FE (Fish Extender) Info

FE Info to read


Hi Everyone!

Here is some info/corrections regarding the whole FE ...

1) It is NOT necessarily giving in secret... This is up to EACH person as to how they want to do it ~ unknown (secretly); w/ name used on Dis boards (ex: tiggerb); known w/ Dis name and real name (you can choose just first name, last name , or both). Often, it sounds like people will also put their town &/state (or country ).

2) There is not a price limit on it... it is up to each person to decide what their limit is.

3) The gifts/treats can be homemade and crafty; store-bought (if food--- must be store bought for customs); cheap and inexpensive; something representing your town, state or country; or more. The sky is the limit for ideas and such....

4) You as the giver can decide if you would like to give one gift /cabin (or family- even if in more than one cabin) or a gift for each family member in each cabin.

5) You deliver the gifts usually just once during the cruise (yet I have read some deliver a few times ) so that it does not feel like a MUST and takes time from you enjoying the cruise yourself. (Just if it is specific for something happening on the cruise ~ ex: Pirate Night and you have pirate trinkets/related items, you will want to deliver them anytime before Pirate Night Day so they may be used and enjoyed.)

6) There is usually a SPECIFIC date for a cut-off date (many say 75-90 days out from cruise date) so you know how many have joined. Yet, some groups allow others to join in later, as long as the person(s) understand they may not get gifts from EVERYONE on the FE list ~ as people may choose to give to only those who joined by the cut-off date.

7) SOME, but not all FE groups may split off into smaller groups if the numbers get too large. ( I have heard of cruises w/ 50+ to over 100+ cabins participating (usually back-to-back, holiday, or summertime cruises --- I know I could never afford to give to that many cabins).

8) You can opt out, but as courtesy to others, the sooner the better as some people make personalized gifts/treat bags.

9) Sometimes, the DISboard cruise link members meet on the first day or so for about an 1 hour to introduce themselves and meet, give any room # changes, etc. ~ I have read where a few people actually give out their FE gifts at this time. ~

10) This is meant to be FUN and EXTRA PIXIE DUST & MAGIC for all involved, NOT added STRESS !

Oh, and 11) I have heard people get their FE gifts onboard via shipping a box (specific size limit) ahead of time, pack them on their carry-ons, or some have used a suitcase/duffel bag for them and then have the room for all those recieved and souveniers.

OK... now I am done. Any questions, feel free to post or ask.

I read somewhere on disboards that groups of women will get together and dress in pink while drinking champagne. I can't recall what the group calls themselves but I think this sounds really fun!

I also recently became the general manager of a winery in MN and am beginning to get really into the wine scene. I think it would be really fun if we did some kind of a tasting, like each of us bring a bottle from a "what is considered for that person" local vineyard or something. Does anyone else think this would be fun!?

TiggerB,

It wasn't hard for me, but I had the link and started the original thread. (shrug). Not hurt or concerned about losing the original, just want to make sure others can find us.

I would love to do the wine meet. I am not much of a wine drinker but live in an area that produces a ton of wine. This might give me an excuse to go on a wine tasting tour of the Willamette Valley here in Oregon.

Wine Tasting

Count DH and I in

We also live in an area with a large number of Wineries. And the reports are that this is an excellent year for wine in Texas

Funny thing is, we had been talking about a week or so ago about bringing some wine from the area and inviting some of the friends we were making to a get together during the cruise.

One point to consider here is the corking fee. We are allowed to bring wine on board, but if we consume it in a public area, we have to pay a corking fee for each bottle opened (I think it was $25 a bottle). There is a way around that fee. We can have the tasting in someone's cabin, or on their verandah and our Winery manager may be able to bring a nifty electric bottle opener
Or as DH just suggested, we could open, and pour in the cabin, and then take the gathering out and about
