Have you ever seen anything completely shocking and unexpected on a cruise? This might be fun!

That being said, there was the cruise of naked sailors in Key West that went by the Magic just as sunset finished. I was quite surprised to see that (and have the pictures to prove it )

The most shocking and unexpected thing I've ever seen on a DCL cruise is that pesky dock at Port Canaveral at 6.000am on a Saturday morning!
On the Magic this past Sept we were quite shocked to find a young woman on board who liked thong underwear, short flying skirts and to dance. Why is all this shocking - I guess because our group wasn't into being "mooned" during crazy karaoke.
While there's a sign that states " no sunbathing" on the deck outside of Palo, let's just say that they should add "PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO EAT IN THERE!!"
When you're outside of the restaurant, you can't see in, but you can sure see out. We've seen some less than flattering bathing suits strolling by while enjoying our crab legs. (And why oh why do they always have to start tugging at them thinking no one's around??)
In Key West we were walking down by the butterfly observatory and there was a naked woman walking dow nthe street walking a dog...then as we walked down a side street there was a dock with MANY naked people out having drinks...we left that area pretty quick LOL.
Eating brunch in Palo there was an overweight older man in a tiny bathing suit with a lot of back hair walking around the deck..he must have passed 3 times while we were eating!!
Not shocking, but it is a favorite to tell.
We were walking to our excursion in Nassau about 9 am. We saw a man making his own version of a rum and coke. He took a sip of coke from the can and then "added" the rum with a second sip from a bottle.
While sitting peacefully by the Mickey Pool watching and photographing my children as they went down the slide I was privy to a very interesting conversation:
Kid (about three): Mom, I have to go to the bathroom.
Mom: Number one or two?
Kid: Number one
Mom: Then go in the pool.
Time to go to the Goofy pool!
We saw a naked man on his balcony when we docked at Cozumel -- I think it was a Carnival ship. My 4 year old daughter thought that was the entertainment for the day.
We also saw some very hairy men in Speedos outside of Palo's while we brunched. That was a good thing, though -- it stopped me from eating more.
I also echo- EWWWWWWWWW!
TartanFan- Hilarious! (But sadly true! )
Ah...so many stories.....so little board space!
Here are two favorites:
About 10 years ago my sisters and I (4 single twenty somethings) went on a cruise. It was the best cruise we've ever been on. We all "hooked up" with some of the casino and entertainment staff, each of us having ourselves a "date" one evening. While walking along a deserted promenade deck in the moonlight, we decided to stop a the railing and watch the water (something I LOVE to do at night on a ship). While standing there leaning on the rail, having a nice romantic moment, something floats by in the water. We couldn't get a good look at it, just a glimpse. As we stood there, another came by, we realized it was a "Frozen Chicken"! then a few more floated by and a few heads of cabbage and other miscellaneous moonlit foodstuffs. We go the giggles so hard at the floating chickens that the mood was ruined for the rest of the night. We laughed our behinds off telling the story of the Moonlit chickens. (Apparently the cruise line dumped the "bio" stuff in the water when it was too old to serve).
The following year, different cruise line.....same group, had met a few "guys" on board. The gang of about 7 of us decided one evening at about 2 am to explore the "staff only" areas of the ship. We ended up in the theater at about 3 am. The stage was well lit, and we decided to put on a few little performances (singing, a few dance steps, comedy routines, etc.) One by one we performed to an audience of six. Suddenly we realized one of the guys was missing. (He was a doctor by the way, not a thug or anything). The next thing you know, here comes "Dr. John" down the stage stairs wearing one of the huge headdresses from one of the Vegas shows. This thing was about 5 ft. tall with silver sequins and huge white plumes of feathers. He strutted his stuff while we all rolled in the aisles. It was a riot.
Now, those were some fun cruises.
I was out on our verandah late one evening about midnight when 2 people came outside on the verandah next store in the Walt Disney suite. They kept sticking their heads way over the verandah so I could see they were a young couple and they should have seen me.
Well, after a few minutes it was obvious that they were having a little "fun" if you know what I mean. They were not being discrete at all about it. Then there was a loud crash complete with breaking glass and a loud "Oh sh**!!" I'm not sure exactly what happened but it must have ruined the mood as they quickly left.
On the same cruise we used Captain Marvin's for Stingray City. On the way back a young boy got sick and vomited on the upper deck. No, they did not hang him over the railing - he vomited on the floor of the upper deck. Mom and dad decided to get some water and wash it away. Off course all this did was wash it to the back of the upper deck were it then rained down on the lower deck. Look out below!!!!
oh noooooo! Curse my weak stomach! Just reading about that at 8 am is enough to make me queasy...
True story! A long, long time ago, when I was a wee little tike, I was taking swimming lessons and the local Y. I got out of the pool and told my mom the same thing - I needed to go to the bathroom. She was impatient and said " go in the pool." So I walked over to the edge of the pool, dropped my drawers, and took a whiz!
The swimming instructor was shocked and said "little boy, why are you doing that?" I pointed to my mom and replied, "Mommy told me to." Mom gathered me up and sheepishly left.
Mom was never impatient with me again.
During our last "shortened" cruise on the 9/4 oops 9/7 cruise....we went to cozumel. We went to Playa Sol Beach. While we are all sitting in the sun......a little boy in a spedo comes and stands right in front of us pulls out his yoohoo and pees right in front of me! After that....he cover his pee up with some sand and walks back to his seat and acts like nothing was wrong! I just gave him some looks for a few seconds! I think that is just GROSS!!! He was about 7.
The mother or father did nothing about it!
On a Disney booked excursion ( I know DCL doesn't have all control but some discretion re who they use would be nice) we encountered a little more island experience than I would have liked.
The crew on the catamaran announced we were on an island that didn't require clothing and if anyone would like they were more than welcome to remove some. A group of 3 or 4 women decided they would rather sunbath without, and proceded to remove tops. not an experience I needed with my 10 & 12 yr olds observing. (I didn't wait to see if they removed any more, we changed seats.)
You do know that every time I'm in the soda aisle at the supermarket from now on that I'll start giggling when I spot the Yoo Hoo.
At Orient Beach on St. Maarten, we saw a ways down the beach a harry, tubby "white" guy that decided to do the beach neked. The reason I say he was a "white" guy is because he was mostly white with a nice Flaming Red stripe across "where the sun don't shine" We don't know how he managed to sit down for the next week. Fortunately we didn't see his front side, but I imagine that it was just a red as the backside. And speaking as a guy, I can't imagine how THAT feels!
Sounds like something a DOG would do!!!!
