My confession is that I just wish we could leave my husband home and just have DS and I go. I know that sounds mean, sorry.
DH is such a party pooper. He doesn't want to do activities, because they don't interest him. I even told him he can go in the sports bar during the day and watch the games on the big screen, but no. He did have fun playing putt-putt with us on the Fantasy. No on the adult clubs for him too. He's a picky eater, so he's not too hot on the dinners. I try to tell him he can get plain meats, potatoes and salads and can even order off the kids menu. He did like the shows. He spends most of his time in the room. He also doesn't like the beach that much so there is no attraction for CC.
Plus, he gets seasick, I think. He doesn't throw up or get sick to his stomach. He just complains that he feels the ship moving and that bothers him and makes him feel unsettled.
You know, I love him, but I spend so much time trying to please him, make sure he is ok and enjoying himself on the cruise. I probably should just relax and let him watch tv and nap.

I worry about this. We leave in 1 week and I'm afraid it might be like this for me too.

I take home the towel animals --and actually use the towels at home.

Are we married to the same guy? He gets mad if I plan, but then upset if nothing is planned. He does like the cruises, but not the same activities We did not get to see any shows on our Dream cruise. He was good about Pirate night and the mid-ship detective.

As far as food my DH is just like yours. After whining about the menu the first night I just told him to let me order for him. I asked our server for a sirloin well done and a baked potato the first night for him. When it came out just as I asked he was happy and it made for easier times in the MDR knowing he could get his "meat and potatoes" if he didn't like any choices on the menu

Sounds like my DH too! We had a good time on the Alaskan cruise, but it was because we left the kids at home. Our last cruise with the whole family, he pretty much just kept to himself except for at dinner. Had a blast with my girls though!

I found it was easier just to do what I wanted to do on my own, or with the girls, and if he was in the mood, he would occasionally join us. I did book a mother/daughter cruise for this summer and told him he couldn't come.

Me, too! My husband spent the entire cruise acting as if he was alone on the trip. It was no fun, definitely. I had a blast with my DS though!

Another confession: I fear the family pools. That many kids in one small bucket of water can't be all that healthy. It looks like kid soup with a big helping of yuck to me.

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.
LOL, I just let out a very loud laugh at work reading about your "iron"!!

One time at the buffet lunch on embarkation day, my 5 year old and I were filling up our drinks and she exclaims, "Mom, look! These are just like the cups we have at home!"

Busted....

On the 2010 EBTA cruise we were playing a game in on of the bars where we were in a big team and the host said send me someone from your team who has a belly button piercing. Our team captain was very serious about this game so I kept my mouth shut and didn't say I had one, but my aunt ratted me out and our captain sent me up....I was in a dress (which is why I hadn't volunteered) and once I was up there I stood there for a few seconds and then just pulled the dress up to my head long enough to show off the piercing and then threw it back down.

It started a chain reaction of other teams sending girls in dresses up as well but we got the point

If this is what a lot of people do, maybe that's why DCL keeps raising prices.

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

and i wasnt even there.
also you cant go telling stories like that without pictures.
