    On our first cruise we were seated with two other lovely, yet older (think our parents' ages) couples. They were all veteran cruisers and we enjoyed talking to them about itineraries they had sailed, different lines, etc. The other chairs were empty. One lady looked a little embarrassed and said, "well, my daughter and her boyfriend are sailing with us, but I think they had a little too much fun at the Sailaway."

    Mid-meal, they stumble in, reeking of body odor, stale beer, coconut oil, and skunk weed. He's got on a pair of surfer shorts, midriff exposed sleeveless shirt, and I'm not certain he even had shoes on. She had a bikini top under a pair of cutoff overalls that showed her Hoo-ha off to god and everyone, and she was equally hammered. They, of course, were fiercely fighting about something that happened three minutes earlier.

    Fast forward to two nights later, we had skipped one night to dine at a specialty venue, then returned to the MDR, only to find that the young couple had split up, and she had apparently taken another lover while on board, basically kicking the ex out of his own cabin. Her parents felt sorry for him and had taken him in to their cabin, and he was drowning his sorrows daily then still coming to dinner, as well as the girl and her new boy toy. Bachelor #1 is so inebriated that he can barely hold his head up, and food falls out of his mouth onto his shirtsleeves and table cloth, and he just leans down and gobbles them directly up like a dog, no flatware.

    Bachelor #2 was almost as impressive. He spent most of the meal blustering about working out and bragging, making sexual innuendo about his new friends body, talking loudly about their escapades and creative uses of deck loungers, hot tubs, railings, small showers. Meanwhile she just sits there looking like she's in a Xanax fog, half-lidded grinning like a dopey idiot but never saying a word.

    The whole table had been ordering appetizers to share all week, and same with entrees. If someone found something they liked,we would cut and offer a sample or simply order another for the table. Vice versa, if something was not well received, then the rest of the table got a small portion served to them so they could take a sample. Braggy loudmouth noticed that DH had moved some sun-dried tomatoes off to the side of his entree. He yelled, 'Hey! I love me some maters!" and went across Clints plate with his fork and proceeded to stab them and a good sized pork medallion. Upon which DH grabbed his arm and told him in no uncertain terms was he to NEVER sit by him again, much less try to eat off his plate again. After that, the last two nights of the cruise were quite lovely, and bachelorette and bachelor # 1 had a long ride back to Texas together, who knows what happened to beefcake #2?:wave2:

    No way! Are you sure this wasn't an episode of the Bad Girls Club, The Real World, Teen Mom2, Love Cruise, Temptation Island or Keeping up with the skanky panty sniffing Kardashians? :rotfl2::rotfl2: :faint:

    That's when it's time to make a request to the head server for a different table/rotation. Dh really enjoys dinner time on a cruise; I wouldn't want anything to ruin that for him. We usually cruise with enough people that we have our own tablemates.

    Several years ago, while I was first in line at GS, they were trying to help a special needs teen find her group. She was crying because she couldn't find them. While the CMs were trying to keep her calm (one CM decided to walk her to where the teens were meeting) this guy in shorts, flipflops and no shirt storms up and is yelling "I want to talk to the Capatin, I am not leaving until I talk to the Captain, the bunk bed ladder is missing and my son needs to go to sleep". And on and on. Then he started swearing. "I want my @#$%^&* ladder." "Please sir we will help you as soon as we take care of this young lady." The outcome? I don't know, I left, I figured I would just come back later.

    I kid you not. It was NOT on DCL, though. We have had some real winners since then, too. I've learned to request a table for two or cruise with a group. Lets see, me and a girlfriend got seated at 'the single ladies table' once...we were in our 20's, the rest in their 40's & 50's. Two were VERY religious, praying before each meal and two were cougars looking to party, slipping room keys to bartenders. My brother & I cruised together once and got seated with another couple at a booth. Her boyfriend said , "Hey, she is a nurse, too!' referring to his girlfriend so I thought at least we'd have that in common. Turns out she worked in a dialysis clinic answering phones and they both stayed so drunk on the boat and he was apparently so high both on and off the boat that she would come to dinner alone and order, he would show up after the food came, gobble, pick his teeth and complain, then leave.

    I was on a Northern European Capitals Cruise in 2010 with my daughter, and we were sitting in Parrot Cay (our table was right next to one of the huge portholes) having dinner in the middle of the Baltic Sea, on Pirate's Night. While we were eating, we saw the top of a submarine right next to the ship. When word got around the dining room, everybody was rushing to the windows on our side to see the submarine. We assumed the Baltic officials might be in the submarine in an attempt to watch the boat and make sure there weren't any fireworks, due to the fact that they weren't allowing the display in the Baltic. It was quite a sight though.

    Just off the Dream. First ever cruise! The first night, we decided to watch "Lincoln" late in the theater as I had not seen it yet. Before the movie started, I went to use the rest room and saw Snow White and Dopey wandering around the halls. As I came out of the rest room, they were in the hallway outside the theater. As it was St. Patrick's Day, I was wearing my Stitch t-shirt that is blue and green tye-dye that has Stitch "eating" the shirt. I had the best interaction with Snow White and Dopey (and of coarse no camera with me!). Snow White noticed Stitch "eating" my shirt and Dopey was acting scared. They stayed and talked with me for at least 5 minutes before heading off. I vowed to have a camera on me at all times from then on! Love Disney!

    I have read this entire thread!!!

    The grossest thing I have ever seen was on our honeymoon cruise a little over 10 years ago. It was a sea day and we were lounging by the pool. There was a couple across from us. I look up from my book to see the woman popping the zits on the man's back :eek:

    Can your reserve that service ahead of time or just when you're on the ship?

    On our last cruise on the Disney Dream there were two families related we believe on the table next to us. Two sets of parents who both had young children. Not a problem although we are not blessed with children ourselves we enjoy children being around. However every night they turned up late which stressed the serving staff, then they would order large quantities of food ( two entrees each etc ) , then without fail every night they would leave the table going back to their rooms ordering the serving staff to box the entire meal up to go? This was after each child had attempted to eat their dinner of mac n cheese with their hands....so they left the table in a mess ordering another mac n cheese for each child.

    I have never seen anything like it. We could not work out why they just did not order room service in the first place or allowed their children to eat entrees such as mac n cheese with their hands. It went every where! Needless to say the service the rest of us got from the servers was terrible because they spent the whole cruise running around after them. We also noticed the parents ate some of it at the table but insisted they make fresh ones? Did they have more people in their cabin or something? We were tempted on the last night to follow them and find out! It was predictable by then to the second....

    I totally agree with you about the inappropriate dress attire of young girls that I have seen on cruises. On my last cruise this past February, every evening before dinner I would see many very young girls (between 10-14) getting photos taken with their families and they were wearing the tightest, shortest most skin-revealing outfits imaginable with 7-inch high heals, no less. :scared1: I would never let any of my four daughters wear such skimpy clothing in public. I kept looking at the parents trying to figure out why on earth they thought that type of dress attire was appropriate for their young daughter to be wearing. I actually felt embarrassed for them since the only looks they were getting were shocked looks or lewd looks from some of the older men on the ship. My daughters have started wanting to dress up for dinners when they go on the cruises and we have looked at dresses in stores and 9 times out of 10 they will pick out an inappropriate dress and I will have be the "Bad Mom" and explain to them that the dress is too short, too tight etc. Then, I show them several options that are pretty and age-appropriate and they usually end up liking my selections once they try them on. Young girls need direction at their age when picking out outfits. If you let them just wear anything they want, it will probably end up being inappropriate.

    IMHO, the issue with most of these young girls want to follow in the footsteps of their idols. At that age, guess what channel is probably the most influential to their styles? You may have guessed it, The Disney Channel. We have cut down our 9 yr old twins allowed time watching Disney Channel and have seen a drastic improvement in attitude and fewer "dramas" with relationships with friends.

    And not to mention what is actually available in stores. I have boys but when I shop with friends with girls I am shocked at the skimpy stuff they are selling to preteen girls. My friends often have a very hard time finding age appropriate clothing.

    Loving all these stories! Cannot wait to hear more!
