My confession is that I got good seats to several shows by looking for someone who was saving a bunch of seats and sitting in them. I don't mean that if someone was saving a seat for someone who ran to the bathroom I ran over and snagged their seat. I mean that if someone was trying to save an entire row they might suddenly find themselves four seats short.

IMO, that's not really a confession of doing something you shouldn't. It's the way it should be.


And, yes, I've done it also.

Sorry, don't know the number of CMs there, but, be aware, that the CMs there can't accept cash tips.

One of the best "tips" you can give a CM is a specific mention, by name, on your end of cruise comment card. These are used for extra time off, promotions, "attaboy" points in their employment record).

I have never done one either. I think it's great for those who want to, and I am sure the kids enjoy it. I am not crafty. I do not want to carry all that stuff in my luggage; in either direction. And quite frankly, I already have too much stuff in my house!

I fill up my refillable mug directly from the soda fountains. It doesn't touch anything and seems pretty sanitary to me (if it's good enough for Subway, it's good enough for me!). Filling up the little cups to dump in my cup is a waste of time and it dirties a cup (and it seems it would irritate people waiting to use the machine).

We've done the Exotic Rasul on both our cruises. The first cruise my parents were along and we said we had a "couples spa appointment". Then later we gave conflicting reports as to what the spa treatment entailed. Whoops...

Well one night it was really whistling. I waited and waited for him to wake up and correct it. I must have been in a bad mood because finally I wacked him on the chest and rudely and loudly said "you're leaking!"

He tried adjusting the straps, the face mask, the seals everything. It wouldnt stop whistling. Turns out there was a pretty good wind outside and it was whistling through the room. I felt terrible.....but I still will sleep with that door open, lol
OMG I have tears in my eyes...

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.
Ok, seriously this is too funny. I'm not going to have a voice tomorrow because I have been laughing so hard. This is totally something I would do.

Well, he proceeded to take me to a big table with a couple of the entertainment cast members and about 10 other people. I had inadvertently stumbled into the 'Cruising Single' mixer lunch. I awkwardly ate and made as little polite small talk as possible knowing my DW and 5 kids were on board!

I ate quickly and was the first to leave... I will never forget the cast member saying "did we scare you off?" as I left!

Oh, and I pee in the stateroom showers.
Love it!!

I got a $20 tube of that as a gift and have it on my desk at work. Great stuff.

Last year while sailing on the Wonder to the Mexican Rivera I was at the quiet cove pool when two women placed towels down on the 2 chairs next to me, and then went off to lunch. ( I know that because they were talking about what to eat). After about 30 minutes, and since there were people waiting for open chairs I removed the towels so that couple could use them. Finally 30-40 minutes later while I was in the pool the two women returned looking completely puzzled. Oh well.
