Agree! why is it acceptable for women to dress in barely nothing with huge breasts and butts hanging out, but it's considered rude for a mother to breastfeed?

Personally I don't find it acceptable for woman with big breasts to wear next to nothing either. I am well endowed and make sure to cover up in a decent swim suit. Also I firmly believe in breast feeding but you still can do it with some amount of decency. I don't think it's fair to compare it to drinking coffee, the baby is feeding but it is feeding from a part of the body that normally you cover. So why is every one up in arms saying that when you feed a baby it's ok to let it all hang out. On a Disney cruise it's a family affair would you be insulted if I went topless? I think that's the point people are making. There are a lot of kids who will ask questions when they see something that is normally covered uncovered.

I loved the news story last week when the Pope told a woman in church she should feed her baby. She was embarrassed to nurse the baby in the church and the pope said if the baby is hungry, let him eat. She had a nursing cover.

I have no issue with that at all! I actually would and have fed my child with people around, i used a cover, I ment people who say women shouldn't have to use a cover and still be able to feed the baby in public with out anyone one looking or kids asking questions. That's what I ment use a covering not have to go somewhere out of sight.

On our honeymoon (DCL cruise to Alaska) we went into the post office in Skagaway to have our thank-you notes sent out with an Alaska postmark on them. Well, the interaction was less than magical! We first walked in around 11:30. Doors were open but no-one was around. We were trying to figure something out when a small window opened and a woman starting yelling at us! It was her lunch break and we were disturbing it. Now, giving her some credit, there was a small sign attached to that window that we didn't see until she pointed it out to us. (Kind of reminded me of the Wizard when he first opened the peep hole when Dorothy got to OZ ) OK, so we leave and go on our excursion. When we returned several hours later, she was in the main room behind the counter yelling at someone on the phone. DH is standing there with all of our notes in his hand as she is holding out her hand to get them from him giving him dirty looks because he's not handing them over (because we wanted to ensure they were Alaska postmarked). She turns her back to us with a dirty look and continues to berate the person on the phone. After a couple of minutes she says; "I have to go, people need my help" -venomously spewing out the word help- turns to us and says "What do you want?" DH gives his absolute best impression of the happy friendly tourist - emphasizing the whole newlywed/honeymoon piece, and asks about getting Alaska stamps and Alaska postmarks. Postal worker continued to be nasty and unhelpful telling us there is no metered postmark here, no Alaska stamps, etc... DH states; "there is no reason to treat us so badly, you are the most unpleasant public employee I have ever dealt with..." when a local resident comes in and adds to the melee stating; "Who do you think you are - damn tourists can't come in here and abuse our postmaster..." I start to step in to the "argument" to get this guy to back off when another guy steps in between me and DH (who I am trying to move closer to). I loudly call DH's name and tell him it's time to go. We walk out with our thank-you notes. We looked for the nearest governmental agency and went into the Forest Service office. What a difference! The employee there was so friendly, apologetic and knew just who we were speaking of telling us she has been a long-time problem. We get back on the ship and we decide to write a complaint letter the the chamber of commerce. DH is in a great hurry because he wants the letter to get off the ship before we set sail so Ms. Postmaster will have to process it.

Fast forward several weeks... We get a very nice letter from the chamber of commerce asking for permission to forward our letter to an Alaskan Senator since there had been so many complaints about this woman. We readily agreed. We heard from the Senator who thanked us and told us that this postmaster had been relocated to Alaska by her employers because of a long history of unpleasant behaviors. Senator said that tourism was vital to the community and was being adversely affected by this woman. (So many CM's on the ship had stories about her as well!) Skagaway depends on the mail system for much of it's basic living needs including medications. Said postmaster had been holding those "hostage" during temper tantrums. A special commission was set up to look at and address the problem. But I'll tell you, for the briefest of moments, I thought we were in some trouble when those locals turned on us!

P.S. We took our thank-you notes to the post office in Juneau and the postal worker there took the time to hand stamp each one as we chatted about how wonderful Alaska was.

Do they not have drop boxes in Alaska? Any mail put in there would have a postmark from Alaska as it would be processed where it is picked up. At least that's how the mail works everywhere else...

As a postal worker I found humor in this. Not about the rude woman, but the fact she was the postmaster and so nasty. I can totally picture the whole thing. Sorry she was so nasty.

Anyone up for some Bingo?

Just finished reading the entire thread and LOVED it. Anyone want to help me think of at least 8 REALLY good ones to make a "shocking bingo" card? The ones that come to mind first are:

Topless person on the cruise
Topless person at Castaway Cay
Drunken Outburst
Some form of entitled guest (should I have more than one type here)

For me personally, I will NOT but anything about breast feeding. It's a personal choice how to feed your child.

Any help to spice up our multi-generational family cruise would be much appreciated!

I have nothing scandalous but amusing none the less.

We have been home one week today from a 3 night Magic cruise.

I noticed this cruise (our 8th all on the classic ships).
That there were just an over abundance of kids always in the adult areas.
The first day while we were in Cove Cafe not one parent but 3 different parents had to be told they couldn't have their kids in The Cove. All claimed they didn't know. That was fine just go then. But this one man just looks at this poor girl who has to keep saying the same thing over and over about the age requirement.
He walks his kid over to where the pastries are and goes thru the entire case telling the kid his choices. He didn't care and wasn't leaving there without his goodies. So rude.
This was a theme the entire cruise, this same cast member chasing kids out of the inside and outside of The Cove.
We love to sit out there and relax.

Saw kids walking thru saying we are suppose to be here and giggling. The must have circled 5 times (no parents with them).

But the best one was a family of four. They were sitting on the 4 chairs facing the water. The 2 girls were tweens and really not bothering anyone, they were quiet.
We didn't say anything or report them because like I say they were just sitting there.
But somebody must have gone in and said something and here comes this poor cast member again having to chase kids away.
She walks up to the mother and tells her the girls can't stay. Well the look on this woman's face was frightening. She just throws eye daggers at this poor girl and flings her chin up toward her husband to the girl.
I have never seen such a disturbing look on someones face.
The husband was very apologetic and gets up immediately and leaves with the girls. The mother just sits there ignoring the 3 of them and doesn't move.
She was one scary lady I tell you. She looked like she was going to eat that poor cast member for lunch.

Last year on the Carnival Breeze, a 50+ man in a speedo, which was bad enough, but he was bumped up against the glass wall and ummm... well, there was music, and he was moving his pelvis region up against the glass a bit too much!
It still burns the eyes to remember that.
