We have a set of 8, and to this day mom will open the cupboard, see them, and sigh that we should have thought to make it a set of 12 XD

Same cruise, my brother and I were playing shuffle board, and he sent one hard as he could to try to knock mine out. Needless to say, he missed, and it went flying down the deck to the absolute other end of the ship, past a lot of very amused guests. Same game he also bounced one weirdly and almost sent it over the side. Yikes!

Love this thread!
I somehow sent one over the side on accident. It took a weird bounce, landed on its side and rolled off the deck between the post and the railing. I couldn't have done it if I tried! My son and I ran away like a couple of school kids thinking we were gonna get in trouble. We laughed all the way back to our room. When we told my wife she just rolled her eyes like we were idiots.

Sorry if I ruined anyone's plans for sitting on a veranda because now you're going to be wondering if the last person that had the cabin sat naked in it.
Love it and great idea!

To be fair, we picked up a snack at a buffet and told the dish-hander-outer CM that we were taking it to our room, and that we were considering stealing it because our granddaughter would love it. He said to go ahead. Of course, now we know they never say no,and the second one -from the Fantasy (is a bit more blatant), but still...

BTW - we do have two AP butter knives from the Fantasy, but we bought them in the shop.
OMG!!! I LOVE those plates!! WANT please!? Haha.

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.
I thought you only had to be 18 for the bars? Not to drink of course, but to dance.

Same for me as Ludari... My family and I did it our first cruise. Never since. Too much hassle, and really (to me) took away from us being able to explore/enjoy the ship.

We are cruising on the Allure if the Seas with DH's family Thanksgiving week. We've only ever sailed DCL. The only reason we're going is because its DH's family and they'll never sail w/Disney. None of us are excited. The teenagers actually have asked us several times if we can cancel. Its so pitiful. So where's my confession in this???? Well, DH came up with the idea that we should make sure we have enough DCL shirts that we can each wear one every day of the cruise on Allure. We actually spent a few hundred $$ on our teen-free Fantasy cruise last week making sure we have tshirts covered. We'll bring our DCL lanyards, drink from Disney tumblers, etc. So now we're getting a little excited..... LOL!

Feeling the pixie dust love!

I am really interested to hear you compare Allure & Fantasy, so kiss n tell when you get back!

And I would love to see the fam wearing DCL shirts all over RCI! Gotta post some photos of that.

Everyone says the teens love Allure more than DC. I guess you will find out...

Hi Cruisin'Nick.....I live in Abita Springs, but I work in Mandeville at Banner Ford. Small world indeed. So looking forward to cruising on the Fantasy. Have already cruised on the Magic and the Dream. Need to try to sail on the Wonder sometime.

We seem to have some of those too, and I don't know how it happened. We were warned about the towel-sniffing dogs at debarkation though.

Ok so here is mine:

My sister collects sea shells, I found a really pretty one on Castaway Cay that I wanted to bring home to her. I asked my daughter how I could get it back on the ship without them scanning my bag and seeing it. Okay... and at my 19 year old daughters suggestion, I put it in my bathing suit top.
