Funniest Cruise Story – Winners
We asked our users to submit their funniest cruise story and want to thank all of those that sent one in!
#1 – Funniest Cruise Story
By – Heidi H
On our final night on Carnival Magic, my sister in law walked right into a column. It was probably about 18-24 inches in diameter, so it didn’t come out of nowhere. We looked back when we heard the ‘smack’ of her face plant and crash and shatter of her glass of beer from Red Frog Pub. She was ok, and we had a good laugh. We even have it on video, it’s priceless! I still giggle just thinking about it.
#2 – Funniest Cruise Story – Key West Berlin?
By – Ron V
We were in Key West shopping for Perfume, the guy tells me the bottle of perfume is $65.00 dollars, in my smart voice I say “I can buy that cheaper in the US”, the salesman looks at me kinda funny and says “sir you’re in the US”, I slowly retreated out the door.
#3 – Funniest Cruise Story – The Flowrider
By – Leah
On the Oasis learning how to do the Flowrider. I was on my tummy doing pretty good just staying on until I fell off. I stood up and my entire bathing suit was off!!! I was standing up naked and all I could do was laugh. Thank goodness the guy running it came over with the board to cover me up sort of until they could find my swimsuit. Ugh!
#4 – Funniest Cruise Story – Foreign Greeting
By – Joan H
We were on the Oasis sailing with another couple and we were looking for them in the solarium. We saw the woman lying out in the sun on a lounger so my husband snuck up and stuck his finger in her ear. Well, it wasn’t our friend. It looked just like her, so it was very embarrassing when she jumped up and started talking fast and loud in a different language.
Honorable Mention #1 – Nasty Nassau Goodbye
By – Chris M
New to Cruising last year. I stood on my Balcony as the Carnival Valor was leaving the port in the Bahamas thinking these have to be the friendliest people in the whole world because they were waving very strongly as we were departing…I was waving just as strongly back with a big smile on my face. I didn’t realize they were passengers that had missed the onboard timeline..ouch felt like an idiot…Chris
Honorable Mention #2 – Locomotive of the Seas
By – Patti
On one of our cruises, my mom came along….one night, we meet up with the captain outside of the theater…he asked how everything was and we said fine, but my mom had a question for him….she wanted to know how much coal they go through in a week!!!! i almost fell over, laughing so hard!!! and they say out of the mouths of babes….think its out of the mouths on moms!!!!
Honorable Mention #3 – Key/Clue-Less
By – Virginia D
My aunt forgot her room key on the Enchantment of the Seas so the room attendant Judy asked what her cabin # was and she showed her the card (which is really the room key!!) and Judy proceeded to unlock the cabin for her with the master key. All awhile neither of them realizing that my aunt was holding the key card the whole time! LOL smiling…..
