Ouch!! I am from upstate, and I mean upstate as in a 60 minute drive from Montreal, and I hope we are not all put in the same group just because we are from NY. I have encountered lots of nasty people from all over the globe, it doesn't really matter where you live, there is always at least one in the bunch.

Ahhh....I feel better now knowing I'm not the only one that goes on DCL without their kids. DH and I took a 3 night last week but we didn't tell them we were going anywhere. They weren't home all week so we didn't tell them anything. Ignorance is bliss...... [/QUOTE]


You are my heros!

Bad mom!
Ditto here! Last January on the Magic, our 13 year old came back to the cabin to find us sound asleep at midnight. Oops

I thought it was a cruise thing. When we had stayed at the GF, I put it in my suitcase everyday and mouse keeping always gave me a new set the next day.

Maybe it was just my host?

I'm entertained by the public bathrooms with the mirrored ceilings in the adult district... especially after a night of drinking.

So, I promise I have never done it, but every time I'm on a cruise I have to talk myself out of it.

When I walk the halls at night and all the room service trays are sitting in the hallway....I want to take the Blue/White placemats. They would look so cute on my dining room table.

1) went and checked if I could book exotic razul for my cruise next month after seeing everyones confessions

2) sat on the balcony every day in a tshirt and underwear but I did have the blanket with me if people came out next door or we were in port so no one saw anything...except the cameras I guess according to other posts.

3) Agree also with the feminine hygiene bags and feel embarrassed about it!

4) Drank my wine and mixed drinks all over the ship in my own cups but was too scared to bring it to the dining room

5) Booked another cruise while on our first and when we got home we decided a year was too long to wait and booked another one 2 weeks later for halfway in between!

6) Took my heels off and walked around barefoot up the stairs to our room bc my feet were so swollen and uncomfortable.

7) Went for my honeymoon and got mad at DH when he didn't want to try to play the match your mate game and by the end he wished we'd played bc we had all the same answers as each other!

8) Talked my mother into coming on our cruise with us next month and I love her and do everything with her but starting to regret it since me and DH may not have as much alone time as we'd like...and hoping she won't book another cruise without taking me along!! lol

Loving this thread and I'm sure there's plenty more I'll think of!!

I will probably also have to construct some kind of temporary enclosure with multiple layers that will prevent anyone seeing us from a neighboring veranda with binoculars, night vision, or infra-red. It will also have to prevent pictures taken by spy satellites.

Come to think of it, forget it. Joining the club isn't worth all of that trouble.
DH and I attempted this on our last cruise. I say attempted due to:

Baby was asleep. DH and I were on the verandah. We started playing. DS8 comes into the room and out onto verandah. We heard him come in since we had the verandah doors open in case the baby woke up. DS talks to us for awhile and then says he is going back to the kids clubs. He leaves and closes the verandah door. DH and I decide we are going to pick up where we left off, but after I reopen the door, in case baby wakes up. I then find out the door is locked!!! There goes all ideas of joining "the club" and instead we start screaming in hopes that someone else has their verandah open nearby and can get us help. Thank goodness someone one deck up heard us!!

Boring! Jk! Live on the edge a little!

This made me giggle.

But I know that feeling of locking a baby in a car - absolute panic!

Do people really make woopi on the balconies? That's like doing it on the beach, so uncomfortable, no way I could enjoy it.
