Hilarious. That's a great confession.

Ever notice how it keeps coming and coming? I keep thinking "The box is done" but nope!

Hum...I'm wondering if it is a confession or not that two of my FB friends are previous CMs (one of our servers and one of the merchandise hosts)

Low and behold, i came he with a DCL cup from beach blanket buffet.
What I would love to have accidentally slip into my bag are the children's plates at the buffet (the divided ones with the DCL logo around the edges). I would love to use those for dinner every night Not for my kids...for ME!

What I'm afraid to admit (and I think I already did on this thread) is that I remember all our servers names and I good amount of Merchandise Host's names. But I have some great memories (in the form of Magical Moments certificates) that I have received from them. And I always go looking in the shops right away when we get on board to see if any of the same ones are there

Ok, after reading and with all of the other confessions I must now add mine:
Having been on 7 DCLs I have done as previous mentioned:
Brought on booze, sometimes lots, used plastic cups to take drinks to the pools and dinner.
Taken a collection of H2O products home - DW does put them in boxes for kids, in Haiti, at Christmas.

New confessions:
Left the ship with more booze, than I brought on. Won some in drawings, given some as a stateroom gift, and what we purchased on the islands.
Made up a name to give to the announcers as I arrive on the ship to get a laugh out of the CMs standing around clapping.
Was mooned by a passing boat (several people) while in port at PC.

Went on the Magic the very first year of service back in '98. Everyone was checking in but no one was getting in-line, this was back before the boarding numbers. I told DW that at a certain time if no one was going to start the line I would. At that time I went to the head of the line, DW had the video running, and you should see the line form, people running from all over the terminal to get in-line. DW and I were the first people introed on that cruise.
Thank you to all the good people that are running in the terminal, for the continued laughs.

Do NOT splash in the water! - At CC-SB, DW is on a raft about 20 yards out, I take the camera and start walking out to take her picture. I see all the little fishes scatter, look around and see a 2-3 foot Black Tip Shark swimming around. DW is using her hands to move the raft creating small splashes. The shark turns toward her, I tell DW to stop cause I see a shark. What does DW do? She jumps off the raft causing a bigger splash! I have to run to get between her and the shark.

Neither did we when we went on the cruise 30 years ago. (Obviously not DCL) He was great and all, but it's not like we exchanged holiday cards or anything. (And we had him for the whole cruise. I guess really the unique thing with DCL is the rotation thing? Because we certainly had the same server for that entire cruise in the same restaurant.)

Two weeks ago on the Transatlantic I went back to my room in the middle of the day, door was open and the host was cleaning the bathroom. I was beat so went in and laid on the bed anyway, host walked into the main room, and OMG THAT'S NOT MY HOST and OM friggin G that isn't my stuff on the dresser. I was in the wrong room! Accidentally got off the elevator at 7 instead of 6 and just made myself at home on their bed. As I was rushing out I told the host "this never happened, we will never speak of it again".

I also was on the elevator when it stopped mid-trip to let more people on. It was a family with two SCREAMING kids (one was flailing and kicking too). I acted like I got confused and hit the door closed button instead of door open one. My 5 year old was super judge-y on that one and I do admit feeling bad now but they were LOUD and I had 5 more floors to go.
