    One night my wife and I saw an older woman pushing a stroller around with a stuffed animal in it. We didn't think much of it, probably just watching her grand daughters stuff. But the next night we saw her again with the stroller and she was doing laps around the lobby. She was also talking to various crew members along the way saying things like "oh isn't he so cute", referring to the stuffed animal. We sat at the bar for a good long while watching.

    It was bizarre.

    I could swear I saw a poster here or a trip report or something who had a baby doll like that. Took it everywhere and even wanted to pay for the baby sitting. It was very bizarre.

    I remember reading about that a while back too. The poster said that the woman sat the stuffed animal at the dinner table and ordered food for it.

    There was some talk about this:


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXrNr1Cuypk

    What I learned from this, and all posts, is that it is a hobby for some.

    I always wondered what the stateroom hostess must of thought and here she answers:


    "They did come with us most of the time, but usually we wouldn't take them to breakfast so when the room people came in to clean we would leave them in their bed. The room people loved them, they met themÿ day one on the ship. So when they came in the room they weren't freaked out or anything :) lol The room person would actually move them and take them out of their bed so he could make it. And he would sit them back nicely and do cute little things with them. :)"

    I don't really care, except that, mom and grandma....babys don't put their hand over their heads like that when you are dressing them...drives me crazy when their feet and arms are all wrong....

    That was it lol. I never saw the second video though. People are crazy. I can't imagine being the stateroom host having to pretend that's cute. I think I'll tip more. They clearly have a tough job.

    I can't even imagine. :rolleyes2

    When we went on the Emerald Seas back when I was in 6th grade, my sister took her stuffed Curious George and our room steward would put him in cute places...but sis was SIX. It's understandable when you're SIX.

    This? Is just creepy. I wonder if the "babies" were listed in their cruise documents.

    I was walking to the MK parking lot on Thursday and saw a 30 something couple with baby carriers strapped to their chests...full of stuffed animals. I think all of us walking shook our heads.

    On our cruise last month, we saw a lady who had Barbie dolls that she'd pose in different outfits around the ship and photograph. And on a couple of occasions we've seen people (adults) who have a Duffy the Disney bear that they take with them to dinner and the shows, etc. in different outfits.

    But the strangest thing has to have been when we were on the Dream last August, there was a lady who wore a headband with Pluto ears everywhere she went, carried a stuffed Pluto and also wore Pluto t-shirts every time we saw her. She also carried a large plastic bone which we wondered what it was for, until she was ahead of us in the character greeting line for Pluto and was using it to "tease" Pluto. Even my kids were speechless.

    I wonder if the adoration from small children makes up for this type of disturbing behavior from adults. Poor CMs.

    On the Dream two weeks ago (got off the 2nd) Capt. Gus was giving his midday announcements and went into some great detail as to why he was sorry to report that the Mickey pool was temporarily closed for cleaning. He reminded the kids to not eat "too much hot dogs and ice cream" and to "take regular bathroom breaks--not in the pool!" It was rather entertaining...

    On a recent Carnival cruise I was sitting at the bar in the atrium watching the glass elevators. I saw a guy wearing a robe get on one of the elevators with three ladies (who I hope were with him!). As the elevator went up, he turned his back to the lobby, threw open his robe toward the ladies and shook...himself...in time with the music playing in the atrium. No idea if he was wearing anything underneath but it was pretty funny to watch.
