I like putting them together to give out and I like checking the pockets to see what we got but I'm not a big fan of having to run around the ship delivering them.
I will gladly volunteer my kid... She loves running around delivering fe gifts....

Okay, I am not a crazy person or heavy drinker. But . . . one night we got three wavephone pages from the kids club between 12:55-1:05 saying they were closing soon . . . . they were closing . . . they were closed . . . we were rushing to get there, and then on top of feeling horrible that we were late I tripped on the way there because the boat was rocking and I had really big heals on (and then a there were the few cocktails that probably contributed). We got there at 1:06, but I felt terrible that we were late (even though we were definitely not the last people). Needless to say we never stayed to the end of the night in the bar district again!

This thread has been great! Thanks for the laughs.

My confession.... I cruised DCL without my husband or kids back in February. My best friend and her husband went and I roomed with a family member. It was so freeing to not have anyone to worry about. I told the kids I had a meeting put of town, but they knew I went on a cruise when I came back with DCL gifts.

Next year, DH and I are going to cruise the Med without the kids. We are calling it a long overdue honeymoon. We have not decided what we will tell the kids this time. Might just tell them we are going to Europe and leave off the DCL part until we get back.

Cool, we always have a candy bowl in our stateroom, along with a bottle of vodka......oh and DH always wears shorts to dinner, even if I do not approve lol

On our European cruise I would always wake up earlier than DH. My morning routine became that I was silently leave the room, and go to Cove Cafe for my cappuccino and croissant. I would then walk around the deck until it was time to go to, around 7:30 am, what came to be known to myself, and DH as the Triple P Ranch outside of Palo. You finish the alliteration Private ______ Palace (all that marble! and real towels!). At that time of day it was the cleanest, quietest place on the ship. On the last morning of the cruise I was a bit miffed that I wasn't the first one there for once.

My confession... I just dont get when adults are all excited about the "signing by the characters" thing. I want to scream "The characters are not REAL!". I imagine a bunch of DCL employees dreading signing the endless pillowcases and mats for photos. Do you think they have to take special classes to learn to "write like Cinderella" or "do a sad Eeyore signature" ?

Ok, my rant is over...........
