If we're not supposed to play board games in groups of people in Diversions then why do they have board games there to begin with? Just because we're bringing a larger selection doesn't mean we're changing the atmosphere of the designated sports and gaming pub on the ship. Now, if we were planning on doing it in Cadillac Lounge, then I'd totally agree.

Also, I'm curious why gaming in the gaming bar is an unwelcome distraction but flash mobbing Triton's sit-down breakfast in our pajamas isn't? ;D

On a side note: whatever time of day games happen, Cards Against Humanity absolutely must be after the 9pm Route 66 curfew for minors. I wouldn't want strange young ears overhearing THAT game, ha! Talk about disruptive!

I agree, Diversions is a bar designed around games, they have large booths that a bunch of us could sit in to play a game. Personally it is one of my favourite spots to sit and relax especially before dinner. Jason and I played checkers every night on our last cruise was lots of fun... I can't see how a group of people playing games and having fun would impact someone else's ability to enjoy the cruise?

Hi and welcome. I do remember your name but I didn't participate in Secret Mickey. That WBTA was a fantastic cruise!! This will be too.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.
So it looks like a lot of people have taken this cruise before? It will be our first Panama Canal. My husband is VERY excited about going through the canal & has bought a few books already.

Hmmm, I do remember you - we must have chatted before/during the cruise. We are big fans of the longer itineraries...seems like we are not the only ones!

I was on the 2011 WBTA too, and seem to remember your name. Your husband will love the presentations on the canal by Captain (ret) Puckett. He's a stitch.

I did the EBPC alone in December. It was a great experience. With DISers, one is never really "alone" unless one wishes to be.

Might I suggest planning our group activities during the "done times" I.e diversions during the day, so that all can enjoy the ship as wish to.

Just a suggestion......

i agree, kracken. i would be very unhappy if my hubby and i were finally alone together and relaxing only to have a large group of loud people come in and take over the atmosphere in the room... we should all be considerate of all other passengers-

Hi Linda!

Wasn't Capt. Puckett the lecturer on an EBTA too? Does he do stargazing on deck at night? I think I remember him.

He was on the Westbound. He was also on the 2011 Panama cruise. I hope he will be on this one. He is a great speaker and gives a very good presentation.

Just a suggestion . . . if you guys want a quietly relaxing time together a deux, you probably don't want Diversions anyway - it's a PUB. You want the Cadillac lounge . . . quiet, dim, low key, romantic. Or the outlook bar, overlooking the adult pool. Or the Cove Cafe - not just a coffee place, but an adults only space with a bar.

And then, for non-alcoholic relaxation, there's the Rainforest room, the exotic rasul, or couple time in the spa . . .
