1. How many days before embarkation should the FE list be closed?
a. 30days
b. 60days
c. 90days

2. Should the FE be broken into small groups?
If you answered yes to #2 then how many cabins/people should each group contain?

3. If you answered NO to #2, what would your thoughts be on two larger groups, if the number of people gets to be very large? (this comes from the Dream Maiden and the Hawaii cruise in 2012 - both FE lists were/are well over 100 cabins)

FE's - 30 days out I feel bad when new people come on line too late to join.
Keep one group unless we get larger. My last FE group was around 30 cabins.
I don't think I would like to do any thing bigger than that.

Thanks

My answers are very similar to this.

1. 30 days out (for the same reason as above)
2. 1 group unless it gets really large
3. about 30 cabins is my limit too. The Dream cruise I took was 37 cabins (with 68 children among them). I did it, but don't want to repeat that.

FE list updates....

Good morning folks - I hope that everyone has a safe holiday weekend, please be careful - way too many folks indulge in adult beverages then think they can drive....I wouldn't want to loose any new friends before we actually get to meet!!!

https://spreadsheets.google.com/spre...hl=en_US#gid=0
On a happier note...here is this weeks updated FE list link:


If you wish to join the FE exchange please PM me with the following information:

your Dis name
your real world name
your cabin number
anyone who is traveling with you
ages of any children
any special needs or information (such as allergies or gift restrictions)

In the subject line of the PM please cut and paste this:
FE list addition: NY to Nassau 8 day cruise

at one point I was collecting email addresses, but the online version of the document seems to be working very well. If you would like me to email it to you please include your email address. I will NOT post or share it, I keep an offline version of the document and will not put email addresses on the Google Doc version.

I have received these votes for the cutoff date for the list:
30 days: 2 votes
60 days: 2 votes -- one of these could be 30...cabin is split on decision!

group size (if applicable):
30 cabins: 1 vote
one group no specific size: 3 votes

Feel free to weigh in on either issue!

Total number of cabins to date: 13

I plan on updating the list on August 1st...As we get closer I am sure more folks will join the FE exchange...then I will post more often.

Cayla

Hi Cayla,

I was just looking at this post and realized you have the wrong group listed for your FE list. We are the 5 day NY to Canada, not the 8 day NY to Nassau! You are taking too many cruises, you lucky girl! I'm jealous!

DD totalled her car yesterday. She and I are fine. [Except for jabs from DH.]
Good thing cruise is a year away. Hopefully we can absorb the extra cost by then.
