We did not enjoy that night either. I found the whole Crush thing too loud and overwhelming.

I've spent the last 2 days reading all 56 pages of this thread... I've laughed, I've empathized, I've been annoyed... And I've laughed more! I now know I'm not alone with some of my confessions.

I've never been to Disney land, Disney world or any Orlando park. I've never cruised anything but the Dream. (Until 8/2015 for our Fantasy cruise.)

We joined the verandah club on our first cruise and I expect to renew my membership each cruise.

I brought corona on my last cruise and drank it wherever whenever. ( it seems to blend in since it's sold on board)

DW brought sand home from CC, in a small bottle we got in our FE. (Against my recommendation)

Our home dinnerware includes a paintbrush butter knife (just like the ones in AP)

I have no intention of trying Palo/Remy/etc. partially cause I'm cheap, but mostly cause I cruise with my family, so I enjoy dining with my
family.

It is MY OPINION that if you don't enjoy the characters, music, themed restaurants or other Disney magic, maybe you belong on carnival.

My (special needs) son tripped an emergency system going into RP last year on the dream, closing the doors as people were entering

I love the bathroom mirror with the mini magnifying mirror in it

I don't remember any servers' names, much less keep in touch with them. Partially due to the thick accents ours have had. Our last cruise I had trouble understanding some of his English and his overall tone was dismissive.

I must plead the fifth on a couple other counts, due to possible penalty of law or moral police.

additionally, after reading everything and knowing how great the service is (99% of the time) it seems like the staff almost cannot tell guests "no" or correct them. Operating on something of an honor system, where if you know you should dress a certain way, pay a cork fee, not steal or not drink somewhere, they aren't allowed to tell you you're wrong. Further ensuring you have a great time and possibly earning them better tips or ratings.

Btw, I've been allowed to do the Mickey slide, due to DS's disorder- lemonade from lemons in my book

I was going to try to convince the wifey for the veranda club on our last cruise. However when she saw the cameras on the side of the ship, she immediately balked and went inside. So I mooned the camera and went back inside. I am sure that the folks next door heard me carrying on like a 16 year old on the deck. Then I broke my toe when I hit the chair on the deck... I am sure that they thought I was a raging lunatic.


Can't wait til next June (15) to take our next cruise!!

My confession ~ the whole verandah club grosses me out. I keep thinking about those uncomfortable chairs and tables. My nephew barfed on our verandah chair, so take that for what it's worth. Not much, just me and that picture and smell in my head! LOL

Anyhoo, aren't those beds so comfy. Yums.

I'm a towel stealer. They aren't very good towels but I like the Disney Cruise Line logo on them. I do the same thing at hotels too. I usually take one after every stay. Anything with a logo goes home with me too.

Oh, and ever since I got home from our first cruise in 2012, I've felt like Locke from LOST... "We've gotta get back to the island!"

I have to admit I also have been wondering about this logistics of this.... Uncomfortable chairs? Standing? Am I putting too much thought into this? :D

NO! You just posted the same thing I was thinking. Maybe, if I were ten *cough 20* years younger? With some clean towels?

We aren't members (yet...) but I would guess many may join in a way that Bill Clinton might argue does not qualify.

It's like the Mile High Club, but instead of, um, "getting intimate" on an airplane, you do so on a cruise ship verandah.
