    No confessions I just wanted to say how impressive I think the example your setting for your kids is. The two greatest gifts parents can give their children (in my opinion) is 1.) Parents are people and have the right to their own lives and dreams alongside their children. 2.) A solid representation of what a healthy relationship looks like.

    Kudos

    We were not impressed with Palo. There was nothing romantic about our dinner there. There was a loud, large party for one of the ship's officers during our entire meal. (Everyone doesn't dress for Palo, the couple that was between us and the windows were dressed very casual, almost sloppy. They had sports clothing on.)

    Thanks for the comment on Palo, I thought maybe I was the only one that wasn't impressed with it. We regularly eat a very nice places in our town and in Las Vegas and others, so I was really looking forward to it. I just wasn't impressed at all. Our server went on and on about how many hours he works (he didn't realize he was talking to a couple of tax accountants and this was right after tax season, we put in multiple 100 hour weeks). We felt bad that we might be causing him more work. The other thing was the dress code, I understood that men needed to have a jacket on there, I was one of only a few that actually had one on, I was suprised. We were on the WBPC Cruise, we had supper and brunch at Palo. We actually ate at Palo on the exact day of our 25th wedding anniversary, and we were both disappointed that they did absolutely nothing for our big day, nothing, I mentioned it to them when we sat down. Everyone goes on and on about Palo, I know we won't do it again.

    I confess I did not wear underwear under my kilt on the formal or semi formal nights.

    I too will not go back to Palo for Dinner. It is way over hyped on these boards. I do love the brunch and will continue to go to that. The dinner on the other hand really isn't that much better than the MDR, well at least in my opinion. Since now, cause we are Platinum, I am not going to waste my free meal there on dinner and it sure is not worth $20. That free meal is going to be Brunch only. Of course people will disagree. That's cool. You can all you want, that's just the way I feel.

    Wow.... I feel awful....
    1. I hoarded EVERYTHING bathroom product wise into my suitcase everyday so we could put it in our spare bathroom... Guest love it.

    2. We brought our own alcohol but I never drank it because I felt guilty... Next time I will be taking my ice cubes from Skyline with plastic martini glasses with all of my own stuff to make my own Paris 75 or whatever it is!

    Remember that thread about the last people on the ship?

    Yeah. That was us.

    It was Key West, and DH and I had walked to the Southernmost Point. On the way back, he wondered, "How many beers back is it, ya think?" Answer: A Lot. :rotfl2:

    We had stopped in front of this table set up near the gangplank, and I was looking at shells with names on them, etc. When we went up to the gangplank, the CM let us know we were the very last people to board. I commented that we still had 15 more minutes before the "all aboard" time, and she repeated that we were still the LAST. :rotfl2:

    To make it even funnier, I thought it was formal night. We hurried to get cleaned up and ready. When DH had trouble tying his tie, he said, "perhaps I should skip dinner." LOL! So I went to dinner alone and had a good laugh with my server when 1) I noticed nobody else was dressed for formal night, and 2) my server admitted he and some other CM's had cruised NCL to Hawaii after their last contract, and had ALSO been the last to board one night for the very same reason...;)

    We sailed on the Dream this past New Year's, and on NYE they were handing out free champagne in these really nice heavy duty plastic champagne flutes that had blue stems and the DCL logo and New Year's Eve 2012. My mother and I decided on the way back to the room to collect some of the ones left behind. We have a set of 8, and to this day mom will open the cupboard, see them, and sigh that we should have thought to make it a set of 12 XD

    Same cruise, my brother and I were playing shuffle board, and he sent one hard as he could to try to knock mine out. Needless to say, he missed, and it went flying down the deck to the absolute other end of the ship, past a lot of very amused guests. Same game he also bounced one weirdly and almost sent it over the side. Yikes!

    Love this thread!

    I develop a huge crush on all of our male servers. I'm pretty sure it's just the idea of a man being at my immediate beck and call- but still... It happens every time.:blush:
    i also tend to live vicariously through all of the DCL staff that we keep in touch with. Possibly an unhealthy level of concentration goes into studying every FB picture and post. Not quite stalker-ish, but closer to it than I would admit to most folks (though I know you ALL understand!!)

    And I totally get both of you :). I just wish I had thought to get their FB info, email, or something.

    My uncle was in the Scottish military and he told me some stories about kilts that shocked me. I was 14 and naive but still :rotfl2:

    I just want to thank all my fellow DISers. After what was probably one of the worse days I've had in recent memory, I decided I needed a little distraction and thought I would visit the boards. I came upon this thread, and I have to say I am so glad I did. I haven't laughed so hard since I cant remember when. Keep them coming popcorn::
