    On our 2011 med cruise we did an excursion to Cinque Terre. As our boat was traveling between cities, we saw a small boat with a completely naked, older man who was laying on his stomach using one leg to paddle the boat. He must have been a local because he didn't have any tan lines.

    Not shocking but funny....

    My first cruise was to Nassau in Jan 2011 with my sister :yay: , on RCL MOTS. As we were pulling in to port at Nassau my sister and I decide to head forward and watch. It was extremely windy, so we get to the front and DSis is wearing her bright pink snuggie she had been on a deck chair reading. It is plastered to the front of her.. I convince her to turn it around backward. :rotfl: So then we were having a good time letting this pink snuggie fly in the wind.. saying " I am the king of the world" :laughing: Then we decide to hang on the rail and jump to make it look like we are flying away, while I snap photos! :rotfl2: (Did I mention we are both in our late 20's and early 30's!)

    We are having a good ole time and the people on the walking track are laughing and having a good ole time watching us. I turn around and look up.. and EVERYONE on the BRIDGE & UPPER DECKS are having a good ole time watching us, laughing & pointing! :lmao: Every where we went the next 2 days ... crew & other passengers were pointing, laughing and say " How are our favorite sisters?" or "where's the snuggie?" My sister just decided to wear it the rest of the trip..... EVERYWHERE!!!

    Not sure if you will be able to see the pictures but here they are...

    That is a great story, PATTERSON PARTY OF 3! Had me laughing. :lmao:

    On the Wonder last week, I saw a child playing around the piano in Palo... I didn't realize the age-restriction had been dropped in that venue :rotfl2:. (It looked like his parent was at the check-in podium leaning over the counter trying to discuss a reservation.) Also saw a family on Castaway Cay jump over the fence at the end of the far-bike path viewing spot, walk past the 'keep out' signs and toward the water line... just didn't feel the bike path was long enough, I suppose. :rolleyes: :rotfl:

    We were in castaway cay in January waiting to use the open showers so my son could wash the sand away. The couple I front of us had a boy about 6 years old and he was washing the sand away too. They were taking up the whole space so all we could do was stand and wait. Well, he turns around and opens the back of his shorts to wash out his bottoms and his parents laughed, so he went a step further and pulled his bottoms right down. He mom stepped up I thought to pull them back up, but instead helped him take them off and he proceeded to shower naked in front of everyone while his parents laughed and my son freaked out covering his eyes (he is 4 and know private parts are supposed to be PRIVATE) I felt bad for all the moms of little girls walking by trying to shield them from the sight. The worst part was after standing there waiting for our turn, they walked away and before we could get my son in, another lady walked up and told her son into jump in!! Just another example of those "entitled people" getting what THEY paid for!!!

    I still love my story...maybe way back on the earlier pages, of the gal in a bikini, checking to see if she had tan lines (lifting her bottoms, adjusting herself) to see her reflection off the windows in Palo - while we were having brunch. :lmao:

    I may have posted this too, but I loved seeing our server Anne Marie with other servers in the private area in Palo have a party. She took a bottle of champagne and took a swig and everyone was having a blast. Hubby and I were strolling the deck. On our next cruise, we had her again and I told her what I saw and she turned beat red. Very cute :flower3:

    Well, I didn’t actually see this but I thought the story was funny.

    DH and I usually cruise with my parents. My DF loves to sleep to the sound of the waves so he would make up a bed on the balcony floor with the bedspread and pillows and sleep out there at night.

    Around 3am, he wakes to a very loud rumbling sound and thinks that the ship is about to be rammed. He starts to scramble up when a huge wave of water washes into the balcony, soaking him, the bedspread and pillows so now he is thinking tidal wave. :umbrella: He gets the balcony door open, as water is still pouring in, and falls into the cabin as the bedspread is twisted around his legs and feet.

    Luckily he was ok…just wounded pride. It was the window washing machine up above at the buffet restaurant going off.:rotfl2:

    How have I manged to MISS this thread all this time. This is solid gold stuff! :rotfl2:

    So here's one... it was oh, 10 years ago and DH and I are on our first cruise (not DCL), an 11 night Western Caribbean, and our assigned table in the MDR was this beautiful table right in front of the large aft window overlooking the sea. It was the focal point of the MDR. :thumbsup2 It was a large table for 12, so DH and I had 10 other table mates. Our table consisted of DH and me, a 3 generation family from New Jersey (of which I also hail from) who were very polite and were very excited because they had saved for years to take this 'once in a lifetime' cruise. All of us adults were joined with by lone gentlemen.

    Over the course of the cruise, each night we all talked about our excursions, our families etc. but none of us talked about our careers or work, which DH and I were happy about since we went on this cruise to ESCAPE our stressful job. Well, none of us talked about our job except one: the lone gentleman.

    Well, the first night in the MDR lone gentleman tells us that he is on board, gratis, because he is actually giving a series of lectures/talks for the passengers which, just so happens to be in the field of which DH and I (at the time) worked: Information Technology. DH and I nod and smile as he talks each night about his knowledge and encourages is to go and listen to one of his talks. Unfortunately, some of the things this gentleman was saying kinda made DH and I raise an eyebrow because he really didn't seem to know much about IT at all which caused DH and I to wonder if the cruise line actually vet these folks before offering them free passage in exchange for their 'expertise'.

    Finally on night 8 of our cruise, at dinner, lone gentleman decides to explain some 'interesting' tips for computers and how to do some particular process but what he was saying was incredibly misleading and if any of the others in our party really tried it, would completely ruin their personal computers. At this point, DH and I could stand it no more. We politely called bull-crap and corrected him.

    At this point, lone gentleman stands up, in the middle of the dining room and yells at DH and I, saying we have no idea what we are talking about that he is the expert on this ship and is sailing for free because he is such an expert. The rest of the MDR, witin rather close proximity stops to watch the exchange. Well, at that point, DH quietly reaches for his wallet and pulls out 10 of his business cards which clearly shows that he was (at the time) Director of IT for University which we work (I used to teach IT while he was Director of IT) and passes them around the table.

    The family from NJ suddenly let their true colors show. Imagine nice and polite grandma suddenly displaying the vernacular of Snookie from Jersey Shore ash she was telling lone gentleman that he had just been schooled. :teacher:. It was priceless. The whole family suddenly was asking DH all kinds of questions about computers etc. and lone gentleman left the MDR.

    We never saw him again the ENTIRE rest of the cruise. :rolleyes1

    My husband and I were on the 2012-2013 New Year's Eve cruise on the Dream. On New Year's Eve night, right after the midnight countdown, we were in the upper level just above the adult pool when we saw a boy, probably about 15 years old, practically crawling up the stairs, clinging to a Sprite bottle. It was clear that Sprite was NOT in the bottle. I truly don't think that DCL served him, I think that his family, or whomever he was with, brought some "happy juice" on board that he filled his bottle up with. I'm pretty sure that poor boy was within 10 minutes of emptying his stomach, and having a REALLY bad New Year's Day... We got out of the vacinity quickly....

    It wasn't funny and I didn't see it, but I'm sure it shocked anyone around when one of the glass doors to deck 4 shattered on our fantasy cruise last week!! It was outside the theater and I think a result of the windy pressure that our rocky cruise experienced (don't think anyone was hurt that I could tell). It had just happened after we came out of the theater. A little excitement!
