The subject of the 400+ thread wasn't anything but "Conquest 09/28/03." It was just a bunch of us that got to know one another before the cruise, thanks to this website. We ended up doing excursions, etc,. and made some friendships that we'll remember forever.
OMG LMAO @ sidey, mr utley!! toooooooo dang funny. i will post pics, but not from the funnel deck or of my new tatoo thanks so much beccabt, i have appreciated all your informative and funny input. will take sunscreen and a good attitude and plenty of fun ship specials to that tops optional deck.
what bothers is that those of you who are complaining about 'staring' are always stereotyping the starer as a pervert and most especially OLD, GRAY, HAIRY.
As a man of almost 57 years and often walking on cruise ships alone because my wife likes to sleep on her vacation (she deserves it, and needs it), I am offendended. I don't care whether I love breasts or hate seeing them, I resent the fact. I haven't seen one of you complainers mention about 20 or 30 something starers.
Perhaps, as a previous post put it, maybe you women should get together and get carnival to create a female only sundeck, WITH A GIGANTIC WALL AROUND IT.
.My apologies to the person who posted before me and from whom I posted this. This was not personal to you, but in general from reading this thread. Great cruising to you!!
First of all, I am sorry if it seems like I stereotyped!!! I ussually make a point of not doing it. It just so happened that the guy who stared at the group of us was old, and had white hair all over his body. I was just describing the incident, I am very graphic you see.
Now, "why is it my lucky day?" you ask? well it just so happen that I was on the Glory last week and of course visited the tops optional deck a couple of times to sunbathe. This time I chose not to take my top off because the deck was located right by the volleyball and basketball court and there was a teen volleyball tournament the both days I was there... Well we did get sporadic visits from men who would just go up the stairs, look around... stand for a minute or two by the railings (as if they were just checking out the ocean, you know) turn around and survey for naked boobies.... Since there were not many topless women, they would leave.
And ALAS! There were A LOT of young men doing it!!!! There were white, black, hairy, hair-less, young, old, tall and small!! --- See! my boobs don't discriminate!
The problem with us old, gray, hairy (or hairless) dudes is we still feel like young bucks on the inside and are not enamoured of being reminded of our true present state. I don't think it makes us any more perverted than the young guys when we seek visual stimuli, but there is something depressing about still trying to get your kicks in this manner with all the life experience you have behind you.
Thanks for the clarification. I guess that I got a little defensi ve there, sorry. Hope you had a terrific cruise. By the way, I did enjoy the kidding on this thread that if you want to look then buy her/them drinks.
Lastly, it can be repeated from someone else that there are OTHER quiet places on the newer ships. I quess what I was orignially looking for was a sky deck in order to watch the stars.
