We are flexible and will do what the majority want to do. We did about 30 cabins on our last Eastern Caribbean, then did 80 on the Hawaii cruise in October. Around 30 seems very manageable (and 80 got rather expensive), so I would agree with spitting if the number grows much larger.
Thanks to those who take on the task of organizing this, and thanks to all who participate. It's a great way to add a little magic to the cruise.

I think spitting would be a good idea. I too am worried about how I will transport so many things on the plane and I hate to have to leave things behind if we run out of room. I think 20-25 would be a reasonable # and that way we can do more for each cabin if we like

I'm on the fence

Since this is our first time cruising (and doing FE, obviously), I just don't know what my opinion is.

We are coming all the way from BC (Canada), so the packing of all the stuff might be an issue, but since I haven't decided what I'm doing yet, I can be fairly flexible, too.

So, basically, I'm willing to go along with what the majority thinks!

40 sounds like a good number to me. I wouldnt want to go much higher than that. Are you going to try to put the groups in close proximity to each other? I plan to give things that can be used (or enjoyed) during the trip.

Close proximity? I plan on having the girls just draw names and alternate putting them on a list....I figure it's random and no-one can complain on the list they are on. Not that anyone would but I just want it to be random! I figure after eating so much, walking the ship won't hurt any of us.

At this point we have 31 families so I am not sure we will have many more join cause the prices have gotten so high. We haven't had anyone join since the beginning of Feb so this might be it.

Hello Christi Just curious if you have thought about the pink champagne meet? No biggie, I just thought I would ask.

OK Beth, I went and did it!!! I bit the bullet. I booked my airfare now. I found some from Syracuse to Orlando for $250 pp r/t and I know I wont find it cheaper when Jetblue releases their schedule. It is just so crazy expensive to fly from here, so I think that will is a good deal expecially at Christmas time. But I still will be watching for when Jetblue does release their fares.

WOOHOO!

I would totally jump on it if I found those rates! Southwest was $280 rt for our trip in June for the gym meet in Savannah. (Flying into Savannah was $500 rt! Yikes) I'm still watching them closely. I can't find anything less than $434 right now. REALLY hoping SW or (preferably) Jet Blue can do better, esp because the flights are direct too. We shall see!

CONGRATS on getting that done! I will be so excited when I have airfare booked!!

Syd just said , why don't we drive to Robin's and fly out with her.. Is it a straight flight? If not where is your layover.....ya know I need all the details in case we can fly together again. Although that didn't work out well in 2011 for us...

Just an update.....we have 32(31 families) rooms in the FE so far. At this point I am thinking not to split. What is an amount people would like to split? I am thinking if we get 40, then split in 2 FE lists of 20. After that then people joining will be added to each list rotating between them. If 40 is too much for someone please let me know....????

Hello, Michelle.
Since you asked... was thinking that limiting an FE list to 15-20 families would be easiest to manage personalizing gifts and transporting them. However, we'll go with the majority.

Re: Pink Ladies... how can I pitch in?
Also, many thanks to the FE Coordinators!

I layover in Washington DC on the way down and Cleveland on the way back. I wanted a direct flight but that would have cost me $383. pp r/t' For that price difference I dont mind the layover.

Michelle, I know you will find cheaper air than I did flying from your city. I just dont get why Syracuse has to be so dang expensive!!!

I can't wait till Spirit or Southwest release their dates. Right now it is $400 r/t for us....that is $1600...way to much. I will ride down in my parents motorhome instead. Sheesh!
