    The Palo dress code does specify "no capris", however many people read the dress code as what's required for dinner. And the dress for brunch is a bit less formal, for the most part.

    That said, capris may or may not be allowed, depending on the maitre'de working the door. I've seen them admitted, and I've seen them turned away.

    If you bring capris for brunch at Palo, be sure you have a backup, if you need it.

    I was on the Dream last month, and actually called Palo right before our dinner, I asked if capris are acceptable...her response was, yes, just not jean capris:thumbsup2. So there you have it!

    I'm not sure I want to confess my "Bad PArent of the Year" incident....but here goes.
    After losing my dear mother in law to brain cancer at 63, and 10 months later dear father in law to a heart attack at age 67 - my family decided we needed a lot of Magic. So we took a much needed vacation and spent a week at WDW followed by a week on the Magic EC in Jan 2011 trip. The week on the cruise we spent with good friends of dh's from the military who had a ds a year older than my dd and they had a dd a year older then my ds.
    In AP on the last night (we had late seating), I encouraged my ds 3 1/2 to eat all his pasta and I would buy him the big toy he wanted from the store. He is not a good eater and every night the servers would bring our friends daughter 2 meals and she would eat like a pro while ds would not eat hardly anything. So on the last night, I encouraged him - eat all your pasta and you will have the big toy! I can't recall now what the toy was...so ds was so excited. He ate every piece of macaroni. The server commented how proud he was, we all laughed and cheered him on.....UNTIL.....ds started to vomit. Projectile vomit..
    all the macaroni all over. EVERYWHERE. on his clothes, on me, on his plate, on the table cloth...I was mortified. The adults hadn't even been served meals yet. Our friends thought it was so funny. DS was fine, he just ate too fast. I felt horrible. Worse was our luggage was put out and already gone, all we had was our clothes for the next day.
    I scooped him up and headed for the stateroom. The server followed me wanting to make it right, asking to sent my meal there but I was already racing out. What happened after I left, I know because our friends took lots of pictures. Men in suits and helmets came to the table; SPACE MEN they looked like - biohazard suits came to the table to clean up the mess and replace the linens, the dishes and all the silverware. Then they reset the table and all the food. Apparently no one from the other tables even flinched.
    DS and I cleaned up, we went straight to the store and bought the toy, and then headed back to the dining room - I could barely look at anyone. But the servers were so happy to see us, they welcomed ds and quickly brought food out and acted like nothing happened.
    The kids still talk about the "Space Man" at dinner.....
    And I never use bribes for eating anymore - learned my lesson :eek::eek::eek:

    Hope people don't find it unacceptable to walk around with my super big-gulp mug and empty unfinished drinks lying around to save money from buying alcoholic drinks.

    This is one of my favorite threads. Ever.

    My confession:

    On our recent Dream 4 night cruise, I spent the majority of the day at the Conched Out Bar making friends with the bartenders. When someone would come up and order a drink during the 2 for 1 time period... many times, they wouldn't want the additional drink.

    I left the bar slightly... okay, VERY tipsy. Luckily, by the time I reached the ship, it had worn off. Until I went to Meridian that night where my wife and I watched Castaway Cay float away while Alex poured us martini after martini.

    So... I guess what I'm confessing to is not remembering dinner at all that night.

    Your dress us stunning!! Where did you get it?? I always have an issue as to where to go to get a dress for formal night. Was looking for something different and this dress is amazing. Do they sell more like this? Very nice! :goodvibes

    This is hilarious!

    My confession- I went on the Dream in February without my kids. I lied and told them we were going to Las Vegas.

    I just asked for two glasses at one of the bars and took them back to the cabin. Just be sure and put them in a cupboard or your cabin steward will take them when they clean your cabin.

    I must confess shame faced that on my four day cruise on the dream and I didn't see my teens or my six yr old DS from breakfast to dinner pretty much every day, and not once did I feel guilty about it. I did try to go liberate my youngest the first day, but he didn't want to leave, so I went to the quiet cove instead!

    Hi. I'm Dbarker. I, too am a shampoo, conditioner, lotion hoarder. I, also, hoarded the bathroom amenities provided by DCL. :rotfl2::rotfl2:

    However; we had a fertilizer plant explosion in a town near us not too long ago. I donated ALL of my stash to the victims. I didn't even look to see what I would be missing.

    Now, I have to start all over w/ this next cruise. :thumbsup2

    oh dang, here goes:

    1) I've picked up abandonded (and yes, I am sure they were abandonded) souvenir drink cups (like from the sailaway drink of the day cups). I have both the cocktail ones and a coffee mug one (from Alaska cruise).
    BUT -- I don't use them again until I've run them through my dishwasher after getting home. :goodvibes

    2) We always bring our own alcohol onboard... we always bring a glass VERY full to dinner. Although we have been known to buy a bottle also. :rolleyes:
    We get glasses from a bar... just ask... Wine or champagne.
    I have also brought it to the pool deck in some kind of unbreakable container.

    3) We have brought soft sided coolers to fill with ice to keep our "brought onboard" stuff cold. (We have only been on the classic ships so far... no refrigerators). YES, one leaked... water on the floor...:scared1: We used towels after that, but feel guilty that we may have contributed to the ban.:guilty:
    4) Oops, one of our "over the door" shoe holders did scratch the paint at the door frame top. Dang, think we contributed to the ban of these too. SORRY!:guilty::guilty: (Double guilty!)

    Great thread! I wish I had something to confess...but I'm picking up some good ideas from all of you so I guess my confessions will have to wait until after Sept. ;)
