We're going on our first cruise on the Dream in a couple weeks. It's our first cruise in several years, a three-nighter. Our kids are older now - DS will be 18 in March, and DD is a very mature 16 year old. I'd forgotten that there is no semi-formal night on the 3-nighter, and both kids were really looking forward to dressing up. I'm wondering what the chances are of us sweet-talking Palo into letting the four of us dine together one night? I know they're both under age, and the rules say they're not allowed. Has anyone had any luck with getting Palo to bend the age rules? If so, any tips to share?
