You just used regular sharpies? I was afraid they would bleed and I thought I read they faded with wash.

A person on my cruise next week called and asked. You are allowed to do 1 item per person in your stateroom.

That's what they say....but we took two pillow cases for our two boys and had no problems. We had a friend with an embroidery machine stitch the boys' names in Waltograph font with the cruise dates and ship. They are asleep on them right now. So glad we did it.

One more thing I didn't see posted... If someone offers you a drink, it's free! I didn't know that one until after the Sail Away party. The drinks are complementary at the Sail Away party and at the Captain's reception.

I would see why not. We are going to try it for our next cruise which is a 4 nighter.

Free drinks at the Sail Away party? Are you sure? How could I miss that?

They certainly were not free at our sail away party on the dream in November maybe it's a new thing?

Wow! That was my first time using the boards and what great responses! I'll ask another question to which I can't easily find an answer. If I join a fish extender (FE) group, what type of gifts would people suggest giving? What have you given and received?

We have not had any problems with fading so far, but I have had issues with other fabric markers fading to the point of not being able to see what was on it. I suppose anything would begin to fade after enough washing. They will bleed through if your pillow case is thin. We had a fairly thick one that we used and it did not bleed at all.

We were told that each stateroom was only allowed two items no matter how many people are in it when we took our cases to the desk to turn them in. They said they only make exceptions if there are more than two children booked in the stateroom.

There is a thread titled "Homemade FE Gifts - Part 2" that has tons of ideas. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2907032 Pinterest also has some great boards. We are making a travel game kit for our next cruise and made cruise specific bookmarks for our last. Our boys got autograph books, tote bags, magnets, key chains, buttons, silly bands, you name it. There are lots of options out their for the crafty and the not so crafty. I would definitely participate in your cruise FE exchange. We have some friends that are Castaway Club members and had never done it and we vaguely familiar with it. Our kids loved it and we did too! Plus making the FE gifts was a good way to get excited about the upcoming cruise.

We were on the Fantasy for Christmas and they took our pillow cases with no problems.

We were on the Fantasy on November 30th and they took and signed two photo mattes for us. They both turned out great!
