It's been a few years since we've been on the Norway, but I recall during the dinner hours they have a strolling chamber-type quartet in the dining room. Have the violinist tie your ring with a beautiful ribbon to his bow and have them approach your table playing "Ode to Joy" or some other wedding tune. Have the violinist dip his bow to your gals' eye line then fall to your knee and let it fly. If they don't have the strolling band, find the Cruise Director and tell him what you want to do. I'm sure that they would be happy to oblige. Love on cruise ships is very important to them. Good luck. You puill this one off and you'll have all opf the eyes for that night and be the talk of a few more nights.

She said no and he's too crushed to come back and tell us.

Or, more likely, after the cruise he just forgot all about this site. Bummer, I was looking forward to hearing his story!

Michelle - optimist - half full.
Jay - pessimist - half empty.

Default Re: THE RESULT

Hello everyone! I accidently emailed the guy who was purposing and found out the results of the proposal...( he asked me to post this as he had lost his password to get back into the site)

FROM: R127:
We had bad weather for the first couple of days so it was a rough ride. I went and spoke to a guy doing all the seating arrangements for dinner and got all 12 of our family at the big table in the center of the Windward dining room. I also told him I needed help with the arrangements so he told me to talk to the maidre de (sp?) . During the first nights dinner a guy came to the table with the maidre de and told him I needed help with arrangements in front of everybody! I figured everything was ruined but I think he knew by the look on my face that they goofed up. Luckily I played it off with my girlfriend by saying that I was doing something for the four b-days and anniversary we were celebrating that week. I needed to talk to the maidre de alone but was never able to get away to do it so I started thinking I would propose alone on our balcony before the formal dinner. Luckily my ,other and sister found the maidre de and set something up for me and they gave him the ring. I really didn't know what he was going to do or when. I was nervous throught the whole dinner and couldn't really eat. The rough plan was to have the ring brought out during dessert on a silver platter. When dessert came and the ring didn't I really got nervous! Finally I saw him walk through the room with a plate with the ring on top. He walked up behind her and told her he had something special for her and then set in down on the table. He had written on the plate, " Will you marry me" with the ring in the box sitting on the plate. It took her a second to read it and realize what was going on. All she could say is of course she would. It was very cool although not exactly what I had in mind.

See, Jay, my optimism does pay off sometimes!

You win Michelle. If we ever get on the same ship together, the champagne is on me. Oh yeah, and your glass will never be half empty.

Just have to say - my heart skipped a beat when I read your post- just WISHING you were my boyfriend, but... after looking at your e-mail address I sadly discovered- you obviously aren't.
Anyway, good luck, and your girlfriend is very lucky!
