First Time aboard DCL and so excited!

Sailing with DH, DD 12 & DS 4. We've cruised several times on other lines, but this will be our first DCL.

I am interested in the idea of participating in the fish extenders. What determines the number of pockets? Is it the number of members in your family? Must the items traded be Disney related?

As newbies are we invited to attend Disboard activities? Please forgive my confusion as this is all new to me.

I am especially interested to make connections in the hopes that my kids will make some good friends onboard!

Thanks in advance for answering my many questions.

New to Cruise, lots of older kids

I see lots of little ones coming, looking for some older kids who might be coming as well. We are bringing 3 12yos and 2 14yos, and they would love some company!

Also, how do we get involved in the FE?

Welcome susieyarb

Yes, the number of pockets in some way relates to the number of people in your stateroom that are participating in the fish extender exchange. Some people have more than one person per pocket (i.e. mom & dad on one pocket) and some have a pocket for each person.

The items traded don't necessarily have to be Disney related, but often are. On our last cruise we had a family from Canada and they gave us items from Canada (a pencil, postcard, etc.). We also received a set of small bottles to use to bring home sand and/or ocean water. There were a few more non-Disney related items in addition to the Disney related gifts we received.

If there are DISboard activities planned that are posted on this thread, I would think that you would be welcomed to come since you are now a DIS member.

Hope that helps!

Welcome angmpenning

Are your 12 yos boys or girls? I have a 12 yo son who will be on the cruise with us.

If you want to be a part of the FE, then post it on here and you should get added to the list that is on the first part of this thread. I believe I read that someone was going to head this up by setting up a Google document (or something like that) where we could all go in and add our information.

I believe the first 4-night comes back to Galveston today. Right? It's super foggy in Houston today so I wouldn't be surprised if they are delayed but I can't wait to see the Navigators!! So excited...wish it was April 12 already!

All 3 12 yos are girls. One 14 yo boy and a 14 yo girl. But they're not picky!!
