I can't believe I forgot about this one...

On our very first Disney cruise, we were wandering the ship fairly late on our last evening, and wandered into one of the shops. There was no one about except the merchandise CM who was busy stocking, and the cruise director... Who had gotten cornered by some frequent cruisers.

Now, we had encountered this particular couple all over the ship for those past 4 days. They were the type who were constantly interrupting everything to let you know how many cruises they had been on (including trying to correct the CM giving the safety instructions during muster).

Well they had the poor cruise director trapped, and were asking him about his wife, and getting much too... erm... personal. The poor guy was trying to politely suggest a different line of conversation, while trying to figure out how to extract himself from the corner of the shop they had backed him into.

After a few minutes we felt so bad for the poor guy that we played tourist and asked him if he could come take a picture for us outside the shop. He quickly agreed, and followed us out the door (if looks could kill, that couple would have killed us!).

When we got outside, he asked us where we wanted the photo, I told him we didn't need one... We just thought he looked trapped. He smiled and said, "thank you, you have no idea", before quickly ducking down the hall.

Some people just don't know when to stop. To put it nicely

The one and only cruise we were on was a carnival cruise 16 years ago! We saw a guy "digging for gold" while waiting to sail away. Yuck! He needed a tissue! We also saw someone sitting in a chair outside a cabin down our hall. Turns out someone was under house arrest for disorderly conduct.

I am enjoying these stories! Keep em coming.

Mentioned it before but I guess it fits on here. Just a few minutes embarked and got key card for room on CCL Triumph in 2011. Security on each side of a "lady" asked if she was with us. She was utterly completely toasted and passed out so they escorted her back. Asked if she was with us... Happened to be our next cabin door neighbor...great. We had been on ship probably about 30 min and she was just gone. CCL actually turned her card off for the day! (Yikes! Its BAD if Carn cuts you off!) Also the yrs may not have been kind but she was NOT less than mid aged or maybe even older. Def not a college chick or something...

As we were walking through the restaurant on board, her panties from the previous wearing fell out of one of the pant legs. She picked them up and started saying at in a very loud voice, "Look Mama! My panties fell off! How can that happen if I have my pants on! Do you want me to try to put them back on? How did this happen? Hey! I thought I had my Cinderella panties on and these have flowers! Wow! It's magic! Is there a Panty Fairy! Look!"

I just sighed, collected her bloomers and moved on. No mother of the year award for me this year.

I am truly sorry to any of you who experienced this and lost a little of your appetites.

I know this was posted ages ago but I just read it and I just about fell off the chair laughing. Read it to my husband and he cracked up too. I can totally imagine my daughter saying this.

Lol. Please what is a gradbaby? I have seen that posted but not sure what it means. I haven't heard that said in UK ( where we live ) . I tried to google it but got some very confusing links!

Yep whole cruise. Her cruise mate was NOT happy with her. You would think it would have been awkward but not too bad as I doubt she remembered it?

We have just got back from the 2 week transatlantic on the Magic. A new entertainment crew joined the ship ready to take over from the old ones at the end of the cruise. During the second week one evening we saw pirate Mickey "practising" his zip wire between the funnels. Watched him do it twice in a row!

There wasn't that many people round the goofy pool, was about 11pm, but all of us that were were cheering him on, and he was playing up to the crowds!

This happened to my parents...on an NCL Alaska cruise. A group of about 10 were going on a day trip and insisted that the chef got up early to prepare them all a cooked breakfast as they did not accept that at this early time there would only be cold buffet and serve yourself toast , waffles etc available. My parents were very shocked that the chef did get up ( they were on the same day trip and just had the cold buffet ) and made them all the full cooked breakfast offerings. None of the group turned up to breakfast ( my parents were at the next table at dinner so heard the argument and the chef giving in ) and the poor chef was very confused. When my parents saw the group ( from a certain country but I won't name and shame lol ) on the day trip they asked where they were at breakfast and they said 'they had no intention of going to breakfast but they have paid for it and it's the principle......

Omg...my parents were so shocked. This wasn't the only thing they demanded throughout the cruise. At the end of it they announced they didn't believe in tipping...
