Any embarassing moments on Disney cruises?

I love little anecdotes about embarassing moments or faux pas. Makes me feel like I'm not alone! Any embarassing moments from your Disney cruises you want to share? I'm certain mine's not unusual, but I had the experience of walking out of the shower buck-naked and throwing the curtains open expecting to see open seas. Not exactly. There was a Carnival cruise ship on the other side of the dock. I doubt anyone saw me, but I was the rest of the day.

We had a "similar" incident on our first cruise. Loving our balcony, we went to sleep with the sliding glass door and curtains open. When we woke up in the morning, there was a huge ship parked right beside us with a whole stream of "viewers" lined up looking our ship over. I'm pretty sure they could see in our room, but we just laughed it off and gracefully got up and pulled the curtains closed.

My MIL went to pat our Palo server on the hip and accidentally patted his butt instead. And she didn't even know it until we told her after he'd walked away.

Needless to say, the rest of the meal he avoided standing beside her. LOL

I was strolling around deck 10 one night with my DH during one of the evening movie showings on the DumboTron. Wet deck + flip flops = me falling with a very loud splat. A few people watching the movie hurried to assist me, but I was already up and laughing at myself. I was so embarassed, I wanted to run, but I walked gingerly away to avoid a repeat.

I don't have any yet, LOL! But I am worried about not beable to hear the spa lady knock when our time is almost up in the Rosul room. DH is hard of hearing, mostly deaf and I am partially deaf in one ear. I will just tell them to knock loudly!!

Yep, I feel your pain. Last summer, 1st night, we were just entering Parrot Cay for our 8:15 dinner. I am following a server to our table and suddenly, going around the corner, felt both my feet start to slide to my left. Down I went. My nephew, 11 and niece, 9 immediately threw themselves on top of me yeliing "Auntie!!!" 3 servers also joined the pile trying to pull all 3 of us up. I got to my feet, turned around and saw my sister with a look on her face of both concern and barely suppressed heavy laughter. By then I was so embarassed at the fuss - I just wanted to take my seat.

Only after sitting down was I able to take inventory and realize my right hip and wrist were aching. Oh yes, and my right butt cheek was wet. I still don't know what made me fall. My sister said something about seeing a piece of lettuce or something on the floor - but I don't know. Just for the record, I had only had 2 glasses of champagne much earlier in the stateroom, LOL. I can hold my liquor better than that.

The servers were SO concerned, but I was fine (if a bit sore still the next morning). Our family laughed ourselves silly. I still laugh when I think about my niece and nephew either trying to help me up or thinking I was dying or something.

As we we right at the Mickey Ears giving the gentleman our ID's and boarding card...DD/10 decides eating M&M's for breakfast wasn't the right thing to do. Thank you DH for that treat! Funny later though as DH and DS (8) ended up at a "whoa dude" surf shop getting 2 for 1 shirts cuz they felt so bad for them. DH couldn't wait for his luggage. We know it made for great footage for some lucky passengers video! Yuck!

Another would have to be SIL who decided she could "handle" two Bahama Mama's...not...head down on table..I believe we have a sleeper! That definitely ended up on my video!

DW and I were on our honeymoon and we ended up on Match your mate. Enough said. We were getting funny comments for the rest of the cruise.

On our last cruise my hubby and I had an afternoon nap () with our balcony curtains open. There was no ship beside us and we were au natural on top of the covers. Next thing I look over and there is a 2 man team on a platform cleaning the balcony plexi glass. Talk about embarrassing.

I too have been walking on deck 10 in flip flops and ended up KERSPLAT!
But for me the most embarassing moment when I was going from deck 10 to 9, down the stairs.....a gust of wind.. yeah.....I was wearing a skirt...peasant style no less. Enough said. Oh and it didn't help that some guy across the deck thought it prudent to whistle!
