Okay someone please help. Sometimes I spend more time here trying to figure out exactly what you all are saying. Please list commonly used acronyms and what they mean. Here I'll start off with the easy ones...and for all I know I may have guessed wrong :)

DD= Dear Daughter?
DS= Dear Son?
CM= Cast Member/ Crew Member?
WBTA = ??????
AFAIK = ??????????


Please list more. I know I have seen a lot and some I just gave up on.

I think we should have our own cruise list of acronyms (aside from the ones that were linked to as they are mainly WDW ones). Let's post all the cruise related ones on this thread.

I sense a sticky in the making. Or a FAQ link. ;)

Here is one I have been trying to figure out for awhile.

Ikea. I know it's a store, but I have seen it used on Disboards in other contexts.

I'm so pleased someone asked this. I know most of the Disboard ones but since venturing over here there a loads more I have struggled with. And like all good holiday makers I think it's only right that I try to learn the native tongue whilst visiting :-)
But for the record I really hate TLAs and hardly ever use them TBH.

Well I know what the stores name stand for, but I guess that doesn't help you ;-)

But I have never seen it used as an anakronym on the board. Hmm now I'm curious.

It may not be within the text often, but it's meaning does show itself often, albeit inferred. :lmao:

IKEA = I Know Everything Already

Encountered others;

CBP - US Customs and Border Protection
CPA - Canaveral Port Authority
