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?

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

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!

We stock up on the big movie sized candy my kids can eat (see allergies) on shore at target for a dollar and bring that to the nightly shows rather than standing there reading ingredients (too much work while I'm on vacation) then paying a bazillion dollars (too cheap to do this when DD will eat one then ask why they don't taste like regular sour patch kids) for the snacks at preludes.

My 2 DD's and I have very long, very thick hair. I asked our room attendant for an extra bottle of shampoo & conditioner the first night. Every night after that, he brought us 2 to 3 extra sets! I kept them instead of returning them....love that stuff!

Lol... this is more my wife than me... when we first visited the rainforest room on our first cruise, she came out in her housecoat and quickly asked under her breath, "should I be wearing a bathing suit"??

I explained to her, yes... these are coed, public facilities... She quickly ducked back in to the changeroom!

We also strongly considered hostnapping our stateroom host. Such a nice guy.

With Disney unlike other cruise lines, we are allowed to bring our drinks on (not like having to sneak it on in Listerine bottles etc.) so not much of a confessional there. But some people insist you shouldn't bring your own to dinner. Our waiters never said a peep. We passed on the cork fee to their tips instead...

We ordered coffee, oj and cranberry juice from breakfast room service. We had asked or room attendant to have ice in our room every afternoon. So in the morning we would sick the oj and cranberry juice in the grudge and in the afternoon DH would make screw drivers for himself and cape cods for me. We even ordered sliced limes for my drinks and for the caronas he carried on board. It was like having our own private bar in our room lol. We would make or drinks and take it with us to Evolutions every night

LOL...I've worn shorts to dinner so many times I've lost count. I think I figured that out on the third cruise, that they really don't care. I don't do it on Formal night, but any other night, heck yeah!
