Craziest thing You've ever seen happen on a Cruiseship?

BTW and OT I've told the mothers of our grandchildren (boys and girls) that if anyone gets a Ken or Barbie doll their college fund goes away.

 

How wonderful of you to interfere with their parenting.  I bet you're very well-liked by those mothers. /sarc 

 

As for standards of decorum, there ARE standards.  I would not expect to see the same things on a Spring Break Carnival cruise as on an off-season Princess cruise.  Have some decency, especially when there are children aboard.  Or take a Bare Necessities cruise and don't worry about it -- the standards are different based on the demographic.  We should all have some respect for others.

I just wish the search worked better. I have read the FAQ info and other help, but it still can be very frustrating.

I was on a food site where the search function sucked.  We all learned to Google.  For instance "cruise critic food on princess."

You can also limit a Google search to a single website.

 

Type site: and the site id.


So site:boards.cruisecritic.com [then your search terms]  will search only the Cruise Critic forums.

Ooh, thanks a lot for that tip.  That's going to come in handy on a couple of sites.

Not a cruise ship, but the night ferry from Jersey back to the UK.

The pilot boat came out to escort us, then it caught fire.  They had a fire in the engine compartment.  The ferry stopped and went into rescue mode.  Announcements to staff of what to do and for us to sit down and keep out the way.  Our crew fired off flares and started launching a boat.  They also got fire equipment and hoses out.  Meanwhile the RNLI (the UK lifeboat service) sent out one of tie inflatables - wow! can those things move!

By the time the RNLI got to the pilot boat, the crew of the pilot boat had put the fire out.  Our ferry then started up again and we carried on without a pilot.

 

Because it was night time it was particularly interesting, with the fire and flares and who knew the RNLI boats have a blue flashing light like the emergency services?
