I would like to participate. No cabin # until we get on the ship, we did the kids sail free deal, and thats how the cruise line seams to do it. Unsure if I get a room # prior.

What is the disMeet? I thought this was the DisMeet? Is there one on the ship?

Keep checking your reservation on line- one day instead of GTY for room # you'll have an actual #!

The DISmeet is usually held in the Promenade lounge on the afternoon we board. It is just a chance to put faces to the people we've been chatting with here and meet the FE group. It's a nice chance for the kids to meet so they see some familiar faces in the club.

We are booked

We just booked as well. It will be my wife and three kids - 12 (son),11 (son), and 6 (daughter) + me.

We are all looking forward to getting away from the cold weather.

My family and I will be joining this cruise. We are very excited. We have been on a 7-day Mexico Riviera cruise before. I am trying to understand what we will be missing from the 7-day cruises. From what I have read, there will be no character breakfast.
Does anyone know if there will be a semi-formal or formal dinner on a 5 day cruise?

Morning,

I was told that there would be a semi-formal on night two and pirate night on night four.

Thanks!

Smile FE List

I'm willing to put together the list of those who wish to participate. I've never done FE but if Moomy-san would be willing to guide me, I think I can do it. I'm a planner and it is killing me to not be able to have the FE already mapped out.

My idea is if everyone who wants to participate, either responds to the post or PM's me(for more privacy) with their cabin number (I understand there are some who do not have a cabin number yet, we can leave them as TBD) and children's names with ages. I will put together a list to distribute either before (my preference) or as we board. I think if there are (for example)10 families who want to participate, we can just desiginate two families a day to place their goodies in the FE, that way there is something for them everyday. Is that basically how it works?

Also, for those who have cruised before, we are celebrating my daughter's birthday on board. Besides having the room decorated and a cake at dinner, is there anything else I can do to make it special?

Sorry for the long message.

Lori

I made a spread sheet & posted on a FB page that was private just for cruise members & then people could see it, add to it, & print it out. Do you want to go that route? I can start the page & post the link here.

I should have specified that this is for the first part of our b2b cruise. We did not specify what day the gifts should be handed out.

I'm okay with FB, but I'm not sure everyone has an account. I only suggested assigning dates to avoid everyone putting stuff in on the same day and then nothing the rest of the cruise. Any suggestions for how to run it are greatly appreciated. I've never done FE, it's our first cruise, so I'm running blind.

Everyone in our first group had Facebook & one didn't so they signed up. I think most groups don't assign days & it just works itself out. The first parts of this trip is the first time I ran an FE so I'm no expert by any means. The FB idea was suggested to me by others on the a disboard thread because they felt its easier to work with in regards to posting the list. If you want me to start the FB page I can do it now since I'm home for a bit

If you decide to do assigned days, can I make a suggestion? Assign every family a number and draw them from a hat to assign the days, this way the anonymity remains even with the organization.
I personally like it being personal choice about when you deliver your gifts. The ship is BIG and it takes a lot of time to deliver them all at once. We split our deliveries into 2 days. It's also nice to wake up and have stuff in the FE- and then also late at night to return and find stuff!

I also would like it it to be my choice too so I can do it during down time!

I now have a room # : ) for the FE

Should we open a Facebook Private Group? May be easier and faster to communicate back & forth? or no? Anybody against opening a Facebook Group? (Privately so nobody can look into what we are talking about such as names and room #'s , kids, etc....?) If yes, I wouldn't mind starting one!

So EXCITED! We told the kids, Couldn't keep it a secret any longer! Already started getting some things together!

Still looking to see where we will stay 2 nights prior to the cruise. Its making my head spin!

Oh, and renting a car from FLL to Miami (there are FREE car rental shuttles that will bring you to the port and pick you up from the port)
