DCL Confessions

I wore shorts to dinner in the main dining room.

Whew. That feels good to get off my chest.

Anyone else?

I carried my own wine, margarita or rum n coke all over the ship in my newly purchased DCL cup to shows or dinner anytime I wanted and never paid a cork fee. Asked for wine glasses and received a kit that included an adorable plastic travel collapsible cork screw with DCL on it. Wine glasses stayed, corkscrew came home.

Also got a promotional bag rate that you are supposed to get if you buy a certain amount...except she gave us that bag deal without buying ANYTHING else!

Celebrated our 10th anniversary on board 3 weeks early son we could be together as a family. Mom n dads 45th is in June but we all still celebrated both milestones on cruise!

I was wondering about wine glasses since I want to carry my own wine on board. Who/where did you ask for glasses?

I just asked for two glasses at one of the bars and took them back to the cabin. Just be sure and put them in a cupboard or your cabin steward will take them when they clean your cabin.

My boyfriend and I did that too back in April. We brought sports bottles, split our bottle of wine in half and brought it to the show before dinner. It was nice and really relaxing to have our favorite wine during the show

Room attendant. But I preferred my break free DCL souvenir cup anyway and rarely used them but others did.

You can ask at the bar or your room attendant. They will give you as many as you want.

We have your name now. You are no longer allowed on a cruise ship again.



OK, I give up.. I wore white socks with my dark suit on Formal Night and as soon as I got to my table I pulled off my coat and tie.

I wore slippers with hard soles to dinner in Alaska one night.... I figured they looked like shoes, and I was wearing long pants!

On the 1st morning we get room service/ ask for two coffee containers...
Then the rest of the cruise I go and fill them up myself every morning/ grap some creamer & suger..... aaahhhhhh!

nothing like a good cup of cup on a Disney ship looking at the ocean or what ever port we are at from our Veranda!!!

OK, I bring my own beer on board as well......
