We use it on the inside of our door with info for the current day.

Date
Port
Excursion
Dinner Restaurant
Clothing requirement; ie cruise casual, pirate etc.

It answers alot of ?'s from DH.
It wasn't my idea but I was a member of the FE group which gave those boards as our gift. Glad you liked it and are still using it!

We received a first aid kit once. It was actually a plastic travel-style soap dish with band-aids, Neosporin packets, individual packets of Tylenol, alcohol wipes, a mini Purell hand sanitizer and castile soap towelettes inside. I still have it and took it with me when DH and I traveled overseas in Feb.

Wow some people are really crafty! My first FE Exchange is a huge group but we are going to try our best to give memorable FE gifts ( hopefully memorable in a good way)

I won't join large groups now ... I don't have the time, money or luggage allowance to cater for too many cabins. It spoils the FE for me if it gets too big. I like 10-15 cabins only. Good luck with yours.

How many are in a fe normally? I did my first one and I Loved it but there were like 35 and it was crazy to be creative or invest too much money.....
