Default Hairy Chest Contest not family oriented

On our carnival cruise a hairy chest contest was held poolside with several contestants. To say the least I would not want a video of this placed on my copy of the take home version to show family members. Some guys were respectable and some were not. One guy actually hunched the stair rail as he paraded down to the judges then approaching the first 2 judges he hunched them in the face. Are there any rules governing this contest?

That is how all events are.... UNPREDICATABLE...... this is what makes if fun. If you are looking for only FAMILY FUN, you might want to try Disney.

I hope you don't complain to Carnival, as this might deter the fun in the future.

Personally DW and I never liked this but lots of people do as you can not believe how many people are up on lido deck for it.

A jerk can show up anywhere.

We were on RCCL and they had a hairy legs competition. Some guy pulled down the back of his bathing suit to reveal his azz.

It was a good thing we had all seen azz before.

I will now get my dictionary out to look up hunch.

No one twists anyone's arm to go to these events on the ship. It draws a crowd because people laugh at the antics regardless of how dumb they are. I'm more offended by the thongs on people who should not even be wearing a bathing suit. Those IMHO are the eye sores. But heh, I'll never see them again but the image is firmly planted in my head.

Unfortunately I think it is the "jerks" who make for the fun, at least according to most people. We watched for a few minutes on our last cruise then wandered away. Takes all kinds.

I think the OP's point was whether or not it should be included on the video being sold. Fair question.

Maybe Carnival should leave of the x rated stuff, since who knows who sees the videos. For the ship stuff ... the guy who gets the most attention is who will win, so they are encouraged to be outrageous.

Exactly. The editor is to blame on this one.

I'm sorry, but not everything on the cruise has to be family-oriented. I travel with my kids too, so it's not like I don't understand, but the cruise is catering to a varied group of people. I think of the cruise as an adult activity with some things added for the kids.

It's a big ship- there are plenty of other places to take your little darlings when this event occurs.
I have never even seen one in person (only on the cabin TV) because I'd rather relax at the quiet adults only area than be crowded by the main pool.

Ok OP are you saying they shouldn't have the contest or it shouldn't be on the video? I'm confused.

You have a great point... and so do all the posters...

There are MANY MANY things going on and we can pick and choose... but the video, it's just one edition. I wonder if you can ask at the Guest services desk???

I have never had CARNIVAL be anything but helpful when I've asked for something specific. And with enough warning... I wonder if they could edit that out for you!!!

Maybe there should be two versions- X rated and Family Friendly. I don't think you could request a special edition just for you. You can always fast forward it.

Harry chest ? Humping ? I've seen worse.

I've seen thongs on a cruise so far up the azz you couldn't see the string .

Of course I had my shades on ,it was just too bright !

Thumbs down

I don't attend this 'event'. Don't care who does. However, I have simply walked through the pool area when it was going on - hey, just trying to get to the ice cream machine folks.

I'm not a fuddy-duddy, BUT, the guy I glanced at was humping over an older lady reclined in a deck lounger. Neither she nor her husband (?) were amused. That is just not appropriate behavior on a family cruise ship. No class. That's my take.

I'll just stay away as far as possible....and let those so inclined 'enjoy' the tacky performance.

Hit me, I can take it.

That certainly violates the "no face-hunching" clause in the hairy chest rulebook. But were they using American rules or Caribbean rules?
