I was not going to comment on this thread but after reading everything i thought about sharing. It was my now wife and my first cruise on carnival. We hit the "adults only" pool/hot tub area and a young forgien couple and their kids decided to jump into the hot tub. Both young kids were eating dripping ice cream cones. We gave the parents a dirty look and got out of the hot tub and left the area. I dont think the parents had a clue. Both my wife and i could not belive how rude this behavior was. Other than that we had a great time.
