The most shocking thing that happened to my family was back in 2003 and we went to the straw market in Nassau. I took my two girls to get there hair braided and my husband went in search of cigars. Well my husband wandered to far and he was offered sexual things I will not mention on a family board, but I am sure you can all imagine. So next thing I know I see him jogging my way and I ask what happened. After he told me I responded well did you try and haggle....we are at the market

Where is it "appropriate" for an infant to eat on a plane? Being "European" I guess I don't get why feeding a child is embarassing for some people.

We once had to bring our kids in off the veranda after our neighbors were a little "noisy" in an intimate way. Our dd asked "Has that lady has got a boo boo"

not really shocking but interesting.

On one of our NCL cruises we were seated at a table with five couples. Everynight we would talk about all the things we did that day and it quickly became obvious that one man was spending a great deal of time in the casino much to his wife's dismay. Things heated up over the first few nights until another table mate took the husband aside and suggested he spend some time with his DW the next day. The next night they were late to dinner and came in flushed and obviously excited. They ordered champagne for the entire table and laughed so much that the rest of us were almost afraid to ask what had changed. Turns out that he had taken the advice and spent the morning with his wife, they napped all afternoon and then the two of them had meandered down to the casino to wait for dinner. While he was playing poker his wife decided to play the slots and won the jackpot on her first pull. The jackpot covered more than their cost for the cruise! He never stepped foot back in the casino that I know of - said it would be pushing his luck. They were like newlyweds the rest of the cruise and bought all the wine at dinner each night.

We just returned from the Aug. 20th repo on the Magic. An earlier poster referenced the Go-Go's and Bon Jovi contest. This same night we were seated at the very side of the stage back by the exit of Rockin Bar D. The female guests that were part of the Go-Gos came out with towels wrapped around them. At the end of their performance they were instructed to open their towels so from the front of Rockin Bar D it just appeared that they opened up their towels and they didn't have on anything under them. Well from our side the girl on the end really only had on a thong and no bra so when whe opened up her towel we all were flashed. My DH and my friend's DH had smiles on their faces. All of the other girls actually were covered up. A couple of nights later this same woman (she had to be in her 40s so she really isn't a girl) came into Rockin Bar D to do the scavenger hunt. One of the things they asked for was a bra. She is dressed in a linen/gauze strapless top and pants. She proceeds to remove her bra and run up to the stage for her scavenger hunt points. The material in her top was so thin you could see everything. She then went back to her seat and managed to put it back on in quite the production. Later in the week our friends told us she volunteered to be a band member for 70s night but the cruise staff politely told her no. We wondered if they had gotten any complaints about her.

Our team won that scavenger hunt on the August repo!!! It was a lot of fun but I was so busy running things up to the stage I missed the "show" when she whipped her bra off.

On the other subject...my DD has participated as go go's on previous cruises and one time my DD's towel definately slipped....she caught it in time but she was mortified!!!

Here is a pic of my DD and niece as go gos and my son as Bon Jovi....they always like to participate and always have a great time!!

Here is a pic of some the Go Gos from the August repo....are any of these the one you were talking about?

I got a really good pic of the Bon Jovi group on the repo....I happened to be coming back from the bathroom and Joey Fatone and the rest were just waiting in the wings to be called in....I got this shot!!!

This isnt completely over the top and there could have been valid reasons (ie lost luggage), so I'm not judging, but on formal night on our last cruise, there was a larger woman next to us wearing a strapless halter top, like those terrycloth, bathing suit covers, with a "skirt type cover on bottom. She also had sunglasses on top of her head. Another night she did wear a bathing suit with a cover up over it to dinner, but at least that wasn't formal night. This was late dining too.

Upon docking in Cozumel, the ship direclty across from us had lots of verandah cabins and was already docked. 1 couple it appeared went to bed with their verandah doors wide open to partake of the ocean breezes and had decided to sleep in that morning. As we pulled up alongside, there they were still alseep, stark naked for all the Disney Cruisers to see!

On the August 13th West Coast cruise, because of bad weather, they had to have Pirate Night inside, in the main lobby. I was standing with my mother and my best friend on the 4th deck overlooking the lobby as everyone was dancing. Well there was a larger girl wearing a strapless tubey-top thing, much like Camcolt was describing, and if they were on the same cruise we're probably describing the same person. Anyway, this girl was dancing and jumping about, and it was almost an moment as um, "things" almost came popping out! The tubey top thing did not really flatter her and I hit my best friend in the arm and was like, "Oh my god, look! They're gonna pop out!" The girl kept adjusting herself, but there were a few close calls where deck four almost got more than they bargained for at the Pirates IN the Caribbean Party show!

Thanks for the picture and the memories. The lady in question was the one with the short red hair, in your picture. Like I posted, she was in her 40s but had quite the body with some possible surgical enhancements it appeared.

Hi, I hesitate to post this... I am always worried that whoever I am talking about will read it... One time I posted about a silly incident on the boat from MGM to EPCOT and I had a few people respond saying, "Oh, I was worried that you were talking about me, but we weren't staying at the Dolphin," or "I was worried it was me, but my daughter didn't bring her special blankie that time," and so on, so I've tried to be careful... so anyhow, this is not all that shocking.. but memorable, so here goes..

On our cruise last spring, my 16 yo daughter and I had just boarded and began to eat our lunch at Topsiders welcome buffet. I always like to eat our first meal outside with the egrets weather permitting, sort of a tradition. DD and I find a nice table outdoors, right at the edge looking out over the port. Mmmmm- ahhhhhhh, smell that sea air. This is so nice. We are on our cruise. Everyone is so happy to be here. Look at all these smiling faces.

Just then, a family, consisting of the mom and dad - probably in their mid-40s, and their four or five attractive children ranging in ages of about 8 to 16 years old, decide to eat at a table near us. What a nice big family, I am thinking. They are all dressed nicely in cruise attire - you know, the dad looked like he just stepped off the golf course -- I only mention this so you know they looked like the model family, not "Married With Children."

The dad, who was the last one to get to the table, had just sat his tray down, took his seat, and was about to take that first bite of shrimp when suddenly, we hear a *pling* sound. The dad leaps up, clearly upset, and says to his wife, "WHAT DID YOU DO!? DID YOU JUST THROW A FORK AT HER?" (he is asking his wife is she threw a fork at one of their children). The mom is trying to shush him up and make him sit down, but he goes on, "DID YOU JUST THROW A FORK AT YOUR CHILD? WHAT KIND OF MOTHER THROWS A UTENSIL AT HER CHILD?"

Now, he is quieted down a bit, but everyone around can see him all puffed up and can hear something is going on. In between his louder voice, you could hear the moms muffled voice, but we couldn't hear what she was saying. I was facing them. My daughter's back was to them. So while I could see it all, she could hear it all. Only I was trying not to look because their poor kids are all dying of embarrassment. No one knew what would happen next, but we were ready to duck.

I honestly don't know if the mother threw the fork at her daughter out of anger or annoyance, or if the daughter simply said, "Please pass the fork," and mom did her best quarterback imitation, but dad was fuming! His face matches the cocktail sauce and I swear I can see smoke coming out of his ears.. or is that the smoke stack? The mom tries to get him to sit down and be quiet, but he wouldn't. He continues... "Do you see anyone else throwing utensils at their children?" I give my daughter a quick glance. He keeps at it, "Do you think that's normal? Well, I don't! You know what? I don't even want to eat with you!" Mom is still mumbling in a low voice and tugging at his arm urging him to sit down and he yanks his arm away and says, "No! I refuse to sit with someone who throws utensils at their children!"

With that, Dad grabs his full tray and stomps off to eat somewhere else. The remaining family members continue to eat in uncomfortable silence. I look at my daughter and whisper, "Let's hope this isn't the most exciting thing that happens on this cruise."

After a bit, the mom starts kidding around with the kids and they all start to giggle nervously, maybe to save face due to the embarrassment (hey, she should have thought of that before she threw the fork, eh? . Mom jokes around and tries to get some of the kids to convince the dad to come back to the table. But he doesn't return. Until dessert, that is. Dad emerges from the swinging doors, dessert in hand, and everyone is waiting to see what will happen.. will he go back to the table or won't he? He sashays past his family as if he has never seen them before in his life, and sits a few tables away from them and closer to us. By this time, I was ready to finish my delicious Ivory Coast cake (get it while you can, I never saw it again after the embarcation buffet!) and get the heck out of there.

I don't remember seeing the parents again after that, but we saw the teen boy several times. I always felt bad for him, not the best way to start off a cruise, but the incident did make for some tender moments between my daughter and I when she would make some comment to me and I would remind her that at least I wasn't throwing untensils at her. It became sort of a cute little buzz line between us, you know how that happens on vacation and it just sticks.

So just remember, my fellow cruisers, when at Topsiders, beware of flying forks!

Hey! That was me! J/K Actually we were down on the floor, near the elevator, but I didnt see that. I couldnt see anything except the backs of the people in front of me and the people in the elevator.
Did she have long dark hair with the braids in it?

Ok, I'll play

We were on the Celebrity Constellation and had a balcony. Well, when its a sea day, no one can see onto the balcony, right?

Unless, of course, you are just above the lifeboats . . .

Which the crew can get on top of to clean . . .

Let's just say that, for the next cruise that we splurge for the balcony, we'll splurge a little more to get one a deck or two higher!
