Before we got turned around I traipsed off to the nearest inhabited building (the Waikiki Bar) to make a pit stop....down the sandy trail, into the bar, around the corner, through the door marked with the appropriate bathroom symbols and ...oops didn't see that 3" step...oops, didn't see the puddle of water collecting from the splashes of the two men showering off in the doorless cubicle...down I went...another view of a ceiling in a foreign country...Next thing I know there are two dripping men hanging over me trying to help me up off the floor.....

That's my story and I've got the bruises to prove it...

Oh Lynda!

As long as you didn't get hurt too bad- that's a funny story! Just what you want to see as you are being "rescued" from a fall! HA!

Maybe we should post a thread about topless and nude beaches that DCL takes you to! We took the Tulum excursion on our July Western cruise. I was determined to see some authentic Maya ruins. I thought that the excursion would be fun, although my DH and DSes were dubious. Well, was I surprised when DH stops at the edge of one of the ruins, looks out over the beautiful Carribbean Sea and says to me, "You didn't tell me we were going to a topless beach!"
Wow, was I surprised. DH and DSs went down to take a good close look! My 16 year old wanted to make sure he had a good story for his junior year in his all-boys Catholic high school.

While this wasn't shocking, it was unexpected! They loved the Tulum excursion.

With all the stories about shock of experiencing nude beachs, I'm wondering how you folk would fare if Disney were to offer a Mediterrean cruise. :D

OK, so I've posted on the "...Shocking" thread. Trust me, the nudity doesn't bother me. Unfortunatly, I didn't get any pictures of any of the onbeach sceanery.

DW on the other hand made sure that we were NOT going on an excursion where that would even be an option. After our excursion got cancelled, she ask the cruise director what the prettiest beach was and was told Orient. So it was HER choice to go and surprisingly enough, she didn't mind it (especially the naked guy with the glowing red buns

That I think was pretty shocking to me.....St Maarten....beach Rendevous on the French side. I was getting my hair braided and as I looked up, there was a totally nude man about 60+ years old walking by. I almost fell off the lounge chair and became nausea very quickly. When I had read the excursion booklet, it said "may encounter nudity". You may think I am nuts but on the walk back, I took a picture of him hahahahahahaha. It is now in my scrap book with a little saying above it reading..."Anyone have SPF 100"?????

We experienced some unexpected Castaway Cay nudity on the Wonder. Apparently, no one told the 70 year old gentleman that if you're wearing a loose-fitting Speedo, you shouldn't sit on top of a picnic table with your legs spread.

I just hope he didn't get splinters.

From your description, he DESERVED them. (There are some things I just don't want to see.)

We were on a Med. Cruise and some female guests did go topless.

I tell people the average age of the women who did was 35yrs old.

My male friends get interested until I tell them one was a 60 year old woman and the other a 10 year old!

Oh, how I love to "lie with statistics"!

Hmmmm, unexpected.....

This is the unexpected category but I couldn't help but get a kick out of it.

Last year - while watching couples get picked for "Match your Mate", my DH and I saw a couple who was NOT picked get very upset. The Mrs. turned her chair around - sat crossed armed - pissed off - and stared at the back of the room, completely turning her back to the stage. Then took off to the bar, left DH there to cheer on the couples. Came back and turned her chair again - VERY OBVIOUSLY that was sooooo funny - crossed arms and all -refusing to watch the show. I so felt sorry for DH. If he laughed or clapped or enjoyed - she gave the evil eye, and we just cracked up.... it was such a distraction but a distraction that we couldn't help watch and we still to this day do the "cross arm" action when we pout and kid each other. Guess ya had to be there!

It was funnier then THE show... She was staring at us (sitting behind the FRONT ROW)... and we were TRYING to watch the show! God forbid we laughed.... I guess they - well SHE - really wanted to be picked!

On our first Magic cruise in 2001, there was a group of three (looked like a husband/wife and brother or bil) traveling together. They were quite a sight!! Our first at sea day we were in the adult pool when all of a sudden the single guy comes jumping into the pool doing a cannonball and yelling, "Now thats the way to do a cannonball, woman!!" He was purposely jumping near women who looked like they did not want to get their hair wet. The first time it was kind of funny but eventually a CM came over and told him to cut it out. There was a man next to me in the pool who laughed and said, "So they really do give away cruises for being a Jerry Springer show guest!"
We saw him all over the ship that week, usually acting very strangely. On CC, the husband wife duo were in line at Cookies and a cup of red punch all over the guys CC white tshirt and just looked at him laughing as they walked away.
