The most shocking thing....??

Recommended Posts

On the Jewel last March, we were having a meal in the buffet with out kids, but sitting at a regular table and not in the kids section BC a huge family (mostly adults) had taken it over. An older (10?) child of the group was coming back from the buffet and tossed his cookies all over the entrance to the kids area (which is right by the kids area). He left, and crew cleaned up, and not 10 minutes later, he came BACK and sat at a kids table with adults (parents?) and ate a huge plate of food.

 

I about puked myself and we did not return to the buffet that cruise. YUCK.

Thanks for that, yet another reason why I avoid the buffet at all costs.:D

We avoid buffets too. Have seen too many kids poking the food around, even putting food back from their plates with their fingers. Worse thing I saw was a woman changing a nappy at a table in the buffet. I think it would be a good idea to ban children unaccompanied in the buffet line and the ice cream stations etc.

Kids shouldn't be unsupervised at any time. The ships are not their home and should be treated like the shopping centre as most ships carry over 2000 strangers (pax and crew).

From my first cruise, it'd probably just be the Canadian family that was there. The young man in particular was very energetic and looking to party. It was near Christmas, and he was wearing a Santa hat and dancing, and his female companions were dancing in bikinis. Then he started physically dragging people onto the "dancefloor" to join them. This stood out because it was a HAL cruise, where most guests are middle aged (or more) and boring. :-) That same cruise had a very elderly couple where it was almost the blind leading the blind. The wife was struggling to help the husband down the stairs, even though she was in pretty crappy shape herself, and I thought damn, if he goes, she's going with him.

 

On the other cruise, some of us were on our balconies, watching them tie the lines in port. This one guy had a line behind him, and I thought ooh, he's going to trip over that. Sure enough, he takes a step backwards, trips on the line, and lands on his ass, and everyone on their balconies on that side erupted in applause.

In the Buffet, A lady does a blood sample on another older lady then, gave her an injection. :eek: :eek: :eek:

 

 

Probably for insulin. Some need to be taken within minutes of eating.

At Johnny Rockets on an RCI cruise, I saw a very large guy pick up his stomach, slide into the booth, and then place his stomach on top of the table :eek:

On my last cruise, which was in February on the Allure of the Seas, I witness a young woman urinating on the leather bench to the right of On Air on the Royal Promenade. Let me be clear, this was not a little girl, but rather a twenty or so year old female. She was laughing and then got up, with a big wet stain on her leggings, and ran away. I don't know if she couldn't hold it or what, but it was bizarre. My husband told the security guard who happened by shortly after, who then paged some cleaners to come and clean it up and sanitize. Yuck!
