And another thing... I can't for the life of me understand what the fuss about pirate night is all about.

I like the fireworks bit but it's all the forced fun that leads up to it that gives me stiff pain.

Can't we just skip the hysterically happy crew and go right to eating cake and watching fireworks?

Another thing I find questionable is the notion of a formal night. This is hardly an ambassadorial affair.

If the are going to have dinner wear, then I expect to see the host with a copy of Debrett's arranging the order of going into dinner.

Now wouldn't that be interesting? Would Castaway Club members be seated based on their club level...or would this be entirely on social standing?

As there isn't much of the aristocracy cruising on DCL would you enter based on the job you do? Would military and civil servants be seated before doctors and lawyers? When would the poor teachers get seated?

The teachers would serve, Jackie...

Sorry, as a retired teacher I felt I needed to say that!

Thanks for the funny thread! I, too, cringe when food servers parade to music. I dislike the necessary handshake and butt kissing conversation nightly from the head servers. And I REALLY dislike (gasp) the family name announcement when we board the ship!!! I know that is practically a reason to be thrown off the DCL disboards, but I just had to throw my wee complaint in ...

I do like the smileys here tho'

What makes me cringe is when I stand next to a sign, let's say the one that says Palo. Someone who is new will ask if this is Palos. I am sorry you ask me that I will say no. After all the name of the place is Palo not Palos. People who pulralize names make me cringe. Sorry that's my rant.
