_DA
I'm of the opinion that this girl is a few cards short of a full deck.
Not quite sure why anyone would want to drag all that baby gear on a cruise for a couple of DOLLS.

And I have to wonder if she paid the stateroom host tips for the babies, since he/she had to make out the bed for the dolls/babies.

And why would a young woman this age rather be in her room at night, feeding and putting dolls to bed, than be out in the clubs having fun???

I wouldn't even have wanted to take one of my own kids on a cruise when they were babies....total waste of money TO ME (so don't flame me) and a waste of time having to be in the room with them so much.
