That’s JUST dumb !!

What are some of the dumbest things that you’ve seen people do on a cruise?

Ive seen people that hung hangers on the fire 🔥 system and made the water 💦 flood the room.

Ive also seen people try to crawl from one balcony to another. Has anyone on your cruise been misbehaving?

We haven’t cruised as often as many forum members, and we’ve only been with Carnival so far, but we’ve never seen any misbehaving/dumb actions, nor have we seen any drunk partiers on the Fun ships.

On our first cruise Carnival Tropicale, there were tapestries that hung down from the top passenger deck to the bottom passenger deck in the stairwell. Some teens decided to climb over and ride them down. They suffered minor injuries and we're confined to their cabins. Not too smart.


Heard lots of stories but never witnessed any dumb acts.

Just fools sitting on the rails for "THAT" fabulous photo. My DH says "you can't fix stupid!"

LOL! Wow. You’re right !! Smh

Agreed. stupid things, not so much...I find watching passengers with makeup and heavy bling in hot tubs amusing...but rude things...all the time....which explains, (among other reasons) why we moved south, and cruise out of New Orleans, and rarely, Galveston. The majority of folks on those ships are southerners, or midwestern types...usually have a sense of civility about em...its in the genes...last time we cruised northern, it was Alaska...couldn't put our finger on the difference, but it was hit us sitting with the equally rude passengers on the flight back...yankees… I feel better....

On our last cruise we were coming back to the ship on the tender and right above where the tender docks was a child .. maybe 3 or 4 yrs old standing on a chair that was pulled over to the balcony railing hanging over the balcony watching the tenders come in ... with not an adult in sight. We were so concerned the first thing we did once on the ship was alert security to this.

While it's not that big of a deal.. We've all seen pigs at the buffet over load the plate and not eat half of it. That's stupid and wasteful.

I agree...but that's what happens at buffets all over, unfortunately.....ever watch what happens at a Chinese buffet??? I try not to becuz I enjoy the stuff so much...I get up 2-3 times to try different dishes...then theres the folks who might as well be better off with a cafeteria tray and a shovel instead of a plate..
