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!

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

I've seen the "space men" before. There was a mother/daughter pair at my table at dinner and the girl was SO seasick. I felt so bad for her. The cast members were extremely quick and professional. They moved the other four of us to another table, got us all new beverages/bread/anything we wanted and then quickly removed everything from the table and cleaned. Before we received dessert our former table was like new and set for the next meal. Amazing.

Goodness, we've been on two without the kids since they were born. Told them where we were. And that it was a special anniversary date. They know we love each other very much and need alone time occasionally.
And that if they're very good for grandma while we're gone then next time we might take them. So far it's worked.

At a champagne tasting event, we noticed the table next to us (4 ladies) hadn't touched their last 2 glasses of champagne (8 total glasses!) so after it ended and they left, we ran over to their table like vultures scavenging and drank the leftover champagne! No shame!

Glad that works for you

Our children know we take trips for special occasions however, since they were not home while we were gone we really saw no reason to tell them we were sailing DCL without them.

My confession

On our last Dream cruise, DH and I were sound asleep 2 hours before DS 14 came "home" from Vibe. He came in just as I woke up at 2am to go to the bathroom, and we didn't know he wasn't there.

Bad mom!

I figure once they're slightly older it'll be harder as they'll realize we could take then with us.

Yeah, my boys are 10 & 11 and would have been very upset if they had known we were going on the Dream without them. We are a blended family and my son was with his dad and my stepson was with his mom so it worked out to where we didn't have to tell them.

We would make or drinks and take it with us to Evolutions every night

This is a great idea.

Okay, twist my arm. I don't smoke but it didn't stop me from asking the bartenders for those adorable cute little match boxes with the DCL logo on it. They are so cute!

And I love taking those adorable cute glass paper topper thingys. (The ones that cover the glasses in the bathroom.) I put them over my wine glasses up in the cupboard. I obviously have a hard time throwing away anything that has a DCL logo on it. Shameful.

I asked every server, bartender, whoever, "can I keep this pen?" I LOVE my DCL pens! (Pen hoarder right here!)

I brought an iron and it caught on fire and I just threw it overboard.

Just kidding. Just seeing if anyone was reading this. No one at home ever listens to me...so, I just thought I'd check here.

My first thought was this poor poster is going to get hammered for this.

Can we not take a little sand? I collect sand from everywhere we go.

That sounds like something I would do.

I am still waiting to take my 1st cruise but this is a great thread!!! I'll be sure to post any confessions after my cruise in Sept.

My husband and I, on our honeymoon, tested out the airborne ability of grapes off of our balcony. We thought it was so funny that we might have ordered a cheese platter the next night just t experiment a little more.

Also, Someone sent us am in-room platter than had chocolate covered strawberries, and other various items. It also had this really cute chocolate Mickey Mouse that stood on its own. Well, neither of us could bring ourselves to eat him, but he might have also ended up walking the plank our last night.

*For those that would lecture us about throwing stuff into the ocean, it wasn't many, and it was food. Mickey might not have gone over if I hadn't maybe had a little too much to drink.

DH and I went on one of the Pixar cruises on the Wonder last September without the kids. They were just starting the school year and we couldn't take them out for a week. Plus DH and I hadn't had a vacation alone since our honeymoon.

The kids knew about it. They weren't happy but they had been on the Wonder for the MR in April and already knew we were booked for the Fantasy this month (so they had plenty of their own vacations).

My confession...I asked my Mom not to bring the kids to see the sailaway (we live near the port so we would often go down just to watch the ship leave on Sundays). I said it would be too hard on the kids to watch us leaving on a Disney cruise without them.

The truth was it would have been too hard on me to sail away and see them standing there
