Most surprising thing seen on a cruise

Did you ever price a Disney cruise? For us no casino is a deal breaker.

Oh yeah.  My reply was more of a tongue-in-cheek response.

I don't know of anything Disney does that doesn't come at a premium.

But, I will have to admit that I am fond of being able to book a one-stop vacation at WDW.  We haven't been there in several years though.

LOL and for us we almost exclusively cruise Disney! We are taking our first Carnival cruise in 2021 (on the new Mardi Gras). Not planning on setting foot in the casino, it's not our thing. But that's what I love about cruising, alllllll the choices 🙂

Vista cruise last year - this family of 4 at the table next to us. You could tell the parents were probably hippies in a past life before they had kids. Dad had no shoes on. No socks. Nothing. 

When they played the little Italian song he got up and strutted around the dining room waving his napkin...all barefoot. 

I asked our waiter if shoes were mandatory and he just shrugged his shoulders.

We had YTD so we figured we wouldn't see them again but lo and behold, the next night, sat right next to them and still no shoes or socks on the dad. 

I looked at my BF and we politely asked for another table. We didn't see them again for the rest of the cruise.

Lots of fun comments - 

 

Sometimes the most surprising thing is bad....

 

Like other cruisers - I mean really bad.  

 

The buffet was not open yet, and 3 girls of this particular national origin (I think some large corporation must've booked half the ship) not only crossed the "closed" boundary, but opened the salad bar cover and used their hands to scoop salads.  Giant scoops.  Then threw it on the floor.  We watched, helplessly. The next day, they had people standing guard of the buffet.  Seriously?

 

But what took the cake was the jerk that came out of the elevator, 3 steps in front of his three females and literally pushed my husband out of their way.  Hands on. Pushed. 

 

Will NEVER cruise that company again - there should have been better management.

 

I have seen some pretty awesome things too -

speak up, I never would have allowed this, completely against health department rules in the states. I know the ship does not play by the same rules. I would have walked to the maitre'd and have them removed, period
