Smile What is the average number of fish extender gifts to prepare? (Fantasy July 2014)

I am trying to get ready for our summer cruise, and I want to start buying supplies to make fish extender gifts. I joined a group, but being this early, it's hard to know exactly how many will be in the exchange group. Any ideas on how many adult and kid gifts I would need to prepare? Thanks!

There is really no way of knowing. FE groups can be quite large (one cruise we had over 60 rooms participating and so, we divided the group into 4 parts (15 rooms each). Other cruises can be quite small (I've read where there have been only 6 rooms in a FE). And, your group can decide whether the gifts are to be per room (so a lower number) or per person (a higher number). Some people do separate child gifts, but one adult gift per room. Other groups will deliver once a cruise, while some will deliver twice per cruise.

Some FE groups don't divide the rooms up. We prefer the larger groups of staterooms. On the PC repo there were around 120 rooms and on our spring break cruises the past two years we have had 50+ rooms. It's your choice if you will do a family gift or an individual gift, so that would affect the number of items you would need to prepare.
