I started cruising Carnival in 1981. Some of the events they had were male night gown contests, pillow fights on the greased pole by the pool, yard of beer drinking contest, and horse racing. You can imagine why some of those have gone by the wayside.

On the Carnival Pride in 2002, I had hooked up with the group from "another forum". We had a Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant and his wife with us. He had absolutely zero chest hair. He won the hairy chest contest just based on his posing and strutting - highlighted by his doing push-ups while spread eagled across a hot tub. I'll admit I did watch and cheer for that contest.

Oohrah! Go Marines!
Dave, my son is now a Gunnery Sergeant, and several years ago, he won the Iron Man contest at Camp Lejuene, NC....he set a record for the most pushups....662! His arms were sore for several weeks, and he couldn't even bend his elbows the next day. So, I guess we could have a pushup contest on the cruise..hahaha!

I never got into the Iron Mike thing during my tour. But then I was an air winger and we didn't like to run around doing a bunch of exercises.

Mr. October:

Glad to hear from you and that you are doing well...and staying busy!!!

Just wanted you to know that your karaoke friends missed you!!!

As for the games...we never participate in any of those. I have not seen a belly flop or hairy chest contest for years.

If you consider contests as a game, I seem to recall a certain Aretha performance.

On the Destiny they had a couple of things I hadn't seen before. One was a bathrobe party at the midnight buffet. The other was a scavenger hunt, based on the "Amazing Race", where the team of 4 people had to keep their arms interlocked while they found the stuff on their list. They also had a power bingo where the grand prize was a free 3-to-5 day cruise for two.

I am pretty good at keeping myself entertained. I am one who would rather sit on deck and people watch, or watch the waves. I enjoy the newlywed/not-so-newlywed game whenever I see it, though.
