Speaking for my family, we are planning a cabin gift per night (16th, 17th, & 18th). Said gift might be a baggie of some goodies you left at home, a craft we have made, or something we have found to be helpful on a previous cruise that you might find helpful as well. If there are children in your group, we will include a couple little goodies just for them. As we are getting so close we don't want it to be too complicated that it keeps people from participating. And we had a couple of groups show interest that only included adults. While most adults won't care what they receive, we cannot leave out those that don't have little ones. Please don't let my comments discourage you. This can easily be accomplished. Everyone loves gum! I already mentioned boxes of easy candy for the movie theater! That would be great for all ages! Who doesn't like to blow bubbles? A foam squishy ball can be fun for a whole group!
I hope no one takes offense at how simple I have implied this can be. I just wanted to make sure anyone who wants to participate will feel comfortable with whatever they provide!!!!

My oldest has informed me that her cabin gifts will have a theme...

Thus far yours is the only pm I have received. I believe needing to have replied to at least 10 posts is not only keeping me from getting messages from some but also keeping them from receiving the messages I have sent.

As for a cut-off---I would like to give a couple of days for others to see we are indeed organizing but would like to say no later than maybe this Sunday evening (April 28th)? That way I can get the list to everyone by Monday morning!!!

Thanks so much!!!! Now to get all the fun ideas out of my head and into some Fish Extenders!!!!

Well I am almost at my 10 posts, so I should be able to pm you soon. I agree with the Sunday deadline, cause I would like to know so I can start putting tags together. It's going to be quite busy at my work in the coming weeks as we celebrate nurses' week.

Did we decide if we should do one gift per family or one gift per family per day. I am thinking since so short notice maybe just one gift per stateroom, but whatever is decided I'll do

LOL, you'll get to your 10 post requirement pretty soon.

I think we are doing one gift per stateroom for each night. But I think it's really up to you. I know 5spens and I are doing it each night.

FE update

We are currently at 7 cabins participating.

That works out to 23 people total--- 17 adults and 6 children.
Boys = ages 13, 6, and 1
Girls= ages 6, 6, & 4.5

Just to give you an idea of age ranges while thinking/working on your treats.

We might be interested in FE - we will have a total of 8 adults, in 4 cabins. Would it be possible to extend the deadline until tomorrow evening, Monday, April 29, so I may confirm with the other parties in my group? Thanks!!

Hi MariaTia, I don't mind the extension. I already sent word to 5spens on my opinion. The more the merrier. Besides, I haven't started making / buying anything yet. Would love to have you included.
