I don't know how shocking this is but I was horrified. In the MDR there was a group taking up several tables near us. The adults sat at two tables and they stuck all the kids at another. The kids treated their waitstaff like crap, threw things, and created drawings and I mean mural size on the nice white cloth tablecloths. All while the parents laughed it up and drank at the next table. I would have presented the parents a bill for 7 tablecloths at the end of the cruise!

A note about the tablecloths - you ARE allowed to draw on them. On our cruise last summer, the assistant server brought out crayons and would draw brain-type puzzles on tablecloth for us to solve. He encouraged my teenage sons to draw whatever they wanted. He brought out crayons for them to use on the tablecloths. It was my 5th cruise and the first time I'd heard it was allowed.

We had a similar experience on one of our cruises but the first night an elderly lady at our table got up and went over to the adult table and informed them "This is a Disney Cruise and we take care of our children on Disney cruises. I suggest you take care of yours." From that meal forward the parents made sure the children's table was orderly.

Yes, the crayons we had on the Dream and Fantasy were Crayola washable crayons. I had no idea they existed! But I can see how it would be shocking to witness a bunch of unruly kids defacing their dinner table. It felt so wrong to have my kids drawing on the tablecloths in Royal Court!

We booked rooms at the Comfort Suites Paradise Island to get the Atlantis access. When we boarded our taxi (a large van with about 3 or 4 families), I realized the driver was apparently watching an adult film on the DVD player in the van. At first I didn't notice until I heard the woman use a very vulgar word, at which I yelled from the back go the van, "can we PLEASE change the movie???". Thankfully, my 3 boys (ages 7, 9, and 11) didn't hear it, but I'm not sure about the other kids on board. Who goes to port to pick up families and thinks, "while I wait, this will be good to watch!" Crazy!

The weird/shocking thing we had on our cruise was:
I got the rainforest room as a treat for myself. I was excited. So my 4 or 5th day on the cruise I was laying in the heated recliner with my book. It was me and this older (70s-ish) couple in the recliner room. I heard coming into the shower area this girl that was younger. She had braces, the tiniest bathing suit I've ever seen, and a tattoo (some trampy flower). Her and her friend were being loud. I don't know how old she was but I don't think she was 18. Or if she was 18 she was a young 18. They were totally being disrespectful in the shower room by being loud and obnoxious to the point that we could hear them in the recliner area. Then her and her friend came into the recliner area look around and out to the two spas. Still loud. They get into the spas and splash around. Then the girl was like "OH MY GAWWWWD everyone in here is so fat!" The older couple weighed maybe 150 put together. They were the thin spindly adorable older couple. I'm 5'10" 210lb (but I'm a muscular gal. Most people say "you don't look that big!"). I just died. I covered myself in my robe and felt so uncomfortable. I don't think I went back.

Omg how did you hold your tongue?!
Perhaps the saying of 'I may be fat, but you're ugly and I can go on a diet' may be of use if this happens again.
They would have had a quick dunk under the water if they'd said it towards me ... Throw them overboard!!

We just got off the Magic yesterday. The shocking an unexpected thing for us was that they did not announce family names when we boarded! I think it's because the ship was running about 3 hours late due to fog and they were trying to rush everyone on board.

I was sooooo shocked I couldn't say anything. I told my co-workers (we work NOCs so we all are either fluffy or really watching our weight.) when I got back. Everyone was like "I'd spread out" or "I'd pretend I was Jabba the Hut when he had all those lady slaves." Later, after the shock, I wanted to tell her 30 sucks and I could lift 200lbs with qualms so if she really thought I was fat....

We asked our waiter about this and were told that some of the tablecloths can be colored on and some can not. So ask before you start coloring. They will gladly make sure you get one that can be colored on at your table if requested.

Ok. I have one.

Saw two parents on Castaway Cay just yesterday tell their 5 yo to go pee on a tree because they were to lazy to take home to the restroom. He did!

Felt sorry for the little boy.
