There are no lifeguards at the pools on the ship. There is a CM positioned at the top of the slide to regulate when kids go down and make sure they don't land on each other at the bottom and one who watches the bottom of the slide but it is pretty much up to the parents to police the activities in the pool.

There were joking references to the bird throughout the rest of the cruise.
Wasn't that a hoot! Captain Tom made an announcement about several Brown ****ies being spotted from the bridge. It became the joke of the cruise.....

My pre-teen daughter learned a lot about anatomy at Orient Beach....there is supposedly a family friendly area, but we sure didn't find it. The funny thing is that I expected topless women--wrong! In DD's language, all the "swimsuit optional" people were "gross, fat old men." Her best comments were about the one who was "petting it."

A few years ago, my DW and I were in Key West with our sons, DS5 & DS3. While walking down the main shopping street, we came across a store with two guys with thongs on dancing together in the window of the shop. Now, how do you explain that to the little kids except to say they were very happy!

Wasn't it those 2 juggler / commedians (Wilde &???) that brought a kid out of the audiance to juggle bowling balls over him that started the "Brown Bo-obies" joke. And BTW that "kid" was great!! - I don't think he was a "plant" in our show (I think we had early show and late dinner on that cruise).

No, the captain said it first in his announcement. After that, it was repeated all over the ship!

While waiting to board the ship after an excursion my young sons (7,9 and 11) we stood behind a family of four. The husband was shirtless and had a tattoo of his naked wife on his back. You could tell from the nose on the girl's profile it was her. Wouldn't have been bad if seen in passing, but to stand behind him for 30 minutes making small talk with the boys was interesting. I didn't expect that with Disney!!

Shocking

We had gone back to our room after dinner. It was a "night at sea" so the ship was sailing pretty fast and we walked out on the Verandah to look out. We were about 8 floors up and we leaned over the railing and there was a man walking along the outside railing of the balconies moving along the side of the ship! It was pitch dark out and he was 8 floors up over nothing but water! We called security and they had to go from room to room until they nabbed him. He had to be drunk....or really brave!

Brave isn't the word that came to mind to describe him when I read this.

They say that there's one person meant to be with you... I think mine either got hit by a truck or fell down a well and forgot who they were looking for!

Our last cruise there was a 20-something girl with her mom and aunt at a table close to us. She and one of the servers were quite flirty and even did some smooching right there at the table! While PDA doesn't usually bother me, I couldn't help but wonder... this is Disney, don't they have rules against that?!?!

Yes, they have quite strict policies about fraternizing with guests....which apply even if the guest is your girlfriend! I'm really surprised about this.
