Haha I must not have known this was a no-no! I wore slack-type capris with a blouse to palo, and didn't feel out of place. Although it was brunch....does that matter?

The Palo dress code does specify "no capris", however many people read the dress code as what's required for dinner. And the dress for brunch is a bit less formal, for the most part.

That said, capris may or may not be allowed, depending on the maitre'de working the door. I've seen them admitted, and I've seen them turned away.

If you bring capris for brunch at Palo, be sure you have a backup, if you need it.

I was on the Dream last month, and actually called Palo right before our dinner, I asked if capris are acceptable...her response was, yes, just not jean capris. So there you have it!

I'm not sure I want to confess my "Bad PArent of the Year" incident....but here goes.
After losing my dear mother in law to brain cancer at 63, and 10 months later dear father in law to a heart attack at age 67 - my family decided we needed a lot of Magic. So we took a much needed vacation and spent a week at WDW followed by a week on the Magic EC in Jan 2011 trip. The week on the cruise we spent with good friends of dh's from the military who had a ds a year older than my dd and they had a dd a year older then my ds.
In AP on the last night (we had late seating), I encouraged my ds 3 1/2 to eat all his pasta and I would buy him the big toy he wanted from the store. He is not a good eater and every night the servers would bring our friends daughter 2 meals and she would eat like a pro while ds would not eat hardly anything. So on the last night, I encouraged him - eat all your pasta and you will have the big toy! I can't recall now what the toy was...so ds was so excited. He ate every piece of macaroni. The server commented how proud he was, we all laughed and cheered him on.....UNTIL.....ds started to vomit. Projectile vomit..
all the macaroni all over. EVERYWHERE. on his clothes, on me, on his plate, on the table cloth...I was mortified. The adults hadn't even been served meals yet. Our friends thought it was so funny. DS was fine, he just ate too fast. I felt horrible. Worse was our luggage was put out and already gone, all we had was our clothes for the next day.
I scooped him up and headed for the stateroom. The server followed me wanting to make it right, asking to sent my meal there but I was already racing out. What happened after I left, I know because our friends took lots of pictures. Men in suits and helmets came to the table; SPACE MEN they looked like - biohazard suits came to the table to clean up the mess and replace the linens, the dishes and all the silverware. Then they reset the table and all the food. Apparently no one from the other tables even flinched.
DS and I cleaned up, we went straight to the store and bought the toy, and then headed back to the dining room - I could barely look at anyone. But the servers were so happy to see us, they welcomed ds and quickly brought food out and acted like nothing happened.
The kids still talk about the "Space Man" at dinner.....
And I never use bribes for eating anymore - learned my lesson

Hope people don't find it unacceptable to walk around with my super big-gulp mug and empty unfinished drinks lying around to save money from buying alcoholic drinks.

This is one of my favorite threads. Ever.

My confession:

On our recent Dream 4 night cruise, I spent the majority of the day at the Conched Out Bar making friends with the bartenders. When someone would come up and order a drink during the 2 for 1 time period... many times, they wouldn't want the additional drink.

I left the bar slightly... okay, VERY tipsy. Luckily, by the time I reached the ship, it had worn off. Until I went to Meridian that night where my wife and I watched Castaway Cay float away while Alex poured us martini after martini.

So... I guess what I'm confessing to is not remembering dinner at all that night.

I wore crocs to dinner on formal night and my dress wasn't long enough to hide them.

Can't tell I'm in flip flops here, but I am standing on my tip toes so the front of my dress wasn't on the ground...
Your dress us stunning!! Where did you get it?? I always have an issue as to where to go to get a dress for formal night. Was looking for something different and this dress is amazing. Do they sell more like this? Very nice!
