    I breast fed both of my children until they were 13 months old, and always covered myself while in public. While I agree with you that breast feeding is the most natural thing in the world, so is going pee, but I wouldn't do that out in the open for everyone to see. It takes nothing to whip out a blanket and cover yourself and yes to walk around and have your breasts bared in front of children (even if it is nourishing your child) is shocking to kids who are to little to understand or big enough to be embarrassed. You can still promote and encourage breast feeding, while also covering up. And as far as comparing us to Saudi Arabia or Europe, it reminds of my children saying "but so and so's mom let's them do it", and my reply is "well I'm not so and so's mom".

    For the sake of this hilarious thread, can we please not continue the breastfeeding argument from 8 years ago?

    Everyone has a strong opinion about it one way or the other, and nobody is going to change anybody's mind.

    It's best to stay away from controversial topics that raise emotions. If we as members can't do it on our own, the moderators will do it for us, and the result will be that we lose a terrific 8 year old thread.

    Sorry - but your comparison is wrong.
    Everyone eats in public - so a baby should be able to eat without a blanket in his face. NO ONE (legally) urinates/defecates in public.

    I agree. I nursed my babies when they were hungry, wherever we were, just like a mom who chooses to bottle feed. I never covered my child's face while eating and I never once had anything said to me or got glaring looks. You can be discreet without smothering your baby.

    I can guarantee it's happening in the Goofy Pool and Quiet Cove Pool as well. That's why they put chlorine in the water.

    DCL has a strict, self-imposed, zero overboard policy. They take all trash and waste back to shore.

    We just witnessed this on the Magic on the afternoon that we left Halifax (last week)! Couldn't believe how close that jet seemed. Of course no one was prepared with a camera (or not that I've seen).

    We were cruising with friends and it was their first cruise but we had cruised a few times. The seas were very rough the day we were leaving and my friend gets sea sick very easily. I knew that if you go down to deck 1 foward First Aid has sea sick medicine in a bowl that you can take. So she and I went down to get the medication but took a wrong turn and wound up in the crew first aid and instead of sea sick medicine it was a bowl of condoms.

    I love this thread! So many funny and shocking stories, I will try to remember these when the inevitable annoyances and rude people pop up on our next cruise. I'll either think, Ha, it could be much worse! OR, now I have a great story for the Disboard folks!

    I was just going to bump this but then I remembered Glynis. It was a RCCL med and we kept bumping into this British woman who is most easily described by comparing to her to Sue Boyle. Similar body types and hair style but this woman was slightly older, but that didn't stop her from wearing a bikini or thong underwear (yes you could see them). And of course we kept seeing her everywhere. But the most memorable thing happened at a trivia contest (battle of the sexes). And the question was something to do with the life cycle of ants. She knows the correct answer and gives it to the woman's team and then her husband says "glynis how did you know that glynis??" to which she replies in a argumentative way "I know things John I watch the nature channel!!!". From there on out if anyone knew the answer we would say "I know things Richard I watch the (fill in with appropriate speciality channel) Disney channel!"

    On our 2nd DCL back in 2000 the Magic made a stop in Key West - this was an unscheduled stop. It was October and it was durning Key West's "Fantasy Fest" we had NO idea what Fantasy Fest was well needless to say we found out quickly! After debarking the ship we (including my 2 young daughter) were walking down a side street and the first person of Key West that we saw was a man wearing a sock.....ONLY a sock......it was a tube sock.......get the picture :lmao: well needless to say we found out quickly what Fantasy Fest was and decided that my daughters could wait until they were 50 year old to get that sort of Fantasy so back to the ship we went!:rolleyes1

    When my daughter was 11 we took the eastern cruise on the Wonder.... We rented a car and took off exploring. As anyone can tell you the water and white sand beaches are gorgeous!
    We hauled beach bags, snorkel gear and lunch down the narrow walkway. Not sure what I saw first the naked woman laying in front of me with lots of body piercings or the full figure lady Running towards me thru the surf! Turns out we were the only ones wearing a bathing suit... We laughed so hard but decided to move a little further down the beach (about a mile haha)
    To this day my daughter laughingly and lovingly refers to St Marteen as the Nasty Beach!
    Don't get me started about the naked elderly couple in the beach shop!!!!!

    Two years ago on the Dream it was after the sail away party and we were looking down on the pools and standing in the Mickey pool was a woman wearing a bikini that could have been considered a thong, just a little bit more material. Well, sitting on the edge of the pool were all these Dads enjoying the show! It was priceless to watch these guys all eyeing one another with smiles on their faces.

    When I first looked down I thought it was great that all the Dads were at the pool with their kids! Only took a few moments of watching to see why they were all motivated to do their time at the pool! :rotfl:

    On the same cruise we were in loungers right by the adult pool and jumped in to cool off. As we were sitting in the pool a woman walks up to my lounger, picks up my towels and my bag and moves them to the table and sits down and begins reading her book. The couple we had been talking to in the pool watched in amazement as it happened and the woman was ready to start yelling! I told her we were probably heading out soon anyway. To have some fun my husband walks over and asks her if my room key is in the lounger and she tells him there was nothing in the lounger when she got there!! :eek: He just laughed and walked away with my bag.
