My awful confession: I cruised a few times when I was 18 and 19, and I was... bored. Not that I didn't LOVE the experience, I did! The dining, the shows, even the parties were amazing. Castaway Cay is the best place ever. But when you're too old for the teen club and too young for the bars (and your family won't do ANYTHING except maybe go to the basketball court for 30 minutes-- I went to all the shows alone), it's tough.

That said, it's been many years since I cruised and I can't wait to go back and introduce my soon-to-be-DH to DCL. We can't afford it anytime soon, but the idea of 'starting over' with cruising, of being able to enjoy the adult areas, of being able to do a scavenger hunt or an onboard seminar without the 'Why? That's dumb,' attitudes of family... it sounds wonderful. Someday.

Here goes my confession: on the Disney Dream last year I set off the smoke detector with the steam from my shower. I got call asking if everything was okay. I said I am not sure what happened and the said did you just take a shower. Embarrassed, guess it happens a lot.

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

DH did this on our last cruise. Boy, is that alarm LOUD.

Luckily, I had read about this incident on the DISboards, and knew about it.

I have to say, that I was worried that I wouldn't be able to do a cruise because of my fear of water..well, as you can see, I will be cruising in April of 2014 Love it and I was never bored on the first one...I can't wait

There must be some mistake. You see, he's MY husband!

(Although we may have to split up soon... My DFiance will become my DH in 9 days and he would take exception to me being married to anyone else. *sigh* It was nice while it lasted!)

Just found this thread and LOVING it!!

So here goes my confession:
I am in the mid-30's and I still dash to get in line to get pictures with the characters....I talk to princesses about their lives (I did ask belle what boom she is reading nowadays; I asked Cinderella what she did that day...I asked Tinker Bell how she got on the ship!! And she said it took her 10 bottles of pixie dust to fly all the way to the ship!)

Also, I took advantage of the quiet rainforest's heat lounge area and fell asleep....woke myself up snoring several times!! Lol

One more thing...I always ask my friend to make me Disney shirts (she does embroidery....) so I own several embroidery shirts that you see ifs wearing....lol

ROTFL!!!! My 9yo son still great them with all the exuberance of a very young child. It's a joy to watch, and I will miss that when he's older. My 12yo daughter, who has an old soul, always whispers to me, "I won't tell him."

Hopefully you will be able to make this trip soon. I think you will have a great time.

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...........
Actually they do have to master those signatures. They also take multiple classes to learn how to speak, behave, and not skip a beat at answering anyone's questions. It is very intense as much for fur as it is face. I am a former CM and know what they go thru. And yes, when you meet a Disney character--be it goofy, Mickey, Smee, or Ariel they are truly those characters.

Oh no!! God forbid!! How dare ya'll!! HAHAHAHAHAHA, Whatever...those people need to get over themselves. That they need to worry about what others are doing in a BAR close to midnight, on a cruise no less!? Shame on ya'll!!!

Okay, twist my arm. I don't smoke but it didn't stop me from asking the bartenders for those adorable cute little match boxes with the DCL logo on it. They are so cute!

And I love taking those adorable cute glass paper topper thingys. (The ones that cover the glasses in the bathroom.) I put them over my wine glasses up in the cupboard. I obviously have a hard time throwing away anything that has a DCL logo on it. Shameful.

I asked every server, bartender, whoever, "can I keep this pen?" I LOVE my DCL pens! (Pen hoarder right here!)

I brought an iron and it caught on fire and I just threw it overboard.

Just kidding. Just seeing if anyone was reading this. No one at home ever listens to me...so, I just thought I'd check here.
Actually, the thing with the iron would be the smartest thing to do I would think. 'Specially if you're by the balcony when you were ironing.

i confess

pre cruise i really fancied a suite ~ dh didn't and no matter how many sweet nothings i whispered about free pre dinner cocktails he just wasn't taking the bait, i whispered lovely things like suite darling, jaccuzi tub pre dinner drinkies and he replied something along the lines of double dip recession and the car needs servicing

so i resorted to underhand tactics

i cooked that special man of mine a gorgeous steak dinner, topped up his beer like a good wife does and changed from my usual jeans and tees into the shortest sexiest dress i own and with some killer heels what can i say the man was putty
Haha!! Very nice!! I'd be putty too if my DW to be did that. But I'd also say "What the hell, why not" (Pardon my french). So she prolly wouldn't have to work that hard. But Still, this is hilarious!!
