Everybody wants a piece of the Captain.

Uh, People. That’s a U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel is his Dress Blues. Unless of course, it’s poser, but that is still an Army Dress Blue Uniform.
This is not a bad pic..classic family on a cruise with the usual background. They look happy–what’s so bad about it???
Obviously the hands are weird, so shame on the photographer! What was he/she thinking???
But at least they’re a good looking family 🙂 A lot of these pictures are awkward because the FAMILY is awkward–this family looks nice and WOW like they actually like each other!
Moral of the story? Fire the photographer.
Oh my gosh… that’s my Battatlion Commander. He is so busted.
I guess all dads go through that “Sgt. Pepper” phase.
lol, the only reason we did this one was because we didnt want to piss off the crazy russian photographer. and its the only one seths glasses didnt have glare.
Oddly enough I have a friend that worked on this ship… and it’s Carnival Cruise Line for anyone that’s wondering. Ecstasy is the name of the ship. I think they may need some new photographers… unless it was the family’s request…
well the boat is called ecstasyoh WAIT we already said that a hundred times.
3rd from the left…Hilary Clinton?
what can you expect from a ship named Ecstacy?
The reason they are all touching eachother is to complete the electrical circuit of the metal plate they are standing barefoot on. It connects to the camera and takes the picture when they are all in place. Sadly just after the photo was taken they were all electrocuted.
we just became friends
All HANDS on deck… Yikes!
let’s do… JAZZ HANDS!
let’s just hope no one put their hand on his heine!?
the girl in red looks like a young Laura Dern.
I’m impressed that they’re all balanced in that little lifeboat…………
Crusin’ with the Allstate family.
Please keep your hands above see-level.
HAHA! Love it…
my grandfather (the king of bad puns) just knocked on his casket in approval.
I just came off a cruise, and there was no way I was gonna cough up a big chunk o’change just to put a cornball photo on AFP. However, I sincerely thank those who did!!
Hands down, this is the cheesiest souvenir photo ever.
I just want to say that I can’t help focusing on those glasses.
They are not a good looking pair of specs. No sir.
The girl on the left in the blue, she looks like this other photo on this site. There was an elephant on the wall (a painting) and everyone was crowded around this chair. Anyone agree?
I think Isaac mixed the drinks a bit too strong for these folks.
We’ll have Gopher look into that.
…and that’s not Capt. Stubing!
Set a course for adventure, keep your mind on a new romance…….
The family that goes to prom together goes into therapy together…..
yes he is a lt. col in the us army in dress mess. the purple lapels show he is a part of the civil affair corps
Well, it does seem to be a very civil affair he’s having.
As they would say on “Family Feud”good answer! Good answer!
This is the photographer from hell. What kind of idiot photographer takes a shot like this that looks so frikkin’ ridiculous??? Unless they were rude to him/her at the start so he PURPOSELY made them look stupid…
“No tip? I’ll show them!”
k this totally looks photo shopped!!!
They’re not actually on the boat while it’s in the background.
Show some respect to the Grand Admiral of Carnivale Cruise Lines!
Ummm, have they been kicked off the ship? Do I smell mutiny?
(I would have let the hot daughters stay, for safety’s sake, of course.)
I think this was their way of making sure no one’s hands were accidentally somewhere awkward. The result was awkward.
I’ll bet it’s a family group and there are 2 married couples and the girl on the left is single.
I think it is the parents and their three children. The girl on the right (the older one) has a ring on, but the guy doesn’t (not to say that all married men wear their wedding rings or that they’re not an engaged couple). But they just look too much alike to be a couple.
Ok…all hands on deck!! I know, I know that was really bad! LOL
Actually that one made me churtle a bit.
Aw, you beat me to this comment.
That was the first thing I thought, LOL.
The most awkward part of the photo is the “hands.”
It is so, touching!!
Ship ecstasy will never sink with this crew.
I feel kinda weird with the whole ship name, and the brother is just waaaay too damn close to his sister.
It’s the Love Boat!
Exciting and new! 😀
Come aboard. We’re expecting you!
The Loooove boat soon will be making another run…Set your site on adventure your mind on a new romance…The Looooove boat….
Forget the capt. I need Isaac to bring me a cocktail!
…which one’s Gopher?
the daughters are HOT!!!!
Forget the daughters, that son is SMOKIN!
haha you’re welcome?
the daughter on the right is damn hot
I second that. Damn he’s cute.
Oh dear, that’s a WHOLE lotta touching!
Ok, we see the one hand(s) of everyone, but where is the other hand(s)?!
the really scarry thing is, i don’t evern think they’re related!
You know with the economy in the toilet it does not suprise me that Carnival cruises is trying new promotions to get back business…Promoting “family Fun” would have been a great hook, but It gets weird when they promote “Icky touch, bad touch” bowling, or “Naked Family Twister” on the poop deck…
This isn’t a promotion. It is a family photo taken on a cruise. The guy is not a captain… but a LT COL in the US Army… and with his family.
Woo drop the ancor Cap’n bringdown…
lol, you’ll walk the plank for that mistake! Arrrr
And we were s’posed to know that HOW?
See the sliver oak leaves pin on his sleeve? That’s the insignia for a Lt. Colonel.
Oh it’s a promotion. When they discovered that the Lt. Colonel was passing himself off as the Ship’s captain, Carnival Cruises gave him the ‘full bird’ and booted him off the ship at the next port of call.
LOL LOL LOL!!!
do you seriously expect me to believe that a US Arm Captain has PURPLE lapels on his uniform? Coast Guard, maybe…they’re kind of fake anyway, but ARMY? Puhleeze!
Hey! I was a Coast Guard brat.
go military brats!
Purple lapels are worn by US Army officers in the Civil Affairs branch.
So THAT’S where our tax dollars are going! Wish I could afford a trip like that, but I lost my house!
excuse me, but that is not where your tax dollars are going, okay? we saved up for a long time to go on this trip. its not like we just randomly decided to go on a cruise as if we have all this spare money laying around. so, before you go around making assumptions, educate yourself. and its probably your own fault you lost your house.
I won’t ask….
But he really wants you to
Yes, Purple Lapels. Every Army Branch has a color. Infantry – Light Blue, Armor/Cavalry – Yellow/Gold, Artillery – Red, Chaplains – Black, etc.
I believe Civil Affairs branch is purple, piped with white.
That’s not the name of the boat. That’s the flashing neon halo on the mom’s head.
I’ve been on that cruise ship before. I plainly remember the captain did not look like that. He is a fraud!! LOL!!
Yeah, the lavender lapels give it away.
I think the Captain is a Lt. Colonel in Mess Dress—but the boat name is wonderful!
the guy isn’t a Captain… his rank is clearly on his sleeve… funny anyway.
Well… it is called the Ecstacy Cruise Line… 🙂
Actually it is the name of the boat not the line. There are two twin boats named the Ecstasy and the Elation. I’ve been on the Elation i think… or the Ecstasy… i can’t remember which one… This is one of those campy tourist photos you can take on the boat during your free time before or after dinner i’m betting.
And nothing about the fact that the ship is named The Ecstasy?
I would like to bring everyone’s attention to the name of the boat. “Ecstasy.”
Ecstasy & Touchy McFeelerson’s —– well THAT explains it!
Wasn’t Touchy McFeelerson the mailman for Mr. Rogers?
Lol thanks, I wouldn’t have noticed it.
I have actually been on that ship before!!
Me Too!!! it took me to mexico
Yes…the cruiseline where the waiters pose with the loser single gal guests. Sorta like seat fillers at the Grammys.
