    Here is a confession: On our 11 night Christmas Cruise 2010 my 8 year old son "plugged" our cabin toilet. We told our attendant & he had to call maintenance. It took them 4 hours to unplug it!
    I have several souvenir menus.
    I enjoy waking up very early & wandering around the empty ship!;)
    On our 2012 Christmas Cruise my dad made yummy ice cream "deserts" with coconut rum from Cozumel!

    No. These two items are perfectly fine.
    We bring a big cup with a lid and make milk shakes.

    Enjoy

    Well, this now brings me up to 32 reasons to bring along lysol wipes. Who would have known. :rotfl:

    There have been some stories of people getting out of the showers only to find out that a ship has docked next them, wasn't there before, but now, hello! LOL

    Our son "plugged" out toilet too. But we got several plates of chocolate covered strawberries and arcade game cards for our trouble. Thinking he might have to accidentally plug it again next cruise! (Just kidding!!!)

    Our girl weekend cruise out of NY, we were mixing drinks by the pool, which I think is frowned upon. I didn't feel so bad when a group had their own blender full of Pina Coladas. The first night we all dressed up like Pirates and went to dinner all dressed up. We found out that they didn't have a pirate night on this cruise! We were handing out tattoos to the kids, etc. One kid thought my sister was a cast member. It was hilarious. When we busted in the dining room, thinking everyone else would be dressed up, yelling ARGH!! We were greeted by crickets.....

    We met a couple on our Nov/Dec Fantasy trip that seemed to be quite friendly and gave off a strong "sharing" kind of vibe. :scared: Those last couple of days we didn't use Deck 11 to get from fore to aft, but went down to deck 4 instead just so we wouldn't bump into them. :crazy2:

    My confessions:

    I love the towel animals in general, but hated the monkey, swinging from a hanger. I actually had a nightmare that night that it came to life and attacked me.

    I didn't really like Castaway Cay. So many people, everything far apart, and the adult beach was full of gross seaweed. I begged my DH to go back to the ship early so we could enjoy the Quiet Cove pool and the hot tub in peace.

    And, since he agreed, and since it was our honeymoon, we joined the Veranda Club that night. ;-)

    We will stick to DCL, we booked for 2015 ( we have a dream cruise in a month) and it was around the same cost as what we paid for 2014, we do stick to 4 night disney dream though.. I get motion sickness and dont like going longer. We enjoy DCL and are ok with the cost for what we get.It costs us more to go to disneyworld if we do mod or deluxe which is what I would compare dcl to, plus the parks have gotten a little stale.

    I didn't know it had a name until I read this thread, but it was something DH had his heart set on. :)

    We were on Deck 1 Forward, and often took the forward elevators. I would allow my children to walk quickly and quietly through the adult pool area.

    My funny stories are not mine. A friend's son broke their TV on the Magic last Thanksgiving with his pirate sword. They went to Guest Services and told them what happened. The GS agent responded with "So, your TV is not working?" And my friend said "Yes..... " and tried to explain what happened again, and was interrupted by the GS agent say "So, your TV isn't working? I can put a ticket in to have them look at it". And it finally dawned on my friend what was going on. When they got back from the pirate party they had a new TV, no questions asked.

    My Mother was on the Magic with us last March. I don't know everything she bought at the Gift Shops on board and in port, but it was enough that alarms went off when she disembarked and she was escorted off the ships by US Customs officials. She had to pay about $45 in duties even though almost all her jewelry was made in the US. Unfortunately I was not there to witness it.

    Confession: I told Front Desk about my next door neighbor who smoked a lot at the room's verandah, which DCL does not allow, at least on the recent cruise that I was on. He smoked so heavily that every time I stepped out to the verandah, I would smell the smoke drafting our way. My room is to the aft side of his so that didn't help. The smell gave me a headache.

    I was told by the security officer that he got a warning after they found cigarette butts in his bin.

    But he continued to smoke after that, and we didn't want to complain again. It was a hassle to us (we got calls and knocks on the doors from the people updating us what they have done to follow up on the complaint), so we didn't go out to the verandah as much as we'd like to for that cruise. I so wanted to tell Front Desk again knowing that he will probably get the $250 fine if he is found out.

    I don't blame you at all. Grrr.

    When we were pulling into port on the St. Maarten day, my DH and I were out on the verandah watching, with lots of other people out on theirs. Including, apparently, someone who was smoking. You could smell it bad.

    I stuck my head out and said, loudly, "Whoever is smoking, you do know you're absolutely not supposed to on your verandah, right? If you do know, you also know there's a huge fine if you're caught, if it's reported, RIGHT?" There was some scattered chuckles from bystanders, and I think my DH was embarrassed I was making a fuss, but I didn't smell smoke out on the verandah again.

    (There's no one worse about smoking than an ex-smoker, believe me. :cool1:)

    I don't blame you at all. Our first Disney cruise, we got a verandah and it reeked of cigarette smoke every time we went out there. Didn't matter the time of day, I went out at 4am and there were people smoking. We only booked porthole rooms after that. I'm so excited they banned smoking out there...wish I would have known when I booked our July cruise (hoping to port upgrade but am doubtful there will be anything left).
