If it does split, there is nothing saying you can't deliver to everyone. That's what we are planning to do.

What about those of us that aren't participating...no trinkets for us...I can't take the chance with the luggage...it's a 100 for every extra piece and my DH had two bags just for a 3 day

Just because someone gives you something doesn't mean you have to take it home

And maybe you need to repack for your DH after he packs

DH bought one of those handheld luggage scales which is pretty accurate.

When we left from BCN in 2007, the man at the airport would pick up luggage and tell you if you were over without a scale. And when you actually put your bag on the scale, he was right.

We have the scale and it's accurate...it's not bringing the stuff home, it's bringing it there that's the issue...trust me, 4 people, 4 suitcases, I don't think that's unreasonable, but I don't want to have more than that. For a two week trip ( I know you'll be away longer) that we need multiple types of outfits (casual, fancy, etc) I didn't want to take a chance...plus with so many families, there's no way...you're going to need a suitcase just for the FE and I'm not paying the $100 for a bag to bring FE's. I just think for us, this year, we need to abstain.

I'm going to set up a poll to let folks decide. If I can figure out how to do it today I'll let you know.

Ah, I thought you meant your DH took two suitcases just for himself. We are packing three and a half suitcases for this trip (the half is just a smaller version of the other three larger ones). Our FE gifts are lightweight and don't take up more than the size of a larger shoebox - we plan our FE gifts based on how much room we'll have to take them - when we are driving to Port Canaveral and it doesn't matter, there are different things than when we are flying and have weight restrictions or have to pay for bags. It's nice to not have to pay for bags going to Europe - we went on our Alaska trip with just two suitcases. Of course we always do laundry so we can pack less. And I will say that one part of our FE gifts for Alaska we actually picked up in Vancouver rather than flying it over.

That's smart...we always go overboard on FE...I just never know what to do and don't want to look like the "cheap gift"...it's just easier this time to stay out of it....but would definitely be interested in seeing what you did and get ...it's great to see it

I plan to mail my FEs over along with some dry goods.

I am mailing one to where we are staying prior to the cruise and one box (limited to 20 lbs) to the Ship's docking area.

Would you like the details?

Just let me know and I will send you the information.

Bringing wine on board

I was wondering if you could bring wine on board? Wife and I would like to get some nice wine in Italy and other countries. Just wondering if you could bring any wine you buy on shore excursions back on board to drink?

This is a message for Disname 'Mineu'!!!

I have sent a PM without response so I'm hoping that this reaches Anne and family.

You all are currently listed as 'maybe' for the FE exchange. We need to know ASAP if this is a 'yes' or 'no'. The FE Exchange listing 'closed' yesterday (April 5) so if we don't hear from you quickly, I'm afraid we'll have to assume it is a 'no'.

I hope to hear from you all!!! We don't want you to miss out on the FE exchange!

We bought wine and brought it back on. It was hard to bring it back to the US, because we didn't want it to break.

So, we are planning to bring an empty wine box with the foam.

I also bought olive oil and limoncello and they all survived.

If you plan to open the bottle of wine for dinner at your MDR, there's a corkage fee and they can save it for the following night for you and your family. Just remind them or they will throw it out.

Smile FINAL NUMBERS for the FE exchange

Here are the final numbers: (this assumes that Mineu is a 'yes' - 2 adults and 2 children under 18)

total number of adults: 112

total number of children under 18: 53

total number of staterooms: 55 (NOTE: 6 of these are families that listed 2 staterooms so if you do one 'family' FE gift, the total is 49)

I will be re-organizing the list by Deck and inserting any GTY room assignments as I hear from folks. The final list will be made available no later than June 1. Currently I have 5 GTY staterooms listed. Also...if folks get upgraded at the port, perhaps that information can be shared at the Meet.
