    When we were tendering back to the Magic in Cabo San Lucas there was a man stark naked :eek: on his veranda. All of a sudden everyone on the tender boat was laughing and pointing up at the veranda. I really thought we were close enough to the ship that he would hear the commotion but obviously he didn't, he just kept walking around the veranda. Luckily his back was towards us! :scared1: So my 11yo DD says to me "What was he thinking?" I answer her "Obviously he wasn't" :confused3

    Yes this was at Serenity Bay about 5 feet from shore just as the water gets deep. When I said something to a CM she just kinda shrugged it off, she said that they see them all the time on the CM beach.

    YIKES

    As many cruises as you have been on I am surprised you have not had any weird, wild, shocking or funny experiences on DCL.....

    On the repo cruise there was a woman (I think the same one that was mentioned earlier by someone) who was stark naked in the ladies locker room....I am not a huge spa person, so I do not know what prococol is in that situation but everyone else I have ever seen in the locker room in 14 DCL cruises had a towel on.....it wasn't that she was just changing, but she was applying lotion all over her body with her leg up on a bench....now again, this may be perfectly acceptable but I was surprised to see it.

    I'm not sure if you'd consider this shocking... perhaps it falls more under the "rude people" category.

    We were standing in line to get our portrait (moon over water backdrop) taken. The photographer came up, placed a sign behind us that said "will return at 9:30" and asked if we'd inform anyone who tried to get in line after us that she was closing down.

    Not even two minutes later a family came up and I relayed the message. The wife got all snippy with me and said that they wouldn't notice someone else in line, and they stayed there. The photographer *did* notice and turned them away. The husband then got very loud and said, "You MUST take our picture now, we have reservations at 8:30". (Important to note that it was already 8:35). The photographer explained that she would need the remaining time to take care of the guests already in line and they'd be even later for their reservation if they stayed. The man got really nasty with her and stormed over to the guest services counter. I'm not sure what came out of it, we went into Triton's when she was done taking our picture.

    What even adds to the story is that we ran into the very same family on our last night during the "Disney Dreams" show. We got there early and found two good seats. All around us there were tons of available seats. The wife of Mr.Rude comes through with one of her daughters and sits right next to us (in two available seats). They are a family of 4. A few minutes later Mr.Rude comes along and asks if we'd move so that he and his other daughter can sit with his family. We were in aisle seats... there was no sliding. He wanted us to physically move to another location versus them finding 4 available seats (which could be found all around us... even on the very next row)! The nerve!:eek:

    I have to say I hope you did not move.

    This is the funniest thread....I have truly enjoyed reading it....

    On our second DCL on debarkment day we were waiting patiently in line for our shuttle back tot he Rad and a gentleman broke line and while doing it he pushed my son down. MY son was bleeding and he never once said I am sorry and YES he saw what he did. He basically shoved DS out of his way in order to jump on the shuttle. While making the comment he was not waiting in that line and rushing his family onto the shuttle. I had to doctor my DS then 9 because he knees were bloody.

    At AK at WDW this June we had road the Kali Rapid ride four times in a row. I was very soaked. We then proceed to get on the train to go over to the animals. We had a great time over there...we get in line to go back and we are the three family in line. When the train comes everyone is pushing to get on the train. My family winds up having to sit in three different locations. Well this was rude, but what happened on the ride back to me takes the cake :cake: I sit down, remember I am still quite wet. When I sit down because the train is so crowded we are all quite snug and my jean shorts touch the lady next to me. She slaps me and tells me oooo you are wet. Remember DH is quite a ways away from me. All he hears is me being very rude to this lady. I told him what she had done and he was shocked.

    I know I'm an overprotective Mom, but this guy would have been kept there and apologized all day to my child. Injuring a child to save you a couple of minutes in a line is completely unacceptable.

    I think one of the craziest things I ever saw was on Carnival. There were about 4-5 security people chasing a man down the hallway and finally they caught him and threw him to the ground and then pulled him into a cabin. He was under house arrest for the rest of the cruise. Never did find out what he did, but there were of course a lot of rumours going around as there always are when something like that happens. I think the story kept getting bigger and bigger as the week passed.

    What I have to wonder is...where did he think he was going to go? :rotfl:

    I mean, you pretty much have a 360 degree dead end.

    These stories are amazing. But the rude stories never stop to amaze.

    Exactly, but the biggest rumour was that he had attacked someone in their cabin, so that proves he aint the brightest bulb to begin with. :guilty:

    I guess that IS rather surprising. In 45 cruises on DCL, my experiences have been mostly low-key. We've met our share of rude people (my favorite was the lone teenager who was "saving" the entire front row for Disney Dreams...I just told him "That's not allowed" and parked my butt and he stormed off), but not too many shocking experiences unless you count the stories I've heard at "Match Your Mate." The best from MYM were the couple honeymooning on the Magic because they'd met onboard the year before and and...uh, become REALLY close on the deck 7 verandah, and the couple that had been married for 50 years and told about how they were having fun in their car on a backroad when an entire troop of Boy Scouts appeared...they were parked on a hiking trail!

    As for the locker room thing, in our health club it's very common for women to talk around undresses or only partially covered by a towel. I haven't seen that on the ship, but it wouldn't surprise me.

    Wow... both you and your son were physically assaulted... that's just unbelievable. These are things that people can go to jail for. Normally, I'd get ahold of security and the police and press charges, but that's not something I want to drag me down on a vacation. Still, better than me taking things into my own hands. Unbelievable.

    Re: the attention-loving woman in Rockin' Bar D. She was back on '80s night, and somehow got herself included in the Gloria Gaynor singing competition. Rather than lip-synch, though, she did a striptease, whipping off her gold-lame vest-type top (fortunately, she did have on another shirt underneath, but still). The host--who was clearly aware of her behavior throughout the cruise--said "Maam, this is the Disney Magic, not the Carnival Ecstasy."

    We had a nickname for her, referencing her spotlight-seeking ways, but I can't say it on a family board. At first we joked about her, but by the end of the cruise, it just seemed kind of pathetic.
