FE........

You can probally find alot of info out there on the boards.

There is a HUGE thread about it...

BUT BASICALLY.......
It is a fun game gift giving event that dissers do on the ship.
Outside of each door (i suppose it is the same on the fantasy and the dream)
is a decorative fish, where you could receive "mail" from various areas of the ship....Like an invitation to the kids to join something in the kids club.

On this FISH we dissers hang what we call a FISH EXTENDER, it is a sort of mail box extender, most people use a long piece of fabric with various pockets in them ( yet i have seen other things used, such as purses back packs, plastic pumpkin heads,stocking etc.)

On any given day...either arranged by the FE coordinator or otherwise, dissers deliver a small gift or token to each room involved in the FE event.
These gifts can be of any function, idea, or thought....such as, removable tatoos, bubble gum, rubber duckies, cd, moon pie, small bottles of alchohol, bandaids, bandanas, candy....you name it.

Lots of people will either give soemthing with a date of cruise on it, homemade or otherwise, or maybe with their name on it, or from their hometown, or from somewhere the cruise has gone.

That is really a cool idea...We would be interested in doing it as well for the cruise.

Ticker Ques-
I am probably not the person to ask since it takes me forever to do one. I just find someone who has one and double click on it. It will usually bring you to the site they created theirs on. It then allows you to customize on for yourself.

Here is where I get lost...you then need to (will be back - need to do it) Okay back... click on User CP on top, click on Edit signature, and then cut and past from the site your created the ticker...use the url link if it gives you options. Preview and save. It may take a little tweeking but you will get it from there. I am not the most computer savy individual.

As for your FE question. On our last cruise we had 35 cabins, it was a lot of delivering but the kids had so much fun giving and getting. We gave a survival bag that had highlighters, rubber bands, bandaids, safety pins etc...and my husband added two small bottles of rum and vodka, stating that was for the guys. I learned a lot about the ship and met many people why we delivered. It did take up an extra suitcase but like I said it was worth all the work. The kids loved the magnets, coloring things and homemade tablets! - well, they loved everything. But some people were just so creative.

We delivered when ever we wanted, no set rules. Most people were done at the end of day two for the 4 day cruise but there were some straglers at the last minute. Go on to etsy.com to get an idea of what the FE look like, there are people there who make and customize them.

We're booked on this cruise as well. We had a dummy date booked from our May 2011 Dream sailing - and waited until the 2013 Fantasy dates were released and voila - picked this one! We usually cruise in the Spring, but the prices were horrific, even way more than this sailing. So, here we are!

Have any of you don the 7 nighter before? We have done 5 four night cruises with DCL. I admit, I am a little nervous about 3 sea days and considered moving to the western for the extra port day.

I will have to go see what room we are in, I forget! It will be me, DH, DS who will be 11 and DD who will be 8. It is so FAR off!

Hi Zalansky!!

Yes we have done 3, 7 nighters and 1, 5 nighter.

I prefer the 7 nighters just for the longer time on the ship. And i love the sea days.

I really feel like a am on "vacation" on the sea days ..... i dont have to get up at a certain time for an excursion, I can stay in my bathing suit all day and lay in the sun weather permitting. One cruise day i actually wore my pjs all day and found various places on the ship to lounge and read a book carried my little blanket with me too as it got pretty cold out and In.

I dont skip dinner very often....I am too much of a busy body for that, but one sea day i even skipped dinner in the dining room so i didnt even have to get dressed just ordered room service and watched the sea roll by.

If you are not into lounging, being on the ship before you know there is plenty to keep you and kiddos busy on the sea days.....games movies tastings tourings parties etc

Happy New Year, everyone! Now we can say we cruise next year! ok, so its still almost 2 years away, but...


And look at how our group is growing!

We got a reminder packet in the mail from DCL over the holiday. It has info on when our final payment is due, and when we can book excursions.

Hi we are hoping to stay at the Bay Lake resort for about a week before our cruise because of the long flights over we like to stay for 3 weeks but it will depend on the flight prices/times when they come out.
We have only stayed in the POR Mod resort which we really enjoyed but we haven't stayed at CSR so can't comment about that resort. Good luck choosing a resort
