NO- ANYTHING at the bar (even stuff that's free elsewhere- soft drinks, smoothies, drinks both "leaded" and "unleaded"-) incurs a charge with automatic 15% gratuity.
Here's something I didn't know until we read about it on the DIS before our our 4th cruise... DCL is the only lines I'm aware of that allows guests to bring their own alcohol on board (to consume in private). Wine, beer and hard liquor are all OK. You may also bring your bottle of wine to dinner and simply pay a $20 corkage fee.

We're partial to Vanilla Rum and Coke. We generally stop in Orlando on the way to the ship. Last cruise our cabin attendant noticed the bottle and magically a bucket of ice appeared.

Alcohol purchased in duty-free is not available to consume on board. It is delivered to your cabin in time for packing.

Respect the policy and we can continue to enjoy this unique DCL privilege FAQs Preparing for your cruise - Alcohol onboard policy

I'll ask and if they say no, I'll be prepared to take one away.
Rules are rules.
Definitely ask. When I was on the Wonder this summer, I brought our two items to the desk and asked how many items were allowed and I was told *three* items were allowed per cabin. (I still only had two items though.)

They are pretty lenient. They just don't want people coming in with towns of stuff. 2-3 items is the standard but they will allow more especially if you have more guest in your room.

I think my friend is cruising with you. Your name looks familiar because we are doing our FE gifts together and I saw her list. Are you on the Dream Feb 24th? Anyways, they want a cabana too but they are sold out online. I would check GS first thing when you board. Did you get an early arrival time? You can choose your boarding time.

Oh, that's great! I will let her know. She is traveling with 2 children (one is infant) and really wanted the cabana for shade. Hopefully she can get one too. Who did you call?

Question... You just take colored sharpie markers with? And how do the items wash, like say you had a shirt signed or a tote? Does it fade?

That being said, there have been reports here that people have had 1 item per person in room signed recently.
We were just on the NYE Fantasy cruise (that was sold out) With the larger ships we were told only 1 item per kid (this was our 6th DCL cruise and we've had 6 items signed before with 2 kids and no problems on magic/wonder)
Guest Services took our 3 tshirts but said they couldnt guarantee more than 2 would be signed. In the end they signed all 3...
Think it depends on who you talk to, how crowded your cruise is and their mood at the time ;-)

I would check on Etsy. There are a couple of vendors there that make super cute pillowcases.

I love Passporter but they seem to have problems meeting their publishing dates. I waited nearly all year last year for the 2012 DCL edition to be released. It was originally due to be published in like February, which was then pushed to May, and then July, and then September before finally being published in November.

I read that they are coming out with the 2013 edition mostly to update the latest itineraries and ports of call.

We're on that cruise too and also have an infant. We also wanted to get a cabana for shade. I'm hoping we can get on some sort of waiting list.
