    Hum...I'm wondering if it is a confession or not that two of my FB friends are previous CMs (one of our servers and one of the merchandise hosts) :)

    :thumbsup2 What I would love to have accidentally slip into my bag are the children's plates at the buffet (the divided ones with the DCL logo around the edges). I would love to use those for dinner every night :rotfl2: Not for my kids...for ME! :cool1: :cool1:

    What I'm afraid to admit (and I think I already did on this thread) is that I remember all our servers names and I good amount of Merchandise Host's names. But I have some great memories (in the form of Magical Moments certificates) that I have received from them. And I always go looking in the shops right away when we get on board to see if any of the same ones are there :woohoo:

    Ok, after reading and :rotfl: with all of the other confessions I must now add mine:
    Having been on 7 DCLs I have done as previous mentioned:
    Brought on booze, sometimes lots, used plastic cups to take drinks to the pools and dinner.
    Taken a collection of H2O products home - DW does put them in boxes for kids, in Haiti, at Christmas.

    New confessions:
    Left the ship with more booze, than I brought on. Won some in drawings, given some as a stateroom gift, and what we purchased on the islands.
    Made up a name to give to the announcers as I arrive on the ship to get a laugh out of the CMs standing around clapping.
    Was mooned by a passing boat (several people) while in port at PC.

    Went on the Magic the very first year of service back in '98. Everyone was checking in but no one was getting in-line, this was back before the boarding numbers. I told DW that at a certain time if no one was going to start the line I would. At that time I went to the head of the line, DW had the video running, and you should see the line form, people running from all over the terminal to get in-line. DW and I were the first people introed on that cruise.
    Thank you to all the good people that are running in the terminal, for the continued laughs.

    Do NOT splash in the water! - At CC-SB, DW is on a raft about 20 yards out, I take the camera and start walking out to take her picture. I see all the little fishes scatter, look around and see a 2-3 foot Black Tip Shark swimming around. DW is using her hands to move the raft creating small splashes. The shark turns toward her, I tell DW to stop cause I see a shark. What does DW do? She jumps off the raft causing a bigger splash! I have to run to get between her and the shark.

    Neither did we when we went on the cruise 30 years ago. (Obviously not DCL) He was great and all, but it's not like we exchanged holiday cards or anything. (And we had him for the whole cruise. I guess really the unique thing with DCL is the rotation thing? Because we certainly had the same server for that entire cruise in the same restaurant.)

    Two weeks ago on the Transatlantic I went back to my room in the middle of the day, door was open and the host was cleaning the bathroom. I was beat so went in and laid on the bed anyway, host walked into the main room, and OMG THAT'S NOT MY HOST and OM friggin G that isn't my stuff on the dresser. I was in the wrong room! Accidentally got off the elevator at 7 instead of 6 and just made myself at home on their bed. As I was rushing out I told the host "this never happened, we will never speak of it again".

    I also was on the elevator when it stopped mid-trip to let more people on. It was a family with two SCREAMING kids (one was flailing and kicking too). I acted like I got confused and hit the door closed button instead of door open one. My 5 year old was super judge-y on that one and I do admit feeling bad now but they were LOUD and I had 5 more floors to go.

    I'm not sure which is funnier... I cannot imagine figuring out you're in the wrong room while lying in the bed...may have just peed myself a little!

    Ok. Here it goes.
    I don't like Pirate Night.
    I have never been to the cast off celebration.
    I feel better and yet bitterly judged.

    I am with you in regards to Pirate Night. Time for it to go bye bye. As for sailaway, been there done that but I think its good for first time cruisers. I am usually at the hot tub. Ok as for my confessions. I can't stand Animators Palette. Now I have only been on the classics, but if you know anything about stage lighting you will know how it's done and it's the oldest trick in the book. Simple change from foreground to background lighting. Ho hum. I so think Palo dinner is way, way, way overrated

    Our AP on the Dream was anything but a simple lighting change, and Magic will be getting the Fantasy upgrade which will make it better than that. BIG difference here soon.

    Actually I am not a fan of what I know on the new ships either. I am there to eat. Not to talk to some turtle or draw pictures to be animated. All in all I just don't like it.

    I am not a huge fan of the shows...don't hate me!!! I did enjoy Villains Tonight just because watching my des watch it was priceless. I think I fell asleep in Dreams. I also do not enjoy the MDRs sometimes. I am really a simple food kind of girl. And we have never friended a server on FB... LOL!! I'm sure ill be flamed for any or all of these claims.

    Okay, you opened a floodgate in me and I'm ready to confess:

    We get a verandah on DCL to avoid the whole Sailaway mess on deck and have our own quiet sailaway celebration.

    Never seen the Pirate show on Pirate night (don't like crowds) and don't like the Pirate night dining menu either. I'd rather they did away with the whole Pirate thing and replaced it with something - anything - else.

    I'm not a fan of rotational dining - I'd rather just have 1 nicely decorated dining room.
