Oh, I think I can contribute now!
We went on the Fantasy for Spring Break. My son and I were standing in line to see the princesses, and Aladdin was standing towards the middle of the line before the first princess. My son and I finally made it to him and handed him our autograph book, when an elderly woman came up to Aladdin and shooed my son out of the picture so she could take a picture of Aladdin! I was too flabbergasted to say anything. I looked at the people behind me and in front of me, and they were too stunned to speak also. The lady in front of me finally said that now she had seen everything.

I've had this issue in the past, though only on the final night of the cruise where there are no official photographers- you know when they say "characters will be available for 20 minutes" right before the "See You Real Soon" party....one time I "accidentally" knocked (re: light body check) away one person who attempted to cut the line and another time sternly said in above average tone "no cutting the line"....

sorry- have to treat people the way they treat others...

The most shocking and unepected thing we've seen was a girl on the top deck (not the adult area) of the Carnival Freedom wearing a very short flowy skirt and no panties. The wind was blowing very strongly and nothing was left to the imagination.

On our cruise in March we saw two ladies on the Carnival ship next to us taking nude pictures of each other on the balcony with the Dream as a back drop.

I'm guessing they had been drinking a bit earlier that morning

I have to thank everyone on this thread, great reading kept me entertained on what I figured to be a really long school day. (I leave for my Fantasy cruise early tomorrow morning.) This thread got me through to 6th period and I'm not overwraught yet waiting for the day to end.

When we were at one of the waterparks; Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon; we saw a lady from one of the Muslim countries where the ladies have to be fully covered except her eyes. She was wearing a full body suit; like a jumpsuit; and her head and most of her face were covered. She looked like she was having fun.

On our second cruise we had a stop in St. Maarten. We were walking along the beach that was close to the ships. We wanted a nice picture of us with that blue water.

There was a couple who we ran into that said they were on their honeymoon. They eventually go in the water and were kissing with the girl sitting in the guys lap. It then progressed to much more than that. Maybe they conceived a honeymoon baby?! My husband and I just kept walking, not that they cared about privacy

Finally finished reading this. People saw very interesting things.

We've had 5 cruises on the Wonder and I guess judging by what others saw; quite boring. (thankfully)

I'd have to say my contribution is:
On our last cruise, we were a couple of tables away from a family with a number of well mannered children. Then I saw they were all watching cartoons on Ipads.

I guess we went to too many movies. I'll keep my eyes open on our next cruise in Dec.

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

I really haven't seen anything shocking on our cruises.

Clothes in the Pool...........I would much rather see a kid with a t-shirt on in the pool than see the same kid with a horrible sun burn. I'm a natural blonde, DH is a red-head. We burn. We wear a t-shirt over our swim suits. Besides, there's enough chlorine in those pools to kill most anything that might be on my clothing.

Rash guard shirts are designed for swimming. Surfers wear them. I see nothing wrong with wearing them in a pool. It's easier and probably healthier than reapplying sunscreen all day long. Sunscreen has a lot of chemicals in it that may or may not be harmful. I do know sunburns are not fun.
