    When you're a little more confident that if you stay up till midnight 120 days before your cruise you may actually be able to grab that precious cabana on CC.
    Also, grab that Palo brunch on a cruise with only one sea day.

    When you walk into a bar and the bartender stops his Cognac Tasting seminar to come out from behind the bar to give you a hug. Or when you walk in the dining room on the first night's dinner and Head Waiters and Servers cause a big commotion because they are happy to see you.

    And to me....THIS is what makes DCL special. :thumbsup2

    When you don't have to look at the menu to order in the Main Dining rooms.
    :rotfl2: Yes!

    On our last cruise we had a server that we have had 4 times now. when I ordered the salad from AP, she asked me "With extra dressing on the side?". That is exactly how I always order that! :scratchin I don't know if it was sheer coincidence or if she really remembered that, but I was shocked!

    When the cruise director recognizes and knows your kids by name following the Castaway Club reception. Also, the closet full of Castaway Club bags as was mentioned above. :)

    My story:
    Went on a family cruise one year with DD, DSiL, DGS (Teen), DW and me had Typhoon from Turkey as our server. 16 months later DW and I made a last minute reservation, went to PC for embarkation lunch, Typhoon saw us walking up to PC, and he came out of line from where the servers were escorting the cruisers to their tables. He served us lunch. We went to the table assignment change meeting, requested Typhoon as our server and it was granted. Typhoon had gone home twice and gotten married during those 16 months, yet he still recognized us.

    Yes - years ago, it used to be that any CC member could go, but I guess as DCL grew and the number of repeat guests grew, they changed it.
