In 2001 DCL, we stopped at St Marteen, one of the excursions was going to the beach, part of the beach was attire was optional. I only saw 3 people that went topless, but what made me sick was seeing a very obese man with a thong on. Enough Said.

In 2003 DCL, a couple next to us was having " FUN" left their balcony door open, needless to say we heard things.

It wasn't until 4:00 that they finally announced that there was a fire on board, and everyone needed to get to their evacuation stations with lifejackets on....and there we stayed for more than an hour. Not a problem for those whose evac station was the WDT, but for those of us on deck 4 who had to keep inhaling the smoke while standing the whole time, it was less than enjoyable.
We were on that cruise too. Our station was Animator's Palate. I had food poisoning from something I ate on shore. During this event at 4AM I am filling a champaigne bucket at Animator's much to the dismay of everyone else waiting to get back to their rooms. That was pretty shocking even to me!

The most shocking/funniest things I've ever seen on a cruise were these:

On the first cruise I went on with Disney, every night a group of friends and I would sit on on the 9th deck and just hang out. Well also every night this group of about 5 or 6 Chinese guys would stumble out onto the 9th deck TOTALLY drunk. Well the last night, they stumbled out as usual, only this time they had a recorder (you know... those little plastic flute thingys they make you learn to play in school) It was SOOO FUNNY listening to and watching them!!!

On the second cruise I went on, my two friends and I were in an elevator and one decided to do a "007" barrell roll out of the elevator. He did it, but didn't see the maid vaccuuming right by the stairs. We took a roll right down the stairs and took the vaccuum with him!!! Needless to say the maid didn't have very nice things to say to him. But everyday after that there was a caution sign next to the vaccuum everytime someone was vaccuuming. I had to laugh everytime I saw the caution signs.

My most "shocking" cruise was not on DCL. It was on Viking Serenade, an ancient RCCL ship that they no longer have. We had a set of people at our table that I doubt we'll ever top: A couple in which the husband was literally over 7 feet tall (the poor guy kept banging his head because that ship was TINY) and a set of twin sisters. One was divorced and one was single, and they cruised on that ship about as often as hubby and I cruise Disney. But they had...uh, well let's just say "close" relationships with some of the crew members! Their stories were an utter riot, especially about partying with the crew in Ensanada. The staterooms were like broom closets, and we discovered that it was mostly a local CA crowd on that ship, so people would just prop their stateroom doors open, lie around in their underwear, and yell across the hallways to each other, discussing subjects I did NOT want to hear about from strangers!
On DCL, I have witnessed a nude woman in the Rainforest, and hubby witnessed two nude men (they started out in clothes, walked into the steamroom, and stripped right in front of him). In both cases, we pointed out it was co-ed, and that didn't phase them at all! I'm not offended by nudity, but I am definitely amused by it under those circumstances!

It wasn't funny at the time, but now I can laugh at it. During my first cruise ever, a 3-day on the Magic in June of 1999, the rest of the people at my dining table threw a collective hissy fit and demanded to be seated elsewhere before the wait staff had even taken drink orders. The indignant and overly loud calling for the head waiter started as soon as we were seen approaching the table, where the other assigned passengers were already seated. The reason? There was a child in my party. Can you imagine? On a Disney ship yet?

Good grief!!! I Thought that I had heard it all. I certainly hope that you didn't have to sit with those unreasonable babyish adults for the entire cruise.

When we were on the Nordic Empress we had a rare opportunity for an overnight in Cozumel. The crew were all excited that they could party at Senor Froggs and Carlos and Charlies. Anyway as the crew were getting off the ship, DW and I along with our friends that joined us on the cruise were watching all of this from the promenade deck.

We see and attractive woman talking to the crew members. She reminded me of a groupie. Well all of a sudden a bridge officer comes off the gangplank. She was like flies on poop, she made a beeline to him and talked to him for over an hour! It was funny! She ditched the crew for the officer and was trying very hard for "private tour"

We waited and waited, but no tram. Well, after about 10 minutes, one of the CM's stood up, went to a bush, right under the roof where we were sitting, and started urinating in the bushes!! My wife and I just looked at each other, totally shocked! After he was done, he just put it away and sat back down. We were totally disgusted. It almost ruined our day. I am even in construction, so seeing this sort of thing is not uncommon for me. I guess being a Disney employee, I just expected a little more from him. Heck, he had the entire island to use, but he chose to do it right there.


WEIRD!!!!
This is OFF topic...but your experience above reminded me of a recent trip tothe Mall/ Macys...We saw a security guy in full uniform doing the same thing against the building. I was shocked since he was in uniform, on duty and there were restrooms inside the store! I thought about reporting his actions but didn't.

not shocking but "different". a group of 4 couples who tended to dress in western attire pulled out all the stops on formal night. they all came in their matching square dance outfits (inlcuding the poofy crinolins under the ladies skirts).

of course i am always shocked (and dismayed ) by the YOUNG girls (6,7,8 year olds) dressed in the most inappropriate manner (they resemble what is known in my neck of the woods as "working girls")-shorts that do not cover their bottoms, small strips of fabric on their chests (resemble nothing more than a head band), little strappy high heels-and MAKEUP. i'm not talking the play stuff-the real mccoy. then on formal night they are in backless (almost frontless) dresses with their hair done to the 9's. the clothing is nothing i could fathom allowing a teenager to wear let alone a little girl.
