Ok...my flame-resistant suit is on and no one knows this except for DH... It's taken many pages of this thread for me to work up the courage to admit this, but here goes.

When the meet-and-greet lines are long (and being cut off) to get pictures with characters, I get so annoyed by the time taken up dealing with autograph books.

Okay, I won't let you take the heat alone.

I confess I don't 'get' the whole autograph thing at all.

I keep my kids out of the quiet cove even if it means backtracking and going downstairs to avoid it.
I don't save seats in the theatre.
And yes, I still have a wonderful cruise!
It is so good to know i am not the only one

This confession still gives DH and I nightmares. We cruised on the fourth sailing of The Magic in 1998. We had adjoining cabins for our teen aged children and DH and I in the other, both verandahs.

DS, was 15 years old at the time and decided to join us in our cabin by climbing the railing from one verandah to the other. We both froze and held our breath. It never occured to us that anyone would think that was OK. There are special angels who look after teenagers. We were so glad when DCL made a door between verandahs for connecting staterooms As frightning as that is, I wonder if this has happened to others.

Wow!!!! I never even thought of that!!!! We had a verandah last time, when our daredevil son was 7. DH worried the whole time... Haven't told him yet that I upgraded us to one for November....

Therefore, in order to earn that tip from me, I expect a certain level of service. You are not going to get tipped for bad service, plain and simple. Serve me well, and you will be rewarded above the mandatory/minimum tip level.
Our Head Server was the WORST! I never saw him except for the day I finally sought him out because I had a problem and the waiter said the head server was the one who could fix it.
He did fix it and found me on the last morning to ask me if what he did was satisfactory. It was but if it hadn't been what was he going to do as I was about to walk off the ship?

I have been trying to think of my own DCL confessions....

As far as on the ship all I could think of was I really do not enjoy the service or food in the MDR. I go on vacation to relax and have fine dining so I still go to the MDR but I am never impressed and very underwhelmed ( please dont hate me ) lol....but thanks to these boards , now I know I can do Palo more then once if they have availability so I will def try to take advantage of that

My main confession is once I am off the ship..I want to throw a tantrum like my young ones because I dont want to leave! I dont want to go back to dishes, cooking, cleaning, and counting calories I get the cruise blues BAD!

That sounds like something my DS would do. I say boys don't get any brain cells until they are 25

Glad he made it.

Just came across this great thread! I have no real confessions except how I dislike the people that save seats (sometimes 1/2 a row - really??) in the theatre and how happy I am to have a boy when passing the crazy long lines for the princesses!

Ok I have held this in long enough and I know I am going to get it but here it goes. I was once asked why I never did a FE. My answer: Cause I think it is stupid. There you go. Go ahead let me have it.

I agree with you. A lot of money is spent on these things and it seems that everyone is trying to outdo the other. Besides, I would never want to spend all that time and effort delivering everything.......when I'm on vacation, I don't want to think about anything!!!! I guess for some, it gives the kids something to do but I don't understand the adults wanting to participate, I'll buy my own gifts on the ship.

Still dazed from taking an iron off the old coconut, I'm not sure I got the right room but I did what I came to do.
On the walk back, I was still carrying the pillow. Not wanting to get caught with the murder weapon, I threw it under a bed of an open cabin...


I amstill laughing.
