Exclamation FE exchange - to split or not to split...that is the question!

This poll will timeout on April 13!http://http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3092197

P.S. I hope this works and that I didn't mess up...this is the first poll I've created on this Board.

Never been involved in the FE, but there certainly seems to be a lot of interest. What are the guidelines? When are the surprises left in the FEs?

FE Spreadsheet Clarifications

Could the following parties please clarify their FE numbers?

pawhitejr: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 0 children, but there appear to be 3 children listed in the names columns in addition to the 2 adults. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (2, 5, other?)?

finkerbell: There are 2 listings on the spreadsheet under the "finkerbell" disname, and although the cabins are different, the names appear the same. Cabin 7563 shows 3 adults, and Cabin 7043 shows 4 adults (3 with the same names as 7563 plus one additional name). Could you clarify the actual number of travelers (3, 4, 7, other?) and cabin(s) for the FE please?

MEB51: The numbers columns show 3 adults and 0 children, but there appear to be 5 total people listed in the names columns. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (3, 5, other?)?

Kayancam: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 5 children, but there appear to be only 6 total people listed (1 and 5) in the names columns. Maybe there just wasn't enough room. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (6, 7, other?)?

justthat: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 4 children, but there appear to be only 5 total people listed (2 and 3) in the names columns. Maybe there just wasn't enough room. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (5, 6, other?)?

htmlkid: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 1 child, but there is no 3rd traveller listed in the names column. We don't need specific names, but could you please clarify how many travellers for the FE (2, 3, other?)?

Thank you so much!

DH bought one of those handheld luggage scales which is pretty accurate.
We have handheld digital luggage scales too. From REI. Accurate and worth it's weight in gold. I carry it in my carry on and had many questions asked of it in India!!! They had no idea what it was.

Mindy, we're not participating due to space restrictions. Between two cruises and a month away from home, to bring the FE (would need to get my mum to make a second one) and all the stuff would be too much. We have a huge luggage allowance but we need to be able to actually carry all that we have!!!

John, deliveries are made any time between boarding and the last night of the cruise, but usually earlier in the trip esp if its something guests can use right away. We deliver whenever we are headed somewhere so having the list in cabin number order is helpful. Also knowing that cabins with a 0 or 1 for their 2nd digit are portside and those with 5 or 6 are starboard also helps.

I saw someone on a Fantasy cruise said they had been able to reserve a lounge for their meet and greet. Wonder if this is possible for the Magic. Anyone know?

Never found that necessary. Most people are not down in Promenade they are in the pool or their rooms. I think we'll be fine

Yes, it's true. We have one, too! It helped us when packing from our return from the MedCruise in 2010.

Our neighbors in our floor borrowed it, because they were forewarned that the European standards are more strict.

total number of staterooms: 55 (NOTE: 6 of these are families that listed 2 staterooms so if you do one 'family' FE gift, the total is 49)

I will be re-organizing the list by Deck and inserting any GTY room assignments as I hear from folks. The final list will be made available no later than June 1. Currently I have 5 GTY staterooms listed. Also...if folks get upgraded at the port, perhaps that information can be shared at the Meet.
wow! thanks for the info, I better get started

see ya, marianne

I've reserved a lounge for secret mickey events before ... Have to set it up with events group. DCL should give you an email address.

Again, why do you think we may need one? No one hangs at the meet and greet that long because we will have the life boat drill at about 4, we aren't there long enough to warrant reserving a space. There aren't lots of crazy groups like ours. We should be fine. We have never had a problem just showing up at the Promenade.
