    This is why I'm happy that my daughter doesn't watch much TV. She's actually pretty modest. A true blessing.

    Lets see two of the craziest things one was in the spa on the Magic years ago a Japanese gentleman comes out of the steam room in his birthday suite. The second was walking on castaway towards the tram when my DW says to me oh my ,the elderly women walking in front of us,had forgotten to put on her bathing suit bottom! I have to say we did get a good chuckle out of both

    Oh my...you kinda have to feel sorry for her!

    These stories are great! though I must admit, I'm wondering about table mates. Should I request a table for two for my first cruise?? Or come home with stories to tell!:)

    I love people watching especially on cruises. Here are a few of my favorite spots.

    Overheard on the upper deck while leaving port when dolphins started to jump and play in the water along side of the ship "I wonder how much Disney had to pay them to do that?"

    Overhead in the spa "a friend told me to get a fish extender so I bought one on ebay and hung it up outside our room. I bought candy and put them in the other FE's but no one has but anything in ours!" I guess her friend forgot to mention the boards.

    Overheard by the pool around 9 am. Man to woman in HIS lounger at the family pool "You are in our seats, I put towels on those chairs at 7 this morning." The woman replied, "I am sorry, there was not anything here when we arrived. The cast member probably moved the towels as there is a rule against saving chairs" Man, "but no one was here when I got up so I was not saving them I got them first" He then stormed off to have a conversation with a cast member - I did not catch that conversation but by the body language, it did not go well for the man.

    Overheard in the Quiet Cove - adult only area - mom in the hot tub, dad in charge of the kids bring them into the adult area and tells them to get into the hot tub with their mother. Mom explains to dad that this is an adults only area, no kids allowed. Dad explains to mom, in a very demeaning tone, that what they mean by that is that no kids without parents allowed and since the kids are with him, it is okay. Before mom could reply, a cast member came over to explain to dad that no kids are allowed -Mom did very well at hiding her smile until dad and the kids were out of view.

    We were on the Magic out of Galveston on February 9th. On one of the port days, we stayed on the ship so that our kids could have the Mickey pool virtually to themselves (so nice!). A father gets in the pool with a little boy. Little boy suddenly starts crying, and then the two quickly get out of the pool, while the three of us were still in the pool. They quickly packed up and left the deck area. Our kids continued swimming for a few minutes until I saw IT floating in the pool where the little boy had been. He had pooped in the pool, and the dad didn't have the decency to tell us! Needless to say, he had not alerted a crewmember either. So. Gross.

    As my seven year old recently told me, "That is sick!! I don't mean the 'cool' sick, I mean the 'something is wrong with you' sick!"

    I wonder if that same father/son sailed again on the March 1 Galveston sailing that I was on? Nasty.

    This was our first cruise, never had anything to do with Mickey Pool other than to walk by. I and the rest of the LSU group were forward trying to reduce the adult beverages on board.
    We had a great time signed up Fantasy May 31, 2014.

    In November we took a RCCL cruise in a Concierge suite, which had upgraded balcony furniture. We came back from the safety drill to find the man from the next cabin trying to drag our lounger across the wall between our balconies. I went all "mean mother" mode on him (which I didn't even realize I had modes) and told him he'd better put our furniture back. Apparently I snapped and wagged my finger quite a bit, and he got to jumping to obey.

    Parents and their childrens bathroom habbits amaze me! Just off the Magic 8-day. I was lounging by the Googy pool with my 3 children swimming and I see this little girl 8-9 talking with a what I assume was the mom accross the pool at the tables. The next thing I know she goes in the shower, pulls her swimsuit to the side and pees in the shower! :eek: Then when she was done gave a thumbs up to the mother still sitting in the chairs behind the shower. :sad2: Who instructs their child to do this stuff? There are 2 bathrooms close by this pool.

    Not see, but hear. On an October 2009 Magic cruise, our stateroom was located next to an extremely loud family. Constantly screaming at each other. I heard the father yelling one day, and then he slammed something in the room so violently that the wall shook and my head bounced off the headboard where I was resting it. The next morning, I heard the father screaming at one of the children followed very clearly by a loud smack to the child that I could hear through the wall.

    Families have arguments, of course, but this went on for days. It was clear the Dad was abusive, both physically and verbally. I felt awful for the children in that family.
