Thank you! I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Now I just have to be patient and wait for an assignment.

Nope. We sail 3 weeks from yesterday. Wow, 3 weeks? Is it really down to that now? I've still so much to do!

Here they are:

Brave
Cars 2 in 2d & 3d
The Help
Muppets
People Like Us
War Horse
John Carter
Chimpanzee
Odd Life of Timothy Green will be PREmEARing 8/15!!!!

FE updates

Hi all! Do we know if the two new families would like in the FE or not? I've got everything done!!! I have 2 extras and I don't know if I should just hang on to them or make them up for the newbies.

I am so excited! I can't believe we leave in 2 1/2 weeks! We did get tickets for the Mariners game. We're in section 340 if anyone wants to find us!

I do believe posts have gone out about both new additions with FE requests. My understanding was that everyone was to email them directly if you were able to add them to your FE gift list. Sounds like you are willing and able : )

Our cruise is almost here... very exciting!

Are you referring to Californiacruisers and Twinklebatteatray?

Those two families both wanted to join. I think HollywoodGlitter forwarded Twinklebatteatray's email to us. I'm just waiting for Californiacruisers' info and then I can add them to my list!

For those of you still waiting for GTY, what category are you booked for?

I have a question for Lesabrowning, but I figured I would ask here, because it may help someone else, too...

My FE gifts are in groups... One for men, one for women (including the 2 teenage girls), one for younger girls, and one for the little boys. Since your dd is 10, I have been going back and forth on her gift! the younger girl gift is not baby-ish at all, but younger than the teen/women gift. Does she tend to like older things, or do you think she would enjoy the younger gift?

Thanks!

Yep! I emailed Twinklebatteatray, but I haven't heard back. I just wondered if maybe they wouldn't do it if they only heard from a handful of people. I haven't PM'd Californiacruisers, but I did say on the forum that I would add them. I was just wondering what the thought process was. I know if I were in their positions, I might pass if only 3 people said they'd add me. Maybe they're still thinking...

Along those same lines... my FE gift is per stateroom, with something extra for the kiddos. Is that ok for the mother/daughter and non-living-together rooms? My husband and I figured since our "gift" is really 4 items, people could pick and choose which things they wanted from it. Does that seem reasonable?

True. I'm prepared either way. Can always give extra stuff to unsuspecting cruisers if need be.

I just PM'd Californiacruisers so we'll see!

Helpful hint for first timer FE participants

Just want to give a heads up to first timers here as I was confused my first time around.

Make sure to double check room numbers and not just go by Fish Extenders on the fish. There are some folks that may participate in their own exchange or, in some cases, there are those that are looking for freebies. Of course if you want to give to those staterooms that were not participants, then more power to you. I just want to make sure all of the FE gifts get to the intended recipients first as we all spent either so much time/money or both on the gifts.

Just a friendly tip.

Of course, there will be upgrades on rooms or whatnot so some rooms will obviously change and I think Hollywood Glitter is covering those updates but aside from those is what is being referred to.

Californiacruisers' sent me an email but about the FE. I'm just waiting on some info from her before I send it out.

Another FE Question!

This is the first time I'm participating in an FE so have a couple questions.

Do you like to know who gave you what? If so, what's the best way to go about letting the receiver know? I was thinking just some type of notecard with the FE gifts when they are placed.

Is there a 'rule' on this?

Thanks for the help!!

This is only our second FE. I did not (yet) include a "from" in the gift, though there is a little hint that it's from Colorado people. I don't know about a "rule". We could make one here. Do people want to know who it's from? I'm ok either way.

This in my first cruise, so obviously I'm new to this fish extender thing. I'm planning on giving my gifts secret santa style. Later on, maybe after the cruise, I might mention a couple of the items that were from me, but I like the anonymous idea, as I think adding a bit of mystery might make this a bit more fun.
