    I was under impression there were security cameras monitoring all along the sides of the ship.

    I agree. I am also a vegetarian, actually I am supposedly a pescetarian, because I do eat fish, but no meat. pirate night menu does not appeal to most cruisers that choose not to eat meat. But I love the fireworks, it is a must see every cruise for us.

    No, my servers didn't charge a corkage fee (there was a spout, but they didn't charge for that either). In fact, they brought glasses for everyone. :drinking1

    My DH and I were one of the couples chosen for Match Your Mate while our friends stayed in the audiance. While answering a question during the show, my DH confessed we had joined the Veranda Club during a previous cruise. It took until I got back on stage for it to sink in that DH and I had an inside cabin on that cruise and our friends had the veranda. One look at them and I knew he had actually confessed. Bet they will think twice next time before they give us a spare room key, they were not impressed and neither was the cruise director who happened to be watching. If looks could kill.....

    Note to self, do NOT go on Match Your Mate during a 14 day cruise because you will have to see these people for 12 more nights and they will remember you and comment about it. During the stateroom crawl our DIS group hosted, everyone felt the need to point out their veranda and asked if we wanted some alone time there. I spent the whole cruise blushing!

    And it doesn't end when the cruise ends, on the EBTA this May, a man stopped DH and I and asked if we were the couple on Match Your Mate from the EBPC cruise in December.

    We confess we honor Disney's requests for courtesy (dining attire, saving seats, etc.), and we don't steal (to take home) the items they supply for us to use on the ship (toiletries, silverware).

    And, we don't pay money for a bottle of water!

    Cameras that scan the verandas? What? I bet the security that watch those cameras get shows every night. Now I know I will never become a member of the club.

    We have a veranda on the back of the boat. Wonder I cameras will cover our room back there?

    I'm not sure they scan. I think they are permanent (meaning just stationary), looking down the side of the ship to the water line. I could be wrong. My kids tell my that daily. :thumbsup2 My dog even looks at me like "no, you did not feed me. Feed me again."

    We are not big Disney fans.

    I'm not sure what compelled me to book our 2011 cruse for my DS's 5th birthday, but we did. I've been hooked on DCL ever since. But we are not devoted Disney people.

    I mean, we like it ok, just like everyone does...

    Universal Studios is as big of a draw as Disney World is for us.

    I'm sure in particular in aft. When that couple was lost at sea in Australia on a CCL, they were able to watch the videos to see that she jumped off the veranda and he went in to try to save her. :( I'm sure that kinda thing happens more towards the back..

    This is seriously the best thread EVER!

    I am so glad (and frankly surprised) that all the grumpy "I am perfect" people have stayed quiet!!!

    I was trying to think of what I have done...

    Exotic rasul
    Full box of toiletries at home, so sad about Body Butter now
    Shells from CC

    Never saved a seat in the theater because we are never on time :rotfl:

    LOVE the big round chairs

    And last, I love the Magic, done the Dream several times, but still love the Magic most!

    LOVE seeing all the characters no matter how many times I have been to WDW, DL or DCL! Especially seeing Minnie in all her different outfits...

    One other time I took a beach excursion and wandered down to a secluded end of the beach when I noticed a dolphin in distress had beached itself. It was clearly trying to breathe but something was blocking its airway. As I got closer, I could see something in there...I reached in and pulled out 5 or 6 ping pong balls!

    Man, the fresh caught "mahi-mahi" was good that night ;)

    On one of our first Magic cruises many years ago our family had a busy day and we were all on our own for lunch. I was getting sick of the fast stuff on deck 9 so I decided to head to Parrot Cay for the buffet. So I walked up by myself and the host said "Single?" and I said yes... thinking that he was just asking if it was just me alone for lunch.

    Well, he proceeded to take me to a big table with a couple of the entertainment cast members and about 10 other people. I had inadvertently stumbled into the 'Cruising Single' mixer lunch. I awkwardly ate and made as little polite small talk as possible knowing my DW and 5 kids were on board!

    I ate quickly and was the first to leave... I will never forget the cast member saying "did we scare you off?" as I left!

    Oh, and I pee in the stateroom showers.

    My DW is one of the compulsive H2O product hoarders. We have overflowing boxes, bags, etc. of them at home. I've never understood this - perhaps it is preparation for some apocalypse where having nice hair and skin will be critical survival skills?

    So, about a year ago I took half of them and gave them to my mother-in-law to use at her 2nd home... and DW never even had a clue they were gone!
