You are right, we need to wipe away that terrible poop discussion. Lets just flush it down the drain.

I teach middle school, sometimes I forget not every topic of conversation in the world is about farts, crushes, or how One Direction sucks / we love them.

I just wanted to add that these little exposures to bacteria and germs keep us healthy :-) Your immune system needs to be challenged to stay healthy. Average, everyday exposures are paramount to good health and also introduce good bacteria which we need to fight the baddies. There is good research to show that kids exposed to dirt and animals have lower allergies later on in life.

Anyhow, all to say: don't fear all germs. Fear them in big amounts, and fear the ones that can really make you sick. And wash your hands before eating, and stop touching your face (it's amazing how often in a day one touches their face, and your mouth is a common route for illness).

Back to the topic: the worse thing I have seen on a cruise? Someone missing the boat at port. I really felt for them. The boat pulled away and they didn't make it in time.

I don't make too many posts but feel that while this thread started off funny it has now turned down right nasty!
People keep saying how they don't want to see "fat and hairy" people but then say that they shouldn't wear T-shirts in the pool either! Maybe they should be banned from cruising so you can feel more comfortable??

I wear a T-shirt because my skin is more pale than anyone else's on the planet I like to call it "see-thru" I burn going to my clothesline. I am however thin. Is this acceptable? I have no idea.

I'm really sick of people saying on one hand that we should all be happy with who we are and then on another saying how they are disgusted by various traits that people have.

Sorry but it just made me a little mad.

From what I can tell, that was just one person. No need to worry.

One of the things I love about Disney Cruises is there are far more people with curves, hair, stretch marks, ECt than by your typical pool.

Wear your shirt (like I do!) and have a great cruise!

We have been fortunate enough to have been on several DCL cruise over the past few years. It ssems that every cruise we experience something ...

On one trip, We were halted by the Coast Guard when we spotted a makeshift raft with Cuban nationals. Although i am not familiar with marine law i heard that we had to stand watch to ensure they were okay until the coast guard had arrived.

On another, We had to turn around and head back to Key West for a passenger emergency. This put us behind the rest of our trip.

On yet another we had a medical emergency that could not wait, so we had a patient transfer at sea with the US coast guard while at sea.

On our 3 day Bahama cruise, every single day of the cruise the small pool was closed down for a "spoil" in the pool. Thank goodness my kids are older otherwise Imwould have been annoyed.

We got diverted from a mexico port to the bahamas because of the swine flu. Got to bahamas and 8 seconds off the ship, one of the locals offered to "fly us to the moon". Turned around and got right back on the ship !

I am not sure that any of our scheduled cruises has started and finished as scheduled !

I feel like a dork for asking but I have no idea what this means! (Other than, it's a Frank Sinatra song I like, lol)

Yeah, I'm curious to know if he had an actual spacecraft or if the trip was in his his pocket(and I'm guessing the latter)

On our cruise my mom said she was walking in that hallway on the Dream between Royal Palace and Animators Palate. She saw a dad pushing his son in an umbrella stroller up and down the hallway. The son was clearly older and too big for the stroller (maybe over 7) but she didn't think much of it, figured it belonged to a younger sibling. All of a sudden, as people were starting to exit one of those dining rooms from dinner, a woman approached them and said that was her granddaughter's stroller! The dad said something to her like "My mistake" and they gave her the stroller back. She must have left it outside the dining room during dinner and these people decided to take it for a spin!
