You're quite right, I'm not sure I remember the end of the night but certainly recall the start

A fab end to a great cruise with good Friends

hire a prince/princess

On the longer cruises there is A Princess at Sea Tea Party held in Lumieres.

This is a ticketed event with invite sent to your stateroom, RSVP to be delivered to box in gift shop, the event is free.
Each prince and princess is allowed 2 adults to escort them to Tea party.

On the wbta those with extra adult spaces offered them to "fairy godmothers" that were not travelling with children. once we knew date of event we left a message on stateroom phone with date/time.

if this is offered again, is there anyone interested, i have 2 adult spaces to escort my princesses if anyone is interested.

Awesome job on Event Organizers jumping on the thread on a Saturday to do placeholders of new Part Two thread! We have four more we are waiting for. Those who have done your placeholder, please feel free to start adding your events to your post by editing that post. Some are already done. I have also linked the events in post #1 to your specific post (even if you have multiple events) so you will notice that in the first post now as hyperlinks.

Once the remaining four placeholders are held, I will
- add the new Part Two link to bottom of this current thread
- ask mod to close this current thread

Hopefully we can do this Monday or so after everyone has had a chance to get on DIS, see their PM from me, and type Placeholder on the link I provided.

I'd be up for that. Can we do desserts or does it have to be a dinner type thing? I have a few favorite dessert recipes.

I think that means that we'd also have two extra tickets if anyone is interested.

My two girls would love this, and that would open three adult spaces. (My DS is more the type to blow bubbles in his teacup. )

I loved it too 😍 just wish I could get away with wearing a princess dress 😱.

Boys received a crown, girls were given sashes. All the princesses and minnie visit each table, it was a fab experience. They are also announced into dining room as "princess ....." Amazing when you have an aspiring princess.

Afternoon tea, although not up to palo standards, was yummy ☕🍰🍪🍩

Ok that's us got 7 spaces for any
Fairy godmothers/fathers out there??

I am working on Post #1 now of new thread and put you down, will also included you after 2:00 Galveston time today in the PM going out
Be sure that DCL knows no money is going to change hands - that is a NO NO for them...all events/activities have to be cash-less - or paid for in advance.

please do NOT bring the bottles on deck - if DCL sees bottles out there they could revoke the Privilege we have to bring our own on board...so PLEASE PLEASE if you are going to do a swap/can't take it off the ship deal - do it in a cabin or with the bottles covered somehow.

Good point. I wasn't even thinking we were playing for money, just for girl fun.

Bunco (Oklahoma style) is never about money, but it is about getting loud and a bit rowdy. There is usually a prize for the winner and a ****y prize for last place. Too cut down on any more gifts, we could always buy the winner a drink and the loser a shot. ; ) just an idea.

Thanks! We know it's out in the listings of cruise meets -- don't think anyone will post just yet with the big red letters at the top. Have a few more organizers to put placeholders so this will definitely be up and running by the time we hit 250 pages!
