Hi everyone. Just booked and paid our deposit today for our Category V room. Very exciting! We are coming over from New Zealand and this is our first cruise. There will be four of us sailing, myself, my DH, DD7 and DS4 and we are really looking forward to meeting some new people and hopefully participating in a FE group!

This is going to be our first time cruising. We've been to Disney World a few times but never a cruise, so excited! Going with DH, DD (14) and DS 11 plus Momto3kidz family and grandparents to the kiddos. Any tips for going with such a big group? There will be 15 of us all together.

Does anyone have a FE group already set up for this cruise? We've been trying to research FE on these boards and sounds kind of cool. Wondering how it gets organized or how we would sign up. Thanks!

There's a thread from the past day or two discussing FE lists, and someone had a really slick looking Google Docs spreadsheet linked in their signature. I can try to find it and post a link when I'm not using my phone.

We would probably be interested in participating in a FE group.

We'd be interested also. We participated in our last cruise and it was so much fun.

We cruised last year with 10 adults and 7 kids. It was so much fun. We had two tables side by side in the MDR's one for kids and one for adults. It worked perfect for us. As far as advice, I would say don't go into it assuming everyone will be together for every activity. We all made it to dinner together which was great but during the other meals/activity we broke off into smaller groups depending on interests. We also tried to get navigators right after di

Sorry I hit send.

As I was saying, we tried to get the daily navigators after dinner (or as soon as possible) and make a game plan the night before for those who wanted to. Several in our group had type A personalities. We used our wave phones a lot! Don't forget to right down room numbers before you board. Finally, the 4 families who were cruising together met prior to the cruise to discuss our individual family expectations. It worked out perfectly and we all had a great trip and came home closer friends. Have a blast planning!
