First time poster, longish (3 years?) time lurker.... Might as well make my first post here a good one!

So back in February my travel friend and I were on Vision of the Seas in port in Cozumel, Mexico. Oasis had parked next to us and from our top deck, Oasis was still way taller... Most people on Vision were just looking over in amazement at the massive ship.... My friend and I were judging peoples balconies. Ones that had the hot tub or people who hung hammocks up (!!!)

While it might be nice to have a balcony room and big open windows....You probably shouldn't walk butt-ass-naked, especially when you're in port and parked right next to another ship! As I was just looking across to the ship I suddenly saw this older women just kinda... walking around completely naked. (it was totally unintentional on my part.) But by the time I realized what I was seeing and told my friend about it, the women had walked back behind a wall in her room. Not wanting my friend to think I was joking or making it up we just waited a bit and maybe 30 seconds later she comes back out, still naked. And as we laugh, other people around us on our ship look across and also see it! Good lord, at least 20 people must have seen her from our ship and she likely had no idea.
(although my friend made a comment that maybe she knew what she was doing and it was some sort of voyeuristic fantasy she was pulling off, either way.. it was gross and unforgettable) haha

On the Breakaway a few weeks ago, I am on the hot tub with my wife and a few others. This guy and his girlfriend get in the hot tub. He is in his 70's I would guess, and she had to be close to his age. She clearly had "new" breasts since they were floating at the top of the tub, and very disproportionate for her body. The guy starts motorboating her in the hot tub (if anyone from CC was on this cruise I hope someone else saw them). I happened to see the distaff side's face, and she could not have been less interested but he kept going. She was looking around the tub acting bored.....
Fast forward 2 hours--I see the two of them on walking, and the woman recognizes me--she whispers in the man's ear and then they both look at me--it literally felt liek the Rear Window scene where Jimmy Stewart gets caught looking. I couldn't think of anything else to do, so I motorboated the air, laughed and kept going. Didn't see them again, but wish I had...

So, we boarded the on Monarc of the seas in 2009 and for some reason 90% of the cruise was from India. The movie Slamdog Millionaire was still hot in the media at that time. So we get in an elevator maxed with people (all from india) after 60 sec into it my husband says: "who wants to become a millionaire?!" (Just like the movie & in Indian accent). Embarrassing but unny 😂

Okay, so that doesn't sound so crazy. Well, how about if the gentleman wore the life vest during the entire cruise. Yep - he even wore it over his tuxedo at dinner on formal night. I guess you have to give him credit for being aboard even though he was scared of water.

These are all hysterical. Unfortunately our funniest experience was our own fault. We were cruising the Celebrity Infinity Alaska. My daughter was 10 (she is now 24 so it was some time ago) In my cabin there was the two of us, my godson who was 26 and his brother who was 22. The younger brother was supposed to be the Au Pair for my daughter as well as our friends who had a 13, 10 year old and 6 year old.
It was the first night and the Au Pair's job was to make sure all the kids got back from their kid's club. The 13 wasn't done until midnight. He staggered into our room about midnight roaring drunk (he had been trying the different martini's as he waited for her to finish) He said he couldn't find her. As he is talking, he slides down the down until he is sitting and begins vomiting. My daughter and I are in the bed. I told his brother he had to deal with it.
He got up and tried to get him in the shower and sobered up. Godson tried to clean up vomit with toilet paper. It clogs the toilet. Tried to give brother glass of water in shower, glass is dropped and shatters in shower. Daughter and I are now laughing hysterically. I give Godson $20 and tells him to call room steward.
Steward comes. Daughter and I are under covers giggling madly trying to pretend we are asleep. Godson suavely tells steward, "We have had a bit of a comedy of errors tonight, my brother is very seasick". I don't think steward bought it, but he fixed toilet, cleaned up glass and cleaned carpet.
When he leaves I call friends and daughter had come home early. Friends said, "Why are you laughing? Are you guys having a party?" I said not exactly.
The next day, it turned out Au Pair may have proposed to several pretty bartenders, they all knew him. He chose not to drink the rest of the cruise

Do I guess correctly that the young guy was of legal gambling age? I'm not sure which is worse, a grown man wearing that or someone letting their child in the casino like that...

Yes-he was gambling age- and idk why this didn't post sooner it was more like three weeks ago. The guy had an E cig and was blowing balls of smoke and other young adults thought it was great fun. He was seen by myself two separate nights. I thought maybe he had been eating mushrooms or something to actually be out and about, in such good humor.

As a man with a daughter, I hope this is me one day! Your dad did his job.

When I was 19 my grandmother took 2 of my brothers (20 and 17) and I on a new years cruise on the Celebrity century. On new years eve they were handing out free champagne and everyone proceeded to get inebriated. Eventually my older brother had to carry my grandmother back to her room.

As the night went on the seas started to get rough and the ship started rocking pretty good. The water in the pool was sloshing so much it seemed to be launching out the sides.

At one point I had to use the facilities, as I'm washing my hands I like over this guy is struggling with the door. It's a pull but every time he tries to pull the ship rocks so that it won't open and he thinks he's got the wrong direction. So then he starts to push but that doesn't work either. He keeps going back and forth for push to pull as the ship rocks side to side never getting the door to budge. You can see he's getting frustrated and confused but in his drunken state he has no clue what's going on. After a couple minutes he turns to my younger brother with this sad down beaten look on his face "can you help me? I can't get the door to work". My brother, who was also pretty drunk, proceeds to open the door on first try.

Even though I was 3 sheets to the wind I will never forget the look on the guys face.

I have soo many things, most are things I have done.. I am a bit ditzy.. here's the first one that comes to mind... we were on a transatlantic. I wanted some sun, maybe sans halter bikini top. Walked the upper swim deck, found some nice private loungers at the front of the ship. I sat down, unfastened my top and laid facedown butt pointing to the bow.. all I see through the dark tinted windows are white sneakers, running in sequence.. thank goodness I didn't whip that top off before I laid down!! So ya the time I gave the gym a teaser show

We were on RCL Radiance of the Sea and first night met the other couple assigned to our table. She was completely drunk and didn't wear her dentures to dinner and he was also inebriated and asked us to read the menu to them because he forgot his glasses. They were in their late 40's, he was an attorney. We definitely found the matre'd and requested a new table for the remainder of the cruise!:o

Once we were comin g into port in St. Thomas when my wife noticed a large group of men standing along the starboard railing. She said "I wonder what's going on over there?". So I walked over to see what had their attention and was I ever shocked. About 50 yards from our ship was a huge yacht, and on the top deck was a beautiful blonde in her birthday suit and was, well let's just say was having a "pleasureable" moment with herself. When I returned to my wife she asked "what were those guys looking at? I said "just a dolphin" and have never told her differently.
