One of the best things that I wish I could bring, but won't due to weight and the fact it would be in a glass jar would be a Texas hot sauce or salsa of some sort.

I will be thinking of things to bring. I can't wait!

Thanks again!

Shelley
I am glad I could be of some help.
I just counted the people (adults and kids) and at the moment there are 18 staterooms with 71 people in them, including you.
There is also a link at the bottom of my first post with the details.

Hot sauce and salsa sounds like something really interesting. Are there any "trial" size containers?

I was able to download the names and everything. I will see if they have some small sizes of Salsa or Hot Sauce, but I won't be carrying 60 some bottles. I might bring a few, we'll see.

I will start buying things now, with the ages of the kids in mind and things like that. I am almost close to my posting "limit" to be able to PM you. :-)

I had a revelation while I was getting ready for work today. I KNOW what I am going to do for the adults and kids for the Fish Extenders gifts! It is something that is pretty transportable and hopefully people will enjoy them! Now to make the list so I don't forget what I want to do!

YEAH! I am excited now, because I was kind of scared before and now it is going to be fun and easy!

Amy, don't worry, I haven't done this either and Karin has been nice enough to include me and to explain to me how this works. She will help you out as well! I can't wait for this trip!

And it really helps to look on this site for information regarding the excursions as well as information regarding the ship. If you know your stateroom there might even be information regarding your room so you know what to expect.

I have figured out some of the things I am going to start making or buying for the FE gifts! Now to making an actual Fish Extender!

Karin

I tried to PM you, not sure if you received it. Please let me know. I was trying to give you the Deck number and stateroom numbers.

Also, for the "fish" of the Fish Extender, are they already on the ship and people just hang the extenders from them? Or do you bring something to hang the extender from it?

Good to hear that it worked!
Small size bottles might make nice stateroom gifts if you want to go that route.

Doesn't it feel great to know what to give? I like to hear fun and easy - that's the way it should be!
The site is pretty informative, this will be our 11th DCL cruise and there are still things I need to read up on!

But never the less, if you have any more questions, PLEASE feel free to ask them here.

Creating your actual "extender" will be a lot of fun too!

Shelley, I got your PM and have already updated the list in my first post!

Yes, the Fish (Seahorse, depending on which side of the ship you will be) are already on the ship.
They are fixtures next to your stateroom door, for DCL to leave you notes (like restaurant reservations, airline checking , spa appointments). You hand your extender on it, so it "extends" the fish.



This is a photo of our stateroom door, taken during our 2011 sailings.

Great to have you on board for the cruise and the FE exchange.
I am going to put you on the list (at the end in my first post!) There is also a lot of information about FE in my first post. If you still have any more questions, just post them here.
The only other thing I will need is your stateroom number, if you already know it.

Karin,
Thanks for adding me to the list. i do have a question though. For the fe gifts do we do a gift per stateroom or do we do a gift per person per stateroom for example since it is sarah and I participating do we do 2 gifts? I will get you my stateroom number probably tomorrow. Do you tell us what day to deliver our gift or do we decide that? I know all these questions. I am getting really excited about making my extender and gifts!

Amy

It was explained to me that it is up to the "giver" if they want to do per person or per stateroom. Also that you could give one gift during the whole trip OR you could do a gift per night. It is really up to each person. I am trying to find inexpensive ideas to give each person one gift per night. It won't be something really expensive or big, but something that I think each person might like. My only "real" problem is trying to find something for the men in the cabins. Something they would appreciate, may be something they can use or at least enjoy. I have seen a few ideas though. So, I might consider them.

I hope I helped a bit.

I think we will just do 2 gifts one from Sarah and one from me but put it one bag per stateroom and just do one night. Thats about all I can handle

Karin my stateroom is 8563

You know, I might just do the same. Basically one gift per stateroom and maybe once or twice during the cruise. I think it will just be a wait and see situation I think.

It is up to you what kind of gift and how many gifts you want to give. This should be a fun thing to do, not something to stress about.
Whatever you feel comfortable with is what you should do. Tom and I give 4 individual gifts (BEWARE ... small ones!!!!) to each cruiser. If we come up with another fun idea (have one at the back of my head ) we might do 5 or 6. So far we have handed them out daily, not sure if we will not do two gifts every other day this time.
I will NOT tell you when to deliver your gifts. You do it whenever it feels convenient to you. The only thing to consider is to NOT wait until the evening of the last day, as people need to pack.
Don't worry about asking questions, better to ask than worry about something.

I am sure you will come up with something great. Gifts for teenage boys and men are the hardest.

Yeah, you found a solution! That's just perfect!
I added your stateroom number to the list.

As I said before, whatever you feel comfortable with. I guess this group will still grow so we decided to do two gifts every other night and not "exercise" every day - hey, we are on vacation.

I have some really cute ideas that I can't wait to do.

Do you put your name on the gifts or anything that indicates who it is from? or is it a surprise? Is there a way to know where each family or stateroom is from? I was thinking about if I make or bring something that is from Texas, is that important to people? Like I said, just trying to come up with fun ideas.

Thanks!

Hey everyone!!

Exciting news! No, Nemo isn't here yet... any day now really... but I have convinced my grandparents to join us on the cruise!! They had a GREAT time last time, they just felt like it was too short. I haven't booked their cabin yet, but as soon as I do I'll let you know the details for the FE.

YellowRose: I'm from TEXAS (!!) too! We are in DFW and I would love to get Texas themed goodies! Thankfully, I think this weekend I figured out a plan for my FE gifts! WOOHOO!

Has anyone ever reserved a cabana on Castaway? I hear that it will only hold 10 people, I would assume that the infant counts "as a person" since it counts as a person in your stateroom. Which would mean that my count is one too many. BUMMER!! Either way, it's cool, we are going to be on Castaway Cay, which is my other happy place!!
