Default Funniest thing you've seen someone do while cruising

I've seen a guy in the middle of the ocean on a little tender going from the Nassau Port to Stingray City, screaming:


"How come I can't get any cell phone reception??!!!"

Both funny and serious. People over drinking.

Well, I don't know if you'd call it funny but as the ship was pulling away from the dock in St. Thomas, a taxi came to a screeching stop on the dock and 4 young adults jumped out of the taxi and ran towards the moving ship waving and screaming for the ship to stop. Everyone watching them from the ship were yelling, "run, run". They must have been to the beach because all they had on were bathing suits and flip-flops. Hope one of them had a credit card so they could buy clothes and book flights to the next destination.

The funniest thing I ever saw was while on the "private island" that RCCL "owned" and we were spending the day on it. There was this big guy walking towards the water intending to go snorkeling. Trouble was, he already had on his fins, mask in place, and snorkle already firmly in his mouth and had about 50 ft. of walking to do yet before reaching the water. I can still hear the flip, plop, flip, plop of the fins.....

I was just getting ready to send you a PM. Where have you been? Did you go back to the Dark Side again for more bashing?

Was on a 7 dayer in the Crribbean, there was this guy who wore a bath robe the whole 7 days. Needless to say he was drunk the whole 7 days. I never saw him on any of the islands but he was all over the ship.

you can always tell who the newbies are. They bring their own beach towels to the pool. They wear funny hats that blow away on the upper decks.

The last cruise I was on, an older gent wore a cardboard crown (like the ones at Burger King) the entire cruise. Everywhere I saw him - the pool, at the buffet, on deck. I heard someone ask him about it and he said something about him being in charge. I gave him a wide berth after that.

a couple of years ago, on a cruise to hawaii, there was a gentleman who never appeared anywhere without a stuffed owl on his shoulder -- lido, dining room, casino, etc. didn't matter.

Honeybear:

Don't worry "too" much about blending. There are plenty of veteran cruisers who make serious faux pauxs and can look pretty silly. Usually it's once they get off the ship and are in foreign ports.

A woman in China: "What do you mean you won't take American money? It's real. Unlike that funny stuff you have." Long time cruiser.

A couple in St. Thomas: "How do they know we're cruisers?" They were carrying NCL tote bags and had NCL shopping stickers on their lapels. They said they had cruised multiple times.

The worst part about taking your own towel to the pool is the space it takes up in your luggage. It's just more to carry.

Take care,
Mike

On a HAL cruise, saw a woman who wore the same outfit everyday. This included the little dutch cloth hats you get near the end of the cruise. She "cruised" the Lido every minute it was open, stuffing a large bag that she carried with any and all condiments from the tables. She looked and acted like a homeless person, but this was a 2 week HAL cruise. What we could never figure out is how she could afford the cruise, but still feel the need to take packets of mustard!

...and if the truth be known, she was probably some kind of an heiress to something....

Saw a woman on the Pride do a pole dance whilst taking off her clothes at the Lido party the second night. Took 'em all off too.

There were very few kids on it during Oct. It was a 50's - 60's Lido party and dance contest and such later at night. Went over well with the adults. I sort of got the idea she had done that a few times before.

My grandparents were millionaires but they were from the depression era. They lived in Florida in a mobile home with no a/c took paper towels from the bathrooms of burger king, dumped crackers in her purse at Denny's, etc. It's all in the environment that you grew up in or matured in. Of course they cruised on freighters in the 50's or 60's. OK now I miss my grandparents.

I was on a cruise with a group of 50 people and we were trying to get a group shot taken and this guy kept walking around with a blow up sex doll. I got a picture of it a one of the dance clubs later that night. That poor photographer.

Then there was me on my cruise last December. My husband insisted I go to the late show the first night and I insisted I go to bed. I had a 14 month old at home and my first trip away and I was tired. I sat in the chair at the theater and immediately passed out. Every time someone wanted to get in the row they had to wake me up. Two nights later we sat with someone at dinner who said "oh yeah you were the one who was sleeping."

Don't worry you are not the only who fell asleep the first night The only difference is I guess I didn't get caught by more than my BF

Are you trying to say they said something on stage. OMG I would have died. No I would have killed my husband for making me go.

I fell asleep during dinner on a cruise ship once! Now, I have chronic health problems, plus caught something in port or on the ship. This was the last night, so I didn't even realize that I had picked up an extra souvenir "bug". Knew I felt bad, but it was the last night, so I went to dinner. Was sailing with a friend, who kept having to elbow me. Ever since, I have wondered if I passed that bug on by not paying more attention to how I felt. I hope not!!!

overheard on last cruise

"what time is the midnight buffet?" I know strictly speaking the buffet may be open for viewing before midnight but come on!

husband: "Look, the restaurant is on 3 different levels"
wife: "What, all on one deck?"

We were on the Windspirit in the Carribean. It was to be a day on a deserted island (it think it was Tintamarie (?))- anyway it was going to be a grand day at the beach, with a picnic/barbeque. We pulled in and all got on the launches for a quick ride to the beach.
Riding in we all noticed about 8 private small sailboats there as well. When we got to the beach the 12 people from the small saiboats were all there and all "au nautral". Nothing like going skinny dipping only to have a tour bus pull up. Thankfully (for us) they were all young and very attractive.

I have one for you. A gal who decided to join in on the survivor at sea contest decided to go ahead despite what she was wearing....capri pants and a t-shirt.....Yup, when it came time to see who could slide down the big slide the quickest she somehow managed to get stuck four or five times. Moral--don't wear clothing while going down a waterslide.

One old man, very old, around 80ish decided he was going to get up and entertain is all with a dance. He got on the stage and proceeded to dance. He was old, scrawny, extremely wrinkled, wearing a baggy see all speedy, and what I imagine Hugh Hefner will look like at 80-90 or even 100 complete with the gaudy gold chains.

I was on an inside passage cruise with NCL and there was a guy on board with his Wife or Girlfriend. The funny thing is he was dressed as a baby, diaper and all for the entire 7 days. When asked why, he would only say

"I lost the bet"
