Default Etiquette question

When I see a Princess, am I required to stop/bow?

Well my daughter says we don't have bow in her presence, but a curtsy from the girls and a kiss on the hand from the boys is always appreciated,

I will most definately be wearing my tiara for the whole cruise. However, don't feel the need to bow, just buy me a drink!

I don't require a full on genuflection, but a quick bow and "Your Highness" will suffice. And like Princess Elaine, I view the offer of a drink as a great sign of respect!

Princess Laura, the sweet and innocent

Thanks for clearing that up. I had been worried that I might embarass myself or others by not fully understanding what is proper and customary when you meet a Princess. Rest assured I will now show proper respect.

If that had you laughing.. just wait!

There's not much more bizarre than me in one of Trip's masterful thong creations.

[My head cupped in my hands} All I asked was one simple innocent question. Just one very innocent question. I'm much to innocent to have "thoughts like these"... [Rolling my eyes/crossing my fingers/lookng heavenward/praying SOMEBODY will believe me. But knowing they won't]

Well since the two really evil princess's posted, I feel the need to post and set the record straight. If I remember correctly, all we wished for was a wave back when we did our royal wave to you. Leave it to the other princess's to add "buy me a drink".

Princess Susan....the good one

OK I think I still have it right.

If you meet an Evil Princess you wave and buy a drink.

If you meet a good Princess you wave and smile.

If you meet someone in a Thong and Antlers you RUN.

Now THAT'S FUNNY!! But I think you have it right...

Also, folks, don't be fooled...she may call herself, "the good one", but make sure you ask Princess Susan what it is she's good at!!
Princess Elaine, the quiet, single and not as evil as Princess Susan

What does Royalty do to celebrate a birthday?

Was there a ticker tape parade? A 50 gun salute in front of the palace? A gala dinner in the Grand room?

Whatever it was.. hope it was FUN Princess Elaine!
