Oh, memories. On our Royal Car. cruise, I told my husband to pack up, and I think he said "this stuff too" and I said ya, everything, hurry up. When I got home, I saw he packed a 3 inch blue binder that I'm sure was suppose to be left in the room! Any one want a spanish version, french version, etc? Dear lord.

sand toys galore!

Just off a 7 day cruise on the Fantasy in April 2014...went to the 11pm showing of the Muppets Most Wanted...stayed for the credits...as we were leaving, saw an empty plastic popcorn bucket on the floor ($7.50 a pop!). Had one of the kids pick it up. My 9yo used it the next day on CC.

Speaking of CC, had a lazy morning, we left the ship at 11, played in the water, ate lunch, did the sting ray thing, and then stayed on the family beach until 4pm--all aboard was at 4:45. Had the kids play with all the abandoned beach toys--even brought some home.

Haha. Me too. I wanted to commemorate my first cruise by bringing home a tiny sea shell....so I put it in the bra of my bathing suit. Great minds! LOL

Yeah, it's like using a $500 hotel room for the day without paying. However, the Concierge Team is in and out of those cabanas all day. It may have been a last minute can cancellation with no one on a waiting list so they looked the other way. If someone wanted to pay for it they would have simply been asked to leave.

Oh, I so enjoyed this thread. We have friends who took their server home with them. Literally. He lived with them for a year.

We were that family this cruise

We were the loud ones at dinner, all 11 of us. We were having a good time

The biggest one though is we saved seats. We saved seats at the movies. We saved seats in the Theater for all the shows.

Our saving grace everyone was coming and only a few minutes behind the Savers and rarely were we right up front Like that makes it better.

Yes, and worked in their store.

I couldn't care less about the stage shows.

I really, really like the Promenade Deck. I could spend all day walking and just enjoying the salt air.

I insisted on being moved during the Muster when I realized the child next to me was very ill (Mom was talking about her throwing up) because the last thing I wanted to do was be exposed to kid bugs that early in the trip.

When my husband and I went to the couple's massage treatment on the Magic, I pretended to be deaf (husband really is Deaf!) in hopes they would skip the upsell. Well, we did get a nice quiet couple's massage, but then the manager on duty held us captive afterwards and upsold to us in gesture!! And then I ended up buying one product (ONE) that we have never, ever used. Much as we loved the massage, I'm hesitant to go back because I hate those hard-sell techniques!

I have at least one cloth napkin from every dining room on the Magic, Wonder and Dream. Don't ask don't tell, it's a thing I collect.

That really really bugs me too, so after the second spa treatment, when they ask, "what areas are you concerned with", I answer, " just want to enjoy this experience and don't need anything other than relaxation". They've never bothered me after that. Been on 11 cruises and do a spa treatment every trip, we did couples treatments too. Those are our favorites .

After reading this whole thread I will add my confessions:

I wear Crocs or ballet slippers with a hard bottom pretty much everywhere including on formal night.

We have never seen the space men that clean up vomit in the dining rooms because we are always too busy running DS back to the room because he has felt the need to christen each of the dining rooms at least once (he has special needs and tends to throw up when overstimulated and/or when he eats too quickly).

Items that are a must in my carry on - a mason jar with a lid, a bottle of white rum, and a bottle of coconut rum. I pick up pineapple from the buffet, cut it in pieces and put it in the mason jar. Fill the jar with white rum, let sit overnight, mix with some coconut rum the next day and suddenly you are transported to the islands even while you are still at sea.

I own a collection of beach towels from Princess cruise line, but none from Disney.

DH begs to go to the Lab when they are having open house hours so that he can play the ship steering game. DS & I have left him in there for an hour or so and gone to see characters while he played Captain in the kids clubs.

I can't remember the last time we stayed up past 10 while on a cruise because the rocking of the ship and the comfy beds are just too inviting.

I have yet to go to a stage show on DCL because my son cannot handle the lights & noise. I am really hoping to get to go this next time.

I have yet to see the fireworks on the cruise for the same reason.

We came back from the June 1st cruise and after CC I noticed my DD (2.5) had something in her hand. It was a large shell. We went back on the ship but nobody said anything. The worst thing was I bought one of those DCL coconut cups on CC and put it on the conveyer belt when we re-boarded and it fell over and spilled over the belt and onto the floor. I was so embarrassed.
