Your TR was hilarious - inspired me to write my own, actually. My pics are more food porn-y, though Thanks for the tip about picking up wine glasses from the bartenders - I was glad not to drink wine out of the on the rocks glasses from the stateroom......that would be a college memory I wouldn't want to re-live......(Who are we kidding? I drank Franzia, Wild Vines, and Arbor Mist out of plastic cups in college!) Thanks again for the tip - we even took our own glasses of wine into Palo!

You had me at food-porn. I'm heading over to your TR now to read it.

It was really difficult for my wife to stay on the ship. If she did not have the spa massage booked, I'm sure we would have had to at least go to the straw market.
Loved your trip report. How much in advance do they normally release the resident rates?

We did an New Years on HAL last year!! We had a great time and the price was less than half of DCL. The Ryndam was a little smaller, no castaway. But it was a lot of fun. The food was better then DCL and the waflles though not mickey shapped were delicious!!!

The two times we've gotten the FL resident rate, it came out about 2 months before the cruise. Once we paid full price and the deal came out after, but our TA was watching and rebooked for us and we got a rebate.

This TR was ok, and I appreciated the free pics, but it would have been better if only you had thrown in some sarcasm. And maybe a bit of irreverent humor.

And I would love to know what your wife thinks the "D" in DH stands for...

Come back funny guy always looking for the DOTD I wish my hubby could sail with you, he really would stop all the complaining and just have a DOTD's!

Thanks again and your fans want more!!!

We've been on cruises since, just not Disney - blasphemy. But thanks for reading despite the age of the TR. I still use the DOTD glasses around the pool.

She pretty much figured it was not Darling or Dear the first time I called her my DW.

Hilarious. That's what this trip report is, freaking hilarious. So tell us, when is the next one, seriously, does not matter if its another cruise line, we all need the laugh. You type what we're all thinking, absolutely loved the honesty, every word. So c'mon, another one please, and do provide the link when it's done, thanks.
