Yay!!!

Wow!!! I can't believe I read this ENTIRE thread!!! I'm not sure when I started but I think it took me over a week.

I've found some really great tips and lots of good info.

I have a question for those more experienced cruisers. If you are bringing alcohol, water, and/or soda in your carry-on, what exactly are you using for your carry-ons? This sounds so heavy!

Thanks in advance!

Many people use rolling carryon bags. Others just a "regular" carry on type, or backpack.

One note, no need to bring water onboard. The water onboard is processed just like most bottled water (reverse osmosis and filtered) and tastes fine.

If your three children are sailing with you, they will sign all three. If the children are not with you, it is only two per stateroom. My DH and I sailed without the kids and took three cases. They would only accept two to be signed. They said they only make exceptions if there are more than two children in the room.

Thanks!

Thanks for all these great tips!
I have read several posts, but not the entire thread, so I'm sorry if this was already discussed.

Regarding the photo mats: what is the smallest sized photo mat that I could bring still have room for the signatures? Would a mat for a 5X7 be too small? How about a mat for an 8x10? Is there a zip lock bag big enough for a large mat?

Also, should I state landscape vs portrait?

Thanks!

I used a 5x7 mat but it was in an 8x10 frame so it was much wider. Plenty of room.

I fit an 8x10 mat into a gallon sized ziplock bag with the markers. I can't remember if I stated landscape or Portrait. I just picked a picture from the bunch at Shutters that fit, ours was signed Portrait and we have a really nice family photo on the staircase from the dream that fit perfectly in there. I did draw a line in pencil around the mat and asked that they stay inside so we could see all the signatures in full view, without any if them being hidden behind the frame (cuz part of the mat is covered by the frame) and they did as asked!

This next cruise I think I'll do pillow cases for all the kids, and use an iron on photo or have one screen printed on them.

I am thinking of gifting 8x10 mats for 5x7 pics as part of my fe with maybe the name of our cruise on the bottom and some markers, would this be a good gift?

I love that idea! My daughter has been playing with crayons since about a year old - maybe even younger - so I would around 1 would be ok esp bc you said they are large.

And I agree with you - I'm 32 and color as much as my daughter lol

OK so I have a question about the signatures on the pillowcases... Does the signature bleed through to the other side if I use a permanent marker? Or does Disney take care of that issue? Just didn't know if there would be a problem with this. TIA

For t-shirts or pillow cases, place a thin sheet of cardboard inside and then there isn't a bleeding issue.
